Barley Wood was originally built in 1801 for influential social reformer Miss Hannah More. During its restoration in 2015 and 2016 many original features have been preserved including some original wardrobes, woodwork and fireplaces. The rest of the house has been carefully restored and styled in a way that is sympathetic to its Georgian heritage.

Barley Wood has a rich history of entertaining, having welcomed guests including the Duke of Gloucester, the Wilberforce family, the Thorntons, Mrs.Siddons and, Mr.Gladstone.

There is a historic mention of a very large party in 1819 when, Hannah mentions; she “entertained 120 ladies and gentlemen, the superior part of the company, to a dinner of cold collation served on flower-decked table in the garden. White-robed nymphs made it the prettiest show imaginable.” This is a sight we would have loved to of seen.
