At Woodfarm we have six Suffolk Barns sleeping two, and a 500 year old thatched farmhouse that sleeps seven. We have VisitEngland Gold Awards for all seven of our cottages, as well as well over 200 Five Star TripAdvisor reviews. The Granary barn is our 'Premier Barn' as it is the original 300 year-old grain barn, with tons of exposed timbers.
Our website features an aerial video of the whole place, as well as a Google Virtual Tour and individual videos of each cottage so you can really have a good look around to decide which one you fall in love with for your first stay.
All seven of our cottages are very ‘dog-friendly’ with private, fully enclosed gardens. We normally accept up to three dogs and we even leave a dog treat as well as a delicious local breakfast basket for the humans, consisting of eggs, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, bread & butter, milk, fruit, cookies and even jam & marmalade made in the village!
The Granary Barn is the perfect romantic getaway and dates back some 300 years. We still have in-tact some original ‘inventories’ of Bushels of grain dating back to 1879, that were written on the wattle and daub ceiling of the first floor, for guests to see. This lovely romantic Cottage has ample parking at the front and a large, fully enclosed garden with native hedges surrounding it providing privacy.
All the barns have a cosy double bedroom, wood-burning stove, underfloor heating, and all the modern comforts you could need, combined with exposed oak beams and all the period features you could want for your holiday or mini-break in Suffolk. The Granary Barn features an open plan lounge, dining, kitchen area on the ground floor, with a first floor bedroom and an en-suite shower room, with a beautiful handmade oak feature window with stunning views across the farmland opposite. All of the wall lights and chandeliers in The Granary Barn were handmade by a local forge, to our own design.
The Barns nestle into the mature trees around the pond and waterfall to create a peaceful little environment to relax in and we have a bike shed with free bikes for you to explore the lanes nearby, as well loads of DVD's, Cd's, books and Tourist Information.
