About Andrew Marchant
Andrew and Alice have been at Anstey Grove Barn for over 30 years, raising a family and running a farm in the heart of rural Hertfordshire. In 1980 they bought a working pig farm with 20 acres of land and began to build a family home. Within months the house was built, and within years a broadleaf wood was planted and wildflower meadow cultivated that have now come to be protected by the Hertfordshire Wildlife Trust. The working pig farm has now gone, but the wood, meadows, flock of free range hens and horses remain. In 2004 Alice and Andrew decided to convert the large Barn at the heart of the farm and create high quality bed and breakfast accommodation. Their intention has always been to provide a homely base from which families, couples and those just passing through can enjoy
Andrew Marchant purchased this Barn in 1980

Every bedroom ensuite - excellent stay
Stayed sunny July 2018. Lovely private gardens and lawn for children to play on while we had our BBQ and Pimms in the shady patio area.
What sets this house apart from most on the market is that every bedroom is ensuite, making it perfect for a group of friends or multiple families. Shower water pressure and temperature is excellent.
The barn has modern bathrooms and simply and beautifully decorated bedrooms. Beds are comfortable, and linens all high quality.
The owners are really lovely people and were just round the corner if we needed anything.
It’s in peaceful countryside surrounded by fields and many country pubs just a short distance away. And a big plus for me - Ocado deliver here! Excellent stay.
Absolutely beautiful property
Owner couldn't have been more helpful
The property was great, lovely rooms and Andrew was very helpful. We had a problem with lack of catering dishes in the kitchen, we like to cook and if the house caters for 12, there was only 10 of us and we struggled for large dishes
Above and beyond
We stayed here for a hen do at the beginning of May and simply cannot emphasise how lovely it was. Andrew makes sure everything is just right for you, and even popped some ice in the freezer for me! The small touches such as shower gel and soap on every room is lovely. Waking up to the birds tweeting and nothing else was magical. The beds are luxurious, and the kitchen is very well stocked for whatever you may wish to cook! Cannot wait to book a return visit.
Beautiful barn in a great location
Our stay at Anstey Grove Barn was great. The barn is beautifully renovated, clean, and really comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped for a large group and the large dining table means that you can all eat together. All of the rooms are en suite so all parties had their privacy. The grounds are also well kept - perfect for relaxing!
Superb Barn conversion, offering a luxury stay, highly recommended.
Having come across this accommodation set in Buntingford, we decided to hold a 50th Anniversary there. Andrew was the contact, who thoroughly helped us out with all questions raised and local places to dine. Not to mention his on-hand help with anything else!.
One word. 'Fantastic' and if you are reading this, don't hesitate in booking in for a stay, the Barn itself is wonderful, fixtures and fittings, room space, and with the added bonus of being situated in a quiet location. We used a local caterer called Penelope for the Saturday eat-in meal, the food and service were both first class, and would definitely use her services again!. All in all, the weekend was excellent.
Thanks again for lovely stay,
