A perfect venue for friends to meet up for a relaxing break, with everything you could want for a stay in beautiful rural Essex. The owners couldn’t be more helpful and perfect location for walking.”

Jane TBuckingham, UK

“We had a lovely few days staying in The Great Barn. The barn is amazing and really well equipped, very comfortable and clean and every luxury thought of – it was perfect for our two families to share. We were made to feel very welcome, Jackie and John were very helpful and have great knowledge of the local area. There are fantastic walks on your doorstep and lots to explore nearby.”

Elizabeth BLondon, UK

“We had such a wonderful stay here – it’s a great location for meeting up and I can’t wait to come back again! The owners have thought of everything – even a record player so take your old vinyl’s!  The whole family had a wonderful time and we couldn’t fault the accommodation or anything about our stay here.”

James PLondon, UK

Chris HWorcester UK

“Just returned from a fabulous family get together for a “big birthday” at The Great Barn. My sister and I booked it to take mum and dad and the family for dad’s 70th, and it was perfect – we had loads of space and could also do things together as a family! The location is superb: amazing views front and back and magnificent walking in Epping Forest”

The Great Barn

Epping Ongar Steam Railway (Pic) - During the season steam train whistles from the Epping Ongar Railway can be routinely heard outside the Great Barn. One ticket provides all day access to delightful old buses and trains. Go early and don't waste the day. Refreshments are available on the railway and there is a busy pub close to North Weald Station called the Kings Head. Real ale, of course!

Shopping - Try Chelmsford - A thriving and rejuvenated town centre with a new John Lewis and, of course, many eating places. Also shopping malls at Westfield at Stratford, Lakeside (on the Thames Estuary!) and Bluewater across the Thames in Kent.
