Our Suffolk Holiday Cottage business now has 600 Five Star Reviews! I am so humbled to read every one of them as they come through. What it means to me is that our guests do our advertising for us, without us having to!
I hardly ever post on social media or write newsletters trying to ‘sell, sell, sell’. All we ever do is ‘set out or stall to tell prospective guests what we do. It’s almost ten years since I set up my Suffolk Holiday Cottage business. And over that time I consider myself very lucky to have had so many people not only recognise what we have set out to achieve, but also to acknowledge it by taking the time and trouble to tell the internet.
How many people have a business where their strongest, most powerful advertising is done by their customers? I have! Yes of course it strokes my ego, but I can’t tell you how satisfying it is to not have to launch into a massive sales pitch every time you do something. We just let our customers do it.
We have thousands of guest book reviews from our Barns and Barges now, but to hit 600 Five Star Reviews in the public domain is so mind-blowing!
When we started getting these I was amazed when we hit 100. I absolutely LOVE reading every single one of them. We now have 342 on Tripadvisor, 59 on Google, and 199 on Facebook.
This is a Google one from Lisa, one of regular guests. It’s a comprehensive one but if you want to know what we are all about, without us telling you, then read on. This pic is from Lisa too.
“A little piece of heaven!
We have stayed here several times since 2015 and every time we stay Carl is a fantastic host! Woodfarm Barns has just a handful of Barns for couples to stay with the added bonus of a hot tub as well.
There are not many places to stay which you can take your dog but Woodfarm Barns acknowledge that they are part of your family. With this in mind Carl has gone the extra mile, with spare towels provided, a dog bowl provided to have a drink in the garden, doggy treat on arrival and the best bit now there is Woodfarm Meadow. A large meadow opposite Woodfarm Barns for you to take your dog to run around!!! There is also a small section fenced off for those dogs who would like to have their own space. My dog just loves it so much he just lay’s down on his blanket and relaxes.
Carl provides a lot for a self catering accommodation. Firstly there is a welcome hamper full of fresh local produce so you can have a good breakfast but that’s not all. There is Tea, Coffee, Sugar, Cookies which is great after you arrive from your journey. Carl also provides some basics, salt n pepper, tin foil, washing up liquid, towels, dressing gown & slippers if you have a barn with a hot tub. Shower gel, shampoo, hairdryer the list is endless.
There is a BBQ in the garden which is fab, this means you can buy some local produce to cook weather permitting. However if you don’t want to cook there are lots & lots of places to go to which accept dogs. Woodfarm Barns provide a welcome folder with lots of places they recommend but also previous guests have a folder who can also recommend places for you to go with your dog.
If you are wanting a special touch for example your going stay for a Birthday, Anniversary or you want to pop’ The Question’ to your other half then Carl is your man!!!! Just give him a call and he can arrange a cake, balloons, a pamper session or even scatter rose petals & pop a bottle of champagne in the fridge.
Nothing is too much trouble for him and his team at Woodfarm Barns. Thank you Carl for being such a fabulous host, it is great to see you every time we stay and have a good catch up!! Look forward to seeing you again soon x”
So there you go! Huge thanks to Lisa and the other 599 guests who’ve taken the time and trouble to write us a Five Star Review. I’m very lucky to have all of these, as well as an amazing team to help me run my Suffolk Holiday Cottage business
