    Cheesy grin and a thumbs to say thank you.

    We are open again and I don't want to shut any more!

    Thank you so much to everyone for all the support over the last year. Let's face it, it's been rubbish, but we got through. Because we stuck together.

    Massive thanks to the whole of Team Woodfarm, both on dry land and on the water, for being patient and keeping calm and carrying on. I have such an amazing bunch of colleagues.

    And a ginormous thanks to you lot for laughing at my rubbish antics, joining in with the quizzes and hangouts, and for tons of you booking breaks on our Barges & Barns. It's kinda why I get up every day.

    Other thanks go to the NHS and all key workers, but not you if you are the prime minister. I have a lot to say to you but now is not the time.

    Ok, that's all done. Can we please have no more lockdowns people? That ok with you all?

    Good, we've got that established, now let's crack on.

    Oh and don't panic, I will still be talking mostly gibberish.

    Thank you so much x

    I think you should be greeting guests in one of your supermodel outfits....

    I’ve enjoyed all your gibberish - keep it up! Good luck Team Woodfarm & all Woodentops - lets all get back to enjoying coming to Suffolk to see you xx

    No probs Carl. When u have award winning accommodation, an award winning team and your charisma driving it all you can't but not succeed. Can the Suffolk posse wish you extreme success in the coming months/years. Tuscany beckons.

    Fantastic news. So pleased you are back open. Thanks for keeping us all entertained too x

    So pleased for you & the team & for all those businesses that also opened again yesterday. Onwards & upwards! 👏👏 xx

    I am far too old now to visit so don’t know why I have been following this site except that you made me laugh. A happy, successful season.

    So pleased you are able to welcome guests again. Love your antics and gibberish. Thank you so much for making me smile, laugh and get involved in your quuzzes and happy hours. I seriously don't think I would have survived 30 weeks of shielding with out you x

    Loved the gibberish and the modelling was brilliant!

    So pleased for you.... xx

    Previous POTUS, gibberish - Downing Street Doris, gibberish - Carl Barges, common sense. 🙂

    Carl if you didn't talk gibberish we would have to check to see if it was really you, that would mean a full body examination, brain scan, ( hope you have one), did I tell you they couldn't find mine so they just scanned my butt and said I was sane, which kinda accounts for my insanity. Seriously the only good thing about these lockdown thingy's was your ramblings and numerous gibbering's. Stay safe buddy, keep smiling and stay away from skinny binnies 😀😁😂😘

    Enjoy and thank you for all the antics and quizzes during lockdown you made it enjoyable.

    ❤️❤️❤️

    Thank you for keeping me amused through an awful time.

    No monkey business, and no more lockdowns xx

    Thanks for the magazines and the chat.....nice to speak to you

    Aw hope it all goes smoothly and you get fifty billion bookings and become a wealthy man 😍🤣😘

    All chilled here. Nothing much going on today. Nothing to stress about. It's not an important day. Just move along. Nothing to see. I mean, it's not like we've been shut for months and forgotten what to do or anything. And it's not like I've forgotten something crucial like filling up a hot tub, or putting the heating on somewhere, or telling guests where to come, and when 🤞

    All calm, everything is sorted 🙏

    Just sit back and enjoy this selfie of me aboard Onderneming with my feet up taking it easy 🤦

    Hope all goes well. You are fantastic. Like riding a bike, all your skills are still there. Hope to come and stay one day. X

    Ha ha. It won’t matter in the first few months. You’ll be able to get away with all sorts - we’re all too glad to be somewhere that’s not home 🤪

    Keep calm & carry on - or have a chocca-mocha beer 🤪xx

    Good luck to you, your staff and all those lucky people who are booked in. I hope you get lots of sunshine.

    Hopefully your woodentops will ply you with copious amounts of champagne.
