About Andrew and Ann Gilmour

Andrew and Ann bought and refurbished Willow Farm and its outbuildings 30 years ago. It has been an ongoing labour of love for us. The cottage shares 4 acres of grounds and was completely refurbished in 2015.

We like to see our guests enjoy Willow Farm, the village and surrounding area. We respect your privacy but can provide you with any information you may need to enhance your stay

Andrew and Ann Gilmour purchased this barn in 1986

Why Andrew and Ann Gilmour chose Woodbridge

Our guests love the outlook from the cottage over the water meadows and the south and west facing aspects. With the ability to walk to 2 local pubs for a drink or great food and enjoy the picturesque and quiet location.

Woodbridge is a short drive away for restaurants, cinema and riverside walks. For the more adventurous it is a lovely walk to Woodbridge along the river and a short taxi ride back after supper!

Less than 20 minutes away is the famed Heritage coast where most visitors enjoy Orford, Snape, Aldeburgh, Thorpe Ness, Dunwich, Southwold and Framlingham.

What makes this barn unique

The cottage is nestled in the extensive gardens of Willow farm. Our guests appreciate the spacious cottage and the balance between an old barn and a contemporary finish. They comment on the efforts we have made to cater for their every need.

Walking around the area of the village is a joy and there are 2 great pubs serving food a short walk away.

ideal base

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a week walking in Suffolk and used this converted barn as our base. We were warm and comfortable and can highly recommend the village pub The White Lion.

Beautiful barn in idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights in this lovely property arriving in the snow! It was lovely and cosy once we got the log burner going and it had everything we needed. We walked to the local pub, The White Lion, which is small and cosy and very inviting. We had a lovely weekend and would recommend this property to anyone. You can see how popular it is by looking at the availability this year, not much! We definitely hope to visit again, as although we've been to Suffolk many times, have not found anywhere as lovely as this. And thanks to Andrew and his family for help pushing us out of the snow in our little car!

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. The grounds are wonderful, Ann and Andrew are lovely people who left us on our own to enjoy the peace and quiet and the cottage is cosy and comfortable and has been furnished and decorated to a high standard. We can't wait to come back in the summer so we can enjoy the outdoors (it was a bit cold in February!).

Very nice cosy cottage in a large garden with ponds

  • 5 of 5

The setting for the cottage is really peaceful - with lots of space for the children to run around - a very large garden with a couple of large ponds looking onto meadows. The cottage itself is very characterful and cosy and well-equipped with two good size bedrooms upstairs (one double and one twin) each with its own en-suite. Andrew helped us with the wood fire when we lit it wrongly and got smokey which was fun. I would really recommend it if you want a peaceful break in a rural setting. We stayed three nights which is the minimum I would suggest to really make the most of it and relax a bit. We went in winter which was very nice but I think it would be great in summer too when you could make the most of the garden.
