My wife and I had our wedding here in this beautiful venue. Penny and Claire were great at every point, they made the organisation very easy. Us and our family/friends were able to stay on both the Friday and Saturday nights meaning we had more time to catch up with them. Everyone who stayed loved their apartments and use of the pool/sauna/gym. We would not hesitate to recommend The Victorian Barn for either a wedding or for a weekend/week away. We definitely plan to go back at some point in the near future.

we wanted somewhere where 13 family members could celebrate a diamond wedding anniversary. Jasmine and Plumtree cottages, at the The Victorian Barn were ideal, clean spacious with plenty of amenities to keep us all occupied. a few of the guys went fishing on the lakes and thoroughly enjoyed a long and educational chat with the baliff. while the rest of us went out to a local craft show. we made full use of the games room, sauna, hot tibs and swimming pool as well as a local walk.
the staff were really helpful from the initial inquiry to our departure. a really nice touch was some bubbly and a card for our parents.
we had a range of ages staying from 7 -84 and it was enjoyed by all.

If you like travel lodge look no further. This place has fab facilties but the decor inside the houses is decidedly average with no style or creativity at all. Hot tubs are placed right outside the door with no privacy from passing residents. What a shame when one is in the most beautiful setting and its surrounding countryside. Nevertheless, lovely play equipment, inside pool and gym area may save the day.

We had a lovely week in Beatrice House, very clean, great hot tub. 2 of the bedrooms have very sloped ceilings which can be a bit tricky if you are tall.
The swimming pool was a good size and a great bonus for our granddaughter. There was also a sauna, games room and play area. ( a couple of things could do with updating, other than that great)
Worth bearing in mind this is a very rural location and is accessed through a lot of lanes so travel time to places does take a little longer.
Would definitely recommend.
