“Lovely family stay”
Reviewed 7 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Just back from a wonderful stay at Heath Farm. So much care and attention to the cottage (Walnut) and the grounds. Plenty of space for our children to play football, on the trampoline and even a stage! Mon made us feel very welcome. We will be booking again for the August bank holiday. Also very easy access to Soho Farmhouse which is a plus for members. Thanks for a great weekend.

HI Sian
Thank you so much for the great review. We're very happy that you had such a wonderful time and that we made you feel at home. We get great pleasure in knowing our guests appreciate the high levels of care, craftsmanship and attention to detail we put into the cottages and the farm. It's great to see facilities like the trampoline and stage get used by the children that visit too. I'll try and get a goal ordered ready for you next visit!
Kind Regards
Mon

“A perfect, serene cocoon”
Reviewed 8 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

This property is stunning and has all the comforts of home. I spend my stay in "Hazelnut" and I couldn't be happier.

The cottage was clean and well maintained and I was able to opt for hypoallergenic bedding options too. The kitchen was well equipped and large (much larger then in other self-catering accommodation I have used).

The farm itself is beautiful and despite the cold weather (less than 10 degrees most days) it was lovely to walk around and utilise the rambling maps provided by David and Nena in the welcome book for the cottage.

I can also provide a big thumbs up for the plumbing at this property. I was lovely to have great water pressure in the shower and to be able to enjoy fresh spring water straight from the tap.

The Barbours (owners) made me feel very welcome and safe and it was nice to be able to say good morning when you passed in the courtyard. They are very attentive without being obtrusive. It was also nice to meet and pat Poppy (the dog) while I was away from my furry friend.

I've already recommended this location to friends and family and will certainly consider staying in this property for my next UK visit.

Dear Emma. Thank you so much for the glowing review. It's fantastic to know we've ticked all the boxes and the experience surpassed the expectations. We take great pride in making sure we've considered and anticipated our guests needs. As much attention is given not only in the interiors, from power showers, fresh spring water and open fireplaces but also the extensive grounds. We hope you loved the courtyard, especially the archway looking down to the pond. It was great to see one of our guests using the chiminea whist the sun set sat in the archway. We look forward to seeing you and your friends for a few days back at Heath Farm.

“Perfect place to relax and enjoy the countryside”
Reviewed 6 October 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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.

“Wonderful holiday cottages in an easily accessible location”
Reviewed 28 September 2017 for a stay in October 2015

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.

“A place of calm and rest”
Reviewed 27 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

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!

Thank you so much for your glowing review of Heath Farm and Beechnut Cottage. Consistency is the key in making sure returning guests like yourselves enjoy each and every stay here. One of our catchphrases coined by Nena was "in the middle of nowhere yet on the edge of everything", it's reassuring to know that even yourselves as fourth time returning guests can find Nena's phrase to be so true! There's such a wealth of nearby attractions that there's always something new to discover. We're also very happy that you managed to make use of our grounds which are always a please to explore no matter the season. We look forward to seeing you again!

“Home Away from Home”
Reviewed 4 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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.

Dear Jenny,
Thank you for your lovely, detailed review. It is so heart warming to hear you consider Heath Farm your second home. We enjoy having such appreciative guests as yourselves and to have had the opportunity to get to know you over time. We love seeing your grand daughter (and now also your grandson) exploring and playing in the grounds with her obvious love of nature.
We think you have stayed in all the cottages over the years so you are in the perfect position to know what they are all like! Thank you for sharing your descriptions of the cottages and your experiences here at Heath Farm.
We very much look forward to seeing you all again.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 20 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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.
