“Amazing place”
Reviewed 9 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This is a first class cottage. There is everything you need, plus, to make your stay comfortable and relaxing, from the amazing welcome pack to ample hot water for baths & showers everything was top notch.
The beds were very comfy and it is in a very quiet setting ensuring a good nights sleep.
There are also a good selection of eating places nearby.
Highly recommended.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 28 April 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Far Wicken Hall is located on a family farm near Milnrow. It's quiet and surrounded by beautiful countryside. My family and I stayed there for about three weeks this year. The cottage itself is really nicely appointed and maintained with all modern conveniences. We were particularly struck with both how big and how nice the bathrooms are. The cottage is large and spacious with three bedrooms, two of which had two single beds in them, so my family of two adults and three children were very comfortable. Fiona puts an enormous amount of care into every detail and it shows. And both Fiona and Andrew could not have been kinder or more considerate or more reasonable and easy to work with. This was such a breath of fresh air following a negative experience we had a few years ago with another landlady near Oxford. If we ever go back to the area as a family, we will stay at Far Wicken Hall again without a second thought. Lovely place and lovely people.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Stayed for a long weekend with our two young children (2.5yrs and 6mths) and we had a superb time. The cottage is outstanding with lots of space, a lovely big kitchen and lounge as well as 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The hosts were amazing and laid out a lovely welcoming tea which was totally unexpected but thoroughly appreciated after the long drive. And to top it all off our son loved watching the sheep from his bedroom window. We will definitely be back!!

“Missing Far Wicken Hall!”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Just returned from 3 fabulous weeks at Far Wicken Hall. The accommodation in itself is superb, spacious, spotlessly clean with every facility you could need. Comfortable beds and gorgeous bed linen. The bathrooms are beautiful and the shower in the main bathroom is out of this
world! Having such a spacious kitchen and dining table made cooking and meal times an absolute pleasure. Fiona made myself,my husband and three children feel very welcome and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble for her. It was particularly kind of her to take my children to see and feed some of the animals (rabbits, guinea pig and chickens)
The welcome pack she provided on our arrival was extensive and included some home made cakes and jam, and goodies for the children,
amongst lots of other
things. Such a nice touch

Thank You Fiona for making our holiday extra special, we will definitely be back again next Summer!
