  • "My family and I had a wonderful stay at the Dutch barn."

    It is beautifully decorated, well thought-out and equipped with everything you could need. The hot tub is a great addition and enabled us to keep the boys busy on rainy days. The hot tub robes were also a nice touch. The accommodation is very comfortable with quality furnishings. The barn is on a working farm but we were not disturbed once. The owners live close by but respect your privacy but were equally very responsive and helpful if needed. We really enjoyed exploring the local area. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to castles and historic buildings. We particularly enjoyed Hereford Cathedral, the chain library and the Mappa Mundi are a must see. The cafe was also really good. Homemade quiches and fresh salads. We thoroughly enjoyed Ludlow castle (a well preserved ruin which seems a bit of contradiction) . We also paid a visit to Croft Castle which is more of a stately home and there’s not as much to do there on a wet day but we did enjoy the tour of the house. Not as great in terms of value for money as Ludlow or Hereford cathedral. For something different and despite not being cider drinkers we did the Weston’s Cider factory tour which was fab. Surprisingly Family friendly too. Nice cafe there. Finally we went to Monkland Dairy. We didn’t do the tour but the lady in the shop was lovely, let us sample their 6 cheeses and the cheese makers both came out and had a chat to our boys. They watched the machinery through a little viewing window . The cheeses are delicious! Great holiday, lovely setting and plenty of things to do.

    Thank you Jo to you and your family for choosing us for your staycation. We're so pleased despite the weather, that you explored the area and found lots to do. You left the barn so clean and tidy which is a welcome surprise when we go in to complete the changeover. Thanks again. Property Owner

  • "What a phenomenal place!"

    We loved being able to relax and unwind. The Dutch Barn is exceptionally comfortable, brilliantly equipped and has spectacular views from the upstairs living space. It is a beautifully airy, open place with a view from every window, either across the fields, over the orchard where the sheep graze or across to the hills in the distance. The spa hot tub was superbly looked after by Jackie. It was a pure delight to sit under the stars in the hot water and to just sit and chat. Every need was catered for in the Barn. We thoroughly enjoyed the welcome pack which featured local produce which was a lovely touch. The kitchen was very well thought out with condiments, cling film, foil, bags, clips, utensils all available for use. Overall, we will definitely be back. Truly one of the best places we have stayed in. Thank you so much for an incredible week.

    Thank you PJ and Anita, it was a pleasure to meet and host you, we're so pleased that you loved the barn as much as we do. If you've returned home feeling calm, relaxed and recharged your batteries, then our job is done. Most of all we want people to immerse themselves in the peace, quiet and beauty of the countryside and make it a memorable experience. Property Owner

    The conversation is amazing which combined with the comfort, cleanliness & facilities gives an opportunity to enjoy a carefree holiday of the highest standard. We loved every minute of our stay enjoying the views of the Herefordshire countryside & life on a working farm; the hot tub giving time to soak away the stresses; & the delightful September weather for our trips to the wealth of National Trust properties in the area, local cities, towns & villages. A holiday full of memories thanks to Jackie & Pete for sharing such a great home.

    The photos don’t prepare you for the fantastic feeling you get when you walk in. A perfect home from home with everything you could want for a relaxing holiday. We spent most evenings on the spacious balcony enjoying the peace and quiet. There are some great walks from the door, so you don’t need to get in the car. Members of the local golf club were friendly and welcoming. The local pub was a short walk away and has a lovely beer garden. Jackie and Peter couldn’t have done more to make our stay a perfect one. Thanks for the lovely welcome hamper and the beans! We enjoyed seeing them harvested and sharing the story ( and the beans) when we returned home.

    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!!!

About the location


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.
