We spend only one night with 3 children. This was no problem, they have twin and double bedrooms, they just added an extra mattress in the twin room. The breakfast was outstanding. I can really recommend this very nice, clean and friendly place.

Stayed there for a few months whilst on a consulting assignment. My life often revolves around posh hotels across the world but this place is a godsend. Great setting, small hamlet with all amenities surrounded by terrific countryside. Great accommodation, spacious and clean rooms with all considerations taken care of. Great food, Caroline and her team provide spectacular high quality... More

Stayed at Lower Farm for one night because we attended a dance in Barnwell Village Hall, which is only a 10 minute walk away. The B&B was well signed and easy to find in the dark on arrival. Drive carefully down Main St. so that you do not end up in the stream! Cannot fault the welcome or room facilities... More

This is certainly one of the best B&B we have stayed in. Spotlessly clean throughout. Bedrooms set around courtyard were very comfortable with a very comfy 6ft bed, nice fluffy pillows and lovely white linen. Bathroom had good powerful shower and white fluffy towels. Lots of choice for breakfast, all freshly cooked - full english breakfast, scrambled egg and smoked... More

What a wonderful B&B. Its felt more like a set of apartments around a central courtyard. If you want to get away from city life, its a great break in a beautiful and rural feeling area. Our room was very spacious and extremely clean. There are various sizes of rooms however if you are travelling alone. The shower and bathroom... More

This bed and breakfast was one of the best we have ever stayed in, beautifully appointed, comfortable and spotlessly clean. After the wonderful breakfast we were ready to explore this attractive area. Many thanks to Caroline and her team. Looking forward to a second visit.

Caroline and her team looked after us brilliantly for a week, accommodating our vintage cars, recommending good places to eat, and serving up memorable breakfasts complete with home-made marmalade. This is a working farm yet the rooms are spacious, generous bathrooms, excellent large beds, and quiet. There's a courtyard with seating for friends, and it is top-drawer all round. Relaxed,...

Lower Farm is definitively a wonderful option if you plan to stay in the area or just passing by and need to stop to take a rest. Marriott family did a great job, you'll really feel like at home (kudos to Caroline). Price/quality is very good, breakfast too.

After a strenuous day's canoeing we enjoyed the comforts of Lower Farm even more. This was the overnight stop on our enjoyable two-day paddle from Thrapston to Fotheringhay organised by local company, Canoe2. Seeing this unspoilt area from the River Nene is a real treat. Charming villages like Wadenhoe, Ashton and Fotheringhay are all worth exploring (each with an excellent... More
