Whether it’s taxi services, restaurants, or places to visit, each cottage includes a welcome pack with lots of useful info. We’re also happy to give you our personal recommendations and our son Guy will be sure to point out which are the best attractions for children!


Welcome hamper

On arrival, you will find a hamper containing a mix of essential goodies including fresh local free range eggs , Cotswold butter, local apple juice, milk, bread, biscuits.


Activities for children

We have a small outdoor play area for children as well as books, games, DVDs (and a WiiU and Xbox in Groves Barn). There is plenty of space to explore but the farm does have an unfenced pond and other hazards so children should be supervised at all times.



Full week or occasional catering can be arranged if booked well in advance of your stay. Ready-prepared home-cooked meals can be delivered to your cottage in advance or a la carte catering provided to order. Contact us for a menu.


Well behaved dogs with considerate owners are welcome in Groves Barn, Old Mill Barn and Boddington Barn (not bed and breakfast rooms), as long as paws are kept off the furniture and out of the bedrooms. A clean dog crate is available if required and services such as dog sitting/walking can be booked if needed.


Special requests

If you’re looking to arrange a special treat while you’re here – from pamper parties and wine tasting to expert tours of local gardens, let us know what you’re after and we’ll do our best to put you in touch with the people who can make it happen.
