“Wonderful chalet, for a large group”
Reviewed February 27, 2016 for a stay in May 2015

We stayed at Garth Barns to celebrate my 30th Birthday, in total we had 33 people staying in the Barns over the bank holiday weekend. Veronica made everything very easy for us, offering new sheets and towels for new guests arriving later and also accommodating a hot tub for the weekend and being available when our Tesco order arrived, which she very kindly put the fridge stuff away for us.

We had a fantastic time, the barns are massive and easily fitted us all in, they were very clean and the grounds were beautiful and immaculately kept. We changed the layout of the furniture in the main barn allowing us to have the dining table full length in the conservatory area, which meant everyone could have dinner together. This was great, and had a beautiful view of the garden.

The kitchen offered everything for us to cook for everyone, such a great selection of pots, pans, utensils etc. Two dishwashers was amazing, and such a large cooker, we even had a fridge just for the alcohol!!!

The organised treasure hunt was brilliant and all us big kids really enjoyed it, also it was great to be able to explore the wonderful grounds. The weather unfortunately didn't allow us to use the campfire but we did make use of the BBQ facilities, these were great and undercover, meaning we could cook whatever the weather!!!

The games room was also well used, the boys loved playing pool and also the space in the living area was plenty big enough for us all to play party games!

We hope we can return one day as it was such a wonderful place to stay, thank you again Veronica.

“Amazing - perfect place to stay”
Reviewed January 14, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We had an amazing time at these cottages. They were warm, comfortable and had a great feel about them. The owner Veronica was absolutely fantastic, looked after us really well and did everything she could to help. The surrounding are is also really pretty with plenty of great walks and a great sporst centre nearby. We have already booked to go back.

“Couldn't have asked for more”
Reviewed January 5, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

29 family members, spanning 3 generations, spent 4 glorious days at Garth Barns during December. The Barns felt like they had only just been refurbished, warm, comfortable, spacious and every appliance was top of the range, with everything in pristine condition. The barns never felt cramped, despite the fact there were so many of us. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with plenty to do. We had wet weather for the time we stayed, but the pool table , table tennis and gym ensured there was plenty to do. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Poor mobile phone reception even ment that the teenage contingent put their mobiles down for a bit (until they discovered the wifi)

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed January 5, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Perfect place for a large family group. Big dining space, games areas, sauna, comfy bedrooms, mostly en-suite. Fantastic walking country. Local town has decent shops and pubs. Veronica is the most welcoming and helpful host you could ever wish for. Hope to return. Excellent all round.

“Absolutely amazing 40th birthday that I will never forget!!!!”
Reviewed October 22, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Myself and 29 of my close family and friends stayed at Garth Barns for a long weekend it was brilliant.
When we arrived we were welcomed by Veronica who was lovely and friendly, the log burners were lit and the place was spotless, the rooms were much bigger than expected and really cosy there was more than enough beds to go around. The kitchens were really well equipped and there was more than enough glasses, plates etc.
To be honest we did not want to leave on the Monday.... I would highly recommend Garth Barns and we will definately be back, we just need a good excuse now!!!

“Family Holiday”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our family recently stayed at this property. The setting is beautiful. The amenities and accommodations are outstanding. At one point we had about 25 people and were able to accommodate everyone. There is plenty of space. All the rooms were lovely with gorgeous views. We swam and boated on the small lake, we used the bonfire, we used the sauna and exercise room, we played pool and table tennis, and hiked the area. The teenagers were not bored with so much to do. Veronica the owner was kind and gracious. We only saw her in the beginning and at the very end. An excellent and beautiful facility.

“Four generations family weekend away”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Garth Barns was the perfect choice for our annual family gathering catering for babies to my 89 year old Nan. The facilities are great and only left for a bit of Sunday lunch at a local pub. There is plenty of space indoors and out for the kids to play and everything is set up for large groups. The boating/swimming lake gives Garth Barns that something different, and with better weather I think we would have been spent a lot more time down there. The views from the walks/runs you can access direct from the accommodation are amazing. We wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely consider staying again. Veronica and John are great hosts, always on hand to help but let you just get on with enjoying your stay. Loved it.
