  • "WOW! The property was beautiful and laid out excellently."

    Everything was super clean and the farm itself was idyllic. Wild flowers, insects, red kites, buzzards, hares, deer and a fox all seen by day 2. Martin supplied some yummy eggs on arrival which we really enjoyed. Close to a lot of National Trust properties, Bath, Avebury. Also visited Slimbridge on the way back to Lancashire. The New Inn in the village can also be recommended for good, home cooked food and a warm welcome. A perfect holiday in a perfect cottage.

  • "We found the property very spacious and beautifully furnished."

    the beds are very comfortable ,and the shower rooms very nice indeed. It was great to watch the cows with their calves. Martin was very friendly and welcoming and we felt at home there. A very peaceful location....thank you!

    Hello Pamela. Many thanks for your glowing review. You arrived the week after the cows were let out of the barn for the summer so they are full of energy with the calves bouncing around like baby lambs. We really enjoy welcoming everyone to the farm so really glad you felt at home with us. Hope to see you again. Martin Property Owner

  • "Great property in a lovely setting."

    All the fittings are of a very high quality. Owners very responsive and helpful. There is EV charging which was good for me. Its close to lots of lovely places. Can recommend the New Inn in the village just a short walk away, good food and drink in a friendly setting. All in all we had a fantastic few days there.

    Hi Kevin. It was great to meet you and thank you for your glowing review. We hope to see you again if you’re holidaying in the area again. Martin Property Owner

  • "Beautiful setting with a very modern, clean and tasteful interior."

    Very quiet at night and really comfortable beds and fantastic shower. Fresh eggs were appreciated. Only suggestions I would have is to maybe have a few stocks of thing one usually finds in self-catering places e.g. cling film, shower gel.... Also, perhaps better to have outdoor seating in a different area, as too many flies at the back of the property and it lacks the evening sun. I took a chair to the front of the property, which was a perfect spot.

    Hello Eileen. Many thanks for the review. It's great to read that you found the setting beautiful and peaceful with all mod-cons. Thank you for the tip ref the furniture. You're welcome to move the furnutre around the garden to follow the sun. The sun is still quite low in the sky in mid april however we find that in the summer months the area to the back of the property is a real sun trap. Being a farm it's best to make friends with all the animals on arrival - and that includes those of the pesky flying variety that are attracted to farm life. We hope to see you again sometime.

  • "Upon arrival we were shocked at just how nice the Hen house was."

    Everything was immaculate & it was very clean from top to bottom. They have everything you could imagine & everything was of high end quality (far more than we were expecting). The place was warm with thermostats in EVERY room & the 2 en-suite shower bathrooms were amazing. Every need was catered for & the sofa's & bed's were very comfortable. Wouldn't hesitate to go stay again & just sorry we weren't able to stay longer. Thank you

    Flies everywhere not dealt with unless you complain Nothing to tell you how the property works Nice place just no thought for the customers who stay there Martin was very helpful but lthings needed sorting out before you arrive

    Thank you, Mr Graham, for taking the time to review your break away with us this weekend. It is a shame that your personal experience is in such contrast to other reviews and the experiences enjoyed by others. We are a working organic farm living and working amongst our livestock. We really enjoy the privilege we have of being able to welcome people of all backgrounds and walks of life to stay and immerse themselves in the experiences and opportunities of farm life that are entirely different to what they may be accustomed to at home during their holiday with us. Part of the joys of living in the country and life on a farm is the wide variety of ‘visitors’ that arrive by air or foot entirely at odds to life in a town or city. In addition to our Organic Chickens & Cattle, many other animals have chosen Nables Farm as their home also. These include Deer, Hares & Rabbits that can be seen grazing the gardens and fields (much to the announce of our gardener) along with birds of prey, butterflies, bumblebees and yes, flies over the summer months. Farm life is an ecosystem for all and being an Organic farm, we are passionate about being a home for nature as nature intended. We believe we are merely custodians living amongst many other animals that also call the farm home. That said, we appreciate not everyone is as comfortable with all aspects of farm life as others may be regardless of how expected it may be to the prepared traveller. Therefore, we do provide either fly nets on external doors and/or voiles on windows to allow air to circulate during warmer weather in properties that do not have built in air ventilation systems. On this occasion we also went out and purchased fans for your bedrooms to further help with the process and alleviate your persistent concerns. Regarding instructions on how to use equipment within the properties we would like to believe we have purchased items that are fairly user friendly. We also like our visitors to feel at home and feel as if they are part of the farm family whilst here and not shut away in a generic chain hotel. Therefore, we encourage chats, conversations and questions about farm life, visits to see the chickens as well as more mundane questions as to appliances should anyone need any assistance in how to operate them. As you are aware I am only a text or phone call away and appear if by magic from nowhere within minutes. As mentioned above we are sorry if your personal experience did not match that of what we aim to deliver. We do however feel that nothing was out of the ordinary in what we provide nor the make up of the farm for a late summer break. We would of course be more than happy to welcome you back for a return visit and convince your of the pleasures of the countryside, but may I suggest a spring or autumn break when the joys of nature are more subdued and in line with your prior imagery of farm life. Kind regards - Martin & Andrew. Property Owner

