Thank you - what a beautiful home!  We had a fantastic stay as a family for my birthday. Fresh air, great location, open Fires and shear luxury, what more can you ask for. The beautiful baked bread and basket of goodies on arrival added that extra special touch. Thank you for opening the doors to this beautiful house for us to share a few precious days together as a family.

A wonderful house and location! Lots of character and just right for six adults and two children for a long weekend! Thank you so much for the welcome basket! A day out on Saturday at a wedding locally and a relaxing day on Sunday with sunshine spent walking, meal at the local pub and time in the garden! Thank you very much for a wonderful stay in a great location

Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful family weekend at Manor Farm. We were all very impressed by how well equipped and comfortable the house is. We had everything we needed and the toys and books for the little ones were an extra bonus. The information provided about the house and the area were comprehensive and most useful, we really wanted for nothing.

The weather, of course, was perfect for being outdoors, enjoying the local walks and relaxing in the garden after the children were asleep 

We enjoyed ourselves so much we have talked about returning and we certainly can’t recommend Manor Farm highly enough.

A wonderful farmhouse renovated to a luxurious high standard yet comfortable so one can feel at home. Liz is a super hostess and made us all so welcome. Such a blessing to be able to retreat here even just for a short while. Loved it!

Our group of ladies have been taking annual long-weekend breaks for the last 12 years.  This year we selected Manor Farm in Grafton as it looked promising and had many good reviews. 

 

After our stay we all agreed that it is the best house yet! 

 

It is a house full of character and very well appointed.  Every need seems to have been considered and catered for including a welcome basket of good quality, local supplies.  The kitchen with its AGA and farmhouse table is the hub of the house and very well appointed

 

As a same-sex group, we were so pleased that all beds could be made up as singles which is a rare option in the holiday rental market.  The beds and bedding are top quality, showers are excellent, furnishings are also good quality and comfortable. 

 

The outdoor space is lovely with plenty of seating, and the views are stunning.

 

The area is ideal for short or long walks, some of which can be quite hilly.  There are also lots of pretty villages and towns to visit meaning the area catered for all our individual needs.

 

All in all, we had a fabulous weekend!

We had the most fantastic time staying here, despite a thorough battering by a storm. The house has been the most perfect place to cosy up away from the wind and rain. In the short time without rain, we loved seeing the soapbox races on New Year’s Day and we hope to return, the same day with our own entry!

This is a beautiful house, comfortable, spacious and really well equipped. Thank you for the goodies on arrival. Much appreciated. The kitchen and dining room have been used well as have the local pubs. The Star – very cosy and the quiz night on Monday was a lot of fun. The food is hearty and tasty. The Yew Tree also really good food and a really great welcome from the owner, made the evening very entertaining. We’ve loved the walking despite the mud in places. All in all a really enjoyable week for our precious friends to get together.

Short but magical stay in this wonderful farmhouse. So well equipped, comfy and inviting, such a treat. We saw very little of the surrounding area during our brief day, but the towns and villages that we drove through were extremely pretty, can certainly recommend Broadway village.

We have not long returned home from our stay at the Shepherds hut celebrating our wedding Anniversary. Ohh my goodness, what can I say??  I am lost for words with how amazing our stay was. My wife and I could not believe how well put together the Shephards hut was, EVERYTHING was perfect and we enjoyed every second of our stay, the bed was super comfortable, the shower, lighting, OMG the table was beautiful, even the homemade bread was just Lush , and don’t get me started with the Hot tub.. nothing short of phenomenal.

The saddest part of our two days was having to lock up and leave …

What a beautiful house! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The beds are very comfortable and ensured we had a blissful night's sleep. The kitchen is very well equipped – perfect for preparing family meals! The children enjoyed playing hide and seek in the nooks and crannies of the house. The children’s books and games were very much appreciated and kept the children entertained. The walk across the fields to The Star Inn was very refreshing and enjoyable. Thank you for the delicious hamper of goodies! We will certainly come back (we’re already planning our next family get-together here!) Thank you again!

The perfect place for a (delayed by a year) celebration of a significant birthday and a ruby wedding anniversary, shared with children and grandchildren. The youngsters loved the home and garden, and we enjoyed sitting out in the evenings listening to the birds' songs. The weather was much better than predicted by that well-known work of fiction a.k.a. BBC weather forecast. We had lovely walks – across the fields to The Star in Ashton, for a great meal (and playground), over Little Hill and round; from Elmley Castle up Bredon Hill with glorious lark song (as noted by Housman) and back stopping at the appropriately named Queen Elizabeth Inn for refreshments.  Another day, to Broadway and Broadway Tower. Great day out with all the family to Cotswold farm Park – boys pleased to have met Adam! On our last evening – thanks Liz for inviting us to the beacon lighting on Little Hill, it was good to feel part of the celebrations. Nothing lacking at the house, all top grade! A blessed week

What a lovely place to spend a few days with the family!! A perfect situation for us all to meet and relax… Although the 4 grandchildren kept us on our toes!! Accommodation is beautiful, everything one could want. We had a fabulous time.
Favourite things to do: Bike riding to the playground in Beckford with coffee from The Old Post Office – great cake! Walking across the fields to The Star Inn at Ashton under Hill. Evening drinks at the Beckford Inn. Playing in the beautiful landscaped garden. Family meals in the dining room. The children loved the toys and books. We loved the fresh flowers and welcome basket!
Thank you!!

It seems like your previous guests have said it all. I guess it is ditto for us too! The house is wonderful and full of character. 
The Manor farm is a perfect location for a holiday in the Cotswolds and highly recommend anyone contemplating a visit. You are a wonderful host and many thanks for a wonderful week

REVIEWS FOR THE SHEPHERDS HUT

May

"

A truly fantastic escape to nature. This was no mere hut, packing in everything and more than you could want in terms of amenities and pretty finishing. Importantly, the bed was super comfy, and the shower hot and strong. The valley location is beautiful whilst being easy to get to. We made full use of all the footpaths and had a proper adventure walking in the surrounding hills. Well worth the money and perfect for a romantic getaway.

Had a wonderful stay at the shepherd's hut, it was clean and so cosy! We were given a few lovely bits such as eggs, a loaf of bread and some cookies which was a lovely touch. We ended up staying an extra night as well which was no problem and much appreciated. We will definitely be coming back!

We had such a wonderful stay at the Shepherd's hut and can't recommend it enough. Elizabeth and her family were very helpful in arranging our stay and answering any questions that we had. We were attending a wedding in the village, and it was just the perfect place to be - beautiful surroundings with amazing views of the stars. The hut itself is small but mighty - it's adorable! It had everything we could possibly want for our weekend stay and we appreciated all of the small details that made the trip that extra bit special. PS Worried it was too small? Don’t be – my husband is 6’4”and was perfectly comfortable

We had such a lovely stay at the Shepherds Hut! It is located in a fantastic setting on Bredon Hill with amazing views. The cabin was immaculately clean with lovely welcome gifts of fresh bread, chocolates, tea & coffee. Every little detail has been thought through and we would highly recommend! Can’t wait to return again soon. Thank you so much for hosting us!
