We are becoming increasingly popular with brides and grooms using our luxury Suffolk holiday cottages as a base for their Suffolk Wedding. We work very closely with ‘All Manor of Events’, a great Suffolk Wedding venue just ten minutes from us and we recently worked together, helping to make Kyla and Charlie’s wedding special
All Manor of Events have a fabulous wedding venue just ten minutes away, which is great for us. We don’t host weddings and they don’t have holiday accommodation so we are always referring enquiriers back and forth. Katie and Andy have a marquee lined barn and beautiful grounds, and are now experts at hosting weddings since they held their own there in 2004
As we (hope) we are the experts in luxury holiday cottages in Suffolk, they regularly put brides and grooms to be in touch with me
One such enquiry was from Kyla who was getting married at All Manor of Events in Spring 2015. She was looking for a Suffolk holiday cottage to host a few family and friends up to the wedding and then for the bride and groom to stay on the night of their wedding
Well, it all went swimmingly and we were delighted to have them here. Kyla has been kind enough to share her story and some of her and Charlie’s photo’s from their wedding day;
“After getting engaged on New Years day and knowing we were going travelling around the world for 2 to 3 years in September, I only had 4 months to plan our dream wedding. I managed to book the perfect wedding venue, All Manor of Events in Henley but had left it to the last minute to try and find private accommodation to stay in the night before and the night of our wedding.
With being new to Suffolk and having to accommodate for 6 people on the first evening and then my husband and I on our wedding night, I thought I had no chance in finding anything suitable.
I spoke to All Manor of Events and asked if they could recommend a venue near by that would be suitable to house all of my guests travelling up from the South but that would also be picturesque enough for the professional photographs and have the perfect Suffolk country side setting that we wanted. They recommended that I speak to Carl the owner of Woodfarm Barn as they felt his facilities ticked all the right boxes.
That night I went on line to view Woodfarm Barn and instantly fell in love with their Large house which is an old cottage painted in the a bright Suffolk yellow with a thatched roof and sleeps 7. I could not believe how beautiful the location was in which the house was situated, as well as the reasonable rates and the fact I could book 2 nights and it was close to the wedding venue.
The next day I phoned Carl, who I found incredibly helpful as nothing was too much trouble even though I felt as though I asked a million and one questions. After the telephone conversation I went on line and booked. The booking process couldn’t be simpler and confirmation of the bookings and payments were sent immediately.
In the four weeks leading up to our stay we decided not to go and have a look at Woodfarm Barn but to wait until the actual day. Well all I can say is …. It was worth the wait!
The house and its surrounds are absolutely stunning, no description on line or photographs do it any justice. Upon arrival Carl was there to welcome us, and after quick introductions, proceeded to show us around the beautifully decorated house which had everything and more that we could have wanted.
Even with having 6 people the house, it is big enough that you don’t get under each others feet and the house is decorated in a way in which it feels very much like home, would be the best way I could describe it. After 15 minutes of being there me and my sister in law to be, managed to lock ourselves out much to the amusement of Carl who was there is a flash to assist.
After spending two nights at the House in Woodfarm Barn, I can say that not only is it great value for money but the service is excellent and you definitely get more than your money’s worth. Woodfarm Barn caters for all, whether you are a family or a group of friends staying in the large house or a couple staying in the little barns. No matter the occasion whether it be a weekend away or a weeks holiday, you have a great time guaranteed.
Thank you again Carl for adding to our special day.
Mr & Mrs Howieson”
We wish Kyla and Charlie all the very best for their future
