The living accommodation is spacious and comfortable and the whole barn has underfloor heating to keep the chill out on winter days. The garden is set out to lawns and a large patio herb garden where guests can spend the evenings having a barbeque and watching the sunset. Locally there is the village of Anstey with its' rich history from the medieval meadows to the Norman church with its 15c graffitti, there are also many local pubs that serve real ale and delicious food. Anstey is situated just 30 miles north of London and only 15 miles south of Cambridge and is ideal exploring the East of England, and is available for weekend or full week getaways with family or friends.
Andrew and Alice have been at Anstey Grove Barn for over 30 years, raising a family and running a farm in the heart of rural Hertfordshire. In 1980 they bought a working pig farm with 20 acres of land and began to build a family home. Within months the house was built, and within years a broadleaf wood was planted and wildflower meadow cultivated that have now come to be protected by the Hertfordshire Wildlife Trust. The working pig farm has now gone, but the wood, meadows, flock of free range hens and horses remain. In 2004 Alice and Andrew decided to convert the large Barn at the heart of the farm and create high quality bed and breakfast accommodation. Their intention has always been to provide a homely base from which families, couples and those just passing through can enjoy

We just got back from an amazing hen weekend at Anstey Grove Barn. The barn is absolutely beautiful - idyllic garden, 6 lovely bedrooms and great space for entertaining up to 12 people.
Andrew and Alice could not have been more lovely or helpful.
Would really recommend this for any get-together with friends or family. The barn is really close to Cambridge. We went punting in the day with Lets Go Punting which was good value and lots of fun. We also did a Life Drawing class in the afternoon in the garden which was a very fun hen do activity (I booked through info@lifem?odeloxfords?hire.co.uk and would definitely recommend).
We could have just stayed in the barn all weekend and been perfectly happy! Thanks to Andrew and Alice for helping make a great weekend.
A large group of us visited the barn for a hen in June, staying Friday to Sunday. The barn was clean and bea
We stayed at Anstey barn over Christmas as a large family party including children. The barn is spacious, clean and very welcoming. All the rooms are beautifully decorated, with ensuite bathrooms and lovely toiletries. The underfloor heating meant we were nice and warm at all times. Andrew was very helpful and close enough to call on if any problems arose, even being so good as to drop round some last minute Amazon purchases! The Christmas decorations were lovely and festive and all in all we had a lovely, relaxing time. The only slight negative is the limited mobile wifi which was limited to 18gb and could only support a few users at once. This is worth bearing in mind if you need to keep up with any work during your break as there is also limited reception. However it does mean you are forced to really get away from it all! I would recommend this place highly for large groups.
