A group of us wanted three separate rooms close to Broadway so that we could attend a family party. After years in cramped box rooms at Halls of Residence whilst at uni we were a bit concerned about staying at a conference centre. We need not have worried. Farncombe offers very modern, spacious and well equipped rooms with tasteful en... More

The location and views of the Gloucestershire country side are magnificent. It is essentially a conference hotel., an ex training centre and whilst the rooms are great and modern, the grounds stunning, the institutionalised food is very disappointing and does match up to the rest of the facilities. The staff were very good and the ability to walk around the... More

Stayed for 4 nights as part of a group of 50 on a course. Accommodation was in Maudsley Court and was a lovely bright room. The work rooms were further away and involved a lot of step climbing which meant I could indulge more in the delicious food. The variety was impressive, especially the vegetarian choices, there was plenty to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Farncombe Estate is perfectly placed for a short stay or holiday in the north Cotswolds. Our 400-acre private country estate is home to a village of 89 modern ensuite bedrooms, with long views over the Vale of Evesham and beyond. Our restaurant serves locally-sourced, home-made food and we have a lovely lounge bar with pool table and large-screen TV.Farncombe is surrounded by pretty market towns, great pubs and gorgeous gardens to visit. Stratford-upon-Avon, Cheltenham and Oxford are all a short drive away, while Broadway, Chipping Campden and Stow-on-the-Wold are on our doorstep. So think of us for Shakespeare plays, Regency shopping, Festivals and Racing, or the “dreaming spires” of the oldest university in the world. If you like fresh air and natural beauty, you’ll enjoy spotting the deer, foxes and badgers that roam Farncombe Estate, or walking our Nature Trail. There are dozens of footpaths across our land, with links to the Cotswold Way (at Broadway Tower) and other famous Cotswold walks. We’ve also counted 30 amazing garden visits within 30 miles. ... more   less
