Woodfarm Barns is home to 7 Luxury, Self-Catering, Dog-Friendly Holiday Cottages nestled in the heart of rural Suffolk. Having stayed in Woodfarm House with my family, we were so impressed with the accommodation and the very warm welcome that we received on arrival, that we wanted to tell all our friends and family about them. We really did feel it was a home from home, offering that real escape from the stresses of normal life. We were pleasantly surprised to have a Welcome Suffolk Breakfast Basket to help us kick off our first day and even treats for the dogs too.
I met with Carl Scott, the owner of Woodfarm Barns to discuss putting these amazing properties on film so that other guests could have a video to share with friends and family and encourage more people to come and try out these lovely cottages.
Have a look through the videos above to check out the gorgeous holiday accommodation he has to offer. See what Carl had to say about the work we did to produce the series of films and how they have positively impacted on his business and how his customers enjoy watching the short promo films. There is nothing more satisfying than to see the films we produce for our clients have such a Positive FX on their business and their customers!
The project took approximately 12 months to produce mainly due to the fact that Woodfarm Barns is a very popular holiday destination, so gaining access to film the cottages during spring and summer proved quite a challenge and as a result, it took 7-8 months to complete filming.
Each property takes approximately 0.5 to 1 full day to film. We then film interviews with the owner to form the narrative script that walks you through the features of each property. The overall goal in filming these properties was to provide visitors to the Woodfarm Barns website, a brief insight into what they can expect when they arrive. This included not just showcasing a collection of properties but to also capture the quietness where you can hear the singing birds which are always a delight to hear and trying to get a snap shot of the ducklings before they float away down stream. Then there is the rather delicious Welcome Breakfast Basket, and treats for the dogs as well! Showcasing these holiday cottages was all about showing how they really are a home from home. We have to admit, the film crew had to resist not jumping into one of the amazing hot-tubs at the end of filming!
We produced a series of 8 short films: One overall promotional film that provides an overview of Woodfarm Barns and then 7 short films that focus on each cottage individually. Since filming the cottages, Woodfarm Barns has now expanded into offering ‘holiday barges accommodation’ and we were asked to pop back and film these too.
“I am delighted with the results Positive FX Studio have achieved for us. From the initial conversation, the vision has always been to display my holiday cottages in a credible way and this has been achieved. Over the moon” Carl Scott, Woodfarm Barns, Holiday Cottages in Suffolk.
Did you know that having a video to promote your property could increase bookings by 20%?
That is a fantastic return on your investment!
If you have holiday accommodation that would benefit from being shown on video, then we would be delighted to showcase them for you on film. Please do get in touch to see how we might be able to help.
