Stayed after a wedding reception and was blown away; wonderful service, a beautiful room and excellent food. You couldn't ask for more welcoming hosts either.

All in all an absolute treat.

Upper Barns is great for an overnight stay, I would have liked to have stayed longer. It's a lovely barn conversion in pretty gardens, on the edge of the village but in a very quiet location with private parking. Our room was very clean and fresh, country style and very comfortable, with tea-making, TV etc. We had a private bathroom just next door, so lots of space. Breakfat was excellent with cereals and fresh fruit salad, jugs of juice (not just a teeny glass), and then a full English with endless tea/coffee & toast. Diana and Ashley are lovely welcoming hosts, and if you like your art then you might like to buy one of Ashley's paintings while you're there. Excellent value for money.

We were attending a wedding at Spains Hall down the road, so needed a reasonable B+B that wasn't too far away for a taxi home (which are EXPENSIVE - book in advance)

The barns are lovely, set back off the road so nice and quiet, set in pretty gardens.

Our room was perfect, with lots of tea and milk (I like my tea). The room had a 4-poster, which I was concerned would be 'chintzy' as they normally are, but it was tasteful and clean - as was the whole place. We also had a great view of the gardens and butterflies, but still felt a nice private room.

Breakfast: wow! perfect, excellent quality and seconds on toast if I could have managed it but was too full!

I'd definately recommend it, especially for weddings nearby. It's very reasonable; I've paid more and got less in the past, and the bonus was that we were given a key for the front door so didn't feel bad arriving back late.

Lastly, we both said Diana was exactly the sort of person who should be running a B+B, homely, welcoming, yet professional! (Diana thanks for everything!)

  • Liked — The breakfast
  • Disliked — 2 other guests talking loudly at breakfast didn't help hangover, luck of the draw!
