“Superb group accommodation!”
Reviewed 8 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed here for my best friend's hen do. There were 15 girls so the dorm style bedroom was perfect. The bunkhouse is situated in a stunning location. It was clean and the couple who run it could not have been more helpful. I will definitely be returning for family/friends get togethers in the future!

Thanks for your feedback Hattie. Obviously never good to hear any negative feedback.
We pay someone to come and completely clean the Barn between each guests so if there were any issues we would have liked to be told at the time so we could remedy.
Unfortunately flies and cobwebs are a symptom of the countryside and Swallows will come into the Barn as soon as the doors are open as it used to be their home.
We will check the beds and replace as required but had not had any other complaints.
We hope you will come back again. Julia & Graham

“Perfect property for a group of friends”
Reviewed 20 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A group of 17 friends stayed here for 2 nights for New Year's.

The property was exactly as described. The kitchen had enough space to store all of our food and cook everything, with 2 fridges and 2 freezers, and plenty of glasses and plates etc. The living area was a bit of a squeeze for the 17 of us. Although the bar is a great idea, there was not much room between the bar and the back wall! There were enough chairs for everyone to sit around the tables, but there were only 2 small sofas.

However, the bedroom made up for the lack of space in the living area. It was great, with chandeliers, a projector screen, and lots of fairy lights! It felt like being on Big Brother which was quite amusing for everyone!

There were separate bathrooms for boys and girls which suited us perfectly. There was only 1 shower in each bathroom but this wasn't a problem.

Graham was extremely helpful in answering questions before we arrived! There was plenty of parking space and the outside areas were lovely. It wasn't the cleanest property, but it was cheap and cheerful so you get what you pay for.

Overall we had a really fun couple of days and I would definitely recommend this property and return for another weekend!

“Perfect for a weekend getaway”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I stayed in this property for a reunion of friends, aged 24-30. It was a great setting for a weekend away. We had been worried that the barn may get cold at the end of October but with underfloor heating in the bedroom and a fireplace in the living area this was not a problem. Although there are other cottages joined to the barn, we were hardly aware that they were there. Julia and Graham were very helpful and friendly (as were their dogs!). Would definitely stay again.

“Best Stay We Could Ever Wished”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Graham was an incredible host. He was always available to help us when we had questions. He was very patient and helpful in helping us settle in when we first arrived. He also trusts his guests a lot which is very admirable.

The barn is also a perfect getaway from the city. It is super spacious, very close to nature and very well equipped. Cultery, utensils, cleaning materials were all well stocked, including toilet facilities (there was one male and one female toilet!). It is the ideal place for bonding time.

There is a grocery store 30 minutes away reachable by foot. Also train station is about 20 minutes away by taxi. Taxi in bedford is really affordable since 6 people only spent 8 pounds on a one-way trip!

Would love to be back again. Thank you Graham and Julia!

“Great group accommodation”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I stayed here from 31st july-2nd august with a group of ladies. Such an amazing place in the countryside. Perfect for a weekend away.
The bunkhouse was immaculate when we arrived. With everything we needed right there.
Graham and Julia have been amazing before our arrival and during if we needed. Couldn't have asked for better hosts.
Would definitely recommend this to others and would love to go back.
