Barns Hotel has a "tranquil location on the outskirts of Bedford" (The AA) and is beside the River Great Ouse.
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 both road and foot safaris. Both are 25 minutes' drive away.
Famous for being the headquarters of the British codebreakers during World War II, and the site where Alan Turing helped decipher the Enigma code, Bletchley Park is 30 minutes' drive away. Grade I-listed Houghton House is less than 20 minutes' drive away -- this ruined mansion house 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 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.
