We booked this venue to celebrate my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. The houses were very well equipped, had everything we needed and accommodated us all well.

Good facilities around the area like swimming pool, play park, hot tubs etc.

The only thing was that the venue is shared by others so be aware that you may get a noisy party although this cannot be helped by the owners!

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here and it accommodated us well.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your stay with us at the end of June 2018. So pleased everything was to your satisfaction as that was one of the hottest week-ends on record so the pool was a great hit. We do have a collection of cottages, houses, lodges and apartments on the estate and with the windows and doors open the noise does sometimes carry across the valley.

We have now had three separate reviews from your party and you all seemed to enjoy yourselves.

We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

Kind regards

Claire, Penny & The Team of The Victorian Barn

Stayed here in the main 2 houses, lovely place with great equipped kitchens and plenty to do there, great sized pool, games room and in general beautiful surroundings! The use of the hots tubs were definitely a bonus as well. Really nice and very helpful owners/staff, would highly recommend!!

Thank you for writing a review on behalf of the wedding guests who stayed with us on the week-end of 13 - 16 July. So pleased the wedding of your daughter and new son-in-law went well and the weather held up all of the time for the marquee reception in your garden. It is lovely to be able to offer our accommodation and leisure facilities to the locals for special occasions or just when you would like friends to visit.

Kind Regards

We were a large group of 12 staying for a weekend hen do - the accommodation was PERFECT. We had a party room complete with bar, two kitchens and two living rooms. I stayed in the downstairs living room which converted into a bedroom thanks to two double sofa beds. In the July heat it was the perfect room as two sets of French doors out into the gardens allowed for a lovely breeze. We were also spoiled with our own hot tub and we were right next door to the pool house which housed a large pool complete with a shower and a sauna. There was also a lovely looking play area for children with swings and slides and a games house which we didn’t get to see up close but looked very accommodating. I chatted with the owner who couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful - she came over to tell us about a ladies night at the local pub (about a mile and a half away but a nice walk apparently) and let us coo over her dog :) The facility stands in some gorgeous countryside with cute villages only short drives away. We passed lots of stunning thatched cottages and riverside hamlets on the way in. The way the house is laid out is perfect for large family gatherings - you can section out the upstairs and downstairs if wanted and in our case the two kitchens meant that the mess from dinner downstairs the night before didn’t stop us cooking (and making a new mess!) in the upstaits kitchen for breakfast the next day. There are plenty of toilet facilities, a downstairs shower room serviced us sleeping in the front room and there was an upstairs bathroom plus on suites. I honestly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this wonderful facility to anyone and plan a return trip as soon as possible!

Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely and informative review of your stay with us on the week-end of 6 - 8 July 2018. It was a lovely hot week-end so you were able to enjoy a lot of the outside lawned areas. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

We stayed in The Stable which was lovely; just right for the 2 of us. We also had a hot tub which was worth every penny. The owners and staff are very nice, the amenities are excellent and clean, the wifi is fast, the fishing was good although 2 lakes had become quite weedy since our last visit but we still caught lots of fish, from 1/2lb roach to 17lb carp.
We were able to have a look around the Victoria and Albert suite - it was amazing!, perfect for a large family/group.
We will definitely be staying here again.
