Laura Loves Broadway Barn
The Surrey village of Ripley has long been on the ‘must visit’ list for Fetcham Park brides being, as it is, the home of the inimitable Miss Bush Bridalwear. Imagine starting you day with coffee and cake at Nest and celebrating the purchase of your gown with a late lunch at The Anchor. In our opinion, there’s nothing better.
But now, there’s another reason why Ripley is absolutely the place to be and that reason is Broadway Barn. This idyllic sanctuary can be found just a few steps from the High Street but the sense of serenity you’ll find inside means that these few steps take you a million miles away from the everyday. We are incredibly pleased to have stumbled upon this gem hidden in plain sight as we think it’s the perfect accommodation partner for Fetcham Park.
Broadway Barn is actually a select collection of first-class accommodation right in the heart of Ripley. There’s the barn itself, Broadway Villa and Broadway Cottage, and also the delights of the Rose Lane Cottages, which we promise have all the storybook perfection that the names imply. Could there be anywhere more wonderful to wake up on the morning of your wedding or a more welcoming spot for out-of-town guests to call home for a few days?
The Broadway Barn hideaways are utterly perfect in every sense of the word; immaculate interiors that combine heavenly detailing and stunning feature pieces and the gardens have to be seen to be believed – beautiful is not the word. They are a photographer’s dream, a fabulous backdrop for those essential shots before you leave for your ceremony and, should anyone need a tranquil spot to calm nerves or escape the hubbub for a few moments, this is the place.
In addition to the stunning surroundings, you will adore the personal touches and perfect service that you receive from the second you step through the door. From delectable breakfasts featuring the best local produce and freshly made biscuits with your morning coffee, to the discrete care and attention you’ll enjoy throughout your stay, this is details done well. Just like Fetcham Park where we count you as one of the family, you’ll feel at home at Broadway Barn from the moment you arrive.
It’s hard to choose a favourite part of Broadway Barn. The light, bright conservatory overlooking the garden is a choice location for beautiful breakfasts, the bedrooms will make you want to kick off your shoes and relax as soon as you open the door and don’t even get us started on the dreamy bathrooms, the fabulous kitchen and the lounges and living rooms where you could sit all night and talk with your nearest and dearest until the sun peeks through the windows.
We’re more than a little bit in love with Broadway Barn and we promise you that once you’re there, you’ll never want to leave. Now, what excuse can we find for another visit…?
