"Worth every penny....and more!!"

We have been renting properties for over a decade and without a doubt this is the best. The owners are extremely considerate...even providing milk, tea, coffee and refreshments...which is very welcome after a journey. The property is immaculately clean and well maintained, fully deserving numerous awards it has received. The décor of the house is beautifully modern yet still cosy and comfortable..the pictures just don't do it justice. It is huge enough to sleep 25 people without being cramped. The management of the property is slick with excellent communication, the owners are available on site when needed. We will definitely be recommending this property to friends...but more importantly we hope to return next year for another relaxing break. Thank you once again to Tina and Luke.

Thank you for taking the time to place your review. Your kind comments are welcomed and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

"This house is incredible"

Everything about Horspool Farm is absolutely perfect. We booked as a group of 25 for a hen party and it couldn't have suited us more. There is so much space! The house is kept in great condition and nicely furnished. The pool and jacuzzi are great too! The booking process was so easy and any queries both before and during our stay were dealt with quickly. I would have no hesitation in recommending this house to anyone. I didn't want to leave and can't wait to find an excuse to go back.

"Amazing location and house! Loads of open space but also enough rooms to retreat for down time when needed :)"

Just returned from a fantastic stay with 15 friends for a very special girls 40th Birthday. Our adventure began with dropping off most cars at Hoorspool and taking a taxi to The pub/restaurant was lovely we had great service and food. We even had our own private dining room. And with a bunch if gaggling, loud, excited girls....this made at lot of sense:) We returned to Horspool by Taxi - must mention Mich the young taxi driver - what a lovely young man! and awaited our food delivery that arrived promptly as planned:). This place is amazing, spacious and spotless- following a bad experience when we hired a manor last year and spent 3 hours cleaning and changing beading before we could relax!!...this place was a dream. We have had an amazing time drinking, eating, laughing, dancing, chilling and in great company. With an indoor pool, pool table, a jacuzzi, sound system, tvs in most rooms and books and dvds there is everything you need. The welcome pack was also fab and a plenty from dishwasher tabs, black bags, cleaning sprays, foil, tea, coffee, squash & chocolate. Some of the group ventured for a walk around the beautiful countryside. And unfortunately arrived at local pub that was closed! to much dismay! :) What a wonderful time had by spacious,and as above spotlessly clean. I know people often say it s the people/company that make the break.....but Horspool just made it amazing!!. So many wonderful memories and would definitely recommend for groups, large families etc. Only shame for us is that we could not enjoy the beautiful courtyard - due to the weather/time of year- however we still had a shamazing time!. Vanessa

Thank you for your kind Review. It was our utmost pleasure to have you as Guests. We look forward to hopefully welcoming you again.

"Pretty Close to Paradise!"

19 adults, 1 infant & 1 dog had the most incredible long weekend @ Horspool Farm. Celebrating my 30th birthday I wanted to find the right venue for my large number of guests to mark this special occasion. Horspool Farm offers everything I wanted & so much more. A truly stunning Kitchen area fit enough for any Chef, 2 stylish & comfortable living areas, clean bathrooms, incredible decor, a relaxing Jacuzzi, a Swimming Pool that we just couldn't get out of & to top it off the most amazing Countryside to walk & lose yourself within. My advice if you are reading this review..... Read it quickly & book yourself into Horspool!!! Tina has been amazing helping me book in my stay there in a formal, honest & professional manner & Luke was great in welcoming us to the house & being our point of contact during our stay. All of us have agreed to go back to Horspool for yet another Celebration & I just hope it isn't too long until we return.

"Perfect venue for a Hen weekend"

Horspool is an amazing house in beautiful surroundings. The size and various facilities make it perfect for a hen weekend, sleeping 25 and with jacuzzi and pool as well as many different lounge areas. I would recommend a stay here to anyone! The owner and property manager do everything to help you and ensure your stay is perfect. 10/10

"magical birthday experience"

Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your lovely guests.We look forward to your next stay with us.

"An exeptionally special place with wonderful facilities and space."

We arrived to a spotlessly clean house, which our family of 17 thoroughly enjoyed exploring. We had a reassuring visit from the manager to see if we were happy with everything and if we needed any explanations for cookers etc. The location was lovely, and beautifully secluded and with views that are to die for. The gardens are lovely and very well cared for, unfortunately we were unable to enjoy them being that January is not the best weather to sit out in, but we could imagine it would be wonderful sitting out with a glass of wine in the pretty quadrangle courtyard or outside under the huge willow tree. The many doors made for very good access to these areas. The huge utility room made for easy storage of coats, dogs towels and easy for 'drying off' dogs, bottles of beer, wine, and children's drinks, though there would have been masses of room in the kitchen for bottles etc. The kitchen with masses of workspace, the boiling/chilled water tap (still being missed!), bottle chilling cabernet, steam oven. big fridge/freezers all made of easy catering The very large bed rooms were extremely comfortable, bathrooms and shower room most convenient. I wouldn't be able to say what I liked best of all because it was ALL so good. But to say that it was the absolutely ideal place for people like us who have a family of 17 (7 grandchildren) and who want to spend a few days altogether it simply could not have been better. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank the owners for providing such an exception place for us all to stay.

It was our utmost pleasure to welcome such a lovely family to our Property. Thank you for your Review. Please visit us again soon. Your Zip Tap is waiting ! Regards, Tina Polak

"Absolutely fantastic and dreamy facility"

This converted farmhouse is absolutely breathtaking when you walk into the property. Not only that but it is maintained so well, we couldn't believe how neat, tidy and clean the whole site was kept. The swimming pool was a favourite as well as the outside seating area. I think if you wanted to you could possible have fit our whole party of 18 guests into one of the showers. With a large group it was especially important to be able to have space and this is found at Horspool Farm in abundance so if you wanted some quiet time this was easily found due to the size of the property. As for Tina and Luke's personal support and assistance throughout the booking as well as during our stay, well it's second to none and you couldn't ask for any more. All of our guests want to visit the farm again at some point.

What a fantastic place to spend my Hen weekend!! The house is amazing with all the top gadgets (we particularly liked the boiling water tap!) and we were very well looked after. I hope I get to stay again very soon!

Thank you for your Review. It was an enjoyable experience having you and your lovely guests at the Property. We hope that you will visit with us again.

"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.
