holiday barn at night in Suffolk

The Times and Twee Gebroeders

The Times featured our beautiful Dutch Barge Twee Gebroeders this week in their ‘weekend’ supplement

We are so pleased that The Times saw fit to put a little piece into their ‘weekend’ paper on Saturday February 3rd 2018.

They had a page on ‘Love Nests – Great places for two’, in The Times Travel section, featuring 16 suggestions around the country and Twee Gebroeders was one of them!

The Times said “Get away from it all on a converted Dutch sailing Barge on the River Deben in Woodbridge, Suffolk. There’s plenty of character onboard, with a red range in the galley, portholes and wood cabinets throughout. It’s only a short walk to nearby restaurants and pubs”.

They weren’t wrong about the standard of the finish aboard Twee Gebroeders. The previous owners had spared no expense when refitting and refurbishing her. All the wood cabinets mentioned in the article were lovingly made by hand but a Suffolk craftsman and the pretty range cooker cost a pretty penny too! Before all of that she was fully insulated and had a domestic central heating system installed to ensure all the creature comforts when you’re enjoying your unique holiday in beautiful Woodbridge.

Since we ‘launched’ (pun intended) the Woodfarm Barge brand in July 2017, we have experienced booking activity beyond our initial expectations but we could always do with more so undoubtedly this article in The Times will help. In fact, since I started writing this Blog Post we have already had bookings attributed to The Times so that’s cool! (I’m not a slow writer, I started it on the Tuesday and finished it on the Wednesday!).

Interestingly the first booking to come in was for our other barge Onderneming at Pin Mill, which wasn’t even mentioned! The power of the media and people digging a little deeper hey?

Well, the article didn’t say a lot so do take a look at the photos and Youtube videos we have for Twee Gebroeders, and Onderneming if you wish, and you’ll soon see what all the fuss is about and why we got a little write up in The Times. Hope to be seeing you aboard sometime.
