We stayed for 4 nights in the smaller of the 2 rooms. It is beautifully decorated with a fantastic comfy super king size bed. The room looks out over the lovely garden and countryside views across the lawn. Whilst there we saw wild rabbits and deer in the garden. There are tea and coffee making facilities, lovely shortbread biscuits and...

A lovely rural and peaceful location - but only a few miles from Reading! We went up to London for the day by train which worked really well. It was so nice to return to the tranquility of Setters Barn. The accommodation was excellent - our room overlooked the garden, was spacious and very comfortable. Loads to do in the...

It took less than 1 hour from Heathrow and we were greeted with a fabulous room and knowledge that Nick had booked a table at one of their favourite nearby pubs! Everything was perfect including our breakfast the following morning before our...

A lovely B&B just a short drive from Goring. The rooms have a feeling of luxury with comfy beds, modern bathrooms and working wi-fi. The hosts Nick and Louise made a lovely breakfast, always making sure everyone got what they wanted, accommodating adults, child and baby :) Nick's freshly baked home made sour dough bread was a real treat every...

We enjoyed an early January week at Setter Barn. The location was peaceful and convenient for visiting family in Goring. Our room, the smaller of the two, was immaculate and cosy with views across the fields. We particularly enjoyed the huge and comfortable bed. Breakfast turned out to be an event to really look forward to each morning. Nick's home-baked...

Lovely setting about 20mins from Reading. Comfortable bed, peaceful at night with great stars and only the odd Owl breaking the silence. Wonderful hosts and nice breakfast. Would definitely be back if working in Reading area.
