The perfect home for two families to share. A wonderful, large open plan kitchen/diner was the heart of the property whilst the kids loved the table tennis table. The owners offered a warm welcome then left us to enjoy ourselves. Walks from the door and attractions within easy striking distance.
Didn't we have a lovely time...

My husband and I were both 65 this year and instead of having a party we decided to book somewhere where all the family could join with us for a holiday. So we found Farm House Barn in abbey Dore. It was wonderful. The area was stunningly beautiful; the bedrooms were a good size; the bathrooms were excellent; the kitchen/dining room was very well kitted out and what we liked was the fact that all 10 of us could sit round the large dining table to have our meals. There were two lounges - one with a wood burner which was very cosy. The underfloor heating kept us all nice and warm and best of all we didn't have any extra charges for heating etc; the games room kept the younger children amused (and the adults too!). I would recommend it and our family are talking about recommending it to their friends too...
great place for family holidays

Lovely place, excellent facilities in a beautiful area. Very suitable for family groups with its layout. Facilities for children excellent with toys and books a plenty. Not so easy for pram or buggy access though. It would have been easier if all the exterior doors were able to be opened for access. It was immaculately clean. Owners are extremely helpful, very welcoming and living close by.
Fantastic Holiday Let

This is a great property, very spacious and full of character. It has all the amenities you need and it's very peaceful.. Ideal for larger group/family holidays. The surrounding area is good for sight seeing. Would come back again sometime.

We stayed at Farmhouse Barn for the week of the Hay Festival. This was the best of the properties we have used for this purpose over the course of several years. Sparklingly clean, beautifully adapted and with the friendliest of owners it made for an excellent stay for our group of eight friends.

Lovely barn conversion scenic area

Barn equipped to a high standard, but there were a lot of stairs you have to be quite fit, owners most welcoming. Could have done with mirrors in the bathrooms and a bit more lighting in the dining area but these are only minor faults.
Beautiful Barn Conversion, very well thought-out

We stayed in May 2010, a group of old university friends (and one baby). The barn conversion has been done very well, with real thought put into how such a large group might use the space; so there is a massive dining table inside and out, two lounges each with a television and a very large farmhouse kitchen and 3 bathrooms. Also each of the bedrooms is well separated from the others. This allows for different activities to go on without affecting everybody and, although we had fabulous weather, there is more than enough within the barn to allow for rainy days. Highly recommended.
