1 bedroom barn in peaceful, rural location - Gloucestershire, England -
About Nicki Vizor
Married, and both my husband and I work from home. The Hen House is in the grounds of our property. . Having bought a house that needed modernising, and wanting to live on site, my husband was adament he could convert this former, uninspiring chicken shed into somewhere to live. We loved living in the hen house and everyone was amazed at how light and spacious it was, so we decided to rent it out for others to enjoy. We have enjoyed meeting people from all walks of life; artists, actors and musicians have all enjoyed the space, as well as walkers and those looking for a comfortable, peaceful retreat where they can lock the door and get away from it all.

Spent a very enjoyable week in the Hen House, which benefits from not just one friendly, generous and supportive “super host” but two: Nicki and Johnnie. The Hen House was sparkling clean, amazingly cosy, even on a cool wet night in November, peaceful and a great base from which to explore Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire (including several amazing churches and the very picturesque market towns of Ledbury and Newent). We were particularly impressed with the wood-burning stove and the extremely well-equipped kitchen area - in which some “serious” cooking is easily possible. Overall, a great place to stay.
Thanks for your generous comments, and we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay here.
What an amazing space!
The hosts are so friendly and welcoming it really makes you feel at home.
The Hen House is spacious, cosy and high quality.
You can shut yourselves away in this peaceful idle or throw the windows open and embrace nature!
We will be back again and again!
I almost dont want to tell anyone else so I can keep it a secret but cant stop telling everyone how fabulous it is!!!!! Sssshhhhh!!!!
Thank you for your lovely comments. So pleased you enjoyed your stay here, and hope to see you again in the future!
This Place is Great
We only for stopped for a couple of days, but this place doesnt dissappoint in any way shape or form.
Everything is perfect, the location, the property, the owners....everything is just perfect
The only regret we have is that we didnt stop longer
Thanks for your kind comments and so pleased you enjoyed your stay here
A DELIGHTFUL SHORT STAY
Generous and considerate hosts and a delightful, quiet and unusual property. Well situated for visiting the Malvern region, the Welsh borders, Forest of Dean and local cities. We will certainly book this again.
We so enjoyed meeting you both, and pleased you enjoyed your stay here. Hope to see you again in the future, you'd be very welcome.
Autumn in the Hen house
The hen house was an amazing place to stay, the photographs truly don't do it justice.
Inside it is quirky, bright and airy. Everything was as described, and we wanted for nothing.
Nickie and her husband are a lovely, friendly couple, but leave you alone to enjoy your holiday.
I would definitely recommend it as a place to stay. We've shown all of our family and friends our photos and would definitely stay again.
Thank you for your lovely comments and so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again in the future, you'd be most welcome.
The property is true to description on the site, it’s a really lovely converted barn, very comfortable and stylish. The setting is lovely, so calming with chickens, horses nearby and beautiful countryside. The hosts take care with the little extras such as home made bread and flapjacks among the provisions. The barn was scrupulously clean and everything needed was in place. Its situated kind of in between the Cotswolds and the Malvern hills so there is plenty nearby to enjoy. I can’t fault this place or the hosts and we would definitely book it again.
Thank you for such a lovely review and am so pleased you both enjoyed your stay here. Hope to see you again in the future.
