"I can’t say enough about this wonderful experience. Stepping into this B&B was like stepping into a Chateau, so full of charm and warmth. Staff was amazing and completely accommodating. My first time here was with my boyfriend and his family for breakfast. The food was delicious and dining room had picturesque views of the grounds. We were given a tour of each room in the Manor House plus the cottage and barn house. Each room had its unique style and decor which I absolutely loved. We were so taken by this place my boyfriend and I went back for a pre-Valentine’s Day 6 course dinner with wine paring. I am a vegetarian and they we able to adjust the menu to fit my needs. An absolute must, I'm a picky girl from NYC and it totally won me over."
"I spent the weekend at the inn for an event and had a wonderful time. The service was first rate, the food was "out of this world" and the accommodations were amazing. The rooms are beautifully decorated with nice views of the countryside. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer inn to spend a special weekend or to celebrate a wedding."
"The Inn was gorgeous with wonderfully cared for grounds and the service was graciously friendly but not at all intrusive. The moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and the antique charm and character of the Inn was comfortable and relaxing. We had an amazing dinner in the restaurant with fresh farm to table menu items followed by complimentary dessert candies. Our room was clean, well-appointed and the double Jacuzzi tub was just perfect. I cannot think of anything about our stay that I would change, everything was lovely."
"My company rented the entire property for a company retreat. I checked out the Inn online after the arrangements were made and thought it looked nice enough. However, upon our arrival, I was really blown away and couldn't believe we were being treated to such a stately and elegant experience. The long approach down the driveway really sets the stage. We were met by a picturesque fountain (complete with cherubs) and a beautiful Manor House that is in perfect harmony with the surrounding area (which is a much more interesting corner of the Northeast than I've ever seen). We were all assigned different rooms and later discovered (on a room-by-room company tour) that each one is special in its own way. My room, Dancing in the Dark, made me feel like Marie Antoinette. If I came back, I'd love to stay in Hello Sweetheart, with its cave-like bathroom, which was the envy of our group.
The pastoral grounds are absolutely dreamy and the pair of on-site miniature horses were adorable. We loved the pool and the meadow behind the barn where we did a group improv activity.
Dinner was served to us in the dining room and the food and service were both exquisite. Scallops, duck breast, halibut, lamb... there was something for everyone (including the vegans). Presentation was beautiful and we all left very satisfied.
My only complaint was the lack of ghosts for such an old and historic place. I had been hoping for a haunting, alas, got a perfectly undisturbed night of sleep. Also, it is really a very romantic setting, which was perhaps wasted on us as bunch of colleagues. Based on the in-suite guest journals, The Barley Sheaf is an no-brainer when it comes to an anniversary destination. I would love to go back for my own."
"I cannot recommend Barley Sheaf highly enough! My daughter's wedding reception was held there on Sunday, August 17, 2014. The barn is a fabulously gorgeous venue for eating (food was delicious! Could not get enough of the brisket!), dancing, and conversation. We were extremely fortunate to have outstanding weather, so the outside seating and lawn areas were filled with our guests and the little children who attended. The room where the bridal party prepared for the wedding (The Man Who Came to Dinner) was so lovely! Three big rooms plus a balcony, and my daughter and son-in-law had the most fabulous breakfast the next morning. I have also eaten at the Barley Sheaf on several occasions other than this wedding. The food is impeccable. Portions are small but absolutely outstanding. It's also BYOB, so that makes me happy:) The scenery, the service, the food, the rooms are beyond excellent."
Have your wedding here. Simple as that!
"The Barley Sheaf is unbelievable...the gorgeous grounds, the stunning rooms, the most delicious farm to table food. The staff truly go above and beyond, making our wedding day seamless for us, and very special for our guests. It was an absolute dream, and I want to return for every anniversary!!"
Truly lovely experience...
"...in every way. The environment is beautiful, the food is wonderful, but what makes the place so special are the owners...who treat guests like family and are on top of every detail. This place is a gem."

A great treat
"There were four of us for dinner. We had appetizers and main courses. For the appetizers we had grilled romaine salad, grilled octopus and pea soup. They were all delicious. For our main courses we had lamb, turbot and duck. All of the courses were presented beautifully and everything was artfully decorated on our plates. Each dish was meticulously presented and extremely well done. The flavors were all in balance and everything was cooked to perfection. The standout was the lamb. To end they brought a collection of sweet morsels that included doughnuts, Carmela and marshmallow puffs. All in all a treat in a beautiful setting."

"We were at the Inn for a wedding. The owners are very hospitable and clearly love what they do. As a result, the rooms are clean, comfortable, and, because each one is different and decorated in its own style using antiques, interesting. The food is farm to fork and delicious. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. This is a perfect place for an evening out, a week-end get-away, or a wedding."

A quick romantic get away
"My husband and I went for an overnight and it was wonderful. Stayed in the stage door suite. Enjoyed a terrific dinner and breakfast. The owner Mark is great and they are extremely attentive without being over bearing in anyway."

"Really a different place - old world style decorations throughout - great menu - BYOB - fantastic foods and deserts. Great service from all staff especially the Lady from France who just started last night! I had steak and my wife had fish both done to perfection! Went on a Groupon just to try and will go back with no need for a coupon but just to enjoy the fine food and service. Looking at their B&B too!"

"We recently visited for a wedding and were completely stunned by the venue, the staff and the surroundings. The rooms are gorgeous and decadent, the breakfast was delicious, the staff are incredibly accommodating and helpful, and the whole experience was just perfect. I'm told that US weddings generally wrap up by the late evening but as our party was 50% British we continued to celebrate into the early hours and the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. Unbelievably, as we trudged out of our rooms and packed our cars, the staff (who were still working at 2am for our party) were setting up for the next wedding! Brilliant place. Love it."
"This is a BYBO restaurant and Bed and Breakfast. We sat down in the living room and they opened our bottles of wine, they served us on the couch until our table was ready in 5 minutes. Elegant dining room was so comfortable and the food and service was so amazing. The owner was so funny and made us feel at home. Complementary deserts and of course fresh donuts to take home with us."
