“Just as good 2nd time around!”
Reviewed 13 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed here last year (2015) and loved it so much we came back for more (2016). Once again John and Gill made every effort to make our stay as comfortable and easy as possible with essentials in the fridge and loads of wonderful little extra touches. This is more like staying with friends than in rented accommodation. On our first trip it was just my eldest son and myself. This time it was the whole family. John is such an amazing host that he remembered that our youngest son loves Thomas The Tank Engine, so John went out and bought a Thomas train track set for our youngster to play with when we were at the property.
So with the kindness and consideration shown by the owners, the extraordinary cleanliness, the great location and the bucket loads of character and charm, this place really can not be beaten!
Thanks again John and Gill. We'll be back (again and again).

“A very cosy cottage to stay”
Reviewed 29 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

My female colleague stayed with a group of five girls aged fifteen at the cottage. They were very pleased with their stay as everything was provided for a self-catering basis. In about five minutes the students could reach TESCO on foot.
The cottage is spacious and cosy and is located in the charming town of Old Amersham, near Amersham on the Hill. By means of buses you can reach Beaconsfield and High Wycombe easily.
The landlord of the cottage, who lives near by, was very helpful whenever advice was needed.

“Perfect home from home.”

I stayed at The Old Barn in April 2015 with my 6 year old son whilst we were in country from Australia visiting UK family that live in the Bucks area.

Everything about The Old Barn was perfect. From dealing with John and Gill, through to the delightful accommodation itself. Fantastic touches included all of the essentials in the fridge saving us that urgent supermarket dash on arrival. Our wonderful hosts even left us some chocolates as it was Easter during our stay. The place is spotless and welcoming. Night time temperatures outside were cold during our stay but the Old Barn was toastie and welcoming. Plenty of space, and heaps of entertainment including full Sky package and even a games system meant that our rest time was like being in our own home. The location is perfect, so close to the beautiful Old Town yet tucked away peacefully away from any roads.

This was a superb stay. I can't think of a single criticism. We will be back every year having found this gem.

Highly recommend.

“Little gem in Old Amersham”
Reviewed 3 December 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Great place to stay, right in the centre of Old Amersham, convenient for all amenities. The Old Barn is well equipped, very comfortable, tastefully appointed, so comfortable, all the facilities you need for a great relaxing home away from home. John and Gill do everything possible to ensure your stay is a great one. Thank you both for all your help, you are wonderful hosts. In our opinion you won't get disappointed in your stay. Own parking space too, always a great plus in the centre of town in a quiet private road.
