Carl greeted us on arrival which made us feel so welcome. We haven't been away for years as it's so difficult with 4 dogs! Nothing was too much bother for Carl and the barn was gorgeous. Festively decorated with a gorgeous dairy hamper awaiting our arrival. We can't wait to go back in the spring so we can enjoy the lovely garden room and evening walks. Highly recommended
Came here for my 10 year anniversary and couldn't have asked for more.
We met Carl when we arrived and he showed us to our barn. We stayed in the Orwell barn and it was just beautiful. The barn was cosy and warm with under floor heating. It had been subtly dressed for Christmas and we had our very own Christmas tree too.
We had everything there we could possibly need. There was also a welcome breakfast basket. The bacon was gorgeous as were the home made biscuits.
Carl let us know how to work the hot tub and told us about the shed nearby that had DVDs, Books and loads of leaflets to let you know about the surrounding areas.
Carl was the perfect host and such a nice man.
Nice touches make this place a cut above. The 'bike shed' is a mine of information and resources, the Granary Barn had everything laid on to make this a great getaway
We stayed in Deben barn over the weekend 2nd Dec to 5th, our main priorities when looking for somewhere to stay is a well enclosed safe garden for our two dogs and a hot tub and this certainly ticked all the boxes, we've tried a few others over the last few years but this is the best we've stayed at with the best garden and hot tub by far! Carl was the perfect host he greeted us on arrival and showed us around the barn explaining everything we needed to know and said he was just a phone call away if we needed anything at all! The breakfast hamper was lovely and the other hamper and champagne we got as a special offer was very welcome, Carl had even gone to the trouble to make sure there was some gluten free biscuits included for me which was very much appreciated, it's these extras that really make the difference and make your stay so much more enjoyable! The dog's loved the garden, the walks and the log burner! The weather was quite cold but with the under floor heating and the log burner we were actually too hot and had to override the heating to nighttime mode a couple of times! We'll definitely be returning next year and would like to try the other hot tub barns available as they all look beautiful! Can't wait to return!

I was given the website for Woodfarm Barns by a friend who had come across it when doing a general search for accommodation in Suffolk. After looking at the site I immediately booked Gripping Barn for a break in November. We arrived just before it started to get dark and we're immediately impressed with the setting. Carl came and met us and walked us through the property explaining how things worked - brilliant touch. We also loved the breakfast basket and the communal shed full of leaflets for local attractions and DVDs. The little touches made this property one of the best we've ever stayed in. I would definitely recommend and, in fact, we have already given the website details to two sets of friends. We are also thinking about booking for next year - the only problem is that we are unsure when for....summer, winter or both??
