  • "The perfect place to stay for a week’s staycation especially as the weather wasn’t too kind to us."

    The Dutch Barn definitely had the WOW factor. We had everything we needed in a perfect setting. We had a lovely hamper of local products, including a bottle of wine and apple juice waiting for us on arrival. Jackie was there at the end of the phone if we needed her and even offered to let us stay an extra night in order to avoid travelling home with Storm Eunice causing havoc throughout the south where we had to travel to. Highly recommended.

    The barn is in such a great location to see animals which are right on your door step. There is so much to do in the area with lots of places to eat if you are too lazy to cook (which i was) . Jackie the hostess is so lovely if you need anything or need to know something you receive an answer straight away and she left a beautiful hamper for us all. The hot tub is an additional bonus at the end of a day to relax. Jackie thank you so much for sharing your beautiful accommodation. Good luck to you and your family in the future. Jackie

  • "I have no problems whatsoever with the Dutch Barn."

    My dissatisfaction is purely with Sykes and the way I was treated when my booking had to be changed because of Government restrictions due to COVID. There was no “give” at all …it was their way or the highway and if I decided to cancel “they would come after me for the balance of the deposit”. You wouldn’t allow me to change properties even though the rent for the Dutch Barn would be increased by OVER £700 to £1183 for the same week 12 months hence. This is just pure greed by Sykes who just see commission,commission commission!!!

  • "Beautiful barn conversion in beautiful surroundings."

    The owners are really friendly and have included some very thoughtful touches that make it extra special. Some great walks from the doorstep which leaflets are provided for. If you fancy a meal out we highly recommend the Stockton cross which is only a short walk away.

  • "We had a fantastic stay at the Dutch Barn over the October half term week with our four-year old and baby."

    The barn had everything we needed and more, with stunning views over the countryside and hot tub we used everyday. It was a great escape from everyday life. The hosts Jackie and Pete were so accommodating and our son loved looking round the farm to see the animals and apple harvesting. The surrounding area had so much to do, including local walks from the barn and day trips further afield. We’d definitely recommend to anyone, and look forward to coming back one day.

  • "The Dutch Barn was everything we could have asked for this family holiday!"

    The pictures just do not do it justice, we couldn’t believe it when we drove up the lane & saw the barn for the first time. By far the most amazing property we have stayed at, a very high standard throughout, well equipped and a fabulous welcome pack! There was plenty to do in the area, including walks from the doorstep, National Trust and a great pub within walking distance. Having two washrooms was a bonus, especially with the hot tub - which we loved! Just sitting out on the top deck with a book was enjoyable and the children spent the week playing in the garden with the badminton set. Being at the barn was so relaxing, would thoroughly recommend a week here!

  • "We had a lovely time staying at the Dutch Barn."

    It's really well decked out and we were made to feel so welcome when we arrived. You get fantastic views from inside and there are nice walks and places to cycle in the local area. The house itself had everything we needed, with a very well equipped kitchen, as well as lots of things you wouldn't expect like board games and laundry items which were an added extra. It's really special to be staying on a working farm and seeing the activity going on in the fields. The location is really well situated for visiting local sites and landmarks with a number of interesting towns and attractions nearby. Jackie was lovely and we really enjoyed the odd visit from one of the sheep-dogs.

About the location

LEOMINSTER

Hereford 12 miles; Ludlow 12 miles.

Leominster is located in the heart of the beautiful border countryside, where England and Wales nudge each other along Offa’s Dyke. Dating back to the 7th Century, the town of Leominster possesses some fine examples of architecture such as the Priory Church, along with a wide variety of shops, cafes and pubs, and is the ideal place in which to spend a lazy afternoon strolling around in pleasant surroundings. Nearby is the smaller market town of Tenbury Wells situated on the banks of the River Teme. Dating back to the Iron Age and said to have been called 'my little town in the orchard' by Queen Victoria, Tenbury Wells boasts a unique 18th century bridge built by Thomas Telford, the magnificent Pump Rooms, which housed baths where local mineral water was available, and many other listed buildings dating back to the 17th century. Close by are many National Trust properties including Croft Castle and Berrington Hall, plus the Judge's Lodgings in Presteigne, Stokesay Castle, the renowned Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and the Acton Scott Historic Working Farm are well worth a visit. Sample Herefordshire's famous cider or discover Hereford with it's fascinating Mappa Mundi world map and the captivating chained library, home to a collection of rare and ancient books while nearby Bromyard has an air of timelessness with many half-timbered buildings, helping visitors relax amongst a good range of pubs, restaurants and shops. The pretty medieval market town of Ludlow makes a great day out, with more than 500 listed buildings and a magnificent castle, and also within easy reach are Ironbridge and Hay-on-Wye. The magnificent Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons National Park and stunning Malvern Hills also make a great day out.
