A lovely stay in a very peaceful location. Friendly locals, very tuned into cyclists giving a wide and tollerant berth. Highly recommend the Black Horse in Thorndon and the Highwayman nearby. Great food and the staff at both establishments offer a great welcome and well deserve the custom. I thought Constable country including Flatford Mill may prove too twee but I was wrong. It is beautiful and interesting the National Trust gardens next to the car park are superb and uplifting! Enjoy your stay here, we have no doubt that you will. Love Woodfarm House

A family get-together to celebrate a big wedding anniversary and a birthday and what an inspired location. Most of the weekend was spent just chilling in Woodfarm House but the walk down the lane to the pretty little church was well worthwhile. The Sunday carvery at the Four Horseshoes in Thorham Magna was excellent but do book! An extremely warm welcome from Carl and any minor queries sorted with no fuss. I’m sure a return holiday is on the cards, maybe to one of the barns. Many thanks Carl

Sunday 30th March 2014 – Six girls having a break from London!;
Such a welcoming place. Felt at home as soon as we arrived and Carl’s friendly immediate responses to emails in the run up were brilliant! The walks and walking routes without the need for a car make this great holiday cottage stand out. OS Map in the bike shed – brilliant!

We had a lovely midweek break – weather was lovely! Woodfarm House was warm and welcoming – it felt like you got a hug when you walked in! Carl has really got the balance right with being there but giving you space to enjoy your lovely surroundings. Great butchers – Huttons in Earl Soham – lots to choose from, good prices and excellent quality. Aldeburgh is only 30 mins away – really bought back childhood memories of fish n chips on the beach wall – lovely!! Chilli shop & Deli – lived up to all our expectations that we’d built up via this books recommendations. Thank you for a wonderful relaxing holiday. We loved Woodfarm House!

Another great weekend and Woodfarm House! The farmhouse is beautiful and such a comfy, luxurious home. As usual Carl has thought of everything we could possibly need. After purchasing some meat from Neaves of Debenham, we would seriously recommend you visit them as we had steaks and bacon cured in Guiness and Treacle and a great leg of lamb for Sunday lunch. The Aga was an experience but produced some great meals to enjoy in the dining room! 2 trips to the Deli at the Chilli Farm to purchase brownies to die for and mouth-watering Binham Blue cheese. We had a lovely afternoon stroll round Aldeburgh and the local dog walks were enjoyed by humans and canine. All in all a perfect weekend and we’ll be back for more! Thank you Carl. See you next year. PS – sorry about all the additional more than usual beer and wine bottles for recycling!

Aside from the fabulous setting; the incredible attentive and warm welcome – Woodfarm House oozes character; cosy comfort, luxury, style and flair – providing the perfect setting for any group of people to holiday; explore or simply kick back and relax! The cottage gives an impression it’s filled to the brim with love; care and romance – allowing one to get lost in imagination – I would love to hear the story of Woodfarm House! Definitely a ‘One to keep’ for a return! Fabulous.
