Got sent here on a 3 day course from work and it is probably the best place i have stayed yet on business. It's in the Cotswolds, great views, on a private 400 acre estate. The rooms are great and very clean, all the staff are helpful and extremely polite and the food and quality of it is 5* plus.... More

I was here on a week long Course. Located in beautiful surroundings, staff were very good - polite & efficient, couldn't be faulted. My room was clean and was cleaned every day. My room was a little on the small side considering I had to study each night. I had breakfast, lunch & evening meal each day and the food... More

No doubting the lovely surroundings but unfortunately the hotel was not what we were expecting. We were expecting a country hotel but what we got was a conference/training centre. Perhaps we didn't check it out carefully enough so probably our fault!! If I had been attending a residential course or similar I would have been delighted to have stayed here.... More

I stayed at Farncombe Estate with a view to hosting a team event on the Estate. The long drive down to the buildings is lovely and gives you stunning views across the hills, farmlands and flavour of the beautiful surroundings you will stay on. The grounds are stunning enough, but the Estate is also on the edge of National Trust... More

This hotel has a lot going for it. Firstly the rooms are first class, spacious with all modern amenities. We had an elevated view across open plains right from our window. There are heaps of walks right on the estate including a lovely walk into Broadway village (about 2kms). The first two nights weren't too bad, but the last night... More

My husband chose this hotel following a visit to the Hay Book Festival, we love the area and thought it would be central for the places we wanted to visit.

This was a very unique property in that the rooms are divided into buildings scattered throughout the beautiful grounds. The entire center is a pastoral, peaceful environment. The room was fairly large and very clean. Hotel staff are quite warm and welcoming. The staff in the dining room were particularly helpful. We assumed that breakfast would be served until 10:00am...

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