    Offering two good size bedrooms with really modern bathrooms. The owner was really friendly and provided fresh eggs and good advise to where to visit. The property is located in a fantastic location, where we got to see the spring bluebells and meet the variety of animals at the farm. I would highly recommend this property, its perfect for a staycation.

In the tranquil village of Upper Seagry in the idyllic Wiltshire countryside, resting amidst classic farmhouses and quaint cottages, is the award winning and organic Nables Farm. This wonderful collection comprises of nine exquisite properties, each boasting quality and contemporary furnishings, décor and appliances, providing guests with a truly fabulous base to return to after adventures in the Cotswolds and the Wiltshire countryside. Enjoy an all-ground-floor layout within both Oxen Cottage and The Farm House, sleeping four and six guests respectively, with the barn conversion of Woodmans Cottage offering four guests accommodation over two floors. The state of the art trio of Seagry Barn is a magnificent barn conversion like no other, transformed into a modern, almost futuristic property, with each of the three dwellings offering seven guests a luxury layout, with a wall of glass making the most of the gorgeous views. A pretty semi-detached duo, The Hen House, presents a further eight guests with two lovely cottages, also offering all-ground-floor living, whilst the final addition to this incredible collection is The Anchorage, a huge five-bedroom farmhouse boasting super-king-size bedrooms , presented over three levels. Guests are perfectly situated to explore both of the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty either side of Upper Seagry; the Cotswolds and the North Wessex Downs, both being within a reasonable driving distance. Explore the quaint and historic market town of Malmesbury, reputedly the oldest borough in England, you can expect to find over 400 listed buildings along the pretty streets, mixed among and housing independent shops, traditional pubs and the stunning 12th century Abbey, with the beautiful Abbey House Gardens certainly not to be missed. Venture down to Chippenham, another lively market town, to visit the Chippenham Museum and browse the booming street markets held on Fridays and Saturdays, whilst nearby are plenty of stone-built villages popular with filmmakers including the National Trust’s Lacock Abbey, Fox Talbot Museum and Village. With more than 3,000 miles of footpaths to walking the Cotswolds, you will have new places to venture to everyday. In the opposite direction, the North Wessex Downs is made up of rolling chalk hills, once under a warm sea, now with diverse habitats and natural wildlife and excellent countryside for walking and many other outdoor activities.

Malmesbury 5 Miles; Chippenham 6 miles

The small North Wiltshire village of Upper Seagry is found in superb countryside only five miles north of the bustling market town of Chippenham, and six miles from the ancient town of Malmesbury. Close to the southern end of The Cotswolds, this rural location provides a great base from which to explore this fascinating area. There are ample footpaths and bridleways nearby, a visit to Malmesbury - with its 12th century Benedictine Abbey - is a must, whilst a trip to the Cotswold Water Park is a real treat. Westobirt Arboretum, with its extensive collection of trees and shrubs is not to be missed. Within an easy drive can be found the picturesque village of Castle Combe, also well known for its car racing track, and the quaint National Trust village of Lacock, used as the setting for the BBC TV serial Cranford. The impressive Roman city of Bath, Bowood House, and the ancient stone circle at Avebury are also easily accessible. This really is an excellent base for a relaxing and interesting break at any time of the year.
