    Little Gaerfields is the perfect place for a family get together. Having organised so many weekends away together we all agreed that this is the best place so far – beautiful bedrooms, lots of bathrooms, great relaxing spaces plus a play barn and pool for the kids ( and adults). Then on top of all that the wonderful views from the windows, chickens, horses, sheep – we all had a great time. Special thanks to the lovely Caire from Old Shire Catering for cooking us the most amazing 3 course meal and leaving us with a tidy kitchen afterwards. A great place we hope to come back

    We have just today, returned from a wonderful, relaxing and active holiday 03 to 09 at this delightful Little Gaerfields.
    The first plus was Sheila approaching my son and I when we arrived earlier than expected. Asking us if we were those booked she told us to go in and ‘make ourselves at home’. Well no further encouragement necessary we did a very quick tour decided that a very happy time was now guarantied so awaited the rest of the party, especially the 30th Birthday boy. Soon we encountered Vernon and had a quick resume of the farming aspect of Upperfields Farm which was rather interesting. When all had arrived so began a splendid time together.
    Herefordshire is too beautiful so too nearby Wales with easily accessible Brecon Beacons National Park.
    Cameras, pool, bicycles,nearby Go Karting, kayaks and walks were soon well utilized and a grand time was had by all which included 2 babies and a 2 year old girl!
    Thank you Vernon and Sheila.

    We have stayed here the past 3 days, only came back today, we went for my uncles 40th birthday and we all had a amazing time. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed every bit of the weekend especially the pool. Which was brilliant for kids to play in. I will be recommending this place to all my friends and family. Oh and i cant forget we also loved the black and white cat that came to stay with us, were guessing he belongs to the farm, but he was gorgeous and so friendly, he loved cuddling up on our beds at night. Thankyou owners for a great weekend. We are very grateful, it was well worth the money and hopefully we will be back next year!
    Thank you for your lovely comments, I am so glad you had a wonderful weekend especially when the weather was so awful. The black and white cat is called Minty, he is a very friendly and loves his cuddles.

    Firstly a massive thank you to Sheila for her excellent communication in the organising of my other half’s 30th Birthday weekend at Little Gaerfields. The barn conversion is set in an absolutely ideal location far enough away from everything to escape the day to day life but also easy enough to get to that the travel there isn’t a pain. With 18 adults in the house and plenty of frivolity , cheer and music I was concerned that we would be a nascence to the owners. Thankfully Sheila didn’t have to come over and was only around if we’d asked her for something. I have recommended it to all my friends already as a great get away, not only for large groups but for family as well. The kitchen is stunning and has everything you need to have 20 or more for breakfast , the play barn (not just for children) in case it rains and of course the swimming pool were all beautiful features if you don’t want to leave the premises.. thank you so much again and hope to see you soon.

    Little Gaerfields is the most idyllic hideaway, surrounded by amazing countryside. The house itself is lovely with ample space and all mod cons. There were 16 of us aged 8 to 74 and we had a wonderful time. Caire’s cooking on Saturday evening was fantastic – amazing food and served and cleared away just like a first class restaurant. The swimming pool was well used as was the play barn and nothing was too much for Sheila, who even unpacked our grocery order before we arrived and rearranged the bathrooms to suit us. Many Thanks for a wonderful birthday weekend.

    We have just returned from a fab weekend at Little Gaerfields. We went for my 50th Birthday with family and friends, 18 adults in total. The barn conversion is beautifully done, very comfortable, with plenty of room for everyone.
    Sheila was very helpful, and at my request made all the beds up as singles to accommodate everyone.
    We all enjoyed the pool, swim jet and sauna. Feeding the chickens and collecting eggs were things we had never done before.
    The open plan living room/ kitchen was ideal for eating together and for our party games!
    We all had a really good time and will be recommending it to our friends.
    Thank you, we will be back!

    We have just spent a fantastic weekend at Little Gaerfields. There were 18 of us, all one family, and we enjoyed every minute! The kids loved the pool and spent a lot of time in there! The house is beautiful and spotlessly clean. It is so well equipped that we had everything we could need. Huge comfy beds, hiding places for the kids and a daily visit from Jed the dog (who is gorgeous!) made it a really special family weekend. If you are thinking of booking, do it! It looks good in the photos but even better in real life!

