On our way back from a lovely relaxing weekend in the Deben barn. One word - perfect! Everything was thought of down to little touches like a biscuit for our labradoodle Louie. The breakfast basket was delicious you can't beat fresh bread, bacon and eggs!
Very dog friendly surroundings so nice to be able to go away with our pooch and relax! The hot tub was the highlight for us amazing after long dog walks to just relax with some champagne and unwind even in the torrential wind!
Carl was very welcoming and hospitable we will definitely be making Woodfarm Barns an annual trip away!
Amazing!!

“Absolutely Perfect!!”
Reviewed November 23, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed at Woodfarm Barns this weekend and have just arrived home today. I was frantically searching google for a getaway that was pet friendly for my boyfriends birthday and I came across Woodfarm and the Debden Barn. After looking at all of the stunning pictures and realising it had a hot tub i knew it was perfect and my boyfriend loved it! Along with our one year old border collie buddy.

Upon arrival Carl was very helpful and welcomed us, showed us the barn and handed the keys over. We were very happy with the delicious breakfast hamper and buddy loved his treat!

The garden was Great for us as buddy likes to wonder outside and everything was enclosed so we didn't have to worry about where he was as we knew he couldn't escape. We thoroughly enjoyed the heated floors, after returning from long dog walks in the freezing cold and walking in the front door to that lovely heat was great.

We visited many places such as 'hoppit wood & lake', 'the needham lakes' and the 'coddingham village' where we found a great trail walk through many fields and country lanes. Our favourite was the 'Eastbridge Pub & Dog Walk', I would definitely recommend it if you like s long walk through fields, country lanes, forests and on the beach. You start at the 'Eels Foot Inn' pub and the walk is around 5 miles and the drive was around 40 minutes. We loved it and the dog sleep all afternoon whilst we enjoyed munch deserved relaxation time in the hot tub!

Another perfect touch to the barn was the robes and the slippers. They were so comfortable and warm before and after the hot tub. I think it was -3 degrees one day and we even had snow, but it doesn't matter because when your in the hot tub it feels like it's 30 degrees.

Overall the stay was perfect and we are going to be returning again in April and we are definitely going to come back every 6 months. We loved it so much and Carl was so friendly. 5 stars for everything from us. See you again soon and I have recommended to all of our friends!!

Ps, make sure you read through the Blue folder and the reviews book. They are so helpful if you don't know the area!

Natalie, Lucas and Buddy the border collie!!

“Relaxing comfortable & very dog friendly”
Reviewed November 20, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We spent a great week (in spite of the weather) with our springer spaniel in Orwell Barn. There
are lots of walks for dogs close by and so many places to visit within easy driving distance When we returned in the evening we were able to relax in the hot tub which has just been installed. This is outside but under cover surrounded by pretty lights, candles an ice bucket and glasses to hand. The whole place is a delight.

Thanks again to Carl who has thought of everything to make a holiday extra special

“A peaceful cosy retreat - as promised!”
Reviewed November 11, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

These dog friendly cottages have everything you need. Each barn is different but all the gardens are secure, the welcome is second to none, the linen was high quality, the barns were spotless and well heated (included in the price) (there was even a wind up torch provided (it's very dark without street lights!))

Already recommended to colleagues without children! A perfect haven. Thank you Carl.

“A real tonic!”
Reviewed November 11, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Woodfarm Barns gets 5 stars all the way from us. We stayed in Deben barn with our dog, Dora and from the moment we walked in on a late, dark, cold November evening, the stress just melted away.
The owner, Carl made our arrival seemless, even though he couldn't greet us personally, due to our late arrival. When we met him the following morning, it was like being greeted like a member of his family, the welcome was so warm and friendly.
He really has thought of everything to make your stay as relaxing as possible. The breakfast hamper and dog biscuit were a real treat. The hot tub was used every day, regardless of the weather, as it was a superb way to round off a day of dog walking and sight seeing.
The barns and surrounding grounds are very well kept and tended to, with attention to reuse and recycle to help the environment, and the Shed is an aladdins cave full of ideas of things to do and places to visit in order to enhance your stay.
If you're looking for a relaxing getaway for quality time, whether it be on your own or with a loved one, we would highly recommend Woodfarm Barns and we will most definitely make a note to return soon. The barns and Suffolk are so dog friendly, you may want to borrow a friends dog for the duration of your stay.

Reviewed November 1, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a truly fantastic stay at Woodfarm barns. Carl is a brilliant host and thinks of all the little extra comforts to ensure you have an enjoyable stay! We loved the Granary barn it was the perfect place to base ourselves for our holiday and it made it even better that our dog Nemo could come with us and enjoy the holiday and he was made to feel so welcome too! We will definitely be returning and we already can't wait to be welcomed back to Woodfarm barns!

“The best just got better”
Reviewed October 30, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We are frequent visitors to this lovely part of Suffolk and we always stay at the barns when we are there. This time we stayed at Deben barn and as with the other barns it is cozy, clean, warm, stylish and situated in a quiet corner of Stoneham Aspal - perfect for seeing and enjoying Suffolk. Carl as always only wants his guests to enjoy themselves during their stay and his latest venture continues to add to the experience. The hot tub is a wonderful addition to Deben barn and there is nothing quite like sitting in it, champagne in hand, watching the beautiful night sky. It is a welcome relaxing end to a lovely day in the surrounding areas. There are lots of walks to do, lots of pubs to visit and lots of places to see. A brilliant stay as always.
