Fantastic large group weekend 5/5
Excellent! As a group of 23 we had a fantastic long weekend on the complex, between the main barn, the cottages and the oast we had everything we could have needed and all to a high standard. This is our second time staying at the property and we will be back for a third I am sure!! Thanks for a great weekend

Family Christmas 5/5
Our second year on the trot - cant find anything better in the area for our traditional family Christmas celebrations - ideal location both for us from the Netherlands and family from Plymouth

Great Higham Complex 5/5
We had a wonderful weekend stay at Great Higham with family and friends to celebrate our 50th wedding Anniversary. It was perfect for a large family and friends get together. The grounds and pools were well maintained and rooms were very clean and comfortable. I would strongly recommend. Bloom stays.

Great place for a week with our team 5/5
We had an excellent stay and will be booking our companies next offsite there again. It was spacious, clean and just a beautiful property.

Fantastic stay with a large group 4.8/5

Corporate Xmas meeting and meal 4.8/5
We all had an amazing stay and couldn`t really fault anything. Just a slight issue with one of the doors but likely due to the weather. Location a bit tricky to get to due to snow and ice but once arrived views very spectacular. Really ideal for a large group as you have separate areas to go to so not on top of everyone. Looking to return next year during the summer so we can enjoy the outside

What a wonderful place 5/5
We have a traditional family Christmas weekend every year- this is the 10th and the best. The whole complex suited our needs down to a tee and as half the family lives in the Netherlands the journey was easy.

A Fabulous Place to relax! 4.7/5
We absolutely loved our time at The Great Higham Barn Complex! We had our registry office wedding a few weeks before and then booked Great Higham for the (very low-key, homemade!) family celebration. No catering, no band, no decorations (not that any were needed in such a beautiful place!) and just a small group of people. It was so special! What a place to get dressed up and do our vows! Staff at Bloom Stays and the Housekeeper Mandy were super friendly and relaxed and very helpful. Very quick to sort out an issue with the heating in the Oast (fixed within the hour!) and everything was fully stocked, clean and lovely. The pool is amazing and the hot tub heavenly! The outside space is just fabulous, we loved sitting at the big table at the side of the barn. The living room area is huge and warm and comfy. Such a great place to hang out with friends no family! I didnt stay in the cottages personally but our guests love them and the gardens are so charming! The Oast is a bit creaky and feels like an older property but its still lovely, clean and charming. But the Barn was honestly a dream come true! Exceptionally good value for such an amazing place. There were only a few minor things that would make this holiday an absolute 5 star in every category, and theyre easily fixed! The master bedroom in the Barn (Georgia on the new floor plans!) needs a new shower head as the limescale has stopped the current one working properly. The mattresses in the largest room with the shared bathroom (Regina!) are mainly springs so werent comfortable compared to others in the property. It would also be extremely helpful to have an inventory available for customers of what is in the kitchen and bathrooms. We took lots of stuff down with us that we didnt need because they were provided, but forgot other bits that werent provided, so an inventory would be super helpful. There were loads of speakers too so we didnt really need the ones we took unless we were outside. With the exception of the dodgy mattress all the other issues were super minor, and didnt take away from a truly fabulous holiday! I cant imagine having another excuse to rent such a large place again (although I wish we could!), but we will certainly check Bloom stays out again for smaller holidays!

Amazing Family Celebration! 5/5
Our stay at Great Higham was just perfect. We had a lovely few days celebrating big family milestones - a 50th Wedding Anniversary, and 18th and 21st birthdays with family and friends. The accommodation is stunning, very clean and comfortable and the facilities are amazing - we all made good use of the swimming pool and hot tub and lovely gardens, as well as enjoying local walks with our dogs. This place exudes relaxation and you'll find you won't want to leave!

Corporate Stay at Great Higham Barn 5/5
We stayed at Great Higham for a corporate event and enjoyed all that the complex has to offer offer. The accommodation is clean, comfortable, peaceful and relaxing all set within a beautiful countryside setting. For large friends and family groups the complex is ideal offering a range of accommodation with lots of space for all - plus the delights of the heated swimming pool, tennis court and hot tub. We will be back!

All was excellent.

What an amazing place! 5/5
We hired the whole complex to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with family and close friends. On initial arrival and throughout our 2 night stay everyone commented enthusiastically about the complex and the facilities and several availed themselves of the hot tub, swimming pool and tennis courts. Facilities for catering and entertaining are excellent with a well equipped kitchen, plenty of fridge and freezer space as well as more than adequate glasses, crockery and cutlery. We enjoyed the outside seating area before dinner and the large lounge area on the 1st floor easily coped with our post meal digestives and coffees. Sincere thanks to Mandy and her team for ensure the complex was set up and ready for us and for all her help and support in the weeks before our visit. Thoroughly recommended.

Incredible venue, beautifully presented 4.8/5
We were so impressed with great higham barn, it felt so luxurious and beautifully presented. Such a warm, inviting, beautifully lit retreat in the countryside but not much over an hour from London. Perfect!

What an amazing house, so far we've had a great time partying and having fun with friends. Swimming pool and hot tub have been great.

What an amazing week we have had! This has been the best holiday we have been to for family bonding. The barn is absolutely perfect with an amazing swimming pool that is warm, a fantastic hot tub with great views, not forgetting the tennis court and beautiful gardens. We loved using the BBQ which was quick to set up and the kitchen was fully equipped to cook amazing dinners.Thank you.

26 hens enjoyed a weekend FULL of sunshine, swimming, hot tubs and wine, and delicious food. Wow - what a place! Couldn't have dreamed of a better spot for special old friends coming together to celebrate getting married next month. We'll be back again very soon. Thank you!

Wonderful weekend. Fabulous facilities and the tennis court was the focus for much socialising. Beautiful setting, and plenty of all the essentials for catering for large numbers,
