Luxury Barn Conversion in a peaceful rural location. Sleeps 6 (plus cot) in three bedrooms.
The 17th century barn is set in a courtyard with the owners farmhouse on a working dairy farm. It has its own patio with table and chairs, and a shared garden with a small lake. The barn was converted to give a light modern space but still retains the character and beams. The slate floored entrance hall leads to three oak floored bedrooms and the main bathroom. There is underfloor heating throughout powered by a ground source heat pump which also heats the water. From the hall stairs lead to the first floor and the large vaulted open plan kitchen, dining and living space. Off the kitchen is a utility room contain the washing machine & tumble drier. Large windows allow light to pour into the barn making it a very airy space. Doors from the living area lead to a small balcony where you can sit and watch the cows in the paddock, or the rabbits playing, and watch the sun set over Garway Hill.

A beautifully renovated well equipt & comfortable property
Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our week at Yew Tree Barn. We chose this property because of the space, modern up to date facilities & beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. It lived up to our high expectations. The modern kitchen was well equipt & had all we needed for a week of self catering. (The Moon Inn provided lovely food for an evening off) Our bedrooms were very comfortable & tastefully decorated, & the bathrooms well appointed. The open plan living room gave us a spacious bright family area & the lounge was relaxing with lovely views. A glass of wine on the balcony finished the evenings off well with some amazing sunsets over Garway Hill. The family had a busy week with Go-Ape, canoeing on the Wye, clay pigeon shooting & cycling in the forrest. A lovely walk up Garway Hill & exploring Monmouth.
A great week enjoyed by all.
Outstanding luxury barn conversion in Garway, Herefordshire
We are a party of four adults (two couples) and we stayed at Yew Tree barn for a week in July 2017. The owners' farm is on site but does not intrude on your privacy at all; in fact Susan had left us some lovely goodies including ice cream made on the farm premises, delicious! Also home baked bread, apple juice and other treats.
The barn has three bedrooms (one ensuite) on the ground floor - everything was modern, spotless and comfortable. Fluffy towels, classy toiletries and comfy bedding made for some restful sleeps and snoozes.
Upstairs you have the lounge/dining/kitchen area with massive TV (there's wifi too), big leather sofas and a top quality modern kitchen with induction hob and everything you'll need - washing machine and tumble drier in a separate utility room. The barn is flooded with light and there's a covered balcony from which you can watch the sunset, cold drink in hand; lovely. Overall we'd give this property an easy 5 stars. The area has lots to do, the village of Garway boasts a cracking pub (yummy Sunday lunch) five minutes walk away, and we had a great time - this part of Britain is a hidden gem.
Spectacular accommodation great to be on a working farm and family very friendly
Nice to be on a working farm - wander around and see the new born calves - the first floor balcony is great to watch the sun set after a BBQ - family very friendly and a good location for touring the area
Thank you for your kind review, it's always good to hear that guests have enjoyed staying in the barn and meeting our gorgeous Guernsey calves.
A lovely property in a delightful setting
The barn is beautiful, comfortable and extremely well equipped.The surroundings are peaceful with a village and pub nearby. Plenty of walks, also the river Wye, castles and the towns of Ross and Monmouth.Friendly owners, excellent ice cream!Would love to visit again.
Maximum character with all mod cons.
fabulous holiday property, well appointed, clean and full of character but with every modern convenience inside and the local produce left for us was spot on. Lovely owners, very helpful but not intrusive. local pub within easy walking distance, with good food meant we didn't use the beautiful kitchen as often as we could have. Fantastic views from the property, lots of walking close by and plenty of interesting places and towns to visit. Would love to go back again.
