Description

Heavily beamed, impressive Grade II listed, cruck-beamed barn, suitable for larger groups of family or friends, Symonds Yat and Forest of Dean neaby.

With its six en-suite bedrooms, this heavily beamed, impressive Grade II listed, cruck-beamed barn stands tucked away in tranquil meadows, on the owners’ 200-acre farm. The barn enjoys magnificent views over the surrounding countryside towards the Forest of Dean. The medieval cruck-beamed wing, open to full height, was built in the 15th century and now makes up the living area with gallery. The heavily beamed 16th-century wing has been thoughtfully restored to provide comfortable en-suite accommodation. The barn is particularly suitable for family holidays and reunions, and the dining area is perfect for entertaining. There is a large mature garden where seating is provided in quiet spots to fully appreciate the views and bird life. Colourful trees and shrubs lead the way to a 1-acre games lawn where croquet, garden skittles and children’s swings can be enjoyed. There are walks from the door in this area of Great Landscape Value.

    Nice cottage, very roomy, comfortable and well equipped; with a beautiful garden and lovely views. Access from the main road was excellent by car, and the location was very peaceful, which made for a great location from which to explore the local area. The only issues were: a lot of flies coming in to the house (not sure what to suggest about this), the broadband was very slow / unreliable (please consider upgrading to fibre-to-the-premises!), and please consider getting some padded garden furniture!

    We had a lovely time in this comfortable and extremely well equipped Barn. The owners are friendly and welcoming. The beautiful garden was enjoyed by all and although we did have some rain we managed several games of croquet. Good patio area with plenty of seating for our alfresco dining. Comfortable beds and plenty of hot water for showers. We would thoroughly recommend staying here.

    Simple basics missing, like sauces mustards etc. The welcome pack included 4 tea bags and a few single packets you’d expect in a basic cafe. It did include a packet of shortbread biscuits. The heating was on timed and no option to turn on as and when required. At 18:30 it hadn’t come on, and we enquired as to why, and was told it would come on shortly. Which was 19:00. This is unacceptable. Also the owner came into the garden on two days, with a friend and dog or dogs and spent the time gardening, even when we’re in the house. This made it uncomfortable for us to go in the garden. The power went off in one area, which was caused by a mouse biting through a mains cable. This was not a problem, as can happen in any place. All in all, although we liked the house and we enjoyed it, but I wouldn’t go again and we never book a house or cottage next to the owners.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We always try to do our best to make guests comfortable and feedback is welcome. We are sorry the guest was not happy during his stay. The one acre garden is an asset, and needs attention occasionally, weather dependant, never before 10am or after 4pm and usually when guests have gone out sight seeing. We never visit the large area in front of the barn for privacy reasons. On this occasion our guest was made aware on arrival that we hoped to do some work in the garden. We would have stopped if asked. The guests went out midmorning and gardening took place far away in the trees, so we could be noticed as little as possible. If guests are present or have returned, we do not allow the dog to join us and take it home straight away. Out of politeness we never garden when guests are sitting outside or playing games on the lawn. Having owners nearby at hand to help can be useful. The central heating stopped overnight towards the end of the week stay. An electrician sorted the problem at 10 am the next morning and we were able to lock up the property when he had finished, allowing our guests to go exploring as they had planned. Fortunately the weather had been very warm and sunny. If guests request extra timed heating, we can always arrange it. Please be assured that Meadow barn is a lovely place to stay as endorsed by other guests who have stayed there.

    Well-equipped (except for kitchen roll and cling film) and an ideal layout for a large gathering.

    A great place for our reunion. Lots of space, excellent kitchen and comfortable bedrooms. We used the downstairs sitting area for pre dinner drinks and the mezzanine sitting room for after dinner relaxation!

    We were a group of 13 friends who enjoy walking and the house was ideal for us. Lots of space, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen with 2 fridges, plus a croquet lawn and lovely views. Mr & Mrs P put the heating on for us morning and night which made it very cosy. The only thing I would suggest needs improvement is the very slow Wi-Fi. Fabulous house for a large group, and only 2 miles to the Garway Moon Inn which does delicious food.

    This cottage is ideal for a family holiday. The separate bedrooms are self-contained whilst the kitchen/dining/ living room facilities are exceptionally good communal areas. One sometimes says "too many cooks spoil the broth" but this would not be the case in the kitchen for there is plenty of room and equipment for two or even more people to cater. The bookshelves contain many good books whilst there is plenty of information about the places to visit in the area. I found the beds somewhat soft for ideal comfort but the bedrooms were pleasant, cosy and with character. Outside the gardens are very pleasant with plenty of room to play games. A croquet lawn and equipment was available and there was bbq equipment with tables and chairs for outdoor activities. Staying at this location was peaceful and pleasant even on bank holiday and the countryside was beautiful with many small roads to explore in the Hereford countryside where there are many sights to see especially if you like castles.
