A luxury Winter Break in Suffolk

A Winter break at our Suffolk holiday cottages

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year”. Never a truer phrase than on a winter break in Suffolk.

Have a Winter Break in Suffolk at Woodfarm BarnsThe cooler months are still a wonderful time to enjoy a winter break around here. The landscape takes on a very different but nonetheless inviting feel and of course all of our cottages have bundles of cosy charm and roaring log fires to keep you warm and add that touch of winter cosiness

 

The rambling countryside that surrounds us is still appealing in the autumn & winter, with winding country lanes and loads of great public footpaths taking you off the beaten track. You won’t see many people around here whatever the time of year so this time of the year is especially great if you want to get away from it all with your loved one/s

Southwold beach on your Winter breakThe beautiful heritage coast is just half an hour away and still very popular at this time. You’ll be treated to a bracing North Sea breeze to blast away the cobwebs but as long as you wrap up warm.

Suffolk Coasts and Heaths are one of two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty that we have within half an hour of our cottages.

Woodbridge, Southwold and Aldeburgh are all really popular destinations with our guests all year round and you can always pick up some great local beers and wines to warm you up when you get back here.

 

Mouth-watering breakfast basket with your Winter breakYou’ll need to head off for a good walk anyway after tucking into your hearty breakfast from the welcome basket that we provide in all of our cottages.

Free range eggs from Mill Green Farm, bacon from Palfrey & Hall, mushrooms, jam and marmalade from Fruits of Suffolk, tomatoes, toast & butter, all provided as part of your package, along with fresh coffee, tea, sugar, milk, fruit and some cookies.

 

Hot Tubs make your Winter Break

Luxurious Hot Tub options on your Winter BreakWith three barns to choose from with your own, private luxurious Hot Tub, you can enjoy your Winter Break, whatever the weather.

Deben Barn has a Hot Tub on the patio, with Gipping and Orwell Barns having theirs under cover just outside your back door in one of our covered Garden Rooms with opaque roofs letting in light.

Christmas at Woodfarm

Celebrate Christmas in Suffolk on your Winter BreakThis is an extra special time of the year here at Woodfarm and we have always been fully booked way in advance. From the first year when we just had Woodfarm House, the following year when we added the Granary Barn and then the following year when we had the five new holiday cottage barns all up and running.

Our holiday cottages all lend themselves to the cosy charm you would expect from a yule-tide break in the country. With Christmas tree’s to put your presents under and tasteful traditional decorations all around you, it’ll feel like a home from home.

Book early to avoid disappointment!

Whether you are in Woodfarm House, The Granary Barn or one of the ‘Woodfarm’ barns, you’ll relax and enjoy the oak-beamed ceilings and bags of rustic, country charm. Having done this for many years, we have been working hard to strike the right note for our guests, whatever the season. Take a look at the hundreds of reviews from our happy guests on TripAdvisor, Facebook and Google, resulting in the awarding of our Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence and our Quality In Tourism Gold Awards for all seven cottages.

The farmhouse has a wonderful open fire and all six of the barns have great wood-burning stoves so if the temperature drops in the evening then you can get a cosy fire going and chill out with one of hundreds of DVD’s that we provide, again free of charge

You’ll find country lanes, thatched ­cottages, classic out-of-season seaside resorts at Aldeburgh and Southwold, meandering rivers and great pubs & restaurants

Kids are welcome. Woodfarm House sleeps 7, plus travel cots for toddlers and all the barns have room for a travel cot (provided free of charge) See our ‘Have Fun’ page on our Tourist Guide website “Where Do We?” for some ideas on what to do with the kids, big and small! – Just click here for a quick look
