"Fantastic family weekend... lovely accommodation!!"
Our weekend break was booked as a family get together to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. There were 3 families - ourselves with two grown-up children; sister and brother-in-law with 2yr old twins and our niece and her husband. We looked for large self-catering properties that could accommodate 10-11 people. Church Farm Barns was exactly what we wanted and needed and good value for money.
Like a few before me, I was a little concerned about the negative comments from a few people, but there was nothing to worry about. We were more than happy with Church Farm Barns.
The Barns themselves are centrally located and very easy to find with or without a sat-nav. We travelled from Wolverhampton and arrived in around 70 minutes. Very well placed for a 20-30 minute walk/stroll into the beautiful town centre (our niece is pregnant so we strolled), but near enough to the main road should you wish to drive or take public transport. Also near to the local pub.
The barn was well presented with the huge lounge being the heart of the home. Comfortable ecletic arrangement of furniture and decoration making the lounge warm and welcoming - our favourite room!! The dining room has a huge dining table right next to the kitchen. The kitchen is well stocked with enough utensils; crockery; glasses and cutlery to have a huge dinner party - which we did on the Saturday night.
Infact the profesional chef who came to the house to cook for us (agreed with owners first) was suitably impressed with the kitchen layout and produced a wonderful birthday meal for my husband. She found everything she needed - very clean and tidy - everything you could ask for.
Layout of the house was nicely thought out. There were good sized bedrooms located on both ground and first floors. There were a couple of decorative issues in one of the upstairs twin bedrooms (holes in the wall??) and the TV was missing in the double room (ground floor) but we don't watch tv in bed so no harm done. All double rooms boasted huge comfortable beds (good mattresses) and a great nights sleep was had by everyone. The twins were too excited to sleep and ended up in their parent's bed but the older children shared the downstairs twin room and they were comfortable too. Lovely clean rooms/bathrooms with clean towels and enough space to be peaceful if needed.
No problems at all. Parking was great for one 4x4 and two smaller family cars. Utility charges were acceptable. We didn't use the hot-tub. Minty is a lovely housekeeper and very friendly. Her knowledge of the area is fantastic.
We would use Church Farm Barns again if we were travelling to Stratford for a family get together.

"Special venue for a family weekend get together"
Visited Church Farm Barns for a family get together of 8 adults and 2 children.
The arrangement of the rooms was ideal for us. Plenty of space in the lounge to socialize and plenty of seating in the dining room, even with the highchair that was provided.
Perfect location, near Ann Hathaway's cottage. A welcoming pub in the village. Also able to walk into Stratford along a well marked trail.
