“The perfect cottage in a wonderful location!”
Reviewed 16 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a really memorable weekend in Owl Barn. The converted barn was everything we hoped for - impeccably clean, spacious, light, cosy and beautiful. With two living rooms, a great kitchen and a long dining table, there were plenty of communal spaces for chilling, as well as comfortable bedrooms with en suites and brilliant power showers. The hot tub and the fireplace were added bonuses!! The owners welcomed us warmly and were extremely helpful - we couldn't have asked for more. We also loved the location - the Herefordshire countryside is peaceful and picturesque. We were lucky with the weather so we enjoyed walking and exploring a few local pubs.
A car is certainly advisable - taxis and public transport are quite hard to get hold of.
Overall, our stay was perfect. Thank you so much to the owners - I would certainly return and recommend Owl Barn to any large groups in search of blissful relaxation without a shadow of a doubt!

“Just Awesome”
Reviewed 25 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We travelled to Owl Barn to celebrate my 50th Birthday and had wanted to rent a large high quality property for a long weekend, to be shared by 11 family members - 8 Adults, 2 teenagers and 1 child.
The Barn is nestled deep in the countryside down a single track lane and whilst it took us a little while to find the property, it was well worth the wait. It has real WoW factor and reminded us of something you would see on Grand Designs We loved the open plan nature of the Barn. All the bedrooms were beautifully furnished with really comfy beds and beautifully kitted out bathrooms.
The large upstairs seating area provided a great space for the whole family to gather in the evening and was very cosy especially with the wood burner lit. The kitchen was phenomenal - it had everything you could want or need. My only gripe was the small fridge space considering the size of party that the property can accommodate, but it was manageable. We loved the massive dining table which made meal times a real social occasion.
A real bonus was the hot tub. Even though it was freezing outside, once sat in the tub you were toasty warm and to sit looking up at the starry night sky was something quite special.
Becky the owner was really helpful throughout the booking process and was more than happy to answer any questions we had before arrival. Her son came over early evening to check that we had settled in and to answer any questions. The welcome basket of snacks, bread, wine, biscuits, milk and butter was a lovely touch as were the beautiful vase of flowers on the table and very welcome after our journey. We had groceries delivered by Tesco which turned up without any problems and with no substitutes or items missing.
I would thoroughly recommend Owl Barn - it is a real gem of a place and ideal if you are looking for a large property to share with family or friends or for that special celebration , believe me you won't be disappointed. We can't wait to return next year!

absolutely class place to stay, never knew anything of the area before going to Owl barn , but the standard of accommodation, the welcoming of the owners and the whole ambience of the area has me thinking Ill be looking at going back, kids loved it especially the sky at night seeing the stars and above all the quietness of the place, no traffic sounds just peace

“Superb property, beautifully finished, great hosts”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Rented for my Dad's 70th Birthday celebration. There were 12 of us at one point including 4 children between 4 & 10. Layout is superb, bedrooms & bathrooms are finished to the highest standard and the kitchen and dining area just lend themselves to having a great time!

Would recommend to anyone for a great getaway venue and worth every penny.
