  • "The cottage was nicely presented and the children loved the play areas."

    However the cottage was not properly clean, there was a lot of dust, dirty handles and bath. The kitchen equipment was not washed properly. The whole cottage smelled of damp so strongly we had to keep all the doors and windows open and all our clothes took on the smell. Not nice for a relaxing break!

  • "Lovely farmyard animals in spacious well fenced areas."

    Warm pool (no diving or splashing allowed) Lovely open plan barn (curtains instead of doors for upper rooms) Pretty woodland and play area for little ones. The kids loved the trampolines too

  • "Cottage exceeded our expectations."

    Finished to a high standard. Very comfortable. Lovely location if you are exploring the area. We were staying for the air tattoo so not really there for touring. Could possibly do with some spare tableware and cutlery as only four of each supplied maybe at least one extra set of everything. Speed bumps are very high and even at a crawl you scrape underside of car. Trick is to go over them at an angle.

  • "This is a delightful place, in the countryside and very peaceful, but close to the village, which is just a short walk away."

    The children loved it, as their were animals, as well as a huge play area, both in a field and in the woods. This is an ideal place for family holidays, with plenty to do in the neighbourhood. Rachel was very friendly and helpful.

  • "Lovely peaceful place to stay, beautiful countryside and lovely walks."

    But not far from shops and eateries. Close to many other Cotswold attractions. Enjoy.

  • "We had a nice time at Henloft cottage."

    Great for kids with animals to feed and a woodland play area. The cottage itself is not so good for tall people as the doors and beam are probably only 6 feet high, but the facilities within are good. The pool was freezing cold but good enough for a family to enjoy.

  • "Was OK disappointed that there was no tea/ coffee on arrival."

    The play area needs to be up dated and the wood land play area needs to be replaced. On the whole we enjoyed our stay and the owners were very nice but they should be more careful with cleaning as I found large dust bunnies under the sofa's sweets behind the cushions and cotton buds in the upstairs bedroom from previous guests

  • "We had a lovely week in Henloft, despite the weather!"

    The children (2 and 4) loved having the freedom to run off and play and say hello to the various animals. Will definitely stay here again.

  • "The beds and sofas were uncomfortable to the point of hurting my partners back."

    There was no room for a travel cot in either of the bedrooms, so our daughter had to sleep in the dining room - not ideal. Also meaning we had to dismantle the cot every morning which was very inconvenient. We stated we had a 1yr old so would obviously be using a travel cot. In the visitors comment book it had been noted by numerous people that the sofas and beds were uncomfortable going back to 2014 - these comments clearly hadn't been taken on board. On the plus side the booking process was quick and easy, the owners seemed nice enough on arrival and the location on site and surrounding town was very nice. Our daughter loved walking around the site and looking at the animals that was a bonus.

  • "Fabulous family holiday where we had booked 4 cottages together."

    The location was perfect. The setting of the cottages was also excellent. The farm and facilities were superb. for a family holiday. The staff were always helpful. Only issues were that there was not enough hanging space and the cottages are in need of a minor upgrade in terms of décor and maintenance. These same comments apply for Parlor, Dairy and Bull Pen bookings.
