Since eighteen years we have been staying in four different cottages at Heath Farm. It became the favourite place of our daughter who enjoyed the countryside to ramble, to play games on the lawn or to watch TV in the evening with a cosy log fire or to bring her best friend for a longer holiday. Therefore it is not surprising that we chose this perfect setting to celebrate her graduation from Oxford University. We could put up our friends and relatives from far in the same complex, who were impressed as the day guests of this wonderful site despite the dreadful weather on a summer evening.
The cottages are comfortable in every season and weather and well provided with whatever one would wish for to have a perfect holiday. Every time a fresh bunch
of flowers, sweets or cakes awaits us in a very clean surrounding with good
china, fresh linen and towels. A wonderful advantage is that one can have surpluse of the garden produce, herbs for cooking or berries from the vast ground to make jams in the season.
Each time we leave we make plans for another possible stay.
Not only are the cottages located on the edge of the Cotswolds but they are within easy reach of Oxford so if you want a change from the beautiful countryside you can do so. The cottages are very well equipped and walking in the grounds of the farm is delightful.
Since our first visit to Heath Farm some ten years ago, we always think of our breaks at this delightful place whenever we feel a need for peace and rest. A four night stay in Beechnut this week was just what we needed and once again, on our fourth visit to Heath Farm, we were not disappointed.
There is always a warm welcome from Nena and David and their family. We particularly love staying in Beechnut, from its sleep-inducing bedroom with a view of the sheep, goats and goose, the “Moroccan” shower cubicle, to the unmissable log fires! Very convenient for touring the Cotswolds and, we discovered this week, for Stratford-upon-Avon. Not to mention the Walks in the woods and grounds of Heath Farm itself.
We are already looking forward to the next time!
We are from Australia and adore staying at Heath Farm Cottages, for the last five years, we have spent 10 weeks a year in UK visiting our granddaughter. We spend most of our time at Heath Farm. It has become our second home and perfect in every respect.
All the cottages are lovely, providing every comfort, beautifully furnished, all with open fire places. Luxurious bed linen and towels, well equipped kitchens and fresh herbs provided in kitchens. Stunning rural views from every window. The owners are delightful, friendly and most welcoming. Our granddaughter has so enjoyed growing up here, roaming the beautiful grounds, orchards and vegetable gardens.
Perfectly located as a base to explore the beautiful Cotswolds and surrounding districts.
Other guests we meet, are like us, repeat clients, discerning travellers who share our love of these wonderful cottages.
The three of us just spent a lovely week at Heath Farm, we stayed in Cobnut cottage. The cottage was very clean and furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen has everything required should you decide to make breakfast or Sunday lunch. There are some really great views from the windows. We picked Heath farm for good proximity for sightseeing to the North Cotswolds, we picked this cottage as it had the walk-in shower. We really enjoyed exploring the grounds, seeing what wild life we could spot, anything from deer, foxes, rabbits, etc. The owners have given a lot of time and thought about access to the grounds, weather it is well mowed strips of grass/bracken or cleared walkways through the woods, making access very easy for everyone (no stinging nettles). The hosts live on site and are friendly and easy to contact should you require and help/advise.
We stayed for 6 nights at the Beechnut Cottage and thought it was the perfect cozy spot out in the country, with very good proximity for sightseeing to the North Cotswolds towns. The cottage itself is charming, with a bedroom, hallway, bathroom, and sizable living room/kitchen with fireplace. The kitchen is well-outfitted with cookware and utensils so that one could easily cook any meal there. Grocery stores are nearby in Chipping Norton. (This establishment does not provide any meals.) We liked the environmental consciousness promoted by the owners. The grounds are fabulous, so much to explore right there. Awaiting us when we arrived was a luscious "welcome" cake from a nearby bakery. There were also a laundry machine and dryer available for use. There really wasn't enough time to take full advantage of this "home away from home", we would have liked to stay longer!
Stayed at Hazelnut cottage with my fiancee for 3 nights. Loved how cozy and peaceful this place is. If you love peace and quiet in a natural surrounding, you won't regret staying here. The open fire were an added bonus.
