“Perfect - Just Perfect”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

This was our 5th visit to the barns and we have already booked our 6th. That alone should tell you how much we love it there. We have stayed in Alde, Orwell and Stour barns as well as the Woodfarm House. They are all different in their own way but equally cosy and welcoming. The breakfast basket along with tea and coffee means you are already set up for a great weekend. Carl is always welcoming although never intrusive and wants to ensure that his guests are happy. The barns are warm in winter (we know we have been there when it snowed) and cool in summer. The decor and facilities are of a high quality and the wood burning stove is an added bonus. The onsite shed contains bikes (for the active) and books/DVDs/CDs for those who just want to cosy up for the evening. The area is beautiful and there is always an opportunity for a long walk. There are lovely local pubs although you will need a car. We just love it here, we have tried to look for other places in the area but nothing compares to these lovely cottages. Looking forward to visiting again in February.

“Superb find in a lovely area”
Reviewed 2 February 2014 for a stay in August 2012

We had a wonderful week in Stour Cottage at Woodfarm Barns a wonderful cottage in a superb location. The cottage had everything we needed and the owner, Carl '& gang' were most welcoming and helpful, throughout. Carl has created wonderfully relaxing surroundings for the cottages complete with waterfall, out-door pond with carp and outdoor socialising area. Somewhere we instantly decided we would return to. And, indeed, we did; in September 2013.

“A true gem in the heart of Suffolk”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 for a stay in October 2013

What a find! I can't rate these properties highly enough.
I was looking for a relaxing weekend break away from it all for my husband, myself and our dog and was lucky enough to find Woodfarm Barns in the heart of the Suffolk countryside.
Reading the testimonials on their website we were expecting great things and we certainly weren't disappointed!
Woodfarm Barns offers first class accommodation but its Carl's attention to detail that sets them aside from other properties we've stayed in – he really does go the extra mile to make sure his guests enjoy a perfect stay.
The Barns are so well equipped; there really is everything you could possibly need for a wonderful cozy break.
The Barns are set down a quiet road, providing excellent walking and cycling opportunities.
We stayed in The Granary and were fortunate enough with the weather to be able to come back from our long walks and sit in the beautiful enclosed garden (albeit with jumpers on!) in the late October sun - a perfect spot to enjoy a glass (or two) of wine! The wood burning stove was perfect for relaxing in front of when it got too cold to outside – certainly appreciated by Billy our dog who couldn’t be moved away from it!
Although totally dog friendly I’d recommend these properties to anyone with or without a dog – you will not be disappointed! We’ve stayed in some beautiful properties in the past but have never felt compelled to return...testament to Woodfarm Barns, we’re looking forward to our third stay in April!

“perfect break to finish the perfect week.”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

This was our first trip to woodfarm barns and it was truly amazing. A friendly welcome from Carl was also appreciated and settled us in to our long weekend stay. Cottage is offered in an exceptionally high standard and the breakfast basket was delicious. facilities on site also very good and it was a truly peaceful weekend.
Perfect for our little dog too who also appreciated the underfloor heating and log fire. We shall definitely look forward to visiting again.

“Beautiful Romantic Stay at the Gipping Barn”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

My partner and I had our anniversary weekend stay in the stunning Gipping barn last week and what an amazing place ! We have stayed in cottages before for short breaks but this was a totally different experience and worth the time writing this review. From the moment we were greeted, and shown around our cottage for the weekend we felt completely at home but without the stress of daily life! The barn was immaculate and attention to detail really good inc a lovely welcome hamper. We will be back for sure and can't thank Carl at Woodfarm barns enough for making our anniversary special. Definitely coming back in the summer after falling in love with the place.

“Perfect holiday in beautiful Suffolk.”
Reviewed 31 January 2014 for a stay in March 2013

This was our third stay at Woodfarm barns. We had stayed at the Granary twice before and had a perfect time. This time we took the family and the dog for a new year break. As it turned out in the middle of the heaviest snow for years! We stayed at the farmhouse this time. It was perfect. Log fires. A big rib of local beef and copious wine. What more could you want. The local area is lovely with great walks for our golden retriever who loves it here. Carl is a great host and nothing is too much trouble. You can't fault Woodfarm barns for value and quality they really are as good as they look in the photos. Can't wait for our next trip in a few weeks time.

Reviewed 31 January 2014 for a stay in October 2013

We can' t thank Carl enough for creating a little spot of heaven in a dubious world. Have stayed at Deben Barn and The Granary and returning for 5th vist this year. Welcoming, beautiful and soulful, and that's just the start of it. Want privacy and your mind back? This is the place for you. Beautiful scenery and wonderful atmosphere and our host can't do enough for you. Wonderful little details in all the Barns that make you feel like you've entered a world of intrigue as there may be secret passages behind the books. Will return again and again.
