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

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just got back from an amazing hen weekend at Anstey Grove Barn. The barn is absolutely beautiful - idyllic garden, 6 lovely bedrooms and great space for entertaining up to 12 people.

Andrew and Alice could not have been more lovely or helpful.

Would really recommend this for any get-together with friends or family. The barn is really close to Cambridge. We went punting in the day with Lets Go Punting which was good value and lots of fun. We also did a Life Drawing class in the afternoon in the garden which was a very fun hen do activity (I booked through info@lifem?odeloxfords? and would definitely recommend).

We could have just stayed in the barn all weekend and been perfectly happy! Thanks to Andrew and Alice for helping make a great weekend.


A large group of us visited the barn for a hen in June, staying Friday to Sunday. The barn was clean and bea
