We are so fortunate to have great feedback from our ‘Holiday Cottage Barges’ guests. We have guest recommendations books aboard both Onderneming and Twee Gebroeders and this is a small selection for you to browse through.
If you’d like to check us out on Tripadvisor, then please have a look at the Woodfarm Barns pages, where we have hundreds of Five Star reviews! The Barges are a more recent purchase and we haven’t built up the reviews up on there yet, but you can see how we run a holiday cottage business! We have exactly the same approach with our Barges.
Many thanks for all the well selected 'welcome' treats.
Thank you for all the breakfast, fruit and extras - a very nice touch. Lots of things to do and see and thankfully the weather was good. Thanks again.
The barge is so cosy and comfortable! The breakfast basket was a lovely touch - thank you. Enjoyed exploring Woodbridge - everything on our doorstep - shops, pubs and good restaurants.
Couldn't have spent a better weekend celebrating a 60th birthday. Barge is absolutely stunning. Have had a wonderfully relaxing time watching the tide and the birds
Boris our dog had a wonderful time and catered for extremely well, especially the treats! Breakfast supplies were very much appreciated too. This is our second break with Carl's fab accommodation - only Tuscany is in our sights now. Quirky little barge with everything you could possibly need. Thank you so much for a well needed break away.
A fabulous weekend at last! What a gorgeous setting and so peaceful sat amongst the reeds to eat our breakfast! The barge is fabulous, spacious and very well equipped. Fantastic walks/shopping and a great meal at the Plough and Sail. Thank you.
A great weekend celebration for a 60th birthday. Boat was fantastic! So big! Did some great walks and a few pub visits! Great venue and hope to be back some day!
Our third attempt to stay on the barge (our first and second attempts cancelled by Boris!) We’ve had a great few days on board, visiting old family haunts of Aldeburgh and Orford. Thanks Carl and your team John and Claire, Howard and Tessie and Marmalade the dog.
We were not sure if 6 adults and 2 children would all fit comfortably but this boat goes on forever! We all had a lovely time celebrating the grandparents belated 70th! Thank you for the yummy breakfast box and all your considerate hospitality.
Onderneming what can we say but wow what a fantastic boat. We loved ‘twee’ last year but there is so much room here. We were here for a relaxing break and that’s what we had. Fab location with loads of walks for the dogs straight off the boat. We did get to a couple of new places this year including Walberswick beach well worth a visit and a great early morning swim had by all. Highly recommend Onderneming and we hope to be back next year to see more wildlife including otters and a barn owl in what is a very magical place. Thank you Carl for allowing us to share your wonderful boat.
Tales from the riverbank – hearty meals with lashings of red wine, jigsaw around the table in front of the glow from the wood burner. A family memory never to be forgotten. Needless to say a good time was had by all. Many thanks.
Our visit was great, we had lots of fun.
Our visit was postponed from 2020 and so we celebrated a 50th birthday a year late! We all loved the barge and agreed we would have loved to stay longer. We took the sailors path to Aldeburgh and doged the worst of the rain! Many thanks Carl and team.
Couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than on this magnificent barge! We loved it. The morning and the evening times were especially peaceful and enchanting out on deck. Exploring the surrounding and immediate area was revealing as never been this far East before! Walberswick, Southwold, Aldeburgh and Snape were all brilliant.
What a marvellous unique place. It felt magical and special from the moment we all arrived. Loved all the attention to detail to make people’s stays as perfect as possible (fans, candles etc) we have been very blessed with the best of British weather for our stay. Loved Aldeburgh, Lowestoft, Southwold and all the lovely pubs and shops around Onderneming. Thank you.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Onderneming over the past 5 days. Weather has been mixed but warm and not stopped us from walking locally. The Iken/Tunstall forest walk is very nice with rivers and country views. Great food at local pubs. Our best rating would be The Greyhound Inn at Pettistree about 15 mins drive.
Had the best stay on the barge. Got really lucky with the weather it was beautiful. Really enjoyed and will definitely be coming back.
Carl and Team, thanks so much for another brilliant stay. One day there will be another festival to come to but we’ve really enjoyed just chilling this time.
Amazing weekend with the farmers market and vintage fair all happening during our stay. It’s felt like a long time coming as we booked originally for last June so it’s lovely to all be together again. We struck lucky with the weather and loved enjoying a cup of tea on the front deck during sunset. Beautiful part of the country.
