    A warm welcome form the owner and the bottle of fizz was a nice touch. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this comfortable and well equipped cottage. Situated in a very quiet location and has the added bonus of nice country walks from the cottage. Would highly recommend for those who want a nice relaxing and peaceful break.

    always a warm welcome at woodside barn by the lovely owners jeannie and ann. the barn is beautifully kept - it is warm, cosy, clean and comfortable. the showers run hot, the beds are clean and comfortable, the sitting room is cosy and comfy. the location is ideal for some peace and quiet but is easily accessible to aldburgh, thorpeness, southwold, etc. garden is secure for pets but has beautiful views to the surrounding countryside. i suppose this is the reason we visit so often.

    The barn conversion was immaculate .The owner welcomed us with a beautiful home baked cake and suggested outings for us when asked. She re-arranged the bedroom furniture for my disabled daughter and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation had everything you could possibly need, including, joy of joys, a tea cosy! Lots of space inside and out, rabbits and birds and some lovely places to explore within a very short distance of the house.

    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.
