Overview

The Barns Hotel is in a "tranquil" (The AA) location beside the River Great Ouse, on the outskirts of Bedford.

Local attractions include Woburn Abbey, a Grade I-listed country house surrounded by historic landscaped gardens and a deer park, and Woburn Safari Park, which has over 1000 animals and offers road and foot safaris. Both are 25 minutes' drive away.

Bletchley Park, famous for being the headquarters of the British codebreakers during World War II, and the site where Alan Turing helped decipher the Enigma code, is 30 minutes' drive away. Grade I-listed Houghton House is less than 20 minutes' drive away -- this ruined mansion has views of the surrounding hunting park and gardens.

The hotel's river-facing WineGlass Restaurant features rustic wooden beams and, as the name suggests, an extensive selection of wines and champagnes available by the glass -- some come from the owners' winery in California. There is also a charming library area within the restaurant. The Riverside Bar, open from lunchtime to late evening, offers casual dining and has a patio overlooking the River Great Ouse. The recently refurbished terrace now has a pizza oven, and fresh pizzas are available every Tuesday and Friday.

The hotel's electric riverboat is available to hire for cruises up the River Great Ouse.

Bedrooms and suites are traditionally furnished and have spacious bathrooms. All have free Wi-Fi.

We have been to the Barns Hotel several times, and always had a great stay. I liked the new menu, on which you were not restricted to the set menu only. 25 pounds dinner allocation per person. Plus the breakfast was fresher , with more choice.

We enjoyed the whole stay, and had a lovely walk in the nearby Priory Country Park. Afternoon tea was a real plus. We went into Bedford to eat, but could well eat 'in house' on another occasion.

Lovely setting, and nice grounds.

Afternoon tea was lovely. The setting on the river was quiet and picturesque. Breakfast had really nice touches like mini smoothies and it was generally an excellent range of options.

There was a wedding so it was quite noisy overnight but very comfortable bed.
