I was lucky enough to stay at Barnsley Gardens for a business meeting for four nights in April. This was an excellent experience for me. The grounds are beautiful although some stiff frosts earlier in the month had hurt the flowers and many of the trees.
My room was excellent, comfortable bed and very nice bathroom.
I enjoyed a personal tour of the museum by the ruins of the manor house. The history in the area is very interesting and the lady looking after the museum was very pleasant and full of information.
The golf course if quite spectacular, particularly two of the par threes.
The staff were excellent, always ready to help and gave me a good impression of 'Southern Hospitality'