We consider ourselves truly blessed to have snapped up a last minute cancellation, and had a wonderful short break on the river in this beautiful part of the world. It has been a real tonic in this most unusual of years! The barge has proved warm and comfortable, and the breakfast basket was much appreciated. We lived near Woodbridge for a short time many years ago, so it has been a joy to rediscover old haunts – a real wander down memory lane! I have enjoyed the Facebook posts over the summer and been eyeing up the barge for a long time. Only deterred by the journey from West Wales, but am so glad we came – wish we could have stayed longer! P.s. we love the puzzle – hope we can finish it!
Had a lovely short stay here – grandchildren visited us here and are begging us to book again so that they can stay too. Drove out to the Fox’s Inn at Newbourne, great for dogs and humans, and good service. Walks along the river (both ways) are beautiful. Really don’t want to face the reality of the outside world again – this has truly been an escape for the weekend.
We’ve had a very relaxing few days, much needed after lockdown for all those months. Sutton Hoo was the highlight for us, should not be missed. We re-visited Southwold and Walberswick, and super fish and chips at Aldeburgh! Off now to collect plants from Suffolk Plant Centre. Thanks for everything.
This trip was a great surprise for my wife’s birthday. She has always wanted to stay on a barge. We both love coming to Woodbridge so staying here was a bonus. The weather was very rainy, but it didn’t stop us from our walks. The barge was beyond our expectation, very comfortable, clean etc. The breakfast hamper was great – thank you. It was great looking through your album on the restoration of the barge, fantastic achievement by all.
Unique accommodation, really great fun, lovely location and so much space for 4 of us, plus a dog. Loved it for a birthday treat, would come back.
We had a lovely weekend on this lovely barge. Great facilities on board and the breakfast hamper was lovely, thank you! The weather was not the best but it didn’t stop us enjoying this lovely area. There are some great walks which we enjoyed and our two dogs really enjoyed themselves. We will definitely be back. Thank you Carl and the team.
Fabulous five days spent relaxing, eating, and drinking in this great barge. Took long walks with our two dogs. A visit to nearby Walberswick is a must, great beach to walk the dogs on. The weather has been extremely kind this week, so it was lovely to sit on the deck – reading a book and watching the world go by! Carl has thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. Was really looking forward to our stay and it didn’t disappoint.
Lovely couple of days made even better by fabulous late September sunshine. Good facilities on board and generous breakfast hamper. Particularly enjoyed looking through the photobook of the restoration of the barge.
Originally due to come in May but due to the 'unprecedented times', we had to re-schedule. Circumstances meant we hoped for, but didn't anticipate, favourable weather. However we were not disappointed and the sun shone all weekend. A glorious time was had by all.
Suffolk is so calm and peaceful compared to home, and it was lovely to get away for a few days after lockdown, lasting for us since March 18th. We had fabulous weather throughout and enjoyed some gentle walks and pleasant drives. My Top Tip: mind the broken kerb outside the ice cream stall at the Railway station! Loved the breakfast hamper and the views from the barge. Very comfy beds, and The Growler kept us on our toes! Thanks Carl.
A unique stay for a unique year!! Fabulous 5 nights afloat on Onderneming. Breakfast views down the river, sunrises, sunsets - pure beauty. Wildlife aplenty - Egret a daily visitor along with the ducks who tormented the dogs!! Thank you.
Awesome stay aboard, once our three rescue Rotties mastered getting on and off. Everything you could possibly need on board. Fabulous beaches and river walks for our Motley Crew. I think we may go and look to see where Onderneming is moored. Still a couple of days to go but will definitely be back.
Loved it! What a beaut this barge is. Enjoyed sitting upon the deck with a glass of Prosecco, watching the beautiful sunsets. So peaceful and so relaxing. We'll be sure to return!
A wonderful eight night stay. So calm and peaceful. Mixed weather - thunder and lightening, monsoon rain and sunshine. Highly recommend Iken Canoes for a day sail. We loved it! Thank you Nicki, Carl, and Onderneming - a beautiful barge - I wish you could tell us about your adventures of old! Till next time!
