Previous visitors' comments about Bottomhouse Barn:
The property was just gorgeous & comfortable. The owners were lovely too and very helpful. They had left a birthday card and bottle of wine which was a lovely touch. The views were gorgeous, it was so peaceful and the hot tub was an added bonus. All in all it was a perfect birthday weekend away with the girls. Would highly recommend!
Mrs Curtis, Bedford, April 2013
The proprietor was very friendly and kindly provided us with a bottle of wine. He also offered to help us find things to do before we got there and gave us a really good showing round the barn before leaving us to it. The place was extremely clean and cosy and had a very nice atmosphere. Some people might be put off how many of the beds were in shared rooms but it wasn't a problem for us.

The barn was perfect, there were 11 of us celebrating my 40th birthday and we all thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. There was everything we needed, plenty of pans and crockery. The barn has been decorated to a high standard. Hoping to come back soon and would definitely recommend.

A perfect place for my 'low key' hen do, the hot tub was amazing, and the views from it even better. Felt very spoilt with my stay here, it's a luxurious place to stay. The owner was very helpful and friendly, already planning another visit!
