I stayed here once before with work on a conference and was very impressed. My boyfriend and I wanted to go and stay in the Cotswolds and found that the rates where a lot more competitive than many local hotels so we booked in for 3 nights. On arrival we were told we had been upgraded to a superior room... More

We stayed for mine and a friend's Birthday at the end of February 2015. We stayed in a junior suite, (rooms 100 and 617) which I have to stay were fantastic. Warm, roomy,comfortable and faultless. All staff in the Hotel and restaurant were so friendly and helpful. Andrew and Luke were particularly impressive. Luke after overhearing it was my friend's... More

I have to say I was a bit sceptical when I heard this is a conference centre but it is a delightful place to stay set in the Cotswolds. It's a bit of a trek through the countryside, but that is the reason we went, to Broadway which is a great little village. Friendly, very clean. They are going through... More

Spend a wonderful Valentine's weekend here and it was perfect to explore the Cotswolds by car. Entrance to the Estate is beautiful with a view across the valley. Didn't know beforehand that renovations to the dining area took place so a disappointment. Had two lovely cooked breakfasts at main reception. Special red roses on the dining room tables Valentine's morning... More

I have stayed twice on weekend singing courses and can thoroughly recommend the experience. The accommodation and food is good if a little basic but the atmosphere and setting is fabulous relaxing and well worth whatever you end up paying!!

Although not a typical BnB, we found Farncombe to be a good location for our visit to the Cotswolds. Rooms were nicely appointed and the breakfast was beautifully presented with helpful staff. Great base to geocache from.

I took the Evensong Music Class over a weekend during a longer visit to Britain. I was the only American. It was a wonderful experience musically and a great cultural immersion experience getting to know my fellow singers. The instructor was fantastic and the class culminated with performing the Evensong in a Medieval Cotswold Church. No typical tourist activity can... More

Although we have visited Broadway for many years this was our first stay at Farncombe Estate and cant think how we have never discovered it before!
