  • "We first stayed in this house 12 years ago and had happy memories of our time there so it was an obvious choice to book for my 60th birthday celebration and it did not disappoint!"

    The house and gardens are beautiful and the house is spacious, very well-equipped and comfortable. The games room is a great addition since our last stay and there are plenty of games and books provided, however, we were lucky(ish) with the weather and were able to enjoy the gardens. We now need to find another reason to return!

  • "We had a fantastic multi generational stay to celebrate a 90th birthday with plenty of space for children and adults to run and play as well as relax inside."

    We would definitely recommend and when we next want a whole family gathering will certainly come back. An additional kettle would have been very useful as it as the only devise that wasn’t duplicated. We did have problems finding enough 3 pin sockets in bedrooms as most were circular and there was no mention of this on the details provided. Maybe some extension leads could be made up and provided.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed the birthday celebrations and look forward to welcoming you back again for the next family gathering. We have passed on your comments and look into this with the owner. Best Wishes Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Home Farm."

    The facilities are excellent and the house and location are beautiful. We were staying with our children and grandchildren and the house had something for everyone. There was a Games room with a pool table and table football and there were outdoor games for the children with a large garden and tennis court. There were several televisions and a large selection of books and indoor board games. The kitchens had plenty of storage and several fridges and freezers. They were very well equipped. All the bedding was feather free, although many cushions and sofas in living rooms were down filled. We have two family members who have issues with feathers and down due to chronic asthma, but we informed the owners prior to our arrival and they kindly moved furniture around to provide a feather free lounge for them. We had no problems as a result. Most evenings after the grandchildren had gone to bed we spent playing games together around the dining room table. There are many places to visit nearby so all in all a fantastic holiday was had by everyone

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are so pleased that you and all your family had a lovely stay and were able to make good use of all the amenities that the thoughtful owner has provided. We hope that we can welcome you back again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Our stay at Home Farm at Easter was a wonderful experience."

    On arrival we felt welcomed to an exceptionally clean and inviting home, and provisions for a drink and snack. All the rooms were of a high standard of decor and comfort. The newly refurbished kitchen was well equipped and a delight for storage and meal preparation, as well providing a smaller dining area. It was a memorable experience to sit around the large dining table with all our family to socialise and share meals. The various sitting rooms provided all the space needed for our multi generation family to enjoy themselves quietly, or join together as one large party. The newly created games room was a hit with everyone and an excellent place for wet weather fun. The grounds were beautifully maintained and provided all the space needed for outdoor games and a challenge for our Easter Egg hunt! Walks across the fields and watching the sheep and lambs were also much enjoyed, as well as visits to Ducklington village and surrounding towns. We reported a couple of minor glitches to the management team, who dealt with them immediately and this also gave us the opportunity to meet the property owner. Fiona was very interested to hear our comments and keen to hear if anything could have improved our stay. We say a very big THANK YOU to Fiona, the management team, cleaners and maintenance team for working together to provide the setting for a dream gathering. Pamela and Andrew

All of this in a stunning location. The only downsides were that the sofas were not comfortable, and 2 couples found the beds to be also uncomfortable. While the kitchen was very well appointed, one fridge had a door that needs attention. Unless we missed it, there was also no dustpan. Overall, a stunning house and a fabulous weekend.

    The kitchen was well stocked with glasses, cutlery, dishes/plates etc and cooking pans & utensils. Great BBQ. There were however some disappointments especially considering the cost of well over £5k. The interior was quite tired and the settees in the main lounge extremely uncomfortable. Some of the main kitchen cupboards need some attention. I think the listing should state how close it is to RAF Brise Norton as some of what I assume are training flights went on till way past 10o/clock in the evening and were very noisy. I would like to thank Elisabeth for her prompt answers and welcome.

  • "The house has been lovely."

    Thankfully we were able to get an earlier check in as I hadn't realised until we had booked that it was a 6pm check in. This really is a unacceptable time for to get small children fed and settled for bed and to generally organise ourselves for an evening meal - this would really prevent us from booking in the future. Its a beautiful house though, however, it has been let down by lack of basic provisions; - I was later told these should have been left but weren't. No Bin Bags No Oven Gloves No Tea Towels (fortunately I brought my own) No Dishcloths or scourers No Dishwasher tablets - one of us had to drive after supper at 10.30pmto a garage to get some Other items which would have helped would be a couple of large water jugs - as one plastic one is woefully inadequate Also there aren’t two complete sets of cutlery for starter /main course/cheese for when we all sat down for dinner There are some keys missing in the piano which need fixing. If you could ensure these problems would be addressed we would like to come on a regular basis as the other facilities and the grounds and tennis court are excellent.

    Thank you for providing us with this feedback. We appreciate that 6pm check-in is not ideal, Home Farm is a big property, as you are aware, and therefore takes a long time to clean to the highest standard. Where possible we facilitate early arrivals- as we did for your party, but this is not always available. Sincere apologies our standard 'Welcome Pack' was not in the property for your arrival- this was an oversight on our part and had we have been notified we would have rectified this straight away. We have replaced both waterjugs and cutlery following your email. Apologies again re: piano (a new one is on our wishlist), it was tuned and fixed to the best possible quality before your arrival, as requested by yourselves. Aside from these minor altercations, we hope you managed to enjoy your stay. Kind Regards, Barley Park Cottages. Property Owner
