Barwheys provides the perfect combination of 18th century charm and 21st century luxury. It was totally renovated in 2012 and has four buildings built around a courtyard – three houses providing beautiful en-suite accommodation and one ancient barn converted into a magnificent games hall, media centre and recreation area for guests to enjoy.

Each of the three houses has a dramatic kitchen fitted out with Leibherer fridges, NEFF ovens, hobs, dishwashers, and warming drawers. Each of the eight double or twin bedrooms has beautiful en suite facilities with slate and glass finishings and powerful showers.

Several stylish sitting rooms with open fires or wood burning stoves provide relaxation away from the main party whilst the galleried dining hall and Granary enable all 16 guests to gather together. All the buildings have sweeping views out over the fields and woods enabling our guests to absorb the peace and tranquillity of the area whilst enjoying long summer evenings on one of the terraces or winter nights in front of an open fire or wood burning stove.

Barwheys is situated in a spectacular rural setting in wider woodland, with acreage available by negotiation, depending on the new owners needs and plans.
