We had such a wonderful break here. The accommodation itself is beautifully presented and very comfortable. Amanda our hostess was incredibly hospitable. There were so many welcoming touches including freshly laid eggs, bread, yoghurt and honey.

We stayed at Wellrose Barn in July 2017 and had a wonderful 10 days in a beautiful setting. The proprietors were very friendly and extremely helpful. We were particularly impressed on our arrival with the high quality welcome pack of food which was amazing. The accommodation was very clean and well stocked. All linen was changed midway through our stay, with more available on request.
We arrived back to the barn one evening to find the proprietors had kindly stored our bikes in a secure , dry location. They went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. We would definitely recommend Wellrose Barn and will be returning.
We booked a 3 night stay at Wellrose Barn to attend the Gamefair at nearby Hatfield House. It certainly exceeded our expectations, the fixtures and fittings were of a very high standard, and tastefully decorated. There were plenty of extra items in the kitchen area to make the stay a real home from home. It was spotless clean and a really nice welcome on arrival for us and our two dogs. We'll definitely be returning just hope we can get in! It is a great place to stay with dogs as they were made to feel very welcome and the countryside around the Barn allowed excellent walking in beautiful surroundings.
Looking for a base for a long country weekend we were delighted with the stylish character of Wellrose Barn and the very English picturesque countryside that surrounds it. As a professional couple with a dog we found that the facilities of the Barn were extremely suitable.The owner, Amanda was very warm in her welcome and she continued to be accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. Although stated as "self-catering" the breakfast groceries provided - bread, milk, eggs, jam, fruit juice, tea and coffee were a pleasant and welcome surprise and much more generous than the tea bags/coffee sachets that are so often all that's to be found in the kitchens of holiday accommodation. The under-cover off street parking is a valuable feature of the Barn; several pretty villages with general stores and traditional pubs are within a couple of miles, and beautiful country walks through woodland or across arable farmland start right outside the gate. Furnishings in the apartment are stylish, modern and of good quality and the mattress is quite superb for a good night's rest. We had a very good break at Wellrose Barn, can highly recommend it and we hope to visit again soon.
Looking to stay close to the gardens of Henry Moore Foundation, we booked for two nights Wellrose Barn, advertised on their own website as "Self-catering Bed&Breakfast for two", and stating "Kitchen area equipped with fridge stocked for a continental breakfast".
The "provisions" provided, for the 2 breakfasts for 2 persons, comprised goods from various supermarkets and consisted of half a loaf of brown bread (prepacked, not from a bakery, with a “sale by date” running out before our end of stay!), a portion of butter, jams (which were already open), 4 small eggs (also from a supermarket), 2 pints of milk and a small bottle of mixed fruit juice from Aldi.
The studio above a carport, has low roof eaves, reducing the usable space. The kitchen area is not well thought out, and is a very small space with a 2 ring hob and microwave (stuck in a low cupboard), compromising very much the amount of preparation which can be done. No soap or washing up liquid were provided, which again was not practical and demonstrates the lack of attention from the owner.
The space is very much compromised from the kitchen area to the seating area with a tiny dining table (although sufficient for the breakfast provided!).
The views from the roof windows are very restricted by the tall hedgerow blocking the views on one side, and non-existent on the other side due to the woodland opposite the road.
Close to Stansted airport, the planes and their noise are very much a feature of the area. The countryside is intensively cultivated, with footpaths running along hedgerows of trees limiting the views to the fields you walk in.
Overall, Wellrose Barn is overpriced for the breakfast provided and too small to be a comfortable self-catering alternative
Lovely looking place with a cosy feel to the barn in a peaceful area. Fully equipped with kitchen utensils, double toaster, 2 hot plates, microwave and small fridge. Double bed was comfy and tv picked up almost all Freeview channels which was helpful in keeping the kids quiet with cartoons. Heater kept the barn warm all night. Lovely decor and well kept all-round.
Issues we had were as follows. Hot water for the shower ran out, hot water tank size good for 2 adults (not 4 ppl)... although later found out the owner was unplugging the hot water cylinder/boiler each day so it could not heat up as needed. Very tight indeed!! Security gate had some issues and would not open on 2 occasions. I had to phone the owner, who told me she had locked the gate by accident at 9:15pm. Not what we needed when returning from a long day after a funeral. 2nd time the gate was broken and did not open at all. I had to park my car outside and climb through a gap in the hedge in the pouring rain. Not ideal! Another reviewer appears to have had hot water issues too. Work on getting this right and the barn will be near perfect.
