We’re dog-friendly

We say this on nearly every page of our website – but we still get questions about our dog-friendly status! Yes, we welcome up to three dogs on each of our Barges. Included in your holiday will be necessities to keep your dog happy, including dog treats in your welcome basket, dog poop bags, towels, and more. There are plenty of walks and activities for you and your dog to enjoy in Suffolk, and you don’t even have to venture far from your Barge!

 

Fantastic reviews and awards

Our guests love staying at Woodfarm Barges, and we have many who return year after year! Guests have described our Barges as ‘authentic’, ‘unique’ and ‘exceeding all expectations’. But don’t just take our word for it! We have an entire page of reviews that you can read through at your leisure.

We’re also the proud recipients of the Visit England Gold Awards for both our Barges and Barns, which we’ve been awarded every year since we first launched, back in 2014.

We’re constantly full!

The fact that we’re constantly taking back-to-back bookings is a testament to how popular our Barges really are! And no, this isn’t just us bragging, nor is it a sales technique – we would love to be able to fit everyone in who wants a booking, and we don’t like having to turn people away. We want you to be able to enjoy our Barges just as every guest has before you, so it’s important to book right away if you see a space in the calendar that fits your holiday dates.

Excellent location

Our Historic, Dutch Holiday Barges are located in blissful Suffolk, in the midst of nature but conveniently located near fabulous amenities such as riverside restaurants and independent shops. Onderneming is moored on the River Alde in the one-of-a-kind village of Snape Maltings, while Twee Gebroeders is moored on the River Deben at the Tidemill in Woodbridge.

View before you stay

We know it can be difficult to make your mind up about where to go on holiday, as there’s so much choice out there. That’s why we’ve got plenty of info, images and videos to show you just why you should stay with us. We’ve just about covered everything you need to know about our Barges on this website, but if you have any more questions, feel free to message us at any time and someone will get back to you.

We’re expanding to Tuscany

It won’t be long now before we can welcome guests at our breathtakingly beautiful Holiday Cottage in the heart of the Tuscan countryside in Italy. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing countryside break with warmer weather, a Mediterranean culinary exploration, picturesque views that would make any avid photographer swoon – or all of the above! – then visit our Woodfarm Tuscany page to know more and follow our progress.

We love to give away free breaks to our Woodfarm VIP Rewards Group. You don’t have to have stayed with us to become a member, and it doesn’t cost anything. All you need to do is sign up to our email list here and you could be selected to win.
