We stayed in Gipping barn for a long weekend for my birthday. From the moment you get there you feel relaxed. The setting is beautiful and just far enough away from the hustle and bustle. This was our first dog holiday and I thought we would worry more than we did but she loved her surroundings, relaxing and exploring in the safely enclosed garden so we could relax in the hot tub, which was amazing.
The breakfast basket upon arrival was a favourite of ours as it had a little bit of what you would like in it. Such a lovely touch.
We would highly recommend to all family and friends.
Thanks Carl and staff for helping make our stay a lovely relaxing one.
See you again soon.
Our two families and members of our bridal party hired the whole of Woodfarm Barns for the Easter long weekend as our wedding accommodation. Having the whole place was amazing - we had our own barns for personal time and the farm house and hot tubs for group and family time. I can't think of anywhere else we could have had that group experience - certainly no hotel and no Air BnB would have been large enough! Carl and his staff were fabulous and the barns are all wonderfully presented with fine attention to detail.
The love and thought that has gone in to these barns is truly outstanding. The fire was set up for us simply requiring a match upon arrival, the atmosphere was fantastic, everything from the temperature of the rooms to the hot tub was stunning, carefree and effortless. The breakfast basket produce are all locally sourced. Carl the owner was warm and friendly and I have never experienced such attention to detail and thoughtfulness, It really is an amazing place to stay dog owner or not. I was shocked to find that you could even borrow bikes for trips out, this guy really has put is effort in the right place his warmth and love is woven through out these idyllic barns. The area is well situated and has many walks, pubs, restaurants and beautiful towns and cities to visit. its not to far from the coast and there is plenty of things to do and see. The information provided was very professional and given in a couple of formats, from a paper based folder in the barns, to the website. The website is excellent and highly professional giving a really good overview of the many aspects of the local area and the barns.
My partner and I have just returned from our 7th visit to Woodfarm Barns .We go because we get a very warm welcome, the accommodation is perfect and we can use it as a base to see lovely Suffolk. I just thought I would mention that we choose either Deben or Stour barns because all facilities are at ground floor level. Stairs can be a problem for us but these barns make life a bit easier without losing the wonderful barn atmosphere .
We stayed at the Alde for a 2 night escape and it turned out to be the perfect escape. Location is central for places to visit but quite and peaceful to provide the perfect relaxation location. The Alde is perfect for couples, perfectly sized, clean, warm and very well equipped. The welcome hamper is completes the initial welcome. Great find and one we will look to revisit again and recommend to friends and family, very happily
