Abbeyside Barn Hero 5

Abbeyside Barn Heart of England

A peaceful haven near London for a family holiday

In this restored 15th century barn, a patchwork of beautiful rooms is woven together by characterful ancient beams. Against this historic backdrop, Abbeyside Barn is furnished with contemporary charm. This delightful homestead is ideal for a family gathering, with luxury extras that will please everyone.

A stone’s throw from Windsor and just half an hour from London, you can escape from the world in this peaceful haven. Flop onto cosy sofas and plan your days - relaxing in the outdoor pool or checking out the wizard-themed study/games room. And wait until the children see the amazing treehouse playground and the sunken trampoline!

When evening falls, fire up the barbecue, gather round the firepit or head for the outdoor jacuzzi and watch the stars come out as you sink into the bubbles. Back indoors, put another log on the wood burner, play your favourite tunes on the Sonos sound system or make music on the Yamaha piano, before heading for one of the seven ensuite bedrooms, which are as charming as the living areas.

Abbeyside Barn is set in large, secluded gardens with plenty of lawn space for games and a terrace with seating. There is also a self-contained annexe if you have a larger party. Cater for yourselves in the gorgeous Miele kitchen, or take advantage of a range of premium services for an additional charge, which include a personal chef, daily housekeeping, spa treatments and childcare.
