Groves Barn has been converted to a high standard.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 night stay. Overall the barn was well equipped but it would have been nice to have had some spare towels and tea towels....we only had the one tea towel which had to be used multiple times as there were 8 of us. Our toilet seat was broken and the plate rack, beams and lights were full of cobwebs.

The barn is in an idyllic position surrounded by fields and all the bedrooms were of a good size. I would have no hesitation in booking this barn again and the small negatives were far outweighed by the positives.

Gorgeous spacious property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a surprise for a milestone birthday. There were 8 adults and 2 toddlers and at no point did we feel on top of each other due to the copious amount of space. We had all the amenities we could wish for and the location was excellent. This barn really helped make our weekend extra special. The owners were really quick to respond to any questions we had leading up to our stay and couldn’t have done more for us. We would recommend anyone to stay here!

Stunning Barn Conversion in the most beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

Seven of my friends and I stayed at this wonderful property for the weekend celebrating a landmark birthday. The property could not have been any better. Andrew our host was excellent. Groves Barn was so well appointed with a kitchen that had absolutely everything you could want. The horses at the Equestrian Centre were the icing on the cake and we all had just the best weekend possible. Thank you to Andrew and Clare. Groves Barn is quite simply -stunning!

Beautiful barn!

  • 5 of 5

Groves Barn is possibly THE best place we’ve stayed in!! Gorgeous converted barn which caters for everyone. We were a party of 4 families and the children were more than happy with the on site play area and the fully equipped kitchen was a god send! We couldn’t of asked for much more. We’ll definitely be back!
