  • "Beautiful house, spotlessly clean and well thought out, and helpful/knowledgable host."

    We loved that we were able to bring the dog with us at short notice and there were emergency dog biscuits if needed. The only teeny tiny issue we had was that we ran out of toilet roll by the second day. But otherwise, wonderful

  • "I booked a week at Woodbottom farm to accommodate 3 generations of family."

    The weather threw everything at us which made cosy evenings by a roaring fire a real treat. Our elderly parents benefited from the downstairs bedroom and WC whilst the rest of the family enjoyed the spacious bedrooms upstairs. The property is very quirky, interesting and extremely comfortable. There's a good sized enclosed garden which was perfect for our dog. Thank you for an enjoyable stay and a much needed getaway.

    Thank you Cath for a super review and look forward to seeing you all again soon. Neil and Sharon. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful week over Christmas at Woodbottom Farm."

    Neil and Sharon were super hosts and very helpful before, during and after the stay. The house itself was spacious, yet cosy and well appointed. The bedrooms were especially good; each a very large space allowing our group of 10 plenty of room and flexibility. Despite the weather not being on our side whilst we were there, we enjoyed lovely walks in the adjacent woods and a great morning at nearby Beaumont Park. A particular highlight of the holiday was large living room with the open fire - a perfect way to spend winter evenings.

    The house is comfortable, and the rooms are all large. Our house felt quite small when we got home! The forest opposite is beautiful and we took our dogs for walks there every day. It was like doggy heaven. Our hosts, Neil and Sharon were on hand next door if we needed anything, and were very friendly without being obtrusive. Would recommend.

    The rooms are spacious & decorated to a high standard & add to this a well equipped modern kitchen & a superb church feeling dinning area, there’s a great choice of bedrooms with different bed arrangements & toilets etc with comfy large beds with plenty of bedding etc. Outside there is a beautiful kept lawn & grounds & also a large outside dinning table & water features, behind the property there’s a wood to walk & explore or walk the dog , then back indoors there’s beds provided to let them relax. The owner Neil is very welcoming & nothing seems an effort for him & is always willing to help you & will do anything to make your stay an enjoyable one & is also the most dog friendly rental I’ve ever come across. I genuinely couldn’t pick a fault with the property or the owner.

    The house was very spacious and the bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely and big. The kitchen & dining room were lovely decorated and big, they need to be for the food and alcohol(mainly the alcohol). Could have done with a bigger fridge and some cooking utensils and a cutlery draw. We did the walk to the Folly Dolly Falls which only took 20 mins, so we carried on to the town to visit the pubs. We got a taxi back and was surprised at the low cost for a mini bus it was £6. Neil & Sharon were lovely hostess so thank you for letting my friends in a little early to decorate the house with my face and birthday banners. Thank you to them both and their lovely holiday home.
