“Fantastic Location, Amazing Facilities, we did not want to leave”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I don't usually write reviews but following our weekend at Lane Barton I felt I had to share.
12 of us visited for a friends stag do and I can honestly say Derek had thought of everything to give us a fantastic weekend. The sleeping pods are perfect, clean with new showers and toilets. There are games, sports and activities that could keep you going weeks let alone a weekend. We hired in bubble football, which was great fun and would recommend for any group.
The bar, cooking facilities, lounge and decking all give great options.

We are looking forward to creating an excuse to book again.

Thanks Derek and Ang for creating such a great space.

Cheers

Rhys

“Totally different, totally awesome!”
Reviewed 7 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

So a large group of 30 something friends and I booked for the barn for a New Year's Eve party with a difference. Something a break from the norm. And boy did it deliver on that front!

To begin with, the photos really don't do the place justice. It's huge. Essentially it's a massive converted cow shed, with 5 static tee-pee style pods, a fully functioning kitchen, lounge and dining room plus the biggest astroturf leisure area you're ever likely to see indoors!

Now, don't book this expecting a hotel. It's not a hotel. It's more akin to posh camping, or glamping, in my opinion and is all the better for it. Do not be deceived however as the sleeping pods are one of the many highlights. They each sleep four, with two proper single beds and two futon style beds in each. They also have a private toilet and shower in each pod too. These are all brand new and finished to a way higher standard than any of our group were expecting! Plus they have really cool coloured ambient lighting which was a really nice touch. Proper bedding, and you can expect a proper nights sleep.

The kitchen is also great, and very well stocked with everything you could want. The dining area adjacent would comfortably seat 20-30 if required and also houses a sound system and TV. There is another TV in the lounge / snug which also has a giant stack of beanbags on which you can all chill out.

The main area is simply superb. All sorts of games are provided; from pool and table tennis to jenga, badminton, boules and even a massive projector television. You won't be bored staying here! We stayed 3 nights and didn't leave once!

The service offered by Derek was also second to none. Nothing was too much trouble. One word of warning was that as this was originally a barn the main area gets cold (although it was December when we went!) so layer up. That said, the kitchen, dining area, snug and pods were all toasty so it wasn't a problem for us.

I'd thoroughly recommend this to for any large group event such as a stag or hen, or for several families wanted a group trip away. It's totally different to anything you've ever seen before, and all the better for it. Keep up the good work Derek, you total legend.

“Christmas 2015”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

It was great experience staying in the Lane Burton Leisure Barn. This place is ideal for a large group. Lot of activities for kids and grown ups like TT, badminton, volley ball, pool, etc. If you book the whole barn (with large group) you have the whole area for yourself and it's very secure. Loved the nearby areas and there are a lot of amazing places to visit within close proximity.
The rooms are cozy and the kitchen is well equipped.

Reviewed 23 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Just come back from celebrating our friends 40th birthday. It was a mixture of adults
and children. It is a fantastic and quirky place with loads to do! The children never got bored with all the space and games. The adults had lots of fun too with plenty of food and drink. The sleeping pod are lovely and done out very well. The place is fully equipped, and has everything you need! Great facilities. Definitely recommend it for any large parties looking for something different and fun.

What a unique place - caters for big groups wanting a good time, including children. The barn is unlike anywhere else we had ever stayed. At the same time as being quirky it was wonderfully comfortable with brilliant little touches that kept suprising us. The hosts were absolutely amazing! You would be hard pressed to find people so considerate and welcoming.... a treasure of a place.
