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 Suffolk

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.

This is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing few days away from it all! Absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to this property and hopefully not our last! From the moment we arrived, we knew it was something special. Idyllic location with wonderful surrounding countryside. The barn was so well equipped, clean and comfortable, we wanted for absolutely nothing. From the comfortable bed to the well equipped kitchen, it was absolutely delightful. The grounds and surrounding countryside are beautiful!

Thank you to Andrew and Anne, we shall certainly return and highly recommend to friends and family.

Gary and Julie, St Albans.

What a great little place - everything you need - clean - wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

5 stars - I intend to use this place for all future visits to family in the area. It was better than expected with friendly hosts. The peace and quiet of the area is beautiful.

Pieceful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely few days break. The Barn was fantastic, it had everything you could possibly want from a holiday property.

We have stayed in many cottages this barn was one of the best.

We hope to return again, summer would be an ideal time to spend sitting out in the large grounds admiring the different aspects.

We would definitely recommend this property.

We had such an amazing time at this cottage. There was so much to do and see. The cottage itself was very well equipped and the owners welcoming. We'll be back!

Exactly as shown on the website (always a relief!)

  • 5 of 5

Four of us arrived back today, having celebrated three of our 60th birthdays, and we couldn't have chosen a better place - Willow Farm Cottage was just gorgeous, fully fitted out and set in the most lovely grounds.

Andrew couldn't have been more helpful, and we all had a great time. I agree with one of the much earlier reviews about wanting to keep the cottage a secret!

Beautiful location, charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent stay here - my boys (6 and 4) noted that they "preferred our holiday home to our actual home" - what's not to love for them - a gorgeous garden to play in, lots of privacy, a resident owl to watch, their own beautiful twin room and ensuite bathroom. For the grown ups - a gorgeous double room, a beautiful ensuite (NB a little tricky if like my husband you are ridiculously tall but great for 99.9% of people!) lots of privacy, very helpful and accommodating owners (we have had some horrific experiences with 3rd party lettings companies) for whom nothing was too much trouble. The Gilmours (owners) are clearly (and rightly) proud and passionate about Willow Farm Cottage. In terms of the location - we found this perfect and in a week barely scratched the surface in terms of what is on offer. The local town (Woodbridge) is lovely, There are brilliant pubs in walking and short driving distance, the shopping and art at Snape Maltings is great and the seaside towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh (both beautifully unspoilt) are well within driving distance even with 2 young kids. We joined HHA and English Heritage and there was loads we could visit in the area. Will we return - absolutely! Just wishing for better weather next time.....
