Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you for a wonderful stay, both Andy and I had such a relaxing time in your 'Little Barn'. The whole experience was beautifully delivered from the accommodation to your tasty breakfasts. Even though we were only with you for three nights we have returned home fully charged. We will be back, hopefully very soon." June 2014

Rebecca Berzins

"Verity's Little Barn is tucked away besides her house in peaceful Orwell. It has been finished to an outstanding standard and was such a beautiful place to stay. Verity greeted us upon arrival, but then as the unit is self contained you can come and go with ease after that. A lovely breakfast basket was bought out in the morning at the time we asked. I would recommend the Little Barn to anyone." July 2014

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a long weekend and needed somewhere quiet and restful to stay close to Cambridge and Saffron Walden. The Little Barn was a delight... peaceful, lovely comfy bed, great shower and tasty breakfast brought over by Verity, who left us very much to ourselves but was most friendly and thoughtful. We highly recommend it.

Beautiful, stunning and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here and I would thoroughly recommend it for numerous reasons! It's clean, beautifully renovated, the bed was very comfortable and the icing on the cake was overlooking the pretty garden! Verity was helpful and recommended a lovely cafe called the orchard from there you can do a stunning 3 mile walk along the river into Cambridge! Overall it was a relaxing and memorable stay thank you

Cute Barn

  • 4 of 5

Little Barn is very sweet, it has been decorated beautifully with some lovely added touches, the bed and all bed linen is an excellent quality. Verity supplies tea, coffee, milk, juice and cereal as well as her continental breakfast which is delivered every morning and is delicious.

It's an ideal base for visiting Cambridge and the local pub is very friendly and serves excellent food.

The only downside is the lack of mobile and internet service which is being looked into, other than that a fantastic place to stay for a weekend break, I would love to come back in the summer and sit in the garden with a glass of wine!.

Chic not shabby

  • 4 of 5

Little Barn is in a lovely location on the edge of Orwell and close to the pub and village shop. Stylishly furnished and with a super breakfast provided, and a lovely garden to look out over, Little Barn is a little gem .... Certainly bijou but ideally placed.

Great little hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

A very welcoming host in Verity and a much needed relaxing space in the Barn. After a long journey to Cambridge and a long day packing up our daughter at Uni, this was perfect. Verity has thought of everything you may possibly need and much more. From toiletries, to plentiful supplies (milk, coffee, tea, juice, biscuits .......), even dressing gowns and sun hats! Bed was very comfortable and breakfast was plentiful. The bonus is the patio type doors which open out on to the garden which is a delight in itself. A short drive to Cambridge, perfect , if you are staying overnight on a visit to see your son/daughter at the university. We will most definately book again! Thank you!
