AA Four Star Guest House Accommodation

Situated in the heart of the pretty little village of Fonthill Bishop, on the historically fascinating yet modern working Fonthill Estate, The Riverbarn is an award winning Restaurant and Guest House .

The Granary

Just a three minute stroll from The Riverbarn, The Granary offers stunning, high quality, flexible accommodation. The thatched barn was beautifully restored in the Summer of 2016, with wooden floors throughout and has a large sitting area with a comfy sofa and armchairs. At one end of the barn there is a screened off bedroom area with a Hypnos super king bed. 100% cotton sheets, a cosy duvet and throw provide that touch of luxury.

At the other end further loft accommodation, with a single bed and sofa bed, offers additional flexibility. A Smart TV and free WiFi are included. There is an en suite shower room with ‘Natur’ quality products by Caroline Henry of Bath. A kitchen area has a Nespresso machine, toaster, kettle and fridge with complementary produce on hand to welcome our guests upon arrival. Outside The Granary there is a gravelled area and private off road parking for two cars. Please talk to us if a well behaved dog is a much loved member of the family and doesn’t want to be left behind!

The Riverbarn

Our other accommodation is to be found adjacent to The Riverbarn in another converted barn which offers two double rooms and a twin bedded room. [‘Woodlands’ – Large Double Room, ‘Garden View’ – Smaller Double Room & ‘Riverside’ – Twin Room] Adults are preferred. Children over 8 welcome. Guests are given their key upon arrival and can come and go as they please. Private parking space is provided on a gravelled area next to your room.


Breakfast is served in the adjacent Riverbarn Restaurant and is included in the price of your room. The full choice is available using the very best locally sourced ingredients. We even grow some garden produce ourselves and with other members of the village we keep a number of pigs from time to time!
