We have another larger property next door and can sleep in total with both properties 12 in 6 bedrooms without using the sofa bed and other temporary beds.

We have larger and other properties available adjacent in the Old Town but do note whilst we can do up to 7 guests in The Barn - it would be a bit of a squeeze - it would require the sofa bed to be used and the put me up bed as well - its fine for children or one family with close friends but 7 adults might be a stretch.
The Barn is featured in the photographs and sleeps up to 7 people. It has 2 bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with twin beds. A sofa bed is located in the sitting room and single put you up bed is also available.

The Annex : newly available small self contained annex available adjacent to the Barn so same secluded private location. Just 12 meters from the Barn entrance so easy to combine with a Barn booking. Consists of double bedroom and private bathroom with own exclusive entrance and privacy. Small hallway and outside seating and private parking space adjoining. Fridge, tea and coffee facilities - full independent Sky TV and superfast broadband. Ideal for a short stay. The rate is just £89 per night. Please see the photos on the "Suite at the Barn" page on this website.

Annex review April 2018

“Welcoming, friendly hosts. .My first stay A compact room but had a separate bathroom. all very clean. The double bed was really comfortable and the duvet was of a good quality. Had a really great sleep which is unusual for me when I stay away. There was even a bottle of wine win the fridge and muesli for breakfast. Definitely recommend and will stay again.”

By adding the annex to the Barn accommodation, we can accommodate 6 people in permanent beds with two bathrooms or 9 using the sofa bed and put me up bed.

5/5 Excellent

John and Gill have a wonderful little getaway home in the Barn. And they make every visit special.
John and Gill’s guest house in Old Amersham is becoming home away from home for us. We love the home, the town and the region of South Buckinghamshire. John and Gill are always welcoming and helpful, lovely people.

Home away from home
Best place we've stayed in. John and Gill are lovely people. Great hosts, very helpful. Very comfortable home in an idyllic part of the UK. Amersham is a lovely old town in the countryside. We loved it. We will be back soon and often.

5/5 Excellent

Gill and John are fabulous hosts and The Old Barn is excellent in every way!
The location of the property could not be better both for convenience and beauty. Our hosts had the refrigerator stocked and everything we needed for our week’s stay was at out fingertips. The home was sparkling clean and organized and Gill and John were on hand to answer all of our questions. We could not have asked for a better week and we will certainly be back and so will our 3 children who LOVED their stay in Amersham.

5/5 Excellent
