Gorgeous house,perfect for our celebration weekend

  • 4 of 5

We hired Yew Tree Cottage for a group of 15 ladies, for a hen weekend. Everyone loved the place, so much space, lovely setting, really rustic and homely but had all the mod cons we needed for a fab weekend.

Booking with staycotswolds was so smooth too, and reassured me that we were going to have a great stay. Were met with James the manager, who was so helpful and friendly (even though we were over half an hour late!) There was an issue with hot water on the Sat morn but this got resolved really promptly as soon as I contacted the maintenance lead, he arrived and all was sorted out.

Would love to stay here again, highly recommended.

A great place for a large gathering.

  • 4 of 5

Yew Tree Farm House is a great place to stay and happily accommodated our large group of friends (19 at one point).

The house has a lovely feel about it and a large garden, which even though it was early April we sat out in for breakfast on 3 mornings. A great sun trap. Also has a large BBQ area.

There is some good walking from the house and though it is in the middle of countryside its pretty easy to get to all the Cotswold tourist spots.

Good local pubs, Tesco express and Co op in Highworth 10 minutes down the road.Shame the weather was so warm we didn't need to use the log fire. Enjoy.

Fantastic for group/family getaway

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely beautiful property with large grounds and lovely rural setting. Unfortunately we arrived to a find an infestation of flies in a couple of the bedrooms (an annual occurrence apparently rather than an ongoing problem!), but this was dealt with quickly and professionally by Stay Cotswold. The house is ideal for large family groups and we would certainly recommend it to others and consider using again ourselves - a great find!
