Wonderfully friendly service from Carl - nothing was too much trouble. The Orwell Barn is a beautiful and we'll appointed barn that sleeps two; small, but perfectly formed!
The location is remote and quiet - perfect for getting away from it all and perfect for long country walks.
If you want to visit some of the surrounding areas and villages then a car is needed (unless you're very big on walking!). Bikes, dvds, books and boardgames are provided free of charge so even if the weather turns bad you can keep yourself occupied.
I will certainly consider a return trip, perhaps with family and friends to stay in the larger Woodbarn House!

This was our sixth visit to Woodfarm Barns. As always the second we arrived all the stress and strains of work etc disappear. Carl as always is the perfect host. Nothing is ever too much trouble. The local area is simply beautiful with so many places to visit, fantastic places to eat and drink (close by you have Aspals cider, and my personal favourite Adnams beer ) Every few months there is a pop up restaurant at Woodfarm farmhouse, if you can get there it's well worth it. Fantastic food and you don't need a taxi home! The barns are beautifully furnished and have everything you could need. Carl even supplies a breakfast basket so if you arrive late you won't go hungry! We have a two year old golden retriever who has been going since a small puppy. The barns and the whole of Suffolk is very dog friendly. With most pubs giving dogs a warm welcome. Try the Jolly Sailor at Orford after a long walk along the salt marshes. But there are so many others too. All in all the perfect place to stay in the perfect location. Thanks Carl we will be back soon !
On arrival Carl provides a warm greeting. After several visits its like seeing an old friend! He is attentive and available for any needs but leaves you alone to enjoy the break.
The accommodation is as welcoming with a breakfast hamper full of goodies including fresh bread and milk.
Underfloor heating and the general ambience provides a warm atmosphere to the barns, Plus there is a wood burning stove (with logs provided for the first run) which adds a cosy glow to the evening relaxation.
It is dog friendly and the enclosed gardens, although compact provides enough space for my two big dogs. On occasion a doggy bag has been provided for them too.
On our last visit we attended the Pop Up Restaurant and can't recommend that enough. The food was fabulous and a great way to spend an afternoon.
We will be returning.

This is our 9th visit to this lovely place. It's is a piece of heaven in a beautiful county. We never get bored of the area or the barns. Southwold worth a visit as is Dunwich where we sat drinking wine and reading the Sunday papers in front of an open fire. We stayed at gipping barn - a first for us. A lovely barn with a great character and everything you want for a quick weekend away. Thanks to Carl everything is sorted including breakfast.
Stunning location and property. Enclosed garden perfect for the dog to explore without worry of him getting out. Lovely welcome from Carl including a breakfast hamper, milk, bread etc. Already checking dates to book again!! Thanks again, would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxed cozy week/weekend away!
