Why We Love This Hotel

  • Bletchley Park, the headquarters of the British codebreakers during World War II, is less than 30 minutes' drive away
  • The hotel's WineGlass Restaurant features an extensive selection of wines and champagnes
  • Woburn Abbey, a Grade I-listed country house, and Woburn Safari Park are both 25 minutes' drive away
  • The riverside hotel has a characterful 13th-century Tithe Barn 

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. 

You can take a leisurely stroll through the gardens and admire three centuries of landscape design at Grade-I listed Wrest Park -- this country house is 25 minutes from the hotel by car.

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 terrace has a pizza oven, and fresh pizzas are available every Tuesday and Friday throughout the summer.

In summer, you can hire the hotel's electric riverboat for cruises up the River Great Ouse. The hotel is a popular venue for wedding parties.

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

Glad that our stay was a "special offer". Would not like to have paid full rate with the "Premier Inn" type buffet breakfast and the same Dinner menu each night of the week. Went for the rib-eye steak and that was a mistake - poor quality and fatty. The so called "Hand Cut" Chips were a joke - just great big soggy chunks of potato - who cares if they are "Hand Cut" , it doesn't make them any more special. All in all, we did not think that Breakfast and Dinner met with the impression that the Management are trying to create with their high prices - that this is an expensive and exclusive establishment.
