We got married at the Barns last weekend. It was absolutely fantastic! The staff are so helpful especially the wedding planners. We had the perfect day and all of our guests loved it too. From the stunning venues to the rooms and staff I would recommend the barns to everyone. Thank you :)

The room was acceptable, the TV was poor not many channels and the reception was awful. The breakfast was late in coming even after twice asking for service. Bad start to the day. Nice setting next to a river and good location for travelling.

Dinner was good, had sea bass and potato roti that I would recommend. Was in a meeting in the barn the next day and it was very uncomfortable as the heating did not kick in... More

Recently stayed here for a night whilst attending a friends wedding reception at the hotel. Thoroughly enjoyed the wedding and the staff were all very friendly throughout. The room was spacious and comfortable, at check in we were asked if we had a preference whether the room was upstairs or downstairs which was a nice touch. A free Wifi code... More

I recently got married at the barns hotel and it was wonderful. In the run up to the wedding we had several meetings to go through all details for the day. On the day everything worked like clockwork thanks to Maggy and the team. The set up was done with expert precision. No ask was too much. Breakfast was delicious... More

One of the reasons we booked was to have a romantic night eating dinner in the conservatory overlooking the river but the restaurant was in use for a wedding so we were put in a small room to eat. The waiter was great but the room was not up to... More
