"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!

"Great hen party weekend in a fab place"
I just wanted to say what a fantastic house this is. There was a large group of us for my hen weekend (all ages). The house didnt disapoint from the moment we walked in. All rooms were to high specification and the added bonus of such a hot weekend made it the perfect hen weekend.
The owners were fantastic and were always at the end of the phone/email for any queries.
We all had a great time and hopefully we will have another reason to celebrate soon so we can return. I would definately recommend Horspool Farm for any large groups of family/friends. You wont be disapointed. Thank you :)
Thank you for taking the time to post your opinion of your stay with us. We wish you all the very best in your newly married life and hope that you will find an excuse to visit us again. It was an utmost pleasure helping you with your booking from start to finish. We are very fortunate to welcome such a gracious and respectful Guest.

"A Millionaire's Lifestyle..........for 3 days at least!"
WOWEEEEEEE! What a place, what an amazing place!! Whatever I write in this review will not do it justive, this place has to be seen to be believed. We visited Horspool Farm last weekend (12th April). … More
Thank you for taking the time to detail your stay with us,in such a comprehensive manner.We were gratified to have welcomed such cordial Guests.In response to your suggestions. We do not allow Smoking in the house and often our Guests smoke in the Courtyard. Ashtrays are available for your use.In reply about the awning, we do provide outdoor umbrellas for the table and barbecue, to protect against light rain. This is detailed in our welcome file. However, I apologize if this was not made more clear for you, during your stay. We are currently in the process of upgrading the Property, to include adding a Pool Table and a full Sky Package (including sports and movies). Previously when the property had Sky, we had a very mixed response, especially from our Female Guests, asking "can we switch off the channels during a family stay", as it was not always popular !We do hope to welcome you again to Horspool Farm in the future.

Thank you for your review. We have been told its difficult to get out of the pool several times,as the water is so warm. Im pleased that you and your Party enjoyed their time at the Property, often people comment how the pictures of the house and the pool do not do it justice.We hope that you can find an excuse to visit us again soon !

"the best weekend away for a large group"
Once my brother decided he wanted a large group of people (24) for his stag do, a weekend away and a awesome house/mansion was the way forward. We found the house on trip advisor and couldn't of had a more brilliant, fun weekend. As a house it is simply stunning and huge! With 24 lads in it didn't not feel small. The pool/gym area was excellent, the several lounges made it ideal for groups of people to socialise, hooking up a ps3 (we had brought) to one of the huge flat screen TVs provided great entertainment.
The facilities were well used and in particularly the kitchen was perfect for catering for a lot of people. The house is located well away from other buildings so sound/noise was no issue. Centre of Nottingham was only 30mins by taxi and a local karting track 20mins away.
We would definitely consider staying again, was beyond all our expectations. The Owner was very easy to deal with and was very helpful with extra things that we required. The Manager was also on hand when we had a small issue with extra bedding.
Superb weekend, cant recommend this enough. If in doubt, book it!
Thank you for your kind review. All to often a large group and particularly a Stag Do,are unfortunately labeled as not welcome. I say this, as often the first sentence of their enquiry is the question,"do you accept all boy groups?".We are privileged to have had visit us, such a conscientious group of Guys,we or they were fortunate to have Chris head their booking.What ever the answer is, My Son and I hope to welcome you all back in the future.
