“Full of character and a delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012 via mobile

I stayed overnight on business and dined in the restaurant. The bedroom was well-furnished, immaculately clean, and the bed very comfortable. It was like a home from home and I could have stayed for the week! The staff and owner/s couldn't have been more friendly and helpful and dinner in the restaurant was first class! Would I go back? Certainly! Will I recommend to friends? Without doubt!

Never stayed at the hotel but attended a wedding earlier this month and I would just like to say how good it was, the hotel is perfect for an advent and the attention to detail was amazing from start to finish. The food that you normally get at weddings is thrown together after the top table is served but I was on one of the last tables and the food was not just hot with the Lamb rack perfectly cooked but looked at tasted great and the lemon cheese cake was so fresh with a super glaze. All the staff were friendly and helpful at all times a special thanks to the the barman (Gary I think?) for putting up with us all while a little happy. Super place.

This is my second visit to this hotel the first was last year after visiting 'River Cottage HQ' only 20 mins away the rooms are large, clean and simply stunning with fantastic views of the local country side and the hotel grounds. The staff are friendly and nothing was to much trouble and the owner was a delight to talk too he had a real passion for the hotel and great knowledge of the wines. We did not eat the first visit but promised we would be back after seeing the menu and hearing about the home reared pigs and sheep along with fresh eggs from there many chickens, ducks and geese they had free range on the grounds. This visit was even better the staff were again fantastic and the new chef that has now started has the same passion for the business and food that the owner has. They now have an orchard and fresh herb garden and Turkeys coming soon to rear for Chrismas. I would suggest anyone that stay to try the home cured Gravalax top with poached goose egg and lemon mayo its perfect!! Well done to all there we will be back.

A favourite stopover between Cornwall and Suffolk just got even better with a new chef and delicious evening meal. Highly recommended particularly for those of you with dogs - very dog friendly with plenty of walks right outside the front door.

Room Tip: All rooms we have stayed in (four) have been excellent. Large, comfortable, quiet and off the beaten...

My wife and I have stayed at the Farthings on a number of occasions - and we look forward to our next visit soon! It is a lovely small hotel: warm, attractive, very friendly staff and excellent food (much sourced locally and even some fresh from the garden!) Each room is very well appointed and individual; we've stayed in at least four and found them all very comfortable. We find the location really good; set in a very attractive, tranquil village, with interesting places nearby to visit - and, most importantly for us, within easy reach from both the A30 and M5, making it a perfect stop-off when travelling to and from our home in the West Country

Room Tip: All we have stayed in we found really good. We particularly like those with an outlook on the lovel...

Yesterday was my first visit to the Farthings, my company had booked a days meeting room. What a perfect venue, at arrival we were greeted with fresh coffee, tea and freshly baked pastries, all the facilities we need were provided, projector and screen. the coffee flowed, the lunch was lovely and fresh. When we returned to the meeting room for the afternoon stint we were greeted with more fresh coffee, tea and home made biscuits, they had even made wheat and gluten free biscuits for one of our members that has an allergy. Lovely open fires greeted us on a cold day and it had a very homely feel. Not only would I recommend the hotel for meetings I would recommend it to my friends as a great hotel venue
