Dog friendly holiday with hot tub

Who, What, Where, When, Why, How, Which?

Who, What, Where, When, Why, How, Which? I’m not an English teacher but as far as I know, these are the seven most common words used to ask a question.

Although Who, What, Where, When, Why, How, Which? are the common ones, I’ve always tried to focus mostly on Why? Why should people come and stay at Woodfarm? Why would they come back? Why would they recommend us to their friends and family? But lets take them in the order I’ve always been taught:


Who can come and stay here? You. If you want. You only need to book. You can bring your loved one if you fancy a romantic break in one of our barns, or you can bring family and friends for a celebration in Woodfarm House.


What do we do? Well, that’s fairly easy to answer. We have Luxurious, Dog-Friendly Holiday Cottages.


In the Heart of the Rural Suffolk Countryside. We’re down a country lane outside a village called Stonham Aspal, which puts us right in the middle of this beautiful county, allowing our guests to explore all the very best that Suffolk has to offer within half an hour or so in any direction!


All year round but we get very heavily booked so stop faffing about! Seriously, we are busy all year round – Christmas and New Year are always full way in advance and the weekends particularly get pretty much fully booked all year round so it’s best to get in quick. Just sayin’. Anyway, here’s a link to our Availability and Prices so you can grab your diary!


Why should people come and stay here? This is the big one for me; the driving force behind what we do. From the very start, we have set out to create precious memories for our guests. That’s all we ever did, all we’ve ever done and it’s all we ever do now. I’ve always felt that if we focus on our guests and why they would want to come, come back, and tell others to come, then we will have a successful business model. Has it worked? Read How….


How are we doing? Hundreds of Five Star TripAdvisor, Facebook & Google reviews. That’s how we’re doing. As I write this in February 2017, we have experienced another record year, with higher than ever forward bookings so it must be working.


Which cottage should you book? Well, there’s 7 to choose from so take a look at our Cottage Videos page and choose yours. You can see our aerial video too, which is pretty cool!
