“The Class of The Rosary Priory Bushey, Herts (now closed) chose Alder Barn for our annual get together and we have had a fantastic weekend. Alder Barn has been spacious, comfortable and well equipped for the purposes of having buckets of fun.
The charm and the beauty of the village have kept us here all weekend despite our intention to visit the market town of Hitchen and Cambridge. The surroundings provided great walks and so many historical points of interest. Everyone we have been in contact with locally has been very friendly and we particularly enjoyed the produce available in Crumps. Will have lovely memories of our stay.
“The accommodation is nothing short of spectacular. We all loved it and didn’t want to leave. The only thing we didn’t agree on was if we lived there who would get what room!”
As there is 9 of us in our family and none of our houses would have been big enough for Christmas we decided to go away and we hit the jackpot when we chose Alder Barn.

We had such a wonderful Christmas Stay there and being able to collect the keys from the key safe when we arrived made it all the more stress free.
Jon & Abi answered any questions we had and thanks to them we had a lovely stress free Christmas.
We hope to be able to return sometime again this year – Highly recommended!!!! :-)”
“Just spent New Year at Alder Barn. To be honest I could not have asked for more. The property itself is fantastic, massive, and a great place to spent time with friends. Everything worked like a dream, plus has a nice big TV! Definately reccomended and I’ll be coming back.”
“We stayed at Alder Barn for a couple of weeks whilst on vacation from the US visiting family in Birmingham. Great house and the village is beautiful. Just wish you got places like this in the US. Now trying to work out how we can afford to come again next year!”
“We rented this property with a few friends for a week’s break. I cannot rave about Ashwell enough, some great pubs, and a really pretty village. The property itself was great, loads of space and lots of character, and everything worked. Highly reccomended!”
“We has a short break at the property as we had a friends wedding in Hertfordshire. Nice property and very well furnished. Our kids loved the balcony. Will definately come back as would like to explore more of Ashwell and the surrounding area, as its really nice round there.”
Jon and Abi set up Alder Barn so everything is ready when you arrive.
With their two girls, Jon and Abi have stayed at numerous holiday homes throughout the UK, and were constantly frustrated by having to take linen and make beds, buy bin bags and washing up liquid and having to take meter readings at the end and pay extra for electricity! For us this always detracted from the holiday.
We believe that the holiday should start right at the very beginning; so when you arrive you all the essentials are provided to get you going (made beds, clean towels, toilet rolls, bin bags etc.). There will be a pint of milk in the fridge, plus tea and coffee so you can unwind after a long journey. Then, at the end of the holiday, there are no extra charges for utilities, and you will get your deposit back in seven days.
Our aim is to make your holiday at Alder Barn relaxing as possible.
