    following an 8th visit to Old Buffs Barn we are happy to recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable and superbly equipped base for exploring this great part of the country. Excellent facilities with separate en-suites for each bedroom - ideal for groups and families. Comfortable furnishings and nice garden with beautiful outlook across Suffolk farmland. Good walks around the quiet location in Friston (one pub, village green but not much else - which is great) with Snape and Aldeburgh on your doorstep and Southwold, Framlingham and Mimsmere not too far. Wonderful, hospitable welcome from owners including cake and fizz on arrival - thoroughly recommended (although reluctantly as we might not get booked in for a future visits!)

    We had a warm welcome and Woodside Barn was well equipped and very comfortable. We had a fabulous week and the location was perfect for exploring nearby towns and villages.

    A lovely barn, everything you need is there. Great dog friendly garden and some lovely walks and places to go, owners are very nice but do not bother you, one of the best places we have stayed in.

    This was our second holiday at Woodside Barn Cottages this year. Again we had a very relaxing week.It was lovely to see the owners again. A very clean, cozy and well equipped barn. The garden is very well kept and totally secure for taking our dog. Plenty of places to visit and good dog walking routes from the barn.

    We all really enjoyed our stay at Woodside Barn. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the cottage was lovely. Lots of great walks for our dog and the local pub became a firm favourite. We would recommend!

    A very beautiful, clean and cosy converted barn with nice walks on your doorstep. The owners are very welcoming. A personal touch from the owners was a bottle of Fizz, milk and a delicious home made Victoria sponge. The garden was safe and enclosed,excellent for taking a dog. A very pretty part of Suffolk to enjoy a quiet and relaxing holiday. We will be returning in September.
