Our favourite rooms
It might be the most expensive of the lot, but the 55sq m Le Barn Suite is well worth its price tag. Beautifully furnished by Parisian design studio Be-Poles, it has a large living room, a kitchen, a cosy bedroom and a spacious private terrace with a barbecue.
There’s no pool, but you can take a dip in the wood-fired Nordic hot tubs instead: they’re outside, surrounded by decking and separated by neatly planted borders.
Le Barn has a sauna, hammam, Scandi-style hot tubs and a treatment room staffed by an ayurvedic masseur (who’s there every day) and an osteopath (who comes twice a week). Between them, they’re able to provide everything from muscle-soothing sessions to a tailored program for chronic aches and pains. Yoga classes are run seasonally and on request.
It really depends on how much you plan to do. Some come to kick back and enjoy the fresh air from the comfort of the Scandinavian hot tubs, others go all out with horse riding, biking, running and fishing. If you’re into golf, don’t forget your clubs – there’s an excellent course nearby.
All public areas are wheelchair accessible, and there are several specially adapted rooms.
Small dogs can stay for free, but be sure to let the hotel know when you’re booking: not all rooms are dog friendly. See more pet-friendly hotels in Bonnelles.
Le Barn is perfect for families: children will love the vast grounds, games areas and the wealth of activities on offer. Some rooms can be connected and turned into kids' dorms; others can fit a cot or extra bed. Babysitting is available, too.
Children of all ages will love Le Barn, but those over six will get the most out of the expansive grounds and wealth of activities on offer.
Superior Rooms and larger can fit a child up to 12 on a sofa bed. Certain Deluxe Rooms can be connected and turned into a kids' dorm with up to six beds, making the hotel perfect for large families or those travelling in groups.
Outside, you’ve got acres of grounds with an outdoor play area and areas for football, badminton, croquet, baseball and beach volleyball. The stables offers children's horse-riding lessons, and little Smiths can also try their luck fishing in the lake. Inside, there are board games, art materials, games consoles and a projection room for films.
There’s no children's menu, but the restaurants are very family friendly and have high chairs for the youngest Smiths. The staff are more than happy to heat up milk, too.
Yes. The hotel recycles waste and water, and composts anything organic from the kitchens. The ingredients used in the restaurant are either grown on their own farm or sourced from local producers and markets.
