Pros-The location is beautiful, the food is good especially the buffet breakfast. The garden around the ruins is must see. Perfect for families and couples. Very romantic setting.

Cons- The amenities in the rooms are mediocre. Nothing special about the spa. Communication between the Front desk and housekeeping could be improved. We asked for late check out and they still kept knocking at our door in the morning.

I was really impressed with the resort and the accommodations. It is like staying in a cute little village. We ended up booking a Cottage Suite King as the Manor rooms were booked and it was worth it. Had a livingroom area and separate bedroom. Very nice. Great golf course and absolutely beautiful and enchanting manor house ruins and gardens. Both restaurants (Woodland Grill and Rice House) had good food, but I felt a little hungry still after I left. Also, a 20% gratituity/service charge is automatically added into your bill. I don't mind this practice, but feel the waitors should tell you about this. (Feel like its a little sneaky that they don't). Tip: Stop at the Food Lyon when you exit 75 on 140 and pick up drinks, snacks, fruit (and wine). There really is no place to get this there but the gift shop in the lobby and snacks were overpriced and not very good. The only place to dine is at the resort. Closest town is 1/2 hr away.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the Cottage Suite King with its own living room area/wet bar.

I had planned a trip to Barnsley Gardens this past week primarily to play its golf course. Unfortunately it rained and disrupted my plans. My frustration is that the resort has a seven-day cancellation policy. Weather.com called for rain the day of my plans, and in fact it was the only day of rain that week. It would have been much better to have an option of being able to cancel closer to the actual date vs. hoping that the weather forecast would change over a week in advance. I was told at checkout that I could have changed dates, but that information would have been much more beneficial if I would have known that in advance, not after the fact. Needless to say, be advised of their cancellation requirements and the impact it may have on your stay when booking at this resort. Otherwise, it seemed to be a pleasant place, with high quality facilities, a good restaurant, but very remote.

Barnsley Gardens ranks among the best country resorts in the nation. Their multi-room cottages are ideal for families and large groups. The grounds are well maintained and there are an abundance of activities. The staff also couldn't be friendlier.

We stayed at Barnsley about 15 years ago and enjoyed our stay. It is only an hour from our home and we had not been back. We attended a wedding here recently and stayed on the grounds. What a great place for a wedding! The setting was lovely. The accommodations were outstanding. Everyone found something they enjoyed doing. We will not wait 15 years to return. Kudos to the staff!
