dogsWe are delighted to be working with Fetch’ the online pet store and Zylkène® and hope you have fun entering their competition to win a stay here at Woodfarm Barns.

Your dog needs a holiday too! Dogs account for a massive proportion of our guests to sunny Suffolk and we even allow some of them to bring their well-behaved owners!

We combine a dog-friendly ethos with the luxury that many don’t expect to find in holiday cottages accepting dogs. We don’t simply ‘tolerate’ guests with dogs, we welcome them.
We welcome dogs in all seven of our Suffolk holiday cottages as this is a huge part of the ‘stay at home’ holiday cottage market. We normally say a maximum of two dogs but we are happy to discuss other requirements. We are also happy to discuss other pets with you on an individual basis. We’ve had house cats and rabbits before but it’s mostly dogs!

Welcome Awards at Woodfarm Barns - Pets Welcome in our Luxury Self-catering Holiday Cottages in SuffolkWe are also delighted to have been awarded the Pets Welcome accreditation by the English governing body ‘Quality in Tourism’ backing up our approach

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

Three well-behaved dogs are welcome in all the cottages too – See our separate ‘Pets Welcome’ page at the bottom of this page or have a look on “Where Do We?” at our ‘Take the Dog’ section here

Defined by the Met Office as December, January and February our Winter 2016 prices start from just £248 for a 2 night weekend break.

Birthdays

We have played host to many special birthdays, from 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th even to 80th – The more ‘mature’ celebrations onwards tend to be larger family holidays in Woodfarm House, with a smattering of children & grandchildren. You are more than welcome to put banners, bunting and balloons up on the oak beams, which are in all the cottages

First holidays

The ideal first romantic getaway for the new love in your life. Romance is the key here at Woodfarm, with rustic charm oozing out of every oak beam, lavishly equipped and decorated cottages and privacy to simply be together

Proposals

We have had several proposals here and happily join in with setting your cottage up with flowers, champagne, candles etc in order for you to pop the question. This is what we did for a proposal in 2012 in the Granary Barn, along with Champagne waiting on ice
