                                                                      Julie P.

                                                                      Set in beautiful grounds, the property has been tastefully decorated with no expense spared. Had everything a large party would need. We all loved the games room and the fabulous artic cabin. The George and Dragon pub is worth a stroll otherwise there is no need to leave this property. There is only one negative we all found and that is we all had to leave! Can't wait to come back

                                                                      An amazing home for larger groups

                                                                      Alex K.

The entire home is beautiful and there are lots of different areas so at no point to you feel crowded or cramped. The owners are also lovely and are on-hand to help at any moment. There was 19 of us for our party and there was space for more. Definitely recommend Beggars Barn.

                                                                      A house that wants for nothing

Luxurious accommodation that is made for socialising, with the arctic cabin in the garden being particularly popular. A return visit is definitely on the cards!

                                                                      Had a wonderful weekend at Beggars Barn for my daughters hen party. So lovely to stay in a house that actually has enough pots, pans, crockery etc to accommodate the number of people staying. The setting was totally perfect to have a fun weekend with pool party followed the next day by games day and afternoon tea. The house is totally gorgeous and even with 22 staying you could still find a quiet corner for a little nap!! We all had a wonderful time we feel we should have an annual get together!! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Comes highly recommended

Great location and the house catered for all or needs, a spacious well equipped kitchen with a table to accommodate all 21 of us! The rooms were spotless and provided thoughtful touches of items that make have been forgotten. We used a local caterer Wendy of Good Food Catering who served a delicious 3 course meal in the kitchen. The hot tub was a perfect addition to the house. Thank you to Camilla for sharing her home, the only downside was we had to leave!! Think we all would have liked to stay longer.
