I went here for the first time with my fiancé and 2 beagles at the end of November for my 30th birthday. We were greeted by Carl on arrival and shown to the Orwell Barn. A beautiful hamper was left for us with enough for several days, and treats for the dogs. The barn itself was warm and cosy, everything you'd need for a self catering getaway. The hot tub was ready for us at any time we wanted to use it, and enclosed garden and meadow over the road just perfect for our girls Great that the barns cater for more than 1 dog. The place overall was stylish, clean and although all the barns were occupied, it still felt we had our own privacy. We were not bothered during our 4 night stay, only by Carl to deliver a parcel that was delivered for my birthday but we felt if we needed anything at all Carl would have been happy to help. We would 100% recommend!
We have just returned from a wonderful 5 day break, Carl met us on arrival he was very welcoming, the breakfast basket was lovely for us, we were able to have a nice hot drink straight away as we unpacked with the lovely home made biscuits included too, the doggy goody pack was fantastic for our 2 dogs also. It was a very relaxing break made even more special that the garden was completely dog proof, we have been to other places that say they are when we have found out that they are not!! which meant that we could relax in the hot tub knowing that they were safe in the garden with us. Carl has thought of everything, all the little things you need, in the kitchen there was cling film, kitchen roll, tea, coffee, sugar etc which meant that we needed for nothing, very well equipped with cooking things.Towels, slippers & robes were provided for the hot tub which was fab.Carl was at the end of the phone if we needed anything nothing was too much trouble. The meadow was great for the dogs they had great fun running around in this & it was nice that we were able to shelter in the boat seat if it was raining, the small enclosed paddock inside it is such a great idea for older or sensitive dogs.The cottages are in the middle of nowhere yet is was not far to get to where ever you wanted to go, lots of lovely places to go & walk, the seaside & places to eat, just check before you go if they allow dogs in, as we found that they don't all.It was great to relax in the hot tub after a day out, then watch a DVD in front of a lovely fire,Carl has a shed stocked full of DVD's if you forget to take your own to borrow which was fantastic. We had an amazing relaxing break & we will be coming back & recommending to family & friends. Thanks Carl you are doing a great job.
We had the most wonderful weekend break staying at the Alde Barn. It was everything that we asked for and more - a warm welcome, privacy, romantic setting, incredible hot tub and very generous breakfast basket. The detail of the barn both inside and out was beautiful and we look forward to returning in the future.
We stayed in the gr@nary barn, what a treat. A wonderful cosy barn for two people, all home comforts and attention to detail makes such a difference. Dog friendly, great location, private garden and a great welcome hamper. Thank you Carl it was wonderful.
Absolutely amazing place and really enjoyed our weekend with our little one and 2 doggies. From the moment you walk through the door it's not hard to see why it has 5 star ratings. The care and attention to detail given by Carl is second to none and makes you feel very welcome from the start. Perfect location for exploring Suffolk with lots to see and do. The welcome basket, log burners and of course the hot tub are very luxurious and make the stay all the more special. Thanks again for a wonderful break and can't wait to rebook!!!
We have been regularly going to Woodfarm Barns almost from the start of Carl’s adventure and we have to say it just keeps getting better. This time we were staying in our most favourite barn -Alde but now this lovely barn has a beautiful large hot tub to add to the enjoyment. The beautifully built outside enclosure which houses the hot tub has all the little touches needed to make this a memorable experience. There is a small seating area and glasses for your wine, beer or juice. Robes/towels are supplied so all you have to do is relaxed. This is the largest of the hot tubs and was very roomy. The garden area and further seating area adds to the experience. Surrounded by trees you are neither overlooked or disturbed. Not forgetting the immaculate barn and a much welcomed breakfast hamper, this was a weekend that was most needed and enjoyed. Carl has thought of everything.
We have just returned from a week staying in Orwell Barn. Lovely welcome from Carl.
Cottage has everything you could possibly need, a scrumptious breakfast basket which lasted several days & Belle (our Springer Spaniel) loved the doggie treats! She also loved the meadow over the road. We enjoyed the hot tub every evening after days out exploring the countryside.
Hoping to return next year.
