    We had the best time ever. Highly recommend staying at Buffs Old Barn. Beautiful setting, outstanding accommodation and very pleasant and accommodating hosts. Buffs Old Barn is unique and equipped to accommodate people of all ages.

    We had a wonderful and absolutely relaxing holiday at Woodside Barn (Buffs Old Barn) which is well-equipped, clean, nicely presented and decorated. The owners, Jeannie and Anne, welcomed us with a lovely starter hamper (milk, cava and home-made cake). It's a very dog-friendly cottage in a tranquil environment, the view from the lounge is so peaceful. We really liked the walks starting right from the doorstep, particularly so in rainy days. All the Suffolk beaches are close (Aldeburgh, Southwold, Dunwich). We loved croissants and bread from Pump Street Bakery in Orford, a great selection of fish from Maximus Sustainable Fishing, and fresh vegs & fruits from Friday Street Farm Shop.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful and comfortable barn in Friston village. Set in a peaceful rural setting but close to the coast. The beds were very comfortable, ensuite facilities excellent, and the kitchen was well equipped.Games provided and a good selecton of leaflets/books on places to visit. The owners were very helpful and on hand should any problems have arisen. Lovely comfortable table and chairs in the garden for outdoor dining and watching the wildlife. Hope to return for a future holiday.

    The barn is a gem. Full of character & charm. Stayed here with my daughter and her family + 2 dogs. The accommodation was perfect for our requirements. We wanted for nothing and the owners were so accommodating over everything. There is a lovely pub in the village- excellent food and warm welcome. We loved it, and would certainly return.

    Really lovely place to stay. Jeannie and her sister were very accommodating and informative. Woodside Barn is very well equipped and clean to a high standard. We would definitely recommend to friends and family and stay again ourselves.
