Perfect place for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

I booked Almsbury Farmhouse for a family gathering for my 40th birthday. The house was perfect for our group - a party of 12 adults, 2 toddlers and a baby - having a property with a number of reception areas and a separate annexe meant that everyone had their own space. We were incredibly lucky with the weather, which was amazing, and meant that we spent the majority of our time in the lovely enclosed garden, which was great for small children. The farmhouse was beautifully furnished, very clean and had everything that we needed (with the possible exception of sharp knives for food preparation). The team at Bolthole Retreats were helpful and efficient and very kindly accommodated my request to access the property slightly early. The location was brilliant - a very short walk to lovely Winchcombe, which has a number of pubs (we ate at The Lion, which we would recommend - we had our own private function room as we were a large group) and shops, including a Co-op in case you run out of anything. We took advantage of the free entry to Sudeley Castle, which was a fantastic bonus - the grounds are beautiful and the kids loved the huge adventure playground. Our only criticism was that there were a few small things in need of attention, such as a dripping tap in the kitchen, and a couple of loose toilet seats, but it would only need a handyman to go in for a couple of hours to sort these out. All in all every member of my family declared it was one of the best places that they had ever stayed. Thank you for an amazing weekend - we would definitely book Almsbury Farmhouse again in the future!

Prefect for a large group

  • 4 of 5

I booked the house for my 40th birthday for 4 families. The layout of bedrooms is great and we all had our own space. The attic rooms are perfect for kids. All bedrooms are decorated beautifully with modern bathrooms.

Kitchen is well equipped with lots of plates, glasses, serving dishes etc. Would have been nice to have essentials like foil, cling film, cooking oil, kitchen roll provided - or at least info that this isn't provided as most holiday lets are very well stocked so I've come to assume it will be there.

Great seating for meals both inside and out which meant there was plenty of room for whole group to sit down together. The sun terrace is particularly lovely. Set within a safe garden area which contains dogs and children! We loved the alpacas!

The location of the house is perfect- short stroll into Winchcombe, almost next door to Sudeley and on the routes for several great walks. The free entry to the castle is a real bonus as it's not cheap otherwise.

All in all a lovely stay but the house could benefit from an instruction manual for heating and hot water etc, how to work the oven, what to do with recycling etc. And I found Bolthole Retreats were not great with customer service - I had to chase everything - confirmation my booking had been made, the welcome back, confirmation my final balance had been received etc. The only proactive email I had was to ask for the final balance! When I emailed each time they were promptly replied to but I shouldn't have had to do this.

Great for large families/friends get togethers

  • 4 of 5

Lovely old farmhouse with modern kitchen and utility and some modern ensuites. Plenty of room for eating and relaxing especially with the fireplaces that can be used. Heating was a bit random and often bedrooms and bathrooms were cold, especially the attic bedrooms. A well equipped kitchen but it could do with more chopping knives and boards. Some fixtures need attention such as plug holes that didn't work, toilet roll and towel holders that kept falling off. Great location in the centre of Winchcombe, easy to walk to town and to the GWR station and easy and free access to Sudeley Castle. A lovely place to stay, would highly recommend.

An amazing venue in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had booked the farmhouse during the ‘beast from the east’ snow storm and getting to Winchcombe was difficult as 2 of the main routes to the town were closed. We finally made it through luck and perseverance and we are so glad we did.

The house was in a great location, 5 mins walk to the town, 7 mins to the pub and 10 mins to the castle. In the snow the surrounds looked like a picture post card.

Inside, the house it was exactly what we wanted. We paid for the farmhouse experience and this was what we got. A comfortable and cosy space with fireplaces and log burners throughout the house. The uneven floors upstairs and crazy leaning door ways only added to the fun. The large sitting and dining room made the house a great space for 60th birthday party we attended.

The indoor space is also great for young children. Our son (aged 20 months) loved running through the corridors and jumping on the bean bags.

We would love to stay again for another family event.

Perfect property for our group

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house, the photos were spot on. Well equipped kitchen with plenty of mugs, glasses, crockery, pans, etc. Beds were comfortable with nice linen. It really was lovely and reasonably priced I think.

Just a couple of very small niggles, there was no hand soap in the kitchen, downstairs loo and main bathroom on the first floor. Also no firelighters or kindling so we could light the fires. And no instructions about how to deal with the rubbish and recycling.

But overall we were very happy and would be happy to return or recommend.
