FREE Holiday Barge or Cottage Break in Suffolk

Free Holiday Barge break

Our Holiday Barge business is newer but we’ve had our Holiday Cottage business for almost a decade as I write this and yet we are still working on new ideas to entice people. We thought giving a FREE BREAK away just for keeping in touch with us was a Win/ Win!

Free Holiday Cottage Break for one winnerWe’ve really made a name for ourselves our the last 9 years with our Holiday Cottage business and since 2017 we’ve had a Holiday Barge business too! We’ve appeared on the BBC and ITV, as well as featuring in The Times and Dog-Friendly Magazine too!

So why are we just giving away a FREE Holiday Barge or Cottage Break for no good reason? Well, one of the ways that we have developed our business is by keeping in touch with our growing VIP Rewards Group, or mailing list as it’s commonly known. We rarely try to ‘sell’ with our newsletters; we use them to let you know about cancellations and exclusive offers, as well as keeping you informed on all things of interest in Suffolk so you can have the very best Holiday Cottage or Holiday Barge break with us.

Free Holiday Cottage or Barge Break for a lucky winnerWe have an incredibly low unsubscribe rate but just to ensure we stay connected with you, we give away a completely FREE BREAK to one lucky Winner every year, just for being part of our ‘gang’. Yes, it really is as simple as that. Just subscribe to our VIP Rewards Group and you’ll be in with a shout.

It’s simply our way of saying ‘Thanks’ for signing up and following us. We have so much repeat business, both on the Holiday Barge and Cottage side, that we are pretty confident that you’ll come back for more. We might make you pay the next time though!

We will pick a winner every year and give them a Four Night midweek break!

Terms & Conditions;
The prize is for a FOUR NIGHT MIDWEEK BREAK either in The Granary Barn, or aboard Twee Gebroeders, between the end of October and the end of March, subject to availability, excluding Christmas, New Year, Valentines, School and Bank Holidays so you have a full five months to take your FREE BREAK!

It’ll be for two adults and up to three dogs.

Please note that we cannot announce the winner first on Social Media, it has to be by email. If we do not hear back from you within 48 hours of notifying you that you have won, we will pick another winner and so on until someone responds. By entering you do consent to us announcing your name (no other details) on Social Media once you have accepted your prize. We’d obviously really appreciate it if you could then shout it from the rooftops!

There is no cash alternative.

If all that doesn’t suit you or you are of the opinion that “no-one ever wins these” then feel free to not enter and gaze at your navel instead. We have given away many breaks over the years to some very happy people, but you’ll never be one of them.

12 days of Christmas offer from Woodfarm

12 days of Christmas

We all know the words to the 12 days of Christmas but we’ve re-written it just to give you a very special Christmas present from us, worth over £60!

We did our own take on the 12 days of Christmas last year for our Barns in Stonham Aspal to bring you a very special offer and it went so well we’re doing it again this year!

You may think that it is a much treasured traditional, seasonal song and shouldn’t be tampered with. However, in true Woodfarm style, we do like to buck the trend so we’ve kinda juggled with it to bring you a new perspective with a Suffolk twist….

We’re using our version to give you a lovely Christmas present from us and although there’s no mention of Barges, it’s only because we didn’t have them then! But it doesn’t stop us rolling out this fab offer to you!

The 12 days of Christmas starts on Christmas day and ends on the 5th January. So, all you need to do is book any 2018 break during the Twelve Days of Christmas and you will receive have all these mouth-watering treats waiting for you when you arrive! You don’t need to actually come before the 5th January, you just need to book your 2018 break by then, and you MUST use the Voucher Code given below.

Please note we cannot apply this offer in conjunction with any other offer or retrospectively to any existing booking, or if you see this offer after booking. It is a new offer just for the 12 days of Christmas to incentivise people to book. That’s why they are called “special offers”. We cannot be clearer on this.

Free Hamper with your 12 days of ChristmasFirstly you’ll have one of our deli-cious deli Hampers from the Deli at the Chilli Farm, just around the corner from Woodfarm.

It’ll contain all sorts of amazing foodie treats such as locally produced tarts, pies, cheeses etc, as well as their life-changing chocolate brownies! There’ll also be some local beer or cyder in there, as well as crisps, crackers, chutney etc too, so plenty to feast on during your Suffolk stay.

Champagne on your 12 days of ChristmasNext, you’ll find a chilled bottle of Champagne in your fridge waiting for you to toast your occasion, whatever that may be.

So you can get the fire going (if it’s that kind of weather), pop the cork and put your feet up with your loved one, relax and unwind.

Now you have everything you need to complete your 12 days of Christmas treat.

Almost….

Handmade chocolates with your 12 days of ChristmasAll you need now is chocolate!

Well, we have that covered too! You’ll also find an amazing box of local, handmade chocolates waiting for you too!

These fabulous honey and sea salt chocolates are handmade in Suffolk, with the help of some very friendly Suffolk bees.

So, we hope you like the sound of our Christmas present to you! All you need to do to scoop all these tasty treats is to book your 2018 break, any time up until the 12th day of Christmas (5th January) and use this Voucher Code; twelve. And you’ll have all this lot waiting for you when you arrive.

If you book Woodfarm House or Onderneming, there will be a much larger hamper!

2018 is booking VERY quickly and we are way ahead of last year again so do book early to avoid disappointment. We all hear that phrase but I am turning a lot of enquiries away simply because we are heavily booked. Just CLICK HERE to go straight to our availability page and get yourselves booked in and grab these goodies!

Please note this cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers including our £25 Discount for first time guests. I’m generous but not daft.

So, to our re-written song;

Our take on the lyrics are below and it was written in 2016 before we had our Barges and we only had three Hot Tubs.

Showing you how it’s done is my lovely friend and bandmate Fern Teather. Whilst I got her to do this daft version of the 12 days of Christmas for me, she is actually a very talented singer/ songwriter so do check out her website here!

Our Holiday Cottage Barge Onderneming

We have purchased two historic Dutch sailing barges, dating back to 1897 and 1899 respectively. They are both moored so you won’t have to learn to sail! Because of their weight though, you’ll hardly know you’re afloat when the tide come in!

Onderneming, or ‘Enterprise’ in English, is a huge 100ft ‘Klipper’ class, lovingly converted into a holiday cottage barge, which has three double bedrooms, three bathrooms and two kitchen/dining/lounge saloons, one in the large former wheelhouse and one in the cargo hold, with so many original features, as well as a kids den!. She is moored at Pin Mill, a tiny hamlet on the River Orwell and offers the perfect peaceful getaway for families or groups of friends. Sleeps 6-8.

Twee Gebroeders, or ‘Two Brothers’ when translated from Dutch is a ‘Skutjse’ class, and no expense has been spared transforming this 64ft vessel into the most romantic holiday cottage barge.

Our Holiday Cottage Barge Twee GebroedersShe has an open kitchen/dining/lounge saloon area, with a cast iron stove, a double cabin and a twin cabin, as well as a luxurious shower room and the most beautiful chrome portholes throughout. She is moored at the quayside in Woodbridge, a quaint maritime town on the River Deben and she is ideal for a romantic escape for two, or for a small family. Sleeps 2-4.

Please do check them both out on our Gallery tab as the interiors are simply stunning!!!
