Sprawled across a 490-acre farm that dates abck to the 1930s, Tewin Bury Farm Hotel makes for an ideal getaway after a busy week – particularly thanks to its convenient location, just outside of Hertford and Welwyn Garden City, and around 30 minutes by train from London King’s Cross station. As well as holding four AA stars, it’s been a Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust Reserve for many years, so nature is sure to be high on the list here.

Really lovely - would recommend. Good quality accommodation and breakfast in the morning. Nice country side location. We attended for an event - everything on site. Our room had a lake view and was very comfortable.

Peaceful retreat

A lovely place to stay in very pleasant surroundings. Everything on site - excellent food, easy parking, beautiful countryside, wildlife, and very peaceful. Plus - electric car charging points - very essential for us. Tewin Bury Farm provides modern amenities in a delightful rural setting.

A very pleasant environment

We stayed at the hotel for a night away having won a nights accomodation and breakfast in a raffle.
We were delighted with our room which was very clean and spacious.
The location was wonderful. We enjoyed drinks in the bar before walking across the fields to Tewin to visit a local pub for dinner. It took 25 mins and was very pleasant and easy.
We enjoyed breakfast the next morning which had a good range of continental and traditional English foods - the sausages were particularly good.
The staff are all very polite and friendly . Very helpful.
I would recommend this highly even though the drink prices are a bit high .

Great place to stay for business or with the family

I've stayed here a number of times. Staff are super helpful. The site is amazing, a beautiful country location. The rooms are fitted out to a really high standard and there are many different types of rooms to suit families, business people and honeymooners! The restaurants serve fantastic food, the breakfast is a particular favourite. I initially stayed here as they have facilities to charge electric cars, since then I have taken the family to stay there to enjoy all that Tewin Bury Farm has to offer.

Amazing room

My wife and I stayed overnight here for a friends wedding. I have to say it is one of the most beautiful venues I have had the pleasure of visiting for a wedding. All of the staff here were fast and friendly and made the whole day and night a pleasure.

We stayed overnight in the Oak room and it was one of the nicest rooms I have slept in; spacious bathroom, mezzanine level with a spare bed, decorated really nicely and as clean as anyone could want. The next morning we enjoyed a delicious buffet breakfast - the food was amazing.

Highly recommended and I think we will be going back soon!
