“Perfect weekend away!”
Reviewed 24 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

A wonderful weekend spent at Barry House! The house is stunning and we loved hearing about the history behind it. It is well catered for large groups and offers the perfect space for entertaining. Natasha and Duncan were extremely accommodating and made us feel right at home. We are looking forward to our next visit :)

“Nice spot ”
Reviewed 22 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

This is a quaint sprawling house that is perhaps a little lost in time. The rooms are nicely done and there's everything you need but it does feel like the owners left thirty years ago

It's very close to Robertson and in a vineyard//stud farm, the payoff for watching numerous foals frolic is an abundance of flies!

Worth it if you fill it

We appreciate your honest assessments and have included them in our budget planning. To help our guest to enjoy the view whilst chilling on the long veranda we have installed 3 overhead fans - the moving air currents are successfully keeping the flies away. Whilst Barry House on Riverton is a heritage manor we certainly don't want our guest to feel that it is too lost in time. We are thus giving careful consideration as to how we can "freshen up" the rooms without the house losing it's historic charm and the "artifacts" that some of our guests find fascinating. So far, aside from some minor subtle changes, we have replaced the brass bed and 2 of our rooms are sporting slightly more 'modern' headboards - one being a padded grey leather Victorian diamond headboard. You have certainly set us an interesting challenge which we are keen to meet and trust our guests will approve of. Thank you! Kind regards, Natasha & Duncan Barry

“Awesome weekend in lovely house”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in November 2016

We had the privilege to stay in Barry House for a weekend. Each of our group had a lovely bedroom and could enjoy the most lovely decor and antique furniture while being spoiled with all the modern facilities. The owners were friendly and welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. Housekeeping staff were friendly and efficient. We were even spoiled with home-baked bread and a lovely breakfast on our last morning. We'll definitely visit Barry House again in future.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 28 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Barry House is a delightful old family home on a beautiful horse farm. The house is wonderfully presented with ample space for large groups. The setting is outstanding, offering beauty and tranquility. We were lucky enough to witness a goal being born, which was fantastic. Local wine tasting and restaurants are close by and offer good value for money. I can highly recommend massages, which can be done at the house by prior arrangement. Overall a great stay. We will definitely be back as Duncan and Natasha complete the experience with their friendliness and hospitality.
