“Great stopover with family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

We spent one night as a family at Brook Farm just to get out into the countryside to blow away the cobwebs. This is a great place to stay, with our three children (aged 4-6) enjoying the characterful nature of the house very much. There were some newly born lambs on site which also was a bonus! We stayed in two connecting family rooms, one of which has a quirky but extremely historic wooden beam running through the middle of it (you need to be flexible to bend under it...) and these rooms are located in a quiet end of the house. Excellent breakfast was provided too. If you want an authentic stay in an old country manor house this is the place to go. Mrs Butler is an excellent host and very good and friendly with the children. The surrounding countryside is very rural - Finchingfield is just a few minutes down the road and is a must see. Overall highly recommended.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2011

We spent 6 nights at Brook Farm, and had a good time doing so. Of course, it is not a modern building, but an ancient house, so some of todays modernities as floorheating etc were spared us, instead there is a thick beam crossing right through the room, a creeking floor, antique furniture. But all this, in connection with the extreme helpfullness, knowledge and humour of Mrs Butler, gives the place a charm, that exceeds most modern amenities.

We felt very welcome and quite at home, and did a great many trips into the near andnot so near neighbourhood. There are so many places of beauty and interest around, we will have to come back !
