Guestbook comments from the owner

"THANK YOU SO MUCH, We had a fanastic time on the hen! The weather wasn't perfect, but it didn't spoil our fun at all as the house was gorgeous! I hadn't expected it to be quite so well-appointed, spacious and comfortable.

We had a lovely time sitting in the conservatory, relaxing in the living room, and on one night cooked a huge meal and had a proper dinner party in the dining room. The grounds were so spacious and with such stunning views we spent a lot of our time just enjoying each other's company in the house. "The house was incredible - much more beautiful that I had imagined and the whole weekend ran really smoothly!"

"needless to say we were all very impressed and would rate every criteria as '5' and would highly recommend the farmhouse to others- indeed I am hopeful that we will make a return visit at some stage"

Overspill accommodation can be made available and caravans or camping is also possible (additional charges would apply). Available adjacent to the house is a stable for up to 3 horses and a paddock with electric perimeter fencing (additional charges would apply). RAF Brize Norton airbase is about 3 miles away so some military air traffic should be expected – and enjoyed too!

Tree shaded areas near house and more extensive woodland 200m away. Simply stunning views that stretch for 20 miles to the south. Space for more cars than you could possibly bring!

Fantastic property with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend in this property. It is sometimes hard to find properties for large single set groups, but this was ideal. It is set in 50 acres so you don't need to worry about the neighbour's and it is so well equipped to ensure you have a fantastic stay, for example there is a big cupboard full of towels for the hot tub in the utility room, the kitchen has plenty of crockery, glasses, serving bowls, decent knives etc. There was nothing we needed that we couldn't find (and all in a logical place). The bedrooms are great and all have lots of space, the upstairs bedroom with a double and a sofa bed is really two rooms. Ideal for several families or big groups. There is a big, well maintained hot tub with lots of outside lighting around it and in the trees, and places to sit next to it, making it really sociable. You can go on some nice walks from the property and it has it's own woodland to explore. Tad, the owner, was very welcoming & great at communicating with us prior to our stay. If you are considering a stay here I would recommend you do it - you won't be disappointed!

A stunning property in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This place looked great on the website and was even better when we arrived. Tad the owner was on site to meet and greet all the family and 3 dogs. We felt comfortable right away with the tour of the house and grounds. And what a house it is. Superb rooms throughout for 10, plenty of rooms to spend time in. All of which are highly decorated and equipped with everything we needed. The grounds are perfect for dogs and thanks Tad for taking on the 3 dogs (rabbits not so slow btw). The garden area was perfect for family boules and wine sessions. The only problem with it was ...... not doing a full week. The location was spot on for Burford, Bourton and Stow as well as ideal for early morning cycling. I no doubt assume we will all want to return.

Tad was also kind enough to go to the trouble of posting back a foot pump we'd left behind. Thank you for a great stay sir

Good place for a family gathering

  • 4 of 5

The house is lovely, very well equipped and comfy, with loads of towels for the hot tub, which was wonderful. We were a large party of 12 and filled the property but there was more than enough room for us all. It is quite difficult to find as it is set on its own in the middle of the countryside. The site itself is interesting with an old disused runway close by and a large field of solar panels. It is however very quiet and we saw different wildlife, rabbits, red kites and deer during the course of our stay.

30th birthday party

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us stayed in the Farmhouse for two nights in December for my partners 30th birthday.

I can not recommend it enough - each of the bedrooms are stunning, as is the living room and dining area. There is plenty of space for large groups to both stay and also enjoy each others company.

The location is also stunning - long walks, hot tub, and nearby pubs are available so I am sure there is something to satisfy everyone's tastes!

Tad was also fantastic before our arrival - he answered all my queries promptly and politely, and went out of his way to be helpful - and it was greatly appreciated!

We are already planning another trip this year - I really can not impress how much we enjoyed staying at Kencott Farm.

Thanks Tad! :)
