"Picture perfect weekend away"
We had a wonderful stay at Yew Tree Farmhouse, made even better by a good spell of weather, although it's the kind of house which you would happily lock yourself away in and stay by the fire.
We were all lost for words when we arrived. The location is beautiful and the house has a lovely charm which made us all feel like we at a home away from home. The house is very spacious and there isn't a single bedroom where you feel someone has drawn the short straw. The kitchen is great for preparing large feasts with an Aga, gas hob and electric oven too! There's also good supply of crockery, glasses, cookware and a much needed dishwasher.
The owners were fantastic with helping us book our stay and had great recommendations for local things to do. They have their own excellent website with all the vital info.
I really recommend this property for large groups and families.

"A perfect house for a country weekend."
A very comfortable house to stay in. It is well furnished without being fussy, and there is plenty of room for a large group of friends and their dogs. Once the fires are lit, it feels very homely and it,s very easy to settle in for the evening. Everyone in my group loved the house.

"Wonderful house, plenty of space, perfect location for long walks"
We booked this weekend for a birthday celebration on the first weekend in December, and the house was perfect for our four families (14 in total plus a labrador). The 6 teenagers had the top floor, with the adults enjoying the space in the lovely bedrooms. We were all able to sit down to eat together in the dining room, and chill out on the comfy sofas in front of the log fire. The kids had a ball - with table tennis in the barn, and enough nooks and crannies for a great game of sardines! From the house we were able to do lovely walks around the Cotswold countryside, with pubs on route. A fantastic weekend away!

"Perfect location, atmosphere & farmhouse!"
I booked Yew Tree farmhouse for my sister's hen weekend and there were 16 of us altogether. We spent a lot of time at the house with the log fires going in each room, and there was always enough room for everyone to chill out together. The house is absolutely stunning, the garden is huge and beautiful and my sister had the best weekend ever! (her words) I was so pleased with Fergus's assistance from the day I enquired about it to the moment we set off! So I recommend this farmhouse for Hen parties, family holidays, and couples! I will definitely be booking again - perhaps in the Summer so we can take advantage of the beautiful garden and BBQ! Thanks again for all your help Fergus & Pippa!

"True English experience in a fantastic setting."
Yew Tree Farmhouse was our HOME for 8 weeks. We had teenagers, our married children, grandchildren and friends coming and going while we were there. They all loved it. The home was spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms and kitchen were all updated and great. We loved staying in the true English countryside away from London yet with access to the whole country easily. Right in the Cotswolds, close to Bath, centrally located with the Swindon Train station just 15 min. away. A truly memorable home for a once in a lifetime trip.

"A beautiful house in an amazing setting!"
I rented this property for a special birthday, with both family, friends and dogs. I couldn't have been happier with the house, it really is stunning. Everything was as it was described. The rooms are a lot bigger than expected. I had 16 in the house and it was never too crowded, everyone could have some space of their own. The kitchen is well laid out and is well stocked with kitchen ware. I found the rooms all very clean with lovely bedding and towels. It was November when i rented the property and it certainly was never cold.
The outside space is great for a lot of cars and the gardens lovely. Even the full size ping pong table was put to good use.
The local pub, The Jolly Tar, couldn't have been more accommodating, keeping the pub open for a late lunch for myself and friends. They also kindly found us a supplier for logs, who delivered. The Swan at Southrop is well worth a visit, the food is fantastic and a very pretty village.
I found the whole experience fantastic. The owner, Fergus, couldn't have been more helpful. My friends and family all agreed with myself and said what a great place it was.
