“Wonderful atmospheric house with beautiful gardens”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We went as a group of 5 families. We had a ball! Long walks and bike rides in the day, games and partying by night. A great house for hide and seek or murder mystery games. Would definitely recommend to all.

“Great venue for a family celebration”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We booked Virginia Barn as a venue to celebrate my wife's birthday with our daughters and their partners. The place was perfect for our needs with the property well equipped for us, clean and well maintained. With plenty of communal space, a good time was had by all.
Definitely recommended.

“Highlight of our year”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My wife, daughter, and friends hire out Blo Norton Hall and the barns 3-4 times a year, and it's the highlight of our year. The setting could not be more beautiful, the house could not be more cozy or well-appointed. We always make sure that someone on the guest-list loves to cook, and the huge, modernised kitchen is put to good use. We come back fat, well-rested, and serene after a weekend's good company in a stately house straight out of a picturebook. The surrounding area is perfect for a ramble, and we love the Norman church, the working windmill, and the secret playground in the woods. We've been going for something like five years now, and every year the place gets lovelier.

“GREAT WEEKEND”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 for a stay in February 2013

The long weekend was to celebrate my Husband's big birthday so all family stayed in the main house. It was our second visit and it did not disappoint us. We had the log fires burning, played games - adult and children - and everybody said what an excellent time they had. The beds are comfy and the bathrooms are beautiful with lots of hot water. The fab kitchen is so well stocked with all pans and utensils that cooking for a great number was such a treat. A lovely pub is walkable where we had a delicious sunday roast. Blo Norton we will visit you again.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 1 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

A large group of us stayed here to celebrate our friends upcoming civil partnership and the place was absolutely amazing. A bunch of grown ups playing hide and seek on the Sunday morning before we left kind of sums the place up really.

I stayed in one of the barns with 3 others and it was beautiful. Really well appointed throughout and the living space was lovely with a huge log burner. Such nice touches left as a welcome as well with free ranges eggs, local marmalade and a lovely farmhouse loaf.

The main house was simply stunning. Huge rooms with massive open fires made sure the evenings were cosy and the kitchen was a big enough to accomodate all of us at the same time. I couldn't find a fault with anything a Blo Norton. A simply stunning house in a beautiful location made for a very memorable weekend shared with great friends.
