I recently stayed at Wellrose barn for a couple of nights with my two young children. Our stay was perfect and the owner had thought of everything, even with two little ones in tow.
A travel cot was provided and we had fresh bread for the morning, along with milk, orange juice and many other store cupboard essentials. The wi-fi was very quick and the children loved the fact that there was a DVD player to keep them amused for a while before bed time.
The decor is lovely and very homely with a really fresh, clean feel to it and I felt very secure in such a rural location with electric gates at the entrance.
We arrived in the dark, but the views in the morning were beautiful of the surrounding country side, a highly recommended place to stay even with small children!
After a dreaful journey is was a dream to arrive a such a beautiful location, then we saw our bed for the night and were delighted. Everything we needed was there, all mod cons and plenty of store cupboard essentials if we needed them. I can't give a 5/5 as there were problems with the shower, but apart from that this is a picture perfect location that will give you a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Really enjoyed our stay. Wellrose Barn has all the facilities you want with the added bonus of beautiful views and a lovely private setting. Would recommend to anyone wanting a delightful bolthole in Hertfordshire.
We stayed almost three weeks at Wellrose Barn when we moved to England from overseas and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The hosts are very kind, welcoming people who made our stay very pleasant.They recommended lots of great places to see and explore.
The accommodation is just fantastic; a spacious studio apartment in a former barn, separate from the main cottage. The owners put lots of love into the interior design and made it very homey. Benefits of the place include covered parking, electric gate (you get your own key), comfortable bed, own kitchen including stove, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster and kettle, strong wi-fi internet connection and TV. The owners are so thoughtful; they even provided bread, eggs, milk and a few other staples.
If the place itself wouldn't have already wowed us its location in the countryside sure would have done the trick. The surrounding fields invite you to take long walks away from the hustle and bustle of busy London (but you are still in convenient driving distance). We met a few of the neighbours too. They all spoke highly of the hosts at Wellrose Barn.
For us, the best part however was that the place is dog-friendly. Travelling with a two-year old medium-sized dog is a challenge; there are not many accommodations that welcome pets. We fell in love with the hosts the minute they said they have a puppy and our dogs could play together in the garden (a paradise for garden lovers!). We arrived early and had to leave for an appointment shortly after. It was a huge relief that we could leave our dog with the hosts to play with their dogs. They kept an eye on our jet-lagged dog and made sure that the dogs have enough time and space to get acquainted without stress. Over the three weeks our puppy became happier by the day, enjoyed lots of playtime in the garden and even got spoiled with treats from the hosts. They had brought chewing treats for their dogs and included our dog so she would not feel left out. And whenever we had to run errands we could leave her there, knowing that she is well taken care of.
All in all, it is the perfect location for a quiet getaway in the countryside. The vast trail system (footpaths) surrounding the barn invites for long walks in nature. We saw two deer, lots of rabbits and squirrels on our walks.
We recently traveled to England from the US to visit my husbands family and stayed 8 wonderful nights at wellrose barn. It was clean airy and lots of space to stretch out. The countryside was beautiful and convenient to motorways and shopping without being in the middle of town. The owner was a charming perfect hostess and allowed us complete privacy, but was available for questions and information. The bed was big and comfortable and we slept great. The views were terrific and local village charming. Would definitely stay again when we are over again for a visit. It was also surprisingly very affordable. Great value for your pound or dollar. Thanks again to our hostess who was terrific. Take my advise and book your stay you will have no regrets!
