Six of us have just returned from a very relaxing stay at wood farm house, the farm house is wonderful with all its original features we loved the open log fire, and had fun cooking on the aga,, We also had three dogs with us, and found the two acre field to be a godsend that’s very much foe a wonderful stay
Carl (owner) was away when we stayed, but his colleague John and the rest of the team could not have been more welcoming. We stayed in Stour barn which was just perfect for us, from the secure garden to contain the dogs, to the hot tub and everything in between. The welcome breakfast basket was fabulous.
On self catering breaks I always pack everything I'm likely to need, but they all remained firmly in my bags because they really have thought of everything. You name it, it was there!
The dogs particularly enjoyed the treats that were left for them, the enclosed paddock over the road and running on the beach at Dunwich Heath (a 35 min drive away).
We enjoyed the relaxed environment and just having the chance to chill with all the comforts of home in a truly dog friendly place.
We had the most chilled romantic and relaxing stay ever here with our dog Ozzie! We chose Deben Barn it was fabulous from the start! There was a basket of local produce, bacon & milk in the fridge and lots of treats for Ozzie! The barn was so comfortable with everything you could think of! We were fortunate enough to have the warmest bank holiday ever so we chose not to venture out apart from some lovely early morning walks! You cross the country road to a field which is enclosed for your dog it's large enough for them to run explore and play also there is another smaller penned off area for any nervous dogs only for the use of Woodfarm Barns visitors may I add! We made lots of use of the hot tub which was brilliant! Although the barns are built in a small close you never really saw anyone so no one was intrusive! There are lots of little areas to sit and relax and a shed full of bikes,CDs and DVDs if you want to use them all FOC! We would thoroughly recommend a stay here and will definitely return Carl has done an AWSOME job of thinking of everything to ensure his guests and dogs have a wonderful stay he is to be congratulated! Well done Carl! See you at Hylands Park Chelmsford for the Dog Show! Xxx
We stayed in the Granary Barn with our new dog and were very impressed with both the accommodation and the area itself. The property was extremely comfortable and the extra details made it feel just like home. The enclosed garden and the 2 acre dog exercise field across the lane were perfect. We had some lovely walks in the countryside and visited some of the local businesses which were recommended to us. The information which Carl provided of places to go and things to do was really extensive and there was plenty to do which would suit everyone. We also made good use of the garden patio furniture due to the amazing weather. A very relaxing and peaceful place to break and will be coming back again in the future.
We stayed for 3 nights in Deben barn and what can I say - we enjoyed it so much I booked another break within an hour of getting home! The barn was really comfortable with a fabulous breakfast basket & Macey loved her doggy treats. Macey can be nervous of boisterous dogs running up to her when off lead so the smaller fenced of area in Woof Meadow was ideal when there were other dogs in the larger field. The enclosed garden & hot tub were very much appreciated. I think my dog was disappointed the weather was so hot we didn’t need to put the log burner on!! There was such a lot of information on dog friendly places to visit and places to eat that we were spoiled for choice. Congratulations Carl on your attention to detail - you really have thought of everything.. All in all a warm welcome and a fabulous place to stay.
We've just come back from a 7 night stay at the Orwell Barn which was absolutely amazing!
We were greeted on arrival by Carl who showed us around the barn and how to work the hot tub along with a lovely basket of lots of goodies for us and the dogs too!
The set up was perfect for us, we have two big dogs so the enclosed garden was perfect so that we could let them run around while we sat outside with a drink in the sun!
We loved having the meadow across the road which is a nice large area Carl has fenced off for the dogs to run around safely. This was a real bonus for us as our dogs are so energetic and the dogs loved playing on the big log.
The area is great too, I hadn't expected to see so many beautiful places but there really is so many and everywhere we went was so dog friendly too!
This was our first trip away with our dogs and it was amazing and even better than expected.
Thank you to Carl and his team for an amazing stay, we can't wait to visit again!
We spent three nights in Gipping Barn with our Bulldog Bella and had a wonderfully relaxing,stress free break. Spoilt for choice for things to do and places to visit within Suffolk,nothing was too much trouble for Carl and his team.......we will definitely be going back and would recommend Wood farm Barns to anyone