    Little Gaerfields is a truly wonderful place to stay! The barn conversion is beautifully done and the bedrooms are roomy and living space large, comfortable and well equipped. Plenty of space and plenty of bathrooms. Lots of hot water and well heated.
    The outside space and play barn is also great fun, including the clean and well heated pool.
    We were a party of 20 and everybody felt relaxed and happy at Little Gaerfields and we are all eager to return.
    I really do feel that what really makes the barn such a wonderful place to stay is Sheila!
    She is very welcoming, and so relaxed, but at the same time attentive to all our needs. No fuss or hassle. She very kind in so many ways. Thank you Sheila.
    Also, a very big thank you to Caire who catered for 10 adults for my birthday. Again no fuss or hassle, she very discretely cooked up a wonderful three course supper. I would definitely recommend her!

    We stayed in Upperfields barn from 17th February 2012….We had an amazing time. We are four families but are great friends, there was 15 of us in total and the barn was more than adequate size for us all. Sheila was great and didnt bother us unless we went over to her. It truly is an amazing relaxing experience, no hussle and bussle and no rushing round. The kids adored feeding the pigs and Ged the dog was so friendly. The pool was great for both the adults and children. The beds were very comfy and huge, i actually think i lost my hubby a few times in it. Would definatley recommed this for a great relaxing retreat. x

    I would like to thank everyone for such a wonderful time we had at Little Gaerfields, Shiela could not do enough for us. The barn was fantastic and there was plenty to do for all 15 of us. From the kids (and the adults)playing in the pool, to having a late night walk.The peace and relaxation was fantastic. We all really enjoyed it, and we all really miss being there.

    We had a superb weekend at Little Gaerfields. We were a group of friends (11 adults, 2 children, 2 toddlers and 2 babies)and we found the facilities just perfect. Having a spare oven and 2 dishwashers, plenty of pots, pans and dishes made the cooking stress-free. The open plan kitchen/ diner/ living space meant that we could keep an eye on the kids while busy cooking. The zip beds were so comfortable that I am now planning to order a new mattress for my own bed at home! The house was lovely and warm despite freezing temperatures outside and we found the Shepherd’s Hut to be very cosy too.

    Sheila was very warm and welcoming and we loved all the special touches which came with living on the farm: pig-feeding, Jed-feeding, chicken-feeding, collecting fresh eggs to eat……!
    The pool is fantastic and perfectly warm for babies.
    The 3 and 4 year olds loved the bunk-bed room, and we also had a lot of fun playing hide-and-seek in the house.

    Thank you! We’ll be back.

    Had a wonderful stay at Little Gaerfields! We all had a lovely time, the house is great with lots of games and the pool and sauna. The bedroom was lovely and I enjoyed the animals around the house. It is a great family holiday and I hope we can come back again!
    Thanks Sheila x

    We had a wonderful stay at Little Gaerfields, our hosts couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful, we especially appreciated some wonderful gifts of eggs (both chocolate and normal) and veggies. Though the pavlova was definitely the best and really delicious!

    The accommodation was wonderful very comfortable, the photos on the website didn’t do the barn justice – it was fab! Great location, beautiful scenery, loved the playarea looking over the countryside – will definitely return!

  14. Matt & Ruth, family and friends says:

    Just returned from a fantasic weekend at Little Gaerfields. The weekend went by so quickly as there was so much to do – the pool, the play area, the field for ball games, the indoor play barn the list goes on. The house is ideally located for lovely walks in and around the countyside and yet near to towns and cities to visit more major attractions if you wanted to. The house was very clean and spacious and Sheila had thought of everything even down to the chocolate eggs! The encouragement to recycle was welcomed and fun for the children – after all its not everyday you can feed scraps to the pigs! Sheila and Vernon as hosts were always there to offer you advice and help whilst ensuring and repsecting your complete privacy. We – thats 11 children, 8 adults and 1 dog having had a busy yet very relaxing weekend and are already planning next years reunion. Thankyou. Definitely recommend

    We have just returned from our annual family holiday. Ages 84 to 1 year old all had a marvellous time. The house has everything you need, the pool is fantastic and the play barn an unexpected extra.

    Sheila was very helpful and the eggs, freashly baked cake and flowers made us feel very welcome.

    Highly recommend this house if you want a relaxing away from it all break