Great fun had by all. Sea dogs and water hogs. Woodbridge is a lovely town. Very much recommend a pizza at the diner in town!
It was brilliant and we had the best time, lots of fun being together. Kids enjoyed the den, their secret hideout. So different to stay on this lovely boat in Suffolk, surrounded by so much beautiful countryside. Children loved the walks and the swimming in the river and the sea, so did Jet.
Fab stay on board a cosy, well located barge. Woodbridge is a lovely place to stay with lots to offer. We enjoyed trips to Sutton Hoo, Aldeburgh, Southwold, and Walberswick (great for crabbing, as was the barge at high tide). We also enjoyed a guided tour of the tide mill. Love the boat, love the barge, love Suffolk.
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.
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.
What an amazing staycation – we couldn’t have asked for more. Fabulous breakfast basket. Beautiful well-equipped barge. Amazing location and weather. We love Suffolk and will definitely return.
Wonderful weather, wonderful location, wonderful time. Cheers.
Had a lovely time here with my Auntie and Uncle. Lots of nice views and I definitely recommend 10 out of 10. Nice and quiet, perfect place to get away for 2 nights. Lovely atmosphere, amazing experience. Thank you!
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.
Great fun! All facilities good and working. Great location and good to get away after lockdown. Spacious and comfortable for 6 people, very clean.
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 Barns for making our stay so enjoyable.
Great stay – especially with the dog! Beautiful scenery and nice walks!
Fantastic way to celebrate the easing of lockdown and Gilligan’s 7-month birthday! Lovely weather for swimming and amateur bird watching on deck.
Fantastic way to celebrate the easing of lockdown and Gilligan’s 7 month birthday!
Lovely stay on board the barge. Very relaxing. Rocky enjoyed the walks. Thank you for the breakfast basket.
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!
Just wow! Fabulous weekend retreat. Many thanks
Had a great time with the dog and the kids! Lovely walks. Enjoyed sitting by the window watching the birds.
Such a lovely time. Anchor pub was so good we went twice. Shingle road beach was stunning.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. We had a really great weekend, a lovely day yesterday. Again…wait for it…thank you.
We have had a fantastic stay in your beautiful Dutch barge. It has been very peaceful and relaxing. You have thought of everything. Many thanks.
Exceeded all expectations, a wonderful place to celebrate New Year with friends. Loving the whole dog friendly vibe. Thank you.
Had a lovely stay here for new year, cosy and comfortable stay with all the home comforts. Lovely long walk to Melton, day in Aldeburgh. Perfect! Look forward to seeing you again.
The barge is comfortable and quirky and a great place to celebrate my husband’s 70th birthday. Thank you for being accommodating.
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.
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.
We have had a great time here! Lovely clean and warm place to stay!
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.
Thank you for a lovely stay which is our first time on a Barge. We had a fantastic weekend. Thanks a million!
Thank you for a lovely stay and for preparing the Barge so very well.
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.
Fabulous two night break spent with friends. Long walk to Aldeburgh, fantastic location and breakfast items a lovely extra. Recommend the Plough and Sail and Golden Key for fantastic food.
We enjoyed a wonderful stay in this beautiful setting. The walks around were great and the highlight of our stay was a visit to Aldeburgh.
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.
What a superb week in this quirky Barge. Great walks, bike rides and canoeing where we were joined by a friendly Seal.
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!
Wonderful week on this stunning Barge. Fantastic walks and welcoming pubs, with a great coastline – we would recommend this holiday to anyone!
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.
We had a wonderful stay on the Barge and to wake up to such quiet and open skies! The Pump Bakery is great for breakfast pastries and other delights!
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!
Love this Barge! Three amazing days on the Barge with friends, family and dogs! We hired canoe’s – it was great fun!
The hottest week of the year!! We have been in the best place to enjoy it…Suffolk is the ‘new Dorset’, we will be back to discover more areas. A fabulous stay.
Thank you for fitting us in for a last-minute break. Love the barge and town of Woodbridge. Thanks for the breakfast hamper. Everything was up to your usual high standards Carl. Thanks to Nick also.
Had a lovely few days. The weather has been amazing. The dogs have had a great time too! All the little extras much appreciated – thank you!
On a “Cruise to nowhere” but we loved it, a thoroughly enjoyable week.
