Barnsley Resort: Luxury Accommodations, Fine Dining, Skeet Shooting and More


Garden and a glimpse of the ruins

For many, Barnsley Resort represents the ultimate in a gorgeous wedding venue with meticulously-maintained grounds, a colorful garden and historic ruins as settings for photographs, the ceremony and the reception. When you add the availability of great catering and plenty of accommodations for guests, you certainly have everything you need.



Inside the ruins

For families, Barnsley is a cozy place to bring people together, stay in comfort, eat amazing food and swap memories and stories around the firepits, while marshmallows roast for s’mores in the evening.

For sports enthusiasts, Barnsley represents a first-class partnership with Beretta and their exceptional guns for skeet-shooting and target practice. Safety is foremost on the minds of the instructors who make it a top priority for those who come to hone their skills.

If golf is your preference, how about a Jim Fazio designed course encompassing 378 acres?

You might also choose horseback riding, disc golf, hiking, biking or boating on the lake. It is easy to see that all these possibilities make Barnsley a great place for a corporate retreat. Be sure to tell your boss about it. 😊



For a girls getaway, the spa is a blissful indulgence, and the massages, body treatments, sauna, steam room and facials are designed to erase all your cares and stresses.



Woodlands Grill

Dining is exceptional. Woodlands Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while the Rice House is only open for dinner Thursdays through Saturdays.

Accommodations at Barnsley Resort can be found in the 55-room inn and in the cottages and estate cottages with varying configurations and number of guests. The inn was recently added to the property. The cottages all vary in style and colors making the grounds feel more like an upscale neighborhood than a resort.


Probably my favorite things on the property were the fire pits surrounded by Adirondeck chairs and the complimentary ingredients provided for s’mores.


In the interest of full disclosure, I haven’t YET had an opportunity to spend a night or a weekend at Barnsley, but I did see the accommodations firsthand, walk the grounds, explore the ruins, visit the shooting stand and enjoy a fantastic brunch at Woodlands Grill. I will be gently hinting at this as a place to celebrate a special occasion wtih my Silver Fox in the near future. 😊



I believe you’ll enjoy a stay at Barnsley Resort very much. #adairsville #georgia #resort #golf #skeetshooting #weddingvenue #cozy #luxury
