Upper Wood End Farm Holiday Cottage No. 1
Upper Wood End Farm Cottage
Upper Wood End Farm Cottage No 1. - once I found it ( use owners directions not Sat Nov Postcode ) was all I could wish for for a nice peaceful stay. Cottage a bit small but very well equipped - Central Heating very good - also shower good - two things that were very necessary in a snowy March. Wi Fi easy to use - in fact everything at this cottage was all I could wish for. Rita very helpful but not obtrusive - just wish I could have stayed longer. …

Little Oak Barn, self catering accomodation in beautiful peaceful surroundings
A good stay
We had a good and comfortable stay here. It is well situated for visiting local towns and villages . The property owners were really nice, and helped with any questions we had about the local area. They also provided some very good honey produced here, and some fresh eggs from there own chickens. An excellent place to relax, with good walks and plenty of wildlife about, including deer. It was a shame that the booking agent did not inform the owners that we were bringing our dog, but they said they didn't object to a well behaved dog staying. We are looking forward to visiting there again, maybe next year if all goes well. …
The Barn Bunk Room - Group Accommodation Outfields
A bit grubby but great hosts
Location was great and facilities were ok. I needed to re wash everything in the kitchen before using as so dirty and greasy (most likely from previous guests). I know it's a barn but didn't expect so many flys and thick cobwebs, and also bird pooh over the sofas.Beds are seriously needing updating some so many springs out. However , the hosts were excellent and welcoming, the garden was huge with lots of tables, the chandeliers in the bedroom are a great touch. For a weekend away with a group it was good and would recommend for that purpose. …
Clive's Cottage, Lakeside Colmworth Golf Course
Delightful and relaxing
We stayed 16 nights and enjoyed it immensely. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, immediately responding to any requests. We had a large family lunch one day and asked for more chairs. The next thing we knew an extra barbeque table and six chairs appeared. A little fenced garden made it child safe. The golf course was excellent and we were able to borrow clubs. There is a good coffee shop on site and a top class pub nearby for meals. We loved the countryside. The house was very clean and the bedrooms spacious. We found the fridge a bit small as there were no fittings inside the door, but this did not mar our stay. We would certainly go there again. …
