We stayed for my birthday and it was the perfect home for the weekend. It has s lovely warm and welcoming feel - beautiful bedrooms and fantastic communal area that are perfect for a special meal or get together. There is plenty of outdoor space and stunning views. I couldn't recommend this cottage enough - we loved it so much we didn't want to leave.
It has everything you could ever think of needing there and Ali was really helpful at recommendation for activities and places to eat.
Recently had a wonderful few days with the family at Cothill farm. A beautiful spot in a beautiful part of the country. For our group of 10 the Barn was spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Would enthusiastically recommend!
Lovely barn conversion. Lots of room and a beautiful location. Interesting lay out with some nice touches. Loved the big fire pit and space for our dog. Thanks Ali.
This barn is perfect for a family / friends get-togethers. Setting is perfect, beautifully furnished & equipped with everything you'd ever need, including stuff you don't get in other self catering places - dishwasher tablets, washing powder, scourer, tea towels, dog stuff etc etc. Bedding, towels, showers all great quality. Kitchen can easily feed a banquet with crockery, equipment and utensils.
Its quite remote, so be prepared to yomp, or drive to anywhere. The 2 local pubs The Mill (30 mins walk downhill, 50 mins estimate walk back uphill, as we sent a runner to get the car !! ), and The Bridge 1 hour walk SAS style by 3 fit blokes; unknown duration for the return, but at least its downhill, after the draft scrumpy !!
Great touches, like the firepit, BBQ, gardens with view, hammock etc make it great for kids and dogs.
Tip for the firepit - take a saw with you, so you can gather dead wood and cut to size, as the wood provided isn't sufficient for a decent fire.
After a long journey from Kent we were instantly impressed with the location and stunning scenery surrounding the barn. Ali kindly took delivery of our Sainsbury's delivery and even packed or things away-thank you!
The barn fitted our two families perfectly - 4 adults, 5 kids (3-8) + baby. The two main bedrooms were spacious and interesting with high ceilings. One with a lovely roll top bath and one with a brilliant shower. Ours had a raised area perfect for viewing the countryside first thing in the morning. Downstairs the kids started in a twin and double (both great ensuites) plus a snug with sofa bed-worked perfectly!
Furnished with a well curated mix of antiques and vintage items as well as some great enamel signs from the local area. Look out for the ducks (real ones and plastics ones!).
The heating and hot water was modern and never let us down. The kitchen had everything needed plus more worth a beautiful table which fitted 16 of us!
Ali was great- as well as the fantastic job she did with our shopping our welcome basket of food was a lovely treat.
We could not find anything to fault this well thought out and perfectly situated barn conversion.
I would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit a fantastic location.
There is a definite 'wow' factor to this property. From its fabulous location on the top of a hill with lovely views and walks from the door, to the imaginative way the barn has been converted and furnished to provide high quality living and sleeping accommodation for all those staying, it is really quite special.
It particularly suited our party with a mixture of ground floor and upstairs bedrooms all with their own ensuites, and a lovely big (and well-fenced) garden for our dog to run around in. The owner, Ali, was very welcoming and helpful.
We all had a totally relaxing time and none of us wanted to come home.
We stayed in the Stable at Cothill Farm for a few days in March. The Stable had every amenity we could ask for. Fully equipped kitchen including fridge/freezer, dish cloths, tea towels, tea/coffee/sugar etc, clingfilm, foil & washing up liquid (all things that most self-catering accommodation does not provide. A washing machine & tumble drier were in a separate annex. Lots of books and DVDs plus a TV in the master bedroom. Beautiful views. A welcome pack of bread, milk, homemade jams, pickles & eggs from the farm were left in the kitchen to greet us plus a basket of logs for the woodburner was provided. Beautifully furnished. Lovely bathroom & shower room with towels and loo rolls provided. The Shepherds hut outside in the garden is a lovely touch. If there was one tiny criticism it would be that we felt there should be towel rails in the bathrooms. Would highly recommend.