Very unique place to get away with the family. We all really enjoyed our stay, with the original features it gave this adventure an authentic feel. Visited Southwold Pier, Walberswick crabbing and stunning beach. Thank you.
Enjoyed a lovely few days away. All local pubs are dog friendly.
Had a relaxing few days away. Lots of nice walks at Dunwich, Southwold, Framlingham and Aldeburgh. Pubs lovely and dog friendly.
Lovely boat, loads of room for everyone and the dog! Perfect place for a surprise 65th birthday weekend.
What a lovely barge, surprisingly spacious - full of character. We wanted somewhere 'quirky' for our break and this fitted the bill perfectly. The extras (chocolates and Champagne) were a lovely touch.
We wanted somewhere quirky for a break and this Barge fitted the bill perfectly with spacious accommodation and full of character. We loved exploring the local area.
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!
A really good stay with fantastic weather. The Plough & Sail serves lovely food and there are loads of walks from the Barge. Orford is well worth a visit and Sutton Hoo too!
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!
The boat is quirky and fun. We enjoyed exploring Woodbridge, Orford, Thorpeness and Aldeburgh. Had a great time and would recommend to our friends.
This was a surprise weekend for me on my 80th birthday. Enjoyed the cosy Barge and my seat by the log burner!
Fantastic location, despite strong winds and some heavy rain we made the most of the local walks and The Plough and Sail. Cosy and comfortable on board. We had a very relaxing time.
Cosy and comfortable on board, we had a relaxing time. Fantastic location making the most of the local walks and the Plough & Sail Pub nearby.
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.
Thank you for our latest #LIMDODWEN adventure! (7 adults, 1 toddler and 1 baby). We had a fabulous time in this amazing barge. Great space, beautiful conversion, very thoughtful touches. Given us a taste for sea-life! We have loved it, thank you.
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!
What an amazing place to stay. We have had a wonderful post-Xmas and New Year and delighted in the ever changing light and landscapes. Loved exploring the Suffolk coast and the wonderful walks. Fab pubs on doorstep and we enjoyed many pints of Adnams. Even the dogs got their river legs. We'll definitely be back!
Thank you very much for a wonderful stay aboard Onderneming. We celebrated with friends here for two nights with a 'child free' early Christmas. Such a fabulous boat in such a wonderful location by the Suffolk coast. Thank you for a faultless stay!
Thanks for letting us stay in such a cosy billet! It was great to meet and greet our family in such an idyllic location. We will recommend it to all our friends. Facilities and choice of toiletries made it a very memorable break away.
We've had a lovely family time on board Onderneming. The views from the barge change every time you look out of the window which is fascinating. Spent a brilliant day in Orford and going out to the Ness lighthouse and AWRE site. Just wish we were staying longer.
Wonderful weekend on board Onderneming. Very comfortable, enjoyed the log burner, lovely cosy evenings. Great meals at The Golden Key and The Plough and Sail. We will be back for more. Thank you!
A lovely stay on the barge. The sunrise was spectacular. Thanks for a memorable birthday break.
A wonderful weekend on this lovely characterful barge. Sitting on the deck watching the ever changing river was a delight.
Had the best time, great memories. We love this place. Both the barge and the setting are delightful.
A fantastic holiday on this comfortable, and unique barge. The area is full of interesting locations to visit. Thank you for all the extra touches making our stay so memorable.
A lovely time, with the delicious breakfast basket. Woodbridge has so many things to see and do.
Thanks to the team for making this a memorable short break. Great to watch everything on the water and have a relaxing break.
It was a treat to be back on the water (and mud!) having sold our canal boat! Had a truly relaxing time, wonderful weather and not used the car during our break due to excellent location.
Loved this barge. Everything we need for a weekend away. Great food from the Woodbridge Deli to make up a picnic. Lots of choices in town to eat and drink.
The views amazing and the breakfast basket fantastic. Recommend the Crown and Bengal to eat.
The barge is a delight. Great breakfast hamper. It was great to park the car up and not have to drive. The Angel have a good selection of Gin – around 200 in total! The Anchor is great for food.
Enjoyed spending time in this beautiful boat. We ate at the Table, the Galley and Bengal – all great places.
Celebrating our anniversary on board, how beautiful, romantic and cosy!
We have enjoyed people and bird watching, and shopping for beautiful bread and cakes!
