    “Having read the previous rather negative reviews we went with some trepidation but found ourselves very pleased with the accommodation.”

    All of our party expressed pleasure on arrival both at the ample room in the house allowing us all to spread out and also the attractively decorated rooms. The bedrooms were particularly comfortable - one double with a small but perfectly formed en suite and the other 3 bedrooms (two more doubles and one twin) sharing a large and luxurious bathroom very close by.

    All of our party expressed pleasure on arrival both at the ample room in the house allowing us all to spread out and also the attractively decorated rooms. The bedrooms were particularly comfortable - one double with a small but perfectly formed en suite and the other 3 bedrooms (two more doubles and one twin) sharing a large and luxurious bathroom very close by. Given an additional downstairs loo we felt the facilities were quite adequate for 6 adults and 2 children. The kitchen was large (with lovely views over the village green) and close to the dining room with seating for 8. Another small table in the kitchen allowed another option for the kids or for occasional coffees. The separate living room was comfortable with ample seating and a large TV (the only one). We also had a small dog with us so the farmhouse proved the perfect venue for dog walking with immediate access to green space outside. There were a few negatives in that we had no WI-FI access during our New Year break and the contact for the property couldn't fix this for us whilst we were there. The other issue was that the Aga had no instructions, other than do not turn off! (a challenge for uninitiated Townies). Only minimal small cooking pots were provided so we needed to have some brought in - this really needs to be rectified - a sophisticated Aga needs some matching kitchen equipment. Another small issue was that the dishwasher was broken - although not a deal breaker for those of us who still remember how to wash up. So all in all this was a lovely property for a family gathering. The health warning is that if being on-line is important to you, WI-FI connectivity really needs checking before you book. If not, we would thoroughly recommend this special venue which provided us with a very happy family holiday.

The property

Elsenham 5.2 miles.

Situated in the picturesque village of Henham, Farm House is a beautiful 16th century, Grade II listed building.

Recently refurbished in every room, inside Farm House you will find lots of character with exposed beams and high finishes throughout, ensuring a truly wonderful base for a family seeking a countryside getaway, whilst remaining close to city life and coast.

Upon entering the property, you’re greeted with a generous space to kick off your boots and remove your outdoor wear before relaxing into your evening within the contemporary-style accommodation.

Step into the farmhouse-style kitchen, where a traditional AGA invites you in to prepare a home-cooked meal for the whole family, as well as a number of useful appliances to cater to your culinary needs.

Enjoy your meals within the dining room, where the exposed beams frame the formal dining table, and a woodburning stove offers a sense of tranquillity as your tuck into your evening meal.

After dinner, sink into the plush sofa and tune into the TV, whilst the second woodburning stove of the dwelling fills the room with a gentle warmth one chilly winter’s evening.

Be spoilt for choice by the sleeping accommodation that awaits you, with four elegantly-presented bedrooms to choose from as the evening draws to a close.

Here, you will find a master suite with an en-suite shower and three other rooms which are served by a spectacular family bathroom, boasting a roll-top bath and a walk-in shower.

The garden area is wonderfully-presented, and offers a space for you and your loved ones to soak up the sun and scenery of your surroundings, in addition to a lawn area for stretching your legs.

For local amenities, venture into Elsenham where you will find a pub serving food and a shop for picking up the essentials.

For things to keep you busy whilst in the Hertfordshire area, find a number of walks within the old royal hunting ground of Hatfield Forest or find a larger selection of amenities within the historic market town of Bishop's Stortford.

Venture further afield to find the bustling city of London, or soak up the sunshine at the coastal resort of Clacton-on-Sea.

A wonderful retreat for exploring with all of your loved ones.
