  • "We really enjoyed our break at The Barn : it was nicely furnished, very clean and had everything we needed."

    The scones, jam and cream were a lovely surprise and much appreciated - also plenty of loo rolls ( a sign of generosity that many other places lack, weirdly ). There was some faint noise from next door but as it's a semi, that's to be allowed for : it wasn't excessive. I loved watching the birds on the feeders and around the property - such a wonderful, peaceful atmosphere. I suspect we'll be back...

    Many thanks for your feedback and we would be more than happy to welcome you back to Mill Pond Barns for another peaceful stay. We paid ourselves in cleanliness and keeping guests happy, so reading your feedback is very pleasing indeed. Many thanks, Natalie Property Owner

  • "We had a really lovely stay in the Barn."

    Kitchen was very well equipped and everything was provided for. The views of the pond were amazing and we loved the welcome gifts. That was a nice touch. Beds were comfy and the showers were great. Beautiful decor in the place too and everything was exceptionally clean. Overall, probably one of the best stays we’ve had (and we’ve had a lot). Would highly recommend.

    Thank you so very much for your exceptional feedback- it’s just what I like to hear, as we work very hard trying to make everyone’s stay here at Mill Pond Barns, one to remember! So Thank you ! Natalie Property Owner

    Thank you for your exceptional feedback, lovely to read it’s an “ideal setting” ! We like to think so too. Natalie Property Owner

  • "Lovely peaceful accommodation overlooking the pond ideal for watching the ducks, heron, woodpeckers and was delighted to see a kingfisher."

    The Barn was spotlessly clean and equipped with all you need on holiday even binoculars to view the birds. Would highly recommend and would certainly return in the future.

    Thank you so very much for your exceptional feedback, we love seeing the Kingfishers and so pleased they came out across the pond and shared that experience with you too. Our cleaners aim is to maintain a very high standard, so it’s very pleasing to read you felt it was reached ! Natalie Property Owner

  • "Excellent chalet in really secluded spot overlooking the small lake."

    We were just the 2 of us as next door were also just a couple. So we enjoyed the solitude. Just be aware that the 2 chalets are one wooden building, so noisy neighbours could be a disadvantage as highlighted by other reviews. Natalie was a gracious host and made us very welcome. Google maps and what3words put the chalets in the middle of the field opposite. ///edgy.scorched.porch/// on What3words will take you to the entrance gate.

    Superb feedback and we would like to thank you for popping in the what3words, which takes you to our entrance gates- it’s most helpful indeed! Great to hear you enjoyed your stay and hopefully the sound proofing we have added in Jan 2022 will help to soften any sounds from neighbours. Natalie Property Owner

  • "Comfortable, modern cottage with beautiful deck overlooking the lake."

    Slightly less space than we expected from the listing and the relatively high price compared to places we have stayed previously i.e. no family bathroom and living space smaller than it seemed from the photos. We think it should be made clearer from the listing that the cottage is one of two neighbouring properties that share the deck; also that the washing/drying facilities are shared with the neighbours. But we had a pleasant stay, thank you.

  • "Fabulous little hidden gem in beautiful surroundings."

    The perfect place to escape to for some peace and quiet. The barn was well equipped and very comfortable with beautiful furnishings. The welcome box was a lovely gesture. We had daily visits from the woodpecker and heron and the ducks became our friends courtesy of some duck food purchased from Jinney Ring craft centre (well worth a visit). All in all a lovely week and we were sad to leave. We would highly recommend the barn and hope to return soon.

    Debbie, it's so lovely to read that you enjoyed our Barns here in Worcestershire. We are lucky with the abundance of wildlife around our pond and also the the peace and quiet! Thank you very much for your feedback. Property Owner

  • "The pictures didn’t really do justice to the cottage."

    It could have been called “Birdsong” rather than “The Barn”, as it is the first thing you hear when you wake up and continues in the background all day. We’ve stayed in quality cottages before, and at others the main failing is very limited places to put your clothes. Here both bedrooms were well equipped for storage. The en-suites both had excellent rainfall showers, and the living/dining/kitchen area was well furnished including an Alexa and the TV bracket meant you could comfortably watch it from anywhere in the room. The deck is a wonderful place to unwind.

    Wonderful to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and it's great to hear all of your wonderful comments. We are thrilled you had catered for your every need. We hope you'll return one day for another holiday to Mill Pond Barns, Natalie. Property Owner

  • "Great place to relax and see the sights."

    Many attractions to see and also great local walks. Woodpeckers, Kingfishers, Herons, Birds of prey and lots of other birds just outside the patio to see everyday. Kitchen needs a smaller frying pan and everyday saucepans. Lovely hosts and a place to revisit in the future.

    Mr Wilson, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and great to hear you saw so much wildlife from The Barn. I will also ensure more everyday saucepans and a smaller frying pan is purchased for our next guests. Thank you so much for your much appreciated feedback. Natalie Property Owner

    The accommodation is beautifully designed and super comfortable. The view from the decking over the pond is glorious - the perfect place to sit with a glass of wine, watch the chickens and kingfishers, and listen to the blackbirds. We loved the photographs of this property, but the reality is even better I think.
