My husband and I booked our stay the day before online. The day of we received a voice mail and email asking for our ETA which we gave as between 6-7 pm although we weren't sure as we were trying to get a lot of sights in. Their response "don't show up before 6:30 as no one will be there".... More

I had my own wedding here recently. Great day, great weather, great place, food was unbelievable. All ran seamlessly. Would definitely recommend Barnabrow for any kind of a get together. Hoping to visit for a weekend away towards end of year, for a bit of peace and tranquillity! Thanks Barnabrow, we thoroughly enjoyed our day.

From the minute I drove up the winding entrance to Barnabrow House, I knew this was where I was to be married. This venue oozes charm. It is beyond cute, there are so many little nooks and crannies. Around every corner is something new and beautiful. The manner with which we were dealt with was so professional and personal also,... More

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this place. We stayed for a recent wedding and i was blown away by the whole experience. I have read some of the comments below and feel they are a little unfair. It is an old country house and that is the charm of Barnabrow. There are always going to be little glitches and quirks when... More

We had lunch with friends today and it was excellent. Three had beef for main course and one fish. Starters were black pudding kinda salad which was great. the creme brûlée was to die for with the lovely shortcake biscuits. We had coffees and bottle of red wine. It was very reasonable and so the dining room was full. Service... More

Recently stayed over at this house due to wedding attendance. Whilst the wedding and the reception dinner were very good we were unable to get a drink or snack prior to the event. This was disappointing as most guests had travelled from afar. The bedrooms were mediocre at best and certainly not worth the price paid. Small rooms that could... More

We had our wedding here in June. What an excellent venue. When we arrived, our guests were sitting out on the decking enjoying the sunshine. We also had our wedding band, The Big Jigs entertaining our guests. What a magnificent arrival. Geraldine and all the staff could not have enough for us. The food was excellent and we have not...

Really lovely setting and the reception drink and food afterwards was top notch 👍I had the roast beef sirloin and my wife had the salmon ... The hall area was really welcoming ...

This 3 night stay was booked for my daughters wedding . Most of the guests arrived on the Friday ... Only to discover that no facilities were open at the venue. It may have been advisable to have been pre warned of this, as the nearest town was 10 km away..!! Having said that... The breakfast the subsequent mornings was... More

We stayed here for 3 days for a wedding. Beautiful grounds, the staff are extremely helpful, the food was fantastic, lots of choice at breakfast. The room we had was lovely, very clean and tastefully decorated, with tea and coffee making facilities. The on-suite had plenty of complimentary toiletries and lots of clean towels every day. There are also cottages... More
