“Beautiful barn in lovely surroundings”
Reviewed 2 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stopped at Willows Barn with my girlfriend for a lazy few days to escape what have been quite hectic and stressful jobs lately. Laura found the place on Tripadvisor and seemed to tick all the boxes...and it did! The barn is situated down some lovely quiet country lanes, and we were greeted by a cold bottle of wine and some lovely homemade cakes (which were demolished that evening!)

We then spent the rest of the days relaxing in the private hot tub and playing tennis on the private tennis court. It was nice to be in such a quiet environment, in fact the only disturbance was from an inquisitive little bird who would occasionally knock on the windows!

Before and during the stay Rosalind would keep in touch via text to check everything was ok, which was really nice to know she was there if we had any issues without being intrusive.

The barn really has everything you need for a relaxing break. We didn't use the log burner as we had the God fortune of a beautiful few days weather, but could imagine it would be very cosy whole on the sofa (which Laura and I frequently found ourselves sinking comfortably into like it was our own sofa!)

We've already discussed going back again as I can't recommend highly enough.

We are so pleased that you loved the peace and quiet at Willows Barn and that your break gave you the rest together that everyone deserves from today's hectic lives. The little birds around the garden are gorgeous and often our guests see our resident pheasant strolling around the grounds too! We do like to leave our guests in total peace and quiet and are pleased that you found our courtesy texts before and after your stay helpful and professional. We would love to have you back to stay again - we welcome all our return guests with our usual wine and home baked treats along with a surprise little gift for coming back to us! We hope to see you both soon. kind regards Rosalind and Kevin.

“Amazing place to stay!”
Reviewed 20 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Willows Barns is such a lovely place. Myself and my partner had a lovely Valentines weekend there. Loved the hot tub and wood burner, was very romantic! We were welcomed to balloons/heart shaped chocolates and a bottle of champagne which was a lovely surprise. The owner Roaslind was very helpful and accomodating, couldn't have asked for better service. The barn was lovely and clean and the queen size bed was very comfortable. If you want a relaxing weekend to take away the stresses of day to day life this is definitely the place to stay! Would consider going back in the summer as it would be lovely to have bbqs and enjoy the lovely surroundings in warmer weather.

What a lovely surprise to receive such a fantastic review. Thankyou so much. It was our pleasure to spoil you both for your Valentines weekend. We bought the lovely champagne and heart shaped chocolates from Marks and Spencer as they were so beautifully packaged and the chocolate flower roses for your bedside romantic treats were an extra little touch that we couldn't resist. We always like to help our guests when planning romantic/celebration surprises for their loved ones and we often pop into Willows Barn a special balloon for a genuine bit of pampering! The bed is super-comfy and huge as it is super kingsize and great for a really good nights sleep with a Sealy hotel mattress and lovely Egyptian cotton bedding. We'd love to have you both back in the summer, until then all the best. kind regards Rosalind and Kevin.

“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We booked a few days away for our honeymoon here, from the second we walked through the door we fell in love with the place, from the wine chilling in the fridge to the beautiful card that was left for us by Rosalind and her husband congratulating us on our wedding was just the start of a perfect break, everywhere was beautifully clean and every detail was thought of, the town was a charming little place full of amazing places to eat and very friendly people, we couldn't of been happier and shall be returning many times over, I'm so happy we found this place it really is a little hidden piece of heaven!

Thankyou so much for your thoughtful and kind review. We love a bit of romance at Willows Barn and we love spoiling our guests so we are glad that you loved all the little special romantic touches. We also have a very exacting changeover process in order to keep Willows Barn spotlessly clean - inside and out - and are so thrilled that you found it just right for you both. Framlingham itself is a brisk walk from the barn and just a minute in the car and is a special market town, steeped in history with beautiful buildings and wonderful people running all the shops. Thankyou for recommending Willows Barn as we have been so pleased to receive further bookings from your family members. It will also be an absolute pleasure to have you return to Willows Barn - anytime. With all our best wishes to you both. Rosalind and Kevin.

“Tranquility at it's best.”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed here for 8 days and I didn't want to leave. The barn is so beautifully decorated and every intricate necessity has been thought of. We had beautiful weather even in October so the patio area was lovely to have breakfast on.The hot tub is fabulous and spent hours relaxing in it, and we loved watching a movie in the gorgeous living area. Framlingham is a great little place to stroll around. Rosalind and Kevin couldn't have done a better job creating and running the barn. Thank you again! Warm wishes Anna and Carl x

It was lovely meeting you both during your weeks holiday at Willows Barn. We have decorated the barn with lovely mellow colours and beautiful fabrics which have a country theme reflecting the wonderful natural surroundings of Willows Barn. We have used all our travel experiences to think of everything our guests would need and so we are so pleased you found this useful. The patio is a south facing sun trap so ideal for a morning breakfast or afternoon barbeque. The hot tub is so private and sheltered and right outside the front door so ideal for a stress free soak! We have a varied selection of dvd's for guests to watch and a lovely snuggly john lewis sofa for lounging on. Framlingham is a beautiful market town with lovely shops and restaurants/cafe's. A great place to live and holiday in and we are thrilled you loved it. Very many thanks for your wonderful review. Rosalind and Kevin.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 29 September 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The place was super clean and tastefully decorated. It was my partners Birthday and we arrived to find a cake, card and bottle of wine.
The Hot tub is in private location so that you can relax without being overlooked or disturbed. The owner introduced herself and left us to it. Very relaxing and enjoyable.

Thankyou so much for your lovely review. We take great delight in cleaning and presenting Willows Barn to 5* standard for each and every one of our guests. It was our pleasure to arrange some treats for your partner so that her stay was extra special. We bake our own "signature" treats as a special welcome - currently these are chocolate biscuit squares (one plain and one pecan/walnut/raisin version). We also provide locally bought biscuits and Framlingham vineyard wine which our guests enjoy. I'm thrilled you both loved the hot-tub. It is so private with it's lovely decking and pretty fencing and the barn sits in its own private acre of land within our secure grounds off a quiet country lane. Perfect for lazy lie-ins and forgetting the stresses of everyday life. We hope to welcome you both again soon. regards Rosalind and Kevin