We had a truly relaxing couple of days. Most spacious and comfortable boat. What a gorgeous spot with the changing tide.
Never a dull moment here, with the tide moving, birds flying and feeding in the mud, canoes, kayaks and boats putter past. Walking, exploring, jogging and watching the birds, whilst my husband painted the scene.
Lovely to be central in Woodbridge with so many good dog walks. Highly recommend The Anchor pub for Sunday lunch.
What a mooring. Nightingales in Sutton Hoo wood and swallows in the marina!
What an adventure we’ve had. Magical memories to take away with us. Thank you.
So peaceful, slept well and enjoyed this beautiful location. We visited Butley Oystery, Shingle Street and Sutton Hoo and a lovely long walk along the Deben to work up an appetite for fish and chips!
We celebrated x2 70th birthdays doing something different. We walked, we talked we ate and played cards, did the “pub” and enjoyed the boat with it’s history.
Lovely stay in this well equipped Barge. Thank you.
Lovely weekend in a lovely part of the world! The barge is well thought out and very comfortable.
Wonderful place, so quiet, tranquil and private. Cooking on an aga-style oven was amazing! Wonderful memories to take home. Thank you.
A fantastic and original place to stay, which is so peaceful. Enjoyed walks down the Deben. Recommend The Galley Restaurant in Woodbridge, excellent service. Woodbridge is a lovely place and we are sorry to have to leave!
Arrived in time for a snowy weekend! Exceptional service from Carl. Cooking a meal on the Aga was fun and romantic. Lots of walking in Woodbridge, together with lots of lovely places to eat and drink.
A lovely stay for a very cold week. The Barge was so cosy and warm. We enjoyed a trip to Aldeburgh which is beautiful.
A lovely dutch barge which was beautifully presented, warm and cosy which was very welcome as the weather was bitterly cold with ice on the river! The bars and restaurants in Woodbridge are well worth the visit.
Lovely cosy barge, so well equipped. We enjoyed the scenery and wildlife with good walks.
Lovely peaceful break in this warm and cosy barge.
We have had an absolutely lovely time here, having won our stay from one of Carl’s competitions. The barge is beautiful, cosy and everything is so cleverly thought out.
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!!
Thank you for a relaxing weekend on this fantastic barge, with it’s sumptuous breakfast basket and the little things like shower gel in the bathroom!
Fantastic peaceful break with nice walks, log fires. It was lovely and warm and we were grateful for the breakfast basket.
What a wonderful experience. Thank you for looking after our every need.
An excellent long weekend and a super experience on the boat. All thoroughly enjoyable.
A fabulous stay on this unique barge. Loved watching the birds and nature with excellent walks in both directions.
Great break to celebrate a birthday, the barge is comfy.

We have enjoyed staying on the barge with all it’s home comforts.
We enjoyed out stay and enjoyed the lovely country walks. Enjoyed the views from the barge.
Our grandchildren had an amazing time pretending to be “Captain of the ship” and playing in the den. Enjoyed watching the sunsets and sunrises. Highly recommend Jimmy’s Farm for a day out.
What a brilliant adventure for our kids half term. Enjoyed Aldeburgh and rowing on Thorpeness Mere. We’ve stayed at the Barns numerous times so we were not disappointed by the Barge at all!
A lovely stay, so comfy and welcoming.
We’ve had a wonderful few days. Some super walks and really enjoyed sitting watching the tide coming in and going out.
We love Woodbridge – this was such a brilliant choice to stay here. We can’t wait to
Wow – exceeded expectations. A fab place (Woodbridge) and fab barge in great setting.
So glad I discovered Onderneming. Our visit has been very enjoyable, as “messing about in boats” has always be an important part of our lives. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to stay on board and enjoy life afloat once more.
What an idyllic setting for a peaceful break. Loved sitting on deck and looking out over the estuary. Dog walking and pubs/restaurant’s all excellent!
Thanks for a great stay. We used this as a base to visit Sutton Hoo, Tide Mill at Woodbridge and Flatford Mill. We also walked the Arthur Ransome Walking Trail. A quirky atmosphere on the barge with the peace and quiet as well as we watched the tide ebb and flow.
Have loved the experience of staying on a barge, and sitting on deck.
