“Perfect property for a group of friends”
Reviewed February 20, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A group of 17 friends stayed here for 2 nights for New Year's.

The property was exactly as described. The kitchen had enough space to store all of our food and cook everything, with 2 fridges and 2 freezers, and plenty of glasses and plates etc. The living area was a bit of a squeeze for the 17 of us. Although the bar is a great idea, there was not much room between the bar and the back wall! There were enough chairs for everyone to sit around the tables, but there were only 2 small sofas.

However, the bedroom made up for the lack of space in the living area. It was great, with chandeliers, a projector screen, and lots of fairy lights! It felt like being on Big Brother which was quite amusing for everyone!

There were separate bathrooms for boys and girls which suited us perfectly. There was only 1 shower in each bathroom but this wasn't a problem.

Graham was extremely helpful in answering questions before we arrived! There was plenty of parking space and the outside areas were lovely. It wasn't the cleanest property, but it was cheap and cheerful so you get what you pay for.

Overall we had a really fun couple of days and I would definitely recommend this property and return for another weekend!

“Perfect for a weekend getaway”
Reviewed November 3, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I stayed in this property for a reunion of friends, aged 24-30. It was a great setting for a weekend away. We had been worried that the barn may get cold at the end of October but with underfloor heating in the bedroom and a fireplace in the living area this was not a problem. Although there are other cottages joined to the barn, we were hardly aware that they were there. Julia and Graham were very helpful and friendly (as were their dogs!). Would definitely stay again.

“Best Stay We Could Ever Wished”
Reviewed October 15, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Graham was an incredible host. He was always available to help us when we had questions. He was very patient and helpful in helping us settle in when we first arrived. He also trusts his guests a lot which is very admirable.

The barn is also a perfect getaway from the city. It is super spacious, very close to nature and very well equipped. Cultery, utensils, cleaning materials were all well stocked, including toilet facilities (there was one male and one female toilet!). It is the ideal place for bonding time.

There is a grocery store 30 minutes away reachable by foot. Also train station is about 20 minutes away by taxi. Taxi in bedford is really affordable since 6 people only spent 8 pounds on a one-way trip!

Would love to be back again. Thank you Graham and Julia!

“Great group accommodation”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I stayed here from 31st july-2nd august with a group of ladies. Such an amazing place in the countryside. Perfect for a weekend away.
The bunkhouse was immaculate when we arrived. With everything we needed right there.
Graham and Julia have been amazing before our arrival and during if we needed. Couldn't have asked for better hosts.
Would definitely recommend this to others and would love to go back.

“Breathtaking Ladies Hide Away Weekend”
Reviewed July 17, 2015 for a stay in May 2015
1
person found this review helpful

As a group of 17 women, staying in ONE barn, there was a little apprehension, but this soon turned into fun and a spiritual May Bank holiday weekend at the Outfields Farm,
Graham and Julie is a wonderful couple that made our experience at the self catering property simple. From my first telephone conversation with Graham to being shown around and the meet and greet to check- in and check-out was stress free. Graham & Julie are very accommodating; they provided us with additional fridges/freezer to store all of the food and drinks we had taken. Nothing was too much for them and they assured us we just had to knock on their door which was ideally placed just across the way from the barn.

Once we arrive at the start of the estate, we were greeted with approx. ¾ mile drive through beautiful, peaceful countryside – a welcome and relaxing treat for busy city based women.

There is adequate parking, an area for alfresco dining and seating during the warm weather, and a barbecue area.

Upon entering the main area of the 100+ year old rustic barn, it was spacious, full of character (stain glass windows, and would you believe chandeliers and fairy lights, the wonderful wooden beams are just a few of the highlights! Other facilities include a sitting room with bar, washrooms containing two wet rooms and 5 toilets, (towels were white crispy and very soft), a spacious kitchen leading onto a large garden area, again with facility for barbecue and alfresco dining overlooks acres of open fields which was just breath-taking .
Outfield Barn is ideal for groups, excellent price, and was home from home for our group- we would have spent another night, if only it wasn’t booked!
We are all looking forward to spending another weekend at the barn soon.

“Perfect country retreat for a large group”
Reviewed May 11, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

We had a lovely time up in Ravensden over the Bank Holiday weekend - there was 13 of us looking for a nice spacious place out in the countryside and at a reasonable price, and this was exactly that. For what we paid, the accomdation and the stay completely exceeded our expectations.

Graham and Julia are lovely and showed us around and left us to our own devices - especially being quite a young large group they were very accommodating of us and made us feel welcome.

The kitchen is great and I'd highly recommend you take full advantage of it and the space you've got to create some lovely food! Plenty of outdoor space which was great for us when the rain finally subsided, however when it was chucking it down there's plenty of space in the living area/bar and the bedroom to keep you entertained.

The bathroom facilities all grand too - new and fully kitted out and again exceeded all our expectations.

Ravensden is a lovely place too, we went for a lovely walk and it was great to be in the open air - us all being from London this was quite the luxury! I'd recommend having a look for a walk called "A ramble around Ravensden" - this is what we did and really enjoyed it.

If you're thinking of going away with a large group of people I genuinely don't think you'll find a place better than it - excellent price, beautiful surroundings, great facilities and lovely hosts. :)

We booked the barn last minute due to a cancellation from a previous venue, and it was the best decision we ever made.
Graham and Julia were around during the weekend, happy to lend us items we had forgotten, they were friendly, funny and welcoming.

The barn itself is a dream, beautifully decorated, spacious, luxurious and surrounded by so much nature, fresh air and good vibes..
We have found our new monthly retreat venue!
i cannot see Britain providing anywhere more perfect for us..
I would recommend this place to everyone :-)
