Love is in the air @ Woodfarm Barns – Romantic Suffolk Holidays

With the emphasis on Romance, Woodfarm is the perfect place to celebrate! Whether it’s your first holiday together, or your 50th wedding anniversary, you’ll find everything you need is here.

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 holiday cottages and privacy to simply be together chilling out in front of the log burner.

Don’t just take our word for it… “A great little barn. Perfect for seeing in our 1st New Year together” – Paul & Penny, January 2012


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.

Staying here in July 2012, Conor & Amanda wrote; “The perfect balance of hospitality and privacy in a beautiful location. We were so taken by the place we even got engaged here last night! We cant wait to come back.”

Wedding Parties

With the beautiful Crowfield Church next door to us, as well as some amazing Wedding venues nearby, such as the stunning Crow’s Hall, Woodfarm is the perfect place to accommodate family and friends in the run-up to the great day and over the celebrations.

With Woodfarm House sleeping 7 adults, it is popular with Bride’ & Grooms’ families, with the happy couple themselves often taking the Granary next door and then family and friends occupying the other barns, making a weekend of it. We can sleep up to 19 adults, plus toddlers and dogs.

We always meet with prospective wedding guests to tailor-make the stay to their needs so why not call us to discuss your plans?


We have had honeymoons in just about all of our barns, as well as the Farmhouse, with some amazing testimonials.

In June 2013 we even had the happy bride setting off from Stour Barn. Congratulations to Stacey & Barry.

The perfect time to celebrate romance! We are always fully booked for Valentine’s so it’s worth booking early.

Again, don’t just take our word for it… “It was beautiful peaceful & blissfully happy on Valentine weekend.” – Robbie, February 2012.


Whatever the Wedding Anniversary, we have a holiday cottage for you to celebrate in style. From a romantic getaway for two in one of our Suffolk Barns, to a full family celebration in Woodfarm House, sleeping seven adults, as well as toddlers, we’ve hosted them all.

Suffolk Wedding accommodation with our luxury holiday cottages

wedding venue bedroom

Weddings and wedding parties have become ever more popular at our Suffolk holiday cottages. We have always had one or two wedding parties use our holiday cottages as a base to celebrate, and 2015 is seeing more and more brides and grooms choosing our relaxed rural surroundings for their Suffolk wedding accommodation.
Crowfield Church for your Suffolk Wedding

With a gorgeous Church next door to us and a number of great wedding venues in the area, our Suffolk holiday cottages provide the ideal base to accommodate family and friends in the run up to your special day and the celebrations that follow.

Suffolk wedding parties at our romantic, luxurious holiday cottagesOur large holiday cottage Woodfarm House sleeps 2 adults and is very popular with Bride & Groom’s families, with the happy couple themselves often taking the Granary next door and then groups of family and friends taking the other barns, making a weekend of it. We can sleep up to 19 adults, plus toddlers and dogs and as we can offer two and three night weekends from Friday night, it’s perfect to plan the wedding in the middle.

Romantic Suffolk weddings at our luxurious holiday cottagesWe always meet with prospective wedding guests and show them around to ensure that you’ll feel at home here and I think that’s the key. Many guests over the years say that our holiday cottages feel so homely and we want to provide an alternative part of your wedding plans to let you celebrate in truly relaxed surroundings.

Weddings in Suffolk

We don’t hold weddings here so you’ll need to find the venue that suits you. What we do do is provide an environment to add some calm to a fairly stressful event, in countryside surroundings and a chilled out, homely feel we have with all our luxury holiday cottages. The other advantage is the ‘flexibility’ of our accommodation, in that you can rent our large Woodfarm House and ‘bolt-on’ as many of our smaller luxury holiday cottage barns as you need.

Wedding accommodation in Suffolk with our luxury Suffolk holiday cottagesThe other part of the ‘flexibility’ of our luxury holiday cottages is that our arrival and departure days are Friday, Sunday and Monday. Previous weddings’ guests have taken Woodfarm House from the Monday before the wedding, with guests arriving on the Friday for the wedding weekend, leaving either on the Sunday or the Monday, so our Suffolk holiday cottages can provide wedding accommodation for whatever part of your celebrations and wedding plans suit you.

We have a growing number of Suffolk weddings with local guests utilising our holiday cottages for their wedding guests coming from far and wide and there is also the room for you to invite local family and friends for drinks too.

We’re not Wedding Planners in Suffolk, but we do have friends in everything from wedding catering to wedding flowers…

There’s so much to plan and whilst we are definitely not wedding planners, we have teamed up with a small number of local ‘business partners’ that you can tap into for extra wedding services should you need it. Our local partners that can help your Luxury Wedding break go with a swing are:

Michelin Star trained Chef Mark Peters of
Just Imagine Foods
Bespoke wedding catering at our luxury Suffolk holiday cottages

Debbie and her ‘pampering’ team at
The Beauty Barn

Bob Scott of
Niche Cocktails

Hen and wedding party cocktails at our luxury Suffolk holiday cottages

Independent florist
Elizabeth Tunstall Flowers

Wedding flowers by Suffolk Florist Elizabeth Tunstall especially for our holiday cottages

Check out their web links and do give any of them a call to tell them that you are looking at staying here and have a chat with them about what they can offer you. They are all friends of mine who have worked here making our guests happy as part of their wedding celebrations and will totally tailor-make a package to suit your needs and budget. Again, you can pick and mix what services will suit your wedding.

Suffolk Wedding Marquee

If you are renting all of our cottages for the weekend then we also have an experienced local marquee firm who can erect a small marquee with all the trimmings as a ‘bolt-on’ extra for a drinks reception if you need extra space for your local wedding guests. Contact Suffolk Marquees directly for a chat.

Suffolk Wedding Venues near our luxury holiday cottages

We have also teamed up with a small number of fabulous, experienced Suffolk Wedding venues that do not have (or have very limited) accommodation:

Crows Hall

All Manor of Events

Columbine Hall

All of our luxury holiday cottages have the ‘Visit England’ Gold Award

We were delighted to be awarded the Visit England Gold Award, reflecting the quality and luxury you can expect here, not to mention our TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for consistent outstanding reviews. At the time of writing we have almost 100 Five Star TripAdvisor reviews.
