This detached barn conversion is set on a 28 acre smallholding on the outskirts of Abbey Dore village, and can accommodate up to ten people in its five bedrooms.

A perfect family holiday retreat, this detached Grade II listed barn conversion has all the ingredients for a relaxing and memorable stay. The character and quality of the property are undeniable, from exposed oak beams to trusses and wall-timbers, juxtaposed perfectly with modern furnishings and conveniences. Enjoy some friendly family rivalry in the games room, picnic in the shared 0.25 acre paddock, wine and dine in the impressive kitchen/diner or relax by the woodburner in the snug. Set on the owner’s 28 acre smallholding 3.5 miles from Abbey Dore village, the property enjoys views over the stunning Herefordshire countryside.


Farm House Barn had good social spaces and was of high quality. The bike storage is a bonus and having two lounges and a games room made life easier where you have different interests.

A stunning property surrounded by beautiful countryside. There was plenty of space for everyone to enjoy the different rooms, particularly the hub of the property - the open plan kitchen and dining area which has been sensitively restored to create a very sociable property, perfect for celebrating with a group of friends or family. It is very well equipped and the owners are incredibly helpful. This location enables complete relaxation without the distractions of daily life! Perfect if you want to get that "wow" factor when you walk in and to relax.
Miss Sznerch

I can't rate this property enough! It was beautiful and just perfect for our family get away. The owners were just so very helpful. Nothing was a bother and it was lovely to meet them. The barn was furnished to a high standard and the cooking equipment was spot on, a lot of thought has gone in to planning, organising and maintaining the barn. I am so chuffed with our choice and would love to stay again.
Miss Threlfall

Fantastic place for a big family gathering. Beautiful scenery and walks on the doorstep. Really well equipped barn, we did not need to get any extras even though we came with babies. We would love to come back to explore the area some more.
Mr Smith

Stayed for a week with 10 family members and this barn was perfect. You have a large kitchen and dinning room, 2 living rooms and plenty of bedrooms. D?cor is plain and calming and all the space as not to crowd everyone. Location is great for getting away from the crowd and is in walking distance to a cider farm. This place is great for exploring Herefordshire and Wales. The only downside is the outside seating area, this could do with being improved with either slabs or decking, so that you are not walking on gravel. This barn is not suited to people with walking difficulties due to the different floor levels and the WiFI is very poor, but that is not a bad thing.
