Flexible fun is the key at The Barns, with its accommodation permutations. Go for broke with a party for 40-48 friends and family
However you play it, The Barns in deepest Herefordshire adds up to a statement in lavish, luxurious lushness. Book in summer to enjoy the English lawns and verdant pastures. Book in winter and hope you get snowed in, so you never have to leave.
This is an opulent world of high beams, stone floors, homely throws and rugs. Get together, crank up the log fire, laugh and chat, drink and dine. The joy of The Barns lies in being together and the real luxury here is time.
Take a tipple in the courtyard garden under the parasol. There’s space here for children to race and play on a classic English lawn, and time to dine. Cook up a storm yourselves, fire up the barbie, or order up a chef and eat al fresco beneath big skies.
Luxury abounds here. The Barns seems hewn from the essence of Herefordshire itself. Built from local stone, this is a monument to tasteful, comfortable living deep within the rural dream.
With over 4500 sq feet of high-beamed, flagstoned opulence, The Old Byre and The Granary get everyone together in comfort and style. Read a book in front of the roaring logs, magic up a movie in the cinema room, pile into the hot tub. The luxury is laid on thick, but homeliness and heartiness live in every beam, throw and rug.
The Old Mill and The Hayloft weigh in at nearly 5300 sq feet. This is heavy hitting in the luxury stakes. Walls are exposed stone, floors are flagstone, beams are oak. Fire up the logburner, get a movie on, enjoy the wifi, get the cover off the hot-tub. We’ve laid on the luxury so you can enjoy the simple things.
The Stables is rich in natural textures. Interior walls are exposed local stone, floors are flagstone and pleasingly tactile to the toes when heated. Wooden beams are exposed and the woodburner’s ready for fireside tales and happy bookworms.
Major celebration or reunion? Book The Barns in its entirety. Enjoy the splendours of life with up to 35 guests. Ask us about catering, bring your own bottles and make merry with the people who matter most.
In the range kitchens, above the flagstone floors, on the granite worktops, nothing less than freshly baked bread and newly ground coffee seems appropriate. We can arrange both, or you can do your own thing entirely.
The range kitchen at The Old Mill is as sociable as it’s sizzling. Traditional country units and island in French blue give way to communal dining and space for couches and coffees. Just nod and we’ll fix the layout to fit your party.
It’s a similar cosy story in The Old Byre. Chop and chat in the country kitchen, dine together around farmhouse tables, then shimmy down for a coffee on the comfy couches in front of the flatscreen TV. Who needs any other rooms than the heart of the home?
From a party of 35 down to an extended family of 10, we can configure the Barns for serious fun. However you play it, all the bedrooms offer deep slumber between downy duvets and rich cotton sheets.
The Old Byre sleeps 10, with three King Size bedrooms and one quadruple room. If more decide to join the party then we can offer two extra Z-beds for an additional charge. Four bathrooms and ensuites make for mellow mornings or a languorous evening soak. Sleeping six, The Granary comes with three King Sized bedrooms and bathrooms to match.
The adjoining Granary sleeps six in three more doubles, all ensuite.
The delicious indulgence is laid on thick in The Old Mill, offering three Super King Size bedrooms with ensuites to match and one triple room, with an extra Z-bed for an additional price if needed. Luxurious and spacious, privacy and time rule here.
