"Much needed tranquil break"
We spent a number of days at the incredible Horspool Farm, the farm is situated in an ideal location to create an atmosphere where you can switch off and unwind, Bleasby is very charming and the residents are extremely hospitable and welcoming.
The farmhouse is very clean and well maintained, space and room it has in abundance. Plenty of quiet corners to read a book and unwind, we made full use of the Jacuzzi and pool table and swimming pool.
On arrival we had a lovely hand written card from Tina and 2 bottles of wine and chocolates from a local winery. Much to my delight when we booked we were confirmed to arrive at 4pm but were notified we could arrive at 1pm much to my delight and able to make more of our extended break.
Luke and Laura were very helpful and friendly and ensured any questions or concerns were answered quickly and with efficiently. Not only have we been able to rest I feel we have made some friends In Bleasby. Thank you so much... Highly recommended.
Thank you for taking the time to write a detailed review of your stay with us. We where unsure if you had stayed, except for the pictures that you had taken, as the house was left almost untouched. It is a great honour to have welcomed you and it was inspiring to hear your views about the area. We work closely with local Companies and your feed back will be passed on and I can assure you appreciated. We do hope that you will join us again for a tranquil break in the future,with your extended family and Guests.

"If you want the best, this is it."
This house is fabulous. Fab en-suite bedrooms. Fab sitting rooms. Fab kitchen. Everything you could need to self cater in style. Swimming pool and jacuzzie, warm and wonderful. A very high-end, professional set up.
This is a very special venue for a very special occasion. If you want the best, this is well worth saving up for.
NB: Question on disability later in this review with only yes or no answers. There are a couple of internal steps to negotiate to get to et al, the master bedroom suite. The owners would probably put a ramp in if one was needed for a wheelchair. Other disabilities, quite a large curving staircase to negotiate to get to upstairs bedrooms. There are 3 bedrooms downstairs though which are lovely.
Thank you for highlighting your thoughts with your review about the Property. We welcome and always cater for all Guests needs and you are correct, we do provide a ramp for those less able.Very pleased to know, that again, we exceeded our Guests expectations.Please visit again soon.

"Beautiful property with fantastic facilities."
Horspool Farm is a huge and beautiful property which I highly recommend. We visited as 23 hens and it was completely perfect for our needs. It is furnished to an extremely high standard with amazing facilities. Jamie and Luke were very helpful and answered all our queries very promptly and efficiently. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and I hope to visit again. The only slight problem we had was that the ovens are not really big enough to deal with cooking for large numbers.
Thank you for your kind review. We are constantly upgrading and accept any recommendations by our guests.Although we have 2 combination ovens,a steam oven and 2 George Foreman 10 portion grills,we are currently in the process of adding an additional combination oven in the kitchen. We hope to welcome you and your lovely guests again!
