A well equiped and comfortable place to stay.
The property was a great base for a cycling holiday with loads of quiet roads on the doorstep with plenty of space to store bikes. The accommodation was very comfortable and relaxing after a days riding with good facilities. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and will definitely consider coming back again next year.
We stayed in Stanton House to celebrate my 40th birthday. There was plenty of room for all the family, including the young children/babies. The kitchen area was great, and the living room really comfy. We had one of the four poster rooms which was beautiful and super spacious, even with a cot in the room.
We had a small issue with the fridge freezer, and the property owners came straight away to help us out with it. Lovely friendly folks!
We made full use of the badminton and tennis courts, and even set up a temporary cricket pitch on the huge field behind the barn complex. We also had a BBQ on the patio area directly outside our barn, which was fab and with plenty of space for all.
We did venture into Stow on the Wold for lunch one day, which was around a 10 minute drive away. There are taxi numbers in the accommodation should you prefer not to drive.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Flagstone Farm and would highly recommend this lovely family-run holiday home.
great place for family get together
Quiet location, well equipped house, very relaxing stay.
Problems with internet didn’t mar the stay as it helped make it a ‘screen free’ weekend!
Wonderful way to spend a very special birthday.
Stanton at Flagstone Farm was the ideal venue for me to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family & friends.
Cosy in looks & feeling but large enough for the 14 of us to enjoy the large combined living, dining, kitchen area.
Our hosts Jeff & Anne Whitney were so very accommodating & helpful from the start helping us sort out what we needed & popped over just enough to check that we were ok & happy with everything.
Topped with that is the beautiful Cotswolds & we throughly recommend Flagstone Farm to anyone who wants to be able to spend quality time with their family & friends.
We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us to celebrate your special birthday with family and friends. It was lovely to meet you all and we hope to see you here on another occasion.
Nowhere near up to standard
The property was dirty when we arrived, in fact one of our party was able to write their name in the dust on the television screen but worse than that the property was cold - very cold. In fact we had to ask for extra heating because although there were two additional convector heaters, one was broken and the second had to propped up on books to keep it off the floor. The addition of any convection heating to the ring main meant we were unable to boil a kettle without tripping the circuit breaker!
Although the property had sleeping facilities for at least 13 there was only seating in easy chairs for 8 and the seating that was there was extremely uncomfortable with seats having sagged so much they were almost on the floor. Again, the covers on this seating were dirty and grubby.
Dangerously one of the smoke alarms fitted did not work when tested and the second was held together with selotape - not very reassuring.
The bedrooms were all big enough with comfortable enough beds but the showers were all substandard with doors that did not close and were not safely fitted to the surround, a badly chipped enamel tray and one where part of the control unit fell off mid shower. Showers in the upstairs bedrooms should have been renamed "dribbles" and one was almost completely unusable.
The kitchen range looked impressive and perhaps would have been so had all the parts of it worked. We were unable to get two of the rings on the hob to heat up at all.
At the end of our stay on departure we removed the bed linen as asked only to discover there were no under covers and the pillows were dirty and stained and very uninviting.
This list is far from exhaustive but serves to illustrate the standard of accommodation provided. It certainly did not meet the standards expected from the description, photographs and price charged. We have taken several photographs of our own which would illustrate our review. The one star awarded is for the size of the property.
60th Wedding Anniversary
We shared our Diamond Wedding Anniversary with all our close family in ' Stanton', which we all thoroughly enjoyed, our family made it a fantastic weekend for us, with memories we will never forget. The cottage was a perfect setting, very comfortable and warm, Jeff came over shortly after our arrival to introduce himself and tell us about the cottage etc. There is a lot to enjoy on site, the countryside is stunning, the youngsters found a lovely walk to the village pub. I am sure our family will come back at some time to visit this lovely area.
We are so pleased that you had a great Golden Wedding Anniversary weekend with all your family. It is certainly an amazing occasion to celebrate!!
We are delighted that the cottage suited your group and would love to see you here again on another occasion.
Kind Regards to you and your family, Jeff and Ann
