Converted Barn in Buntingford, 6 bedroom all en-suite ideal for group get togethers and holidays
About Andrew Marchant
Andrew and Alice have been at Anstey Grove Barn for over 30 years, raising a family and running a farm in the heart of rural Hertfordshire. In 1980 they bought a working pig farm with 20 acres of land and began to build a family home. Within months the house was built, and within years a broadleaf wood was planted and wildflower meadow cultivated that have now come to be protected by the Hertfordshire Wildlife Trust. The working pig farm has now gone, but the wood, meadows, flock of free range hens and horses remain. In 2004 Alice and Andrew decided to convert the large Barn at the heart of the farm and create high quality bed and breakfast accommodation. Their intention has always been to provide a homely base from which families, couples and those just passing through can enjoy

Beautiful Barn, great for groups
12 of us stayed in the Barn for a uni friends meet up. Coming from London, Bedford and Cambridge the Barn feels far more rural than the 30 minute travel time would suggest! Set in rolling countryside, The Barn is really well set up . 6 bedrooms, all with en-suite and a downstairs toilet means there's no scramble for the showers in the morning. The communal area is large, and it's great to be able to share space while not necessarily all doing the same thing (e.g reading on the sofas while using the table to play games). The kitchen is well equipped too, and plenty of surface space meant we could prepare meals for all of us with ease. And the weather held for a BBQ in the garden too. Thanks for a great weekend!
Really lovely stay, Andrew was really helpful and friendly. Strongly recommend. Bedrooms all v nice and ensuiteso ideal for groups of friends
Memorable family Christmas
A stunning and very well designed barn conversion which facilitated a great occasion for our large family. The fixtures of the ensuite bedrooms were of the highest quality, and the living area was impressive, warm and festively decorated. The huge oven and very well stocked kitchen took the strain out of cooking the Xmas dinner!
Andrew, the host, was welcoming and helpful.
Every bedroom ensuite - excellent stay
Stayed sunny July 2018. Lovely private gardens and lawn for children to play on while we had our BBQ and Pimms in the shady patio area.
What sets this house apart from most on the market is that every bedroom is ensuite, making it perfect for a group of friends or multiple families. Shower water pressure and temperature is excellent.
The barn has modern bathrooms and simply and beautifully decorated bedrooms. Beds are comfortable, and linens all high quality.
The owners are really lovely people and were just round the corner if we needed anything.
It’s in peaceful countryside surrounded by fields and many country pubs just a short distance away. And a big plus for me - Ocado deliver here! Excellent stay.
Absolutely beautiful property
Owner couldn't have been more helpful
The property was great, lovely rooms and Andrew was very helpful. We had a problem with lack of catering dishes in the kitchen, we like to cook and if the house caters for 12, there was only 10 of us and we struggled for large dishes
