Testimonials

Yogi Trish –

As part of YMCA Bath Group we ran a 3 day yoga retreat at Barley Wood in April this year. It was fabulous! Such a stunning backdrop to a yoga retreat. Staff were brilliant – super helpful and all our guests said the venue surpassed their expectations. A fabulous venue for retreats, weddings and celebrations – and best of all surplus funds from the hire of the venue supports the valuable work the YMCA does with vulnerable young people. The restoration work that you are all doing on the house, out buildings and grounds is commendable. Thank you to all the staff – we will definitely be back.

We can’t put into words how incredibly lucky we feel to have had our wedding at Barley Wood. It is an extremely special places, full of history and beautifully restored. The team can’t do enough to help you – from viewings in the run up to the wedding to getting stuck in on the day! Nothing is too much trouble. It really feels like it your home for the weekend.

Our friends and family haven’t stopped raving about the house – I know a lot of them want to come back to see it again and we are hoping someone books their wedding here we can experience it all again!

Wow this has to be the most beautiful place with the most relaxing atmosphere you can possibly have to hold your very special day. The staff could not have been more accommodating and easy going. This is the place to hold any special event. My daughter married here. Everything was so easy and relaxed. Believe me. I’ve organised and helped lots of people with weddings. These guys have to be the best. Plus you also have outstanding grounds with an abundance amount of scope to dress it to you theme and Gary is there to advise and help should you want it. The building itself has a huge wow factor. What Gary has achieved in the time he has had to get it ready for opening is outstanding. The bedrooms are huge clean and tastefully decorated in keeping with the building. Gary is on hand throughout the day to help with anything. We had the place for the weekend and it was the best weekend we have ever had. My daughters wedding was the most relaxing fun weddings. Both family’s we able to spend the weekend together in the same building and not feel on top of each other. There was loads of space for the children to run around, quite area for the grandparents and room for the younger generation to party. Honest don’t look any further for holding any event. It’s all here. We really didn’t want to leave. I need another excuse to have another event at Barley wood. Huge thank you to all the team and we wish you an amazing year. Amanda & Emily
