Beautiful welcoming home

  • 5 of 5

12 of us stayed for a long Hens weekend, and didn’t feel the need to leave this beautiful property once!! Sally was hugely accommodating in terms of check in/our times and suggestions for activities, and helped us out at short notice when our groceries were delivered earlier than we arrived!! We felt welcomed from beginning to end. Would definitely recommend for a perfect weekend break with friends. Thanks Sally (and John and Jane!)

Beautiful idyllic setting with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most enjoyable stay (despite the weather) in a fantastic setting with all comforts provided. The owners were so kind and went out of their way to make us welcome and lovely to be greeted with wine, bread and a delicious fruit cake. We would not hesitate to recommend it and want to go back for more to enjoy all the facilities in beautiful sunshine we hope next time!

Amazing weekend break

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely amazing. We were greeted warmly and shown around. Bread, fruitcake and a bottle of wine was a very welcome gift from the owners. The house and grounds are beautiful. We had everything we needed and would love to go back in the summer months to make more use of the grounds and pool. The kids loved having the open space to be able to play out safely. Very good accommodation to a high standard. We would certainly return. A great weekend had by all.

65th birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt at home and did not want to leave after enjoying four wonderful days at The Courtyard. Set in a pretty Cotswold village, the house was spotless, well looked after, had comfy beds and everything that we needed was in the kitchen and the BBQ was used too. The weather was on our side and we took full advantage of the swimming pool with plenty of sunbeds to relax on and the six of us played tennis every morning. Croquet was new to us but we made up the rules as we went along and had fun. The gardens are amazing, being a plant lover I enjoyed looking at the variety of plants and trees and my grandchildren were captivated by the number of butterflies they saw. We walked through the fields to the local pub, Sunday lunch was excellent. Our hosts were most welcoming - thank you - we are looking forward to a return visit.

Beautiful property and facilities and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

I booked Holmby House as a surprise trip for my husband's 40th birthday with his friends and their families. We booked all 4 rooms in the Courtyard and 2 rooms in the main house. All the rooms were a great size with private bathrooms, the setting is breathtaking and all of us agreed that it was the perfect weekend. We were 10 adults and 5 children and every single one of us want to go back again. The hosts, Sally and John, were very welcoming but left us to enjoy the property in peace and were there if we needed anything. They provide everything from tennis/croquet equipment to swimming pool towels and toiletries. Sally also left us a home-baked cake and loaf of bread and a bottle of wine to greet us when we arrived! It is the perfect setting to chill out with friends and the facilities are fantastic for children as the garden is enormous but completely secure so that children can run and explore wherever they fancy - my son cried the night we came home as he wanted to stay for longer. All in all, I highly recommend this fabulous place.
