My Grandson and I had a lovely few days at this b&b. It is a lovely Barn and is very self contained. We were given our own key to the building and were able to come and go as we pleased, without having to disturb the owners . The breakfast was left for us, which consisted of a bowl of...

We booked Upper Barns for the August Bank Holiday weekend as we were going to a wedding in Finchingfield on the Sunday. I could tell from the pics on the internet it was going to be lovely but it surpassed my expectations. We had our son, daughter-in-law and baby with us so it was wonderful to be able to use...

My family stayed in the 3 rooms here following my brother's wedding. The rooms are lovely, beds super-comfortable, bathrooms gorgeous and the lounge is a perfect place to relax. The breakfast was brilliant too- more food than we could possibly eat and lots of choice. There's also a lovely little library, which I could have relaxed in for hours given...

Upper Barns lived up to it's website. We received a very warm welcome and were shown to our en-suite bedroom (one of three) which was warm, clean, bright and tastefully decorated/furnished. We had a very comfortable night. A delicious breakfast was served in their superb beamed hall, which is also the guest lounge. They have thought of everything to make...

I stayed here for three nights. Nick is a very welcoming host. It seemed nothing was too much trouble. The honest bar is a great idea. The lounge area has background music and relaxing tea lights which are lit and not for show. Room 1 has a large bed &fabulous shower and a spa bath. It is clean. Breakfast was...

We booked this on spec and are so glad we did. Where do I start? WELL right from the get go the owners could not do enough to help us. I am allergic to caffeine so a breakfast pot of decaf coffee was not a problem, my husband had a job interview so we needed an early breakfast again this...

Upper Barns is a beautifully converted barn with luxurious en suite rooms. Nothing was too much trouble for our host Nick, and this is without doubt the best value room I have ever stayed in. I will definitely be back very soon.

I arrived late one night last week starving hungry and in desperate need of a drink. Being able to get a drink and snacks from the honesty bar without having to leave again was very welcome and a fabulous idea......The accommodation is comfortable. I had a large modern room with en suite bathroom complete with a spa bath.....Comfy bed, good...

We spent our wedding night here after getting married at the near by village of Finchingfield. We arrived very late and were still met with a warm welcome and shown to our room. The bedroom was large, well decorated and featured a great bathroom. Views of the garden were lovely and the whole atmosphere of Upper Barns was very peaceful....

Upper Barns is a real gem whether you're in this part of Essex for a wedding or for business. The standard is very high and a lot of effort has been put in, I would say it is more boutique hotel than B&B. So it is worth the extra few quid over the usual run of the mill pub style...
