I searched for somewhere near Leominster for the recent Easter weekend as my wife and I where interested in visiting several of the local National Trust properties. The previous reviews convinced me to give the Barr a try, and what a wonderful weekend we had. Ruth and Tim where excellent hosts, from the very warm welcome (complimentary tea and cake)... More

We originally were looking to stay elsewhere near Kingsland but due to unfavourable reviews for those places we decided to stay at the Barr with Tim and Ruth nearby. That was probably the best decision we had ever made. I can honestly say my wife and I have never ever been made to feel so welcome. We were in the... More

We spent one night here in our travels through Herefordshire and felt really comfortable and cosseted by the very friendly owners and their well behaved dog. A tasty evening meal was served (highly recommended as the location is rural ) The room was comfortable and the whole place loved and cared for. Breakfast was beautifully presented and quite enough to... More

Booked The Barr for a four night stay in May 2014. I wanted to do some family history research and my husband wanted to go cycling. What a find! Ruth and Tim were great hosts , very welcoming, treated us as friends and encouraged us to regard their home as our own for the duration of our stay. The Barr... More

We booked this B&B to coincide with our tour of the Black & White Trail. Appropriately, Ruth and Tim have a black-and-white dog and a black-and-white cat. They also have a beautiful home whose origins date back to the 16th and a superb garden that has everything--fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, landscaping, architecture, colorful flowers, bold plants. Ruth serves the most... More

A colleague and I stayed at The Barr for 3 nights. Ruth and Tim were excellent hosts and they kept a very warm and inviting establishment. The general decor of their house was lovely, with traditional exposed timber framework, a superb living room with log burning stove, lovely new bathroom and comfy and spacious bedroom. Breakfast was plentiful with cereals,... More

Ruth and Tim run a beautiful B&B in a lovely old Herefordshire farmhouse surrounded by idyllic, quintessentially English countryside, just half a dozen miles from Leominster. There are two rooms, which share a very luxurious bathroom; the room I had was very well appointed and most comfortable. You are welcomed as a friend rather than a weary traveller (which I... More

If you are staying in the Hereford area, travel a little further and try this as an alternative to the standard Inns and hotels - you really will not be disappointed. Ruth and Tim are excellent hosts - you can have privacy when you want it and company if you do not. Their home is warm and friendly, the rooms... More

We stayed at The Barr for one night but will definitely return. We have stayed in B&Bs for over 30 years and this was quite simply one of the best. For us the two key aspects were quality and attention to detail. Ruth and Tim make you feel very welcome with a real sense of sharing their home rather than... More

We had a brief stay at The Barr where Tim and Ruth welcomed us into their home. After a decent journey the fluffy towels and gowns to use after a shower in the home-from-home bathroom were appreciated. Our room was so relaxing, warm and comfortable. Choice of drinks all set out, windows overlooking the fabulous garden and surrounding fields. An... More