A lovely week, cosy and comfortable, with the fresh air making us hungry! We enjoyed the Suffolk breakfast basket and enjoyed shopping for provisions at Suffolk Food Hall.
Wonderful boat in a wonder setting. Very peaceful just sitting in the sun, watching the tide!
Delightful few days. Tranquility set in a delightful town. We could happily stay here forever!
Enjoyed the views, great location and fantastic views.
The boat was magical especially with the tide moving in and out – a real adventure!
Lovely trip on this beautiful boat, everything has been thought of to give the guests a perfect break. Thank you.
Such a peaceful stay in a beautiful location. Enjoyed watching the birds as the water rolled in and out, and even spotted a seal! Woodbridge is gorgeous with some lovely walks and welcoming people.
A wonderful couple of days – just perfect sitting on deck. Only problem – it wasn’t long enough!
Fantastic time in a wonderful boat.
Fantastic time in a wonderful boat – we will be back!

What a fabulous way to spend my 60th birthday. Beautiful boat – loved the experience of watching the tide go in and out, sitting on deck with a glass of champagne…..what more could you ask for. Had a fab meal at the Unruly Pig.

So peaceful – we could spend hours watching the boats and birds. Our dog was in total “dog heaven” with wonderful walks.
Splendid. What a fantastic boat, everything so comfy and accommodating. Woobridge is fab, everything you need including cheeky shopping! We wish time would slow down…we will be back for more!
Thank you so much for a wonderful week on the beautiful TG. Clean and comfortable, enjoyed relaxing on the deck with a glass of wine. Loved all the cafes, pubs etc especially the Hut and lovely cakes from the bread shop. Overall, fantastic stay in sunny Suffolk in the most unique accommodation. Thank you very much.
Glorious sunset on the deck of the Endeavour, after a delicious meal at the Butt and Oyster with our dog. Life doesn’t get much better!
The perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of London life. A very special place to visit . Wish we could stay much longer.
Lovely comfortable boat and so peaceful. Sorry we couldn’t stay longer.
Very enjoyable stay with mooring opposite Tide Mill – perfect. We enjoyed exploring the Deben both ways. We didn’t mean to go to sea and didn’t – but there were constant echoes of secret water. Thank you.
A lovely restful holiday on a beautiful boat. Incredible weather and a lovely welcome pack.
Lovely stay, four grandchildren loved it, the wildlife, the water and amazing weather. Great barge, ideal for a family stay.
Wonderful to be back in a boat again. Weather fantastic – visited Sutton Hoo, Orford Battery, Pin Mill and Snape Maltings. Great walks for the dogs everywhere including Rendlesham Forest. Thank you so much.
What an amazing place. The barge is most beautiful and so romantic. Loved Woodbridge. Also visited Southwold, Aldeburgh and Pin Mill to have a look at ”Onderneming”, the other WFBarge. Thank you.
A wonderful stay – thank you so much. The sunsets were amazing and the tranquillity ideal. We enjoyed a fabulous meal with our unruly kids at the Unruly Pig – well worth a try. Thanks for your hospitality!
Lovely sunny weather – Barge quite unique. Saw lots of birds.
Enjoyable night on T.G. with comfy beds and plenty of kitchen equipment. A unique experience and enjoyed a lovely meal in the Riverside Restaurant.
Beautiful barge in a stunning location, we couldn’t have asked for more!
Lovely time onboard. The cabins are very cute and cosy. Good place for bird spotting in a picturesque landscape. We loved the Arthur Ransome books. Hope to come again.
Had a relaxing and enjoyable weekend aboard Endeavour, watching the tide roll in. The barge is so cosy and comfortable. Taking away lots of lovely memories.
Had a fabulous stay on board Endeavour. We can’t imagine anywhere else better to celebrate a very special birthday. The Butt and Oyster pub has played a wonderful part of our stay here too. We will “endeavour” to come back! Thank you so much.
A fabulous long weekend with great friends on a fabulous cosy boat. Pin Mill is absolute magic – so peaceful and quiet. We enjoyed the local area – ate at the Butt and Oyster and Red Lion. Visited Aldeburgh and Thorpeness – enjoyed the Mere! Southwold, Flatford, Kersey and Lavenham.
We found a special and beautiful place to send off our sister before her wedding. Thank you for a warm and perfect weekend. Life is about special moments such as these.
