Loved this upgraded country manor farmhouse in truly rural location. Stephanie on reception was so helpful, preparing a snack in the late afternoon. Room was great with good ac, posh bathroom. Dinner was excellent, great wine flight, staff were friendly and helpfull. Only slight negative is I feel breakfast could have been better, bit boring, packet cereals, really??

We stayed at the Domaine for the first time this week and found it to be a very restful and enjoyable experience. Happily, we were upgraded on arrival and after a couple of hours of leisure around the beautiful grounds we sat down for a magnificent dinner - great quality and presentation, supplemented by a range off amuse bouches which...

This was a one night stopover in early June, a group of 5 couples on a road trip, and we all wished we could have extended our stay here. The hotel's setting is beautifully rural, in a tranquil wooded area within gently rolling, almost manicured farmland. Our rooms were spacious, very well decorated and equipped, with an equestrian theme. Food... More

We enjoyed a fantastic night at Domaine de Barive last week with friends. The location is secluded and isolated away from everything. The food was amazing with the attention to detail second to none. The pool was warm and inviting and all in all we enjoyed out visit enormously.

Stayed for one night in a Lux room which was an upgrade from the classic room we initially booked. The grounds are impressive and the Chateau itself is beautiful, one of the prettiest we've seen. The room had a lovely view of the front garden and felt clean, it did however feel tired with an old carpet, an unidentified stain... More

Thank you for your comments. We renovate some rooms each year but we can't change the carpet after each guest. On individual request of our customers, we provide some bread with gluten, but it isn't systematic. I hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon! More

We arrived late due to underestimating the drive from Switzerland en route to Calais so we missed the evening meal. Bathroom in our superior loft room very poor - hand held shower in the bath, lukewarm water, peeling paint etc. Staff generally friendly. Breakfast poor - packets of cereal along with bit of ham and cheese. Grounds not that impressive... More

How can we judge viciously The Domain ? You don't have dinner. You don't go to the Spa. You have booked a standard room with bath , so no shower! We have prepared a snack while you arrived late ; It's rare in a small hotel Amazed by your reaction , I let the readers make their own judgments but... More

Set out in the country this chateau/farm house has a beautiful setting. Rooms are large enough, well decorated and somewhat quirky. The food is excellent but ludicrously expensive. Staff were very professional but friendly. Had a wonderful 2 days but now need to take out a second mortgage to pay for it.

Situated in a Superb location, with very friendly & helpful staff, plenty to see in the area, a visit to Leon is a must, and great facilities plus excellent food in the restaurant. Other places to visit are WW1 & 2 war graves, glass factory and wet lands for fishing and bird watching to say nothing of the quaint villages
