I organised a Married Couples Retreat during the half term week in October 2017 and booked exclusive use of all the Barn's from Monday to Friday. From the beginning the managing staff were incredibly friendly, warm and helpful in making our booking and were always willing to help with the (many) additional requests we made. When we arrived, every single person was bowled over by how beautiful and quality the accommodations were, from the bedrooms and bathrooms to the kitchens, and living rooms everything was clean and stylishly rustic. The Barn's felt so warm and homely and well supplied with everything we needed for our stay. We were able to bring our own caterer and The Barn's staff were a great support to her as well. Thanks for having us and we'll certainly be back soon. We highly recommend it!
I booked this place for my friend's hen party - and it was just beautiful. From the moment we booked, Steph totally looked after us, answering all my questions, sending additional information for activities/places to visit etc/other services etc.
On arrival we had fresh cake and a goody box of delicious jams, nibbles. We were actually moved from one property to main Mill Barn due to a leak but this just added to our fantastic stay. The properties are all beautifully presented, clean, cosy and super warm (the underfloor heating is such a bonus!). The added benefit of the hot tub meant we didn't want to stray too far from the place.
I cannot recommend this place and the housekeeping team highly enough - the hen party had such a fab time and I will definitely be back.
We booked the Old Mill and Hayloft for a long weekend for a family get together and we couldn't find fault with the guest services or the accommodation. We did have a medical emergency when an older member of the party became ill with an infection and the Herefordshire emergency services were amazing. If you want to know how special the living/Dining/ Kitchen area is - the paramedic who came in to update us on the patient they were taking to hospital walked through the door and went WOW!.
We couldn't believe how well the kitchen area was equipped , although we would have like more knives for preparation. Saying that we managed and never ran out of anything,
The " starter "pack of dishwasher tabs, tea towels etc was more than adequate and the cake was truly scrumptious.
The bedrooms and bathrooms were fabulous and the "entertainment" rooms were brilliant. We loved the "quirky" furniture made from farm objects.
I would like to say a special thank you to Sally whose welcome was amazing and the sign off when we left was personal, professional and friendly. A great front of house lady!
We would love to go back and hopefully we will and we continue to advise others to give it a go - if you do you won't be disappointed!
12 of us stayed in the Old Byre for my 50th birthday, I cannot underestimate how lovely our stay was. The property is immculate and perfect for a big group. The huge kitchen has a real wow factor and we spent most of our trip in there or the movie room, or the hot tub!. The main living room is beautiful too. I would highly recommend this and hope to visit again sometime :)
We stayed at The Barns for a family party to celebrate my sisters 50th birthday, there was 24 of us in total. The Barns is beautiful and immaculate, everyone was very happy with their accommodation with all the bedrooms and bathrooms being equal in their loveliness so no arguments there :)
We had Lyn Bullock come along and do a BBQ for us on the Saturday, recommended by Sally and Steph, she did an amazing job, brought all the food, crockery and cleaned everything up after, leaving us tidy and full.
The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we could possible need with the biggest fridge I have ever seen, which somehow we still managed to fill!!
Spa towels and slippers were provided for the hot tub, a very nice touch.
We brought our little dogs so the private garden was very welcome, a wonderful weekend, we just need to find another reason to celebrate, would be a amazing place to celebrate Christmas for a big family.
Thank you to Sally, Steph, Bev and all the team - great job :)
As a group of 30 something's for a hen do, we could not have hoped for a more perfect venue. The barns are stunning, fitted out to an extremely high standard, and very thoughtfully designed. There were 20 of us, so we hired two of the barns which worked perfectly. We made use of the cooking facilities, which had everything you need to cater for a large group. Sally and the team were so friendly and helpful from start to finish. Thanks so much for a wonderful weekend!
We chose The Barns at Upper House as the location for 48 hours away with our nearest and dearest to celebrate my 40th Birthday. It was absolutely perfect. The location is gorgeous, the accommodation is to a very high specification and the whole place is perfectly set up for this sort of thing. It was very straightforward in terms of booking/admin/logistics. All the facilities are there for a perfect weekend or week away. On arrival, we were greeted immediately by Sally who showed us around. A lovely cake and fresh juices, along with some nibbles were left as a greeting hamper, and we immediately felt at home.
If you are planning something similar, with lots of busy, hard working guests who want to relax, can we recommend Rachel and Beverley? These two lovely ladies came in to help us both mornings with tidying away from the night before, and cooking breakfasts and serving guests, most of whom had large hangovers!! They were amazing, helpful, polite and worth every single penny. The Barns can organise for them to come in and help. We also used the caterers The Cider Barn whom we were introduced to via Sally Williams and the Barns management team and were very happy with them too.
I really hope this business goes from strength to strength, it fully deserves to. We would recommend it to anyone.
