Onderneming Guest Reviews
10th December 2020 – The Gotts
A lovely break here at Snape Maltings, a fantastic location, lively and interesting during the day, and calm and peaceful in the evenings. We used to live on a boat so was the perfect opportunity to experience living on a boat again, and sharing the joys with our three boys. Swimming in the river, fab at high tide. Great walks on the doorstep, a visit to Aldeburgh and a dip in the sea highly recommended. The boat is fantastic, thank you.
20th August 2020 – Jem, Toby plus Franky the Dalmatian
A lovely birthday and ‘non-wedding’ weekend in Suffolk. Lots of memories of the children’s younger days when we lived nearby. A lovely barge which made us feel like we were on our own barge in France. Beautiful sunsets and swim at Sizewell and Aldeburgh. Can recommend the Lighthouse restaurant at Aldeburgh for a very relaxed meal. Very comfortable beds, plenty of space. Good breakfast. Thoroughly enjoyed by all.
17th July 2020 – Daniel, Cheryl, Jerry, Amanda, Sandra and Warren, plus Robbie and Ozzie the dogs
Great fun! All facilities good and working. Great location and good to get away after lockdown. Spacious and comfortable for 6 people, very clean.
7th August 2020 – Lynne, Annie, Lisa, Tim, Fred and Lucy
We have had a wonderful stay onboard; the weather has been fantastic. We have enjoyed the peace and quiet of the early mornings and evenings, watching the sun rise and set. The live music at Snape was an added bonus-but get there early for pizza! Loved beach days at Aldeburgh and Southwold. It has been a great experience and we will certainly recommend it to others.
13th July 2020 – Mick and Lynn
Lovely four-night stay, we came up from south west Essex with our 14 year old Jack Russell Terrier; she did find climbing on board challenging! So glad that the shops are now open, and the Plough and Sail – normality beginning to return. Had a couple of lovely meals in the Plough and Sail. Great exploring the area and just watching the comings and goings. So many lovely places to visit close by. We found everything we needed on board, and more. Many thanks to Woodfarm Barges for making our stay so enjoyable.

Thursday 25th April 2019 – Marianne & family;
We’ve had a really good stay with the most fantastic weather. There’s everything you could need here and the breakfast stuff was really useful. The Plough & Sail does lovely food. Good coffee to be had from the cafe next door. Orford is well worth a visit with a Post Office where you can get cash and also sells excellent vegetables. Loads of walks from here with the dogs. Sutton Hoo not far away, which also allows dogs in!
Friday 12th April 2019 – Dave and Lili;
We enjoyed exploring Woodbridge, Orford, Thorpeness and Aldeburgh. The Ramsholt Arms is well worth the trek to get there and The Plough & Sail is great to have on the doorstep. The boat is quirky and fun – had a great time and would recommend it to our more mobile friends!
Monday 11th March 2019 – The Hendrys and Belle the dog;

Typical ‘weekend away’ weather following a fortnight of fake summer. That didn’t matter as life on Onderneming is blissfully tranquil and peaceful. Can’t think of a better way to lose a couple of days in gloomy February. ‘Congratulations’ to Carl and the team for creating such a lovely and restful environment. ‘There is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats’ – Kenneth Grahame, writer, The Wind in the Willows.

Sunday 20th January 2019 – David and families;
Lovely 70th birthday surprise for ‘Captain Hook’. Excellent accommodation standard for all of us – even for the ‘cabin boy’! And cosy too with the wood burner roaring. Breakfast package much appreciated – cooked breakfast a real treat these days!

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We’ve had such a lovely time. How cosy and snug; we’ve got the ‘barge bug’. After tea and scones, the jam’s nearly gone, the eggs were exquisite, the bread sublime. Farewell for now, we’ll be back another time!!

20th August 2020 – Jenny, James, Ally (6 years old), and Dex the dog
Wonderful, amazing, every detail so well thought of. Couldn’t ask for a better weekend break, so much needed especially in the current times. Can’t wait to try the other barge and all the cottages. Thank you so much!
25th July 2020
Just wow! Fabulous weekend retreat. Many thanks
6th July 2020 – Emily & Howard

29th November 2019 – Vikki and Ron
Like your previous guests, this was a last-minute escape for us. A lovely surprise from my partner Ron, as an early birthday present. I dream of living aboard – he knows me well!! This little break aboard Twee Gebroeders has made me want to fulfil my dream even more. A fabulous weekend.
25th November 2019 – Angela and Paul Wheeler
A last-minute getaway, booked two days before, my husband surprised me. I knew we were going to Woodbridge, but didn’t know where. So, as he dropped his bag at the gang plank, I was speechless! When Nicky met us to let us onboard, I was still taking it in. The stay on the boat has been wonderful, warm and cosy, lovely walks into town and either direction along the footpaths. Even the rain and really high tides have not dampened our spirits. Actually sad to go home, it’s been a lovely late November adventure! Great homely touches and the welcome basket was perfect! Thanks for a wonderful stay.
25th October 2019 – Val and Brian
Lovely couple of days, thank you. The barge is a gem, cosy and comfortable, and Woodbridge has everything, and is very welcoming. The Coach & Horses on the Melton road serves good food and has a gluten free menu recommended by Coeliac UK.
6th October 2019 – Jen and Joe, Merlin and Ripley the dogs
A very nice way to spend a week. Some wet days but that didn’t stop the comfort. Lovely way to spend the mornings – going over to get a coffee and black forest hot chocolate from the Coffee Link and bring it back to drink on the deck in the sun. The dogs have loved being here. Can’t wait for next time.
27th September 2019 – Ruth & Stephen
Thank you for a lovely stay. Very comfortable cosy bed. We have really enjoyed watching the tides come. Especially high tides curtailed some of our walking plans but hey!! We would recommend The Galley for superb food, and also next door the Wild Strawberry Café.
20th September 2019 – Emily, Katie and Huxley the dog
I was brought to this beautiful barge as a surprise trip for my birthday! All I can say is, WOW! The welcoming touches (breakfast basket, milk etc) just added to this already incredible barge. The views were stunning and the deck a perfect place to share a bottle of bubbles and watch the world go by. Our 10-month-old pup couldn’t have been happier with plenty of walks and dog friendly pubs nearby. We will most definitely be back! Thank you!
18th August 2019 – Kruse-Mackie family
Wonderfully relaxing and inspiring stay. Beautiful region with so much to explore – thank you for all the tips! We just can’t believe how amazingly dog friendly it is everywhere. Our darling border collie, Fraya, clearly felt welcome from the moment she stepped onto this lovely barge.
9th August 2019 – Sid
Fab three-night stay on your great barge. Superb location for good relaxation. We enjoyed the strong winds which brought lovely waves, slight sway of barge and some interesting creaks! Loved every minute. Thanks for hamper too!
