A country hotel in a 16th-century building overlooking the River Great Ouse, with full English breakfast and either afternoon tea or a dinner allowance

Just a half-hour's train ride from central London, the beautiful little town of Bedford in the heart of idyllic Home County countryside is a perfect spot for a weekend away. Situated in a tranquil setting just a stone's throw away from the town centre, Barns Hotel is housed in an attractive 16th-century building with lovely views out over the River Great Ouse and delicious, traditional English cuisine.

Make your way through delicious, traditional English dishes, sit down to an afternoon tea looking out across the river, or try a beverage from the extensive wine and champagne list in the Riverside Tavern. Make the most of having access to the Oasis Beach Pool & Fitness Club too, or rent a boat for the afternoon and take in scenic views from the river, before heading to your cosy room for a peaceful night's sleep. Barns Hotel scooped up a coveted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
