    “The farmhouse provided a near perfect setting for a gathering of friends to celebrate a big birthday and the arrival of 2020.”

    ...

    The bedrooms and bathrooms were good; the lounge and snug, with their wood burners, very welcoming; the two kitchens great for all the cooking; the dining room ideal for the big meals; and the games room was fun. Anticipating that a farmhouse in winter might be a tad chilly, we came with ample woollen jumpers, etc. Not needed - it was a lovely warm house throughout (once we'd mastered the heating). The Aga provided more than enough heat for the main kitchen, which became the focal point for breakfasts. The entrance "porch" was an excellent large space for muddy boots and all our jackets. The location of the property meant we did a variety of lovely walks all around us, without any need to get in our cars. And the town was a short walk away for the occasions we needed it, which weren't many. Minor less positives... As noted by others, the property is on a busy road and so the crossing of it to get to the side of the road with the pavement requires patience and care. And there is some noise from the road to be heard. The welcome basket consisted of a packet of chocolate biscuits and a packet of shortbread biscuits. I'd suggest that's embarrassing for a group of 16 adults to be presented with, especially given the cost of the rental. There's lots of kitchen equipment, but it needs to be searched out. There didn't appear to be any order to where it was stored. More helpful instructions for the central heating would be useful. We weren't to know that apparently the housekeeper had turned down a thermostat such that the heating to one section of the vast property wasn't coming on. If you need a TV, which we didn't, then the only one downstairs is too small even for the snug.

    Many thanks for your feedback on South Hill Farmhouse, we take all feedback seriously. We are very sorry for the issues that arised during your stay. We endeavour to resolve all problems as soon as possible. We are looking into everything that was raised with the aim to resolve these to ensure that future guests have an enjoyable and comfortable stay. Owner relations

The owners have ensured that all elements for a large party have been considered: a large Dining Room , vast Living Room and a separate games room make it perfect for a relaxing and enjoyable break.

The house is located on the Fosse Way, approx 5 mins from the heart of the heart of the market town of Stow on the Wold.

The quality touches are evident throughout - Farrow and Ball colours, Robert Welch cutlery and Denby crockery all add to the appeal of this large holiday home.

An excellent choice for a memorable get-together.

About the location

STOW-ON-THE-WOLD

Bourton-on-the-Water 4 miles; Stratford upon Avon 15 miles.

The highest town in the Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises olde worlde England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly Farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antique shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of Stow, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close to the town. Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds' as the River Windrush runs through the centre, lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most popular Cotswold villages. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are all within easy reach and make a great day out. Cheltenham (20 miles away) is, architecturally, the most complete regency town in England. A spa town with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse-racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. At other times of year, it is host to literature, jazz, classical music, science and food and drink festivals. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called 'The City of Dreaming Spires’ has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also within easy reach, making Stow-on-the-Wold an ideal base.
