Reviews

Vale Farm Barns is situated in beautiful Suffolk countryside which is made even more special as the owner is a conservationist and has influenced other farmers to join him. The barns are cleverly converted to supply luxury and an ideal venue for a family party. We were a family party of 15 very keen on sport. A table tennis table was available as well as barbecues. The provision of darts and croquet in the excellent amount of ground surrounding the barns was perfect for keeping us entertained. There was lots to see in the area, Sutton Hoo was very close as was Suffolk Punch Horse Trust. Woodbridge itself is delightful.A previous customer - 8th August 2016
Everyone loved the buildings and had a brilliant weekend.Camilla E, Essex - 22nd May 2016
We just wanted to thank Suffolk Cottage Holidays for our fantastic weekend! Vale Farm Barns were fabulous. We'd be extremely grateful if you would pass on our sincere thanks to the owners too.A previous customer - 31st January 2016
We had a great time and the perfect Christmas get together. The space in the large barn was perfect for us all to gather in and the fact each family unit had their own wing was brilliant.Diana W, Suffolk - 29th December 2014
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, our visitors from USA were very impressed with everything. One of the best xmas’s ever. Thank you. Mrs Lyn Lynch
We had a wonderful stay at Vale Farm Barns and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a self catered stay in Suffolk. The barns were so clean, spacious and had lots of games for Children including high chairs and travel cots. Mr George Yardley
