With 20 guests to accommodate before and after my daughter's wedding, we found this superb venue that could fit everyone in adequately, with 6 in the main farmhouse and 6 in Croft Cottage, all B&B, with the other 8 self-catering in the 5 star Cook Hill Cottage close by. Everyone that stayed commented on how comfortable they found the venues,... More

The accommodation was clean, tidy and spacious, all of our guests were really happy with their rooms and the attention to detail, especially in the bridal... More

Common Barn Farm is tucked away in the hills at the end of a quite rough track - not a problem for normal cars, but probably not advisable for Ferrari owners. It is a really beautiful location with great views in all directions. My room was spacious, clean, well equipped and most comfortable. Breakfast was good, and the local bacon... More

In fact her patience must have been pushed... More

I attended my friends wedding in July. In the run up to the wedding my friend was delighted with the staff whilst planning and there seemed to be no concerns. On arrival the location was amazing. However on getting into the cottages, both myself and my partner were slightly disappointed. Although not awful this is 3 star accommodation at a... More

In addition, the bride and groom of this wedding inspected the accommodation twice both before and after booking and were delighted with it. It was discovered that the bathroom lock was indeed faulty,... More

We had our wedding reception at Common Barn Farm in May. The view is stunning and although we were unlucky with the weather we were still glad to have chosen Common Barn. Jen was really helpful throughout the planning and even helped us to fix our leaky tipi on our wedding day. Our families stayed in the b&b/cottages onsite and... More

Fantastic venue and scenery! Beautiful location hidden off the main road and well worth a visit. We attended an outdoor wedding ceremony which was supported very well indeed. Rooms were spotless (B&B) and the Cottage (of which there are two) were simply amazing. Breakfast was excellent and served in a very timely manner with any request simply no trouble at... More

Common Barn Farm is an idyllic venue for a wedding (weather permitting), however we were left feeling that the proprietors are more concerned about their revenue than the happiness of the wedding couple and their families. Bearing in mind that the owners of Common Barn Farm charge for the use of their field as a wedding venue and nothing else,... More

Ange, thank you for providing your feedback. On this occasion a number of children were left unsupervised to pull a number of flowers from the garden, and also broke a young tree. It is stated in our terms and conditions that any damage to the property will be charged. A fee of £25 was charged for the replacement of these... More

I have to say I had high expectations for this place when I booked my room after having read all the positive reviews and, when you get to this countryside farm, you feel somehow excited. All the excitement ended when I walked into my room as it is not a very clean place and didn't smell or felt fresh. Let's... More

We stayed here with our 4 year old son for 2 nights. The room was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed including a mini fridge which was a bonus! The breakfast was very tasty, fresh and presented by the very welcoming and friendly host. Being a real farm was an added bonus for us as we love animals and... More