A wonderful few days celebrating my 60th birthday with family and friends. So many lovely places to visit locally and dog walks right from the door. We’ve had a wonderful time – very comfortable and well equipped boat…….we will return!
Great way to celebrate a “biggie” birthday. Weather beautiful – even the early morning mist! Beautiful, peaceful area.
Brilliant location for a relaxing few days. Sitting by the table looking up the river is a treat. Funky spot – beautiful area.
The most idyllic two nights spent on this fabulous boat. Thanks so much.
What a fabulous boat. Clean and tidy and very warm. The local pub is great and the local people have some great stories to tell!
Very relaxing and quirky. Great place to celebrate my birthday with family. Hope to come back.
Very cosy place to stay and lucky with crisp frosty mornings and days of bright sunshine. Many thanks.
Wonderful weekend away. Quirky and full of character. Lots of places to visit and plenty of walking. Visit Suffolk Food Hall for great fresh food and vegetables. Thank you so much for a fantastic welcome.
Lovely walks in all direction and always good to have a pub at the bottom of the steps. Recommend the walk to Shotley Gate.
A lovely hideaway to see in the New Year. Cosy, comfortable and warm.
Had a fantastic stay – the boat is warm and beautiful. Well kept with lots of space. Thank you for welcoming us Denise. The fire keeps things warm and cosy – we really enjoyed our stay.
Loved the beautiful sunsets. Thank you for a lovely and relaxing place to stay
We had a cosy stay – enjoyed sitting by the stove after a long walk. Bury St Edmunds Christmas Market was very festive and busy. Lovely farmers market at Wyken Vineyard.
Such fun time here in sunshine and storm! A really unusual place – no need to venture far from the call of the curlew! Thank you.
Thank you for the warm welcome upon arrival at a most inviting and cosy klipper. A beautiful peaceful and serene location. Walk to Woolveston Marina and back via St Michael’s Church recommended. Butt and Oyster definitely worth a visit.
Many thanks for a wonderful stay in unique surroundings. What a privilege to experience, even only for a few days, life on a Klipper.
Thank you for sharing The Endeavour. We didn’t venture too far, but did take a trip to Shingle Street. Thank you for allowing us to bring dogs – a UK break is not the same without them.
Wow! We loved our stay at your beautiful boat. Everything has been thought of. Blessed with beautiful weather, a lovely way to spend a weekend with lots of lovely walks and great pints at the pub.
We’ve enjoyed a unique non sailing boat experience. Quite idyllic setting. We recommend cycling to Shotley Marina, walking to Woolverstone Marina and visiting Landguard Fort – fascinating for history of the estuary area.
Beautiful, tranquil surroundings. Lovely to watch the world go by. Unusual accommodation that gets the imagination going.

Thank you for a great welcome. Very cosy and relaxing. Great walks, scenery and pub food…….and fun dodging the rising tide! Will be back again!
A thoroughly enjoyable time beginning with the very warm welcome from Denise. We loved the quirky atmosphere of the boat and its location to the pub. Completely relaxing, peaceful with no passing traffic noise. Good local walks but enjoyed watching the birds and changing scenery as tide ebbed and flowed. Loved it! Will definitely return.
The perfect way to celebrate our 30th anniversary, with a very welcoming tour by Denise. Wonderful walks from all directions, wonderful food and beer at the Butt and Oyster, topped off with cosy nights on the Onderneming. A perfect “get away from it all” weekend and less than an hour from home. Thank you!
What a lovely few days and great weather! Denise gave us a lovely welcome. Lots of great walks from the boat with the added bonus of refreshments at the Butt and Oyster. Southwold has lovely sandy beaches and some great local artist shops. We have had such a lovely time and look forward to coming back.
A really lovely few days. Great walks, terrific views and the best bit of all – a short walk to a fab pub with good food. Comfortable and warm, outside seating would top the rating.
Wow! What can I say. We have had a fantastic time here at the Onderneming in this blissful location. The boat is beautiful. Pin Mill is a great base with dog walks in all directions. We recommend the walk down to Shotley point with some amazing views and a great pub the Shipwreck at the end! The Butt and Oyster is a great put with great food. A lovely place to sit and watch the boats and tide come in. We don’t want to leave.
