“Legoland: self-contained 2-bedroom accommodation”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

We stayed at Red Barn Farm for our trip to Legoland. We were staying for 5 nights so the cost of accommodation in Windsor itself was just too high (especially added to the cost of entry to the park). This was mostly because we wanted accommodation with a separate sleeping area for our 4 year old, so a hotel room for that duration just didn’t appeal. Red Barn Farm was lovely. It is an equestrian farm where the main house provides bed/breakfast accommodation (www.redbarn-farm.co.uk). Attached to the house is separate self-contained accommodation and this was just ideal for us. It was lovely and clean with fresh bedding and towels. It had plenty of parking (right outside the door to the flat), its own entrance, a very nice refurbed shower room, a kitchen, lounge, and two bedrooms (a single and a double). Debbie, the owner, popped in and did a tidy up during the day whilst we were out. Although we went in June, it sometimes got chilly and there was no shortage of heating (central heating) or hot water.

Red Barn is an ideal location. Situated on the main Marlow Road, it is 5 minutes drive to the main street. Marlow Main Street has all you could wish for with bars, shops and a supermarket and many restaurants including the chains (Pizza Express, Zizzi’s, Slug & Lettuce). We researched this before we went and took some of the regular vouchers that are available for chain restaurants with us.

Legoland was about 20 minutes drive from Red Barn. We had a great two days there and I would well recommend it for the under 10’s. Luckily, we got two dry sunny days. I can’t think what there would have been to do in Legoland if it had rained because there are none to few indoor attractions. Tip: take your child’s swim things as there’s a large splash area in the middle of Legoland (not slides, but water jets, puddles, etc.). There are heaps of eating places in Legoland but, as per, very expensive poor quality food and service. The lego models are amazing.

Whilst staying at Red Barn, we also visited Windsor. We had a good day and did Windsor Castle and the Windsor Wheel. Again, heaps of eating places and fantastic shopping. We also visited Woburn Safari Park (about 45 minutes drive from Red Barn). Our 4 year old enjoyed this because there’s play areas, bouncy castles and boats and an indoor soft play with breathtaking slides. There’s a couple of eating places. On entry, you drive through the safari park (takes about an hour). There’s lots of animals but some of them remain quite far back from the car (unlike Longleet Safari). Afterwards, you can do a foot safari which our 4 year old loved because you really do get shoulder to shoulder with the animals. On a rainy afternoon, we visited The Discovery Centre (Bracknell) – indoor children’s science centre (like a small scale Eureka). This was ok for passing a few rainy hours but probably not the ultimate attraction to rush to if not in the area.

All in all we had a great 6 day break - stopped overnight at Kettering on the way down from Leeds to Red Barn Farm. We stayed in the Kettering Park Hotel because we knew that our 4 year old would like the pool. Brilliant hotel couldn’t fault it. We visited Wicksteed Park (5 minutes drive from the hotel). This is brilliant value given that it’s free to get in (pay for parking). It had a large well maintained play park, lots of fairground rides, and some bigger rides like speed go-karts, rollercoaster, water chute, a boating lake and a few eating places.

I would definitely recommend Red Barn Farm for a family trip to Legoland. Second to none in terms of value for money.

Stayed here from August through to November whilst studying at the Air Park (within walking distance of the farm). Throughout my 12 week stay the standard of service, cleanliness and food was faultless (how many hotels can you say that about?). Your hosts Debbie and Gary clearly pride themselves on attention to detail and making sure your stay is as pleasurable as possible. Debbie's breakfasts are amazing, the poached eggs (from the farm) are better than you would get in a five star hotel, cooked to perfection every time. Stay in the en suite if possible, the velux window over the double bed will give you a night under the stars, whilst wrapped in 13.5 togs of comfort.

This is a beautiful, spotless farmhouse B&B run by Gary and Debbie who were friendly, helpful and made sure we enjoyed our stay.

The double bedroom was very big, also had a sofa bed and a single bed. Beautiful bed linen, big soft fluffy towels and lots of attention to detail. Everything really clean and comfortable.

The courtyard was outside our room and we woke to the sound of horses calling across the yard to each other. There was plenty of parking in the yard by the stables, which were also spotless. We were staying for business so didn't have time to relax there but there is a swimming pool if you want to use it.

Breakfast was very varied, lots of choice and all freshly cooked and the eggs were from their own hens.

Would definitely stay here again, its in a nice quite location but close to all teh amenities and Gary gave us cards for local restaurants. The road outside the farm was very busy during rush hour but did not affect us at all.

My only tiny criticsim would be that there needs to be a full length mirror, or at least two mirrors. We were two women sharing a room with only one small mirror in the bathroom. Apart from that the stay was lovely and everyone was very friendly and you could not faulty the cleanliness at all
