Having been here countless times now, including our first staff Xmas meal, I can thoroughly recommend the Four Horseshoes as a consistently great place to eat. There’s a warm atmosphere and it’s always busy (a good sign) – Loads of our guests agree too!
A fantastic day out, just half an hour from Woodfarm Barns; Ickworth is a National Trust property, an amazing house set in 1800 acres of woodland
The origins date back to 1253 with a timber house that no longer exists. What is here now is an impressive house dating back 100 years, with its centre-piece, the incredible ‘Rotunda’ providing an imposing sight as you approach Continue reading Ickworth House – Bury St Edmunds
Aboutfram is an e-newsletter bringing us info on special offers, upcoming sales, new product lines and news of events, all in the area around Framlingham. It’s excellent for us as so many of our guests like to pop down the road to ‘Fram’ either for a meal or a drink, or just a good old nose around. Continue reading “aboutfram” – Framlingham’s great e-newsletter
Ok, just about dipping our toes into Essex but it still feels like Suffolk and it’s only 20 minutes down the road from Woodfarm Barns
Flatford Mill is accessible by road and has a car park. It’s National Trust so if you’re not a member it’s £3 to park. It’s also accessible by foot along the river from Dedham, which is a gorgeous 25 minute walk (Free parking) Continue reading Flatford Mill
A fabulous wild-flower meadow on the edge of the village of Cotton in Suffolk.
Given to the village around the turn of the millennium, it was a four acre site that they have worked on as a community over the last dozen or so years and turned into a stunning beauty spot. They get together a working party each month to maintain pathways etc. in between large areas of a plethora of wild-flowers, many of which have been planted and nurtured.
They have some cracking little areas that have been really well thought out, providing areas of flora and fauna, as well as amazing spots for critters to inhabit the place in completely natural surroundings, particularly down by the little pond.
I was shown round by Andrew Stringer, village resident, local councillor and one of the working party. We found a number of newts, toads and frogs whilst peering under rocks and logs.
A great feature as you walk in is their ‘henge’ structure made from an old oak tree. It is literally a large section of an old oak that has been sliced into 8 segments and then set in concrete in a circle, effectively just opening out the segments, in order. It’s a fabulous sight and great to walk in and out of.
A Pyramidal Orchid
Keen to recycle, they removed the old village bus stop when it was being replaced and resurrected it in the meadow, using it as a shelter-cum-info point.
Not sure if they have a post code as it is a field but just head to Cotton, North of Stowmarket and look for Carters Meadow – it’s not hard to find and it is open for all to enjoy
