We wanted somewhere where 16 of us could stay all in the same house.
We are a group of friends who have known each other for years and two of our friends are moving to Australia, so we wanted to give them a send off.
This house was great as it is very central and close to the motorways for us all to get to.
In an ideal world it would have had 7 double/twin bedrooms but there are actually 6 bedrooms so some of the rooms are a double and a single so a couple of the group had to share. It was not a problem as the rooms are very big and we have all known each other a long time.
Most of us as couples had our own rooms and bathrooms.
I guess for familes or groups of girls or guys it works perfectly.
Anyway, I digress.
The house itself is a great size on top of a hill with amazing views but only a 5 minute drive to Stratford upon Avon which was an amazing place.
There was a hot tub, a snooker table, dinning room with enough seats for us all to sit together and a nice breakfast kitchen.
Over the 3 days we had an amazing time and drank way too much champagne in the hot tub.
The property whilst not the height of luxury, was functional and warm and well equipped and the location was breathtaking.
We had looked at several options to go away and we managed to get a late deal on this property for £1199 for 3 nights Monday to Thursday which when we worked it out was only £25 each per night.
So from a value point of view is was outstanding and I dont think we could have gone camping for less.
We have discussed it since and said it would be lovely to go back when the weather was warmer and so we will definately keep our eye on the special offers.
All in all a very pleasant break in a great house and amazing location.
As Arny once said 'We'll be back'
Stayed here for a hen weekend. Accommodation is spacious but has some real issues in terms of maintenance.A bedroom window fell out completely from its frame.This was a sealed unit, not an opening window!Dangerous and a security issue.The electricity went off early hours of Sunday and was not back on prior to leaving so wet hair for the journey home!House was freezing upstairs even when warm downstairs.Shower in bedroom had mould and milldew in cubicle and on ceiling.Bed was wobbly, one of legs was on floor behind headboard.All round this place has worn carpets and needs decorating.Not worth the amount of money it cost to stay here.
Arden Hill Farm is a beautiful property, with great views from both the front and back of the house.
16 of us stayed here for our friends hen do and we had a fantastic time.
The Kitchen and bathrooms were all clean , modern and a good size.
The large dining table and living room made for excellent group areas for all of the girls to hang out and eat meals.
The beds were comfy and the bedrooms were clean, along with this, the house was nice and warm at all times!
The best feature of the house has to be the hot tub. It was big enough for atleast 7 of us at one time and really added that extra touch to the house.
My only critisisms would be that some elements of the decor could have done with a little bit of rejuvenation. In one of the bedrooms there was a hole in the wall, hidden by a wardrobe. Some of the light shades could do with being replaced, and the speakers in the living room didn't seem to work.
Despite these flaws , we had a brilliant weekend and could not have stayed at a more suitable place. I would definitely recommend this property!
We stopped at this property with family over the bonfire weekend and didn't leave a review at the time as the house was great and the service from their team was good. I know we should leave reviews after every stay but sometimes we forget!
Since then I have noticed a very critical review shortly after our stay and I feel the need to add our positive review. We had a lovely stay and all our party had a great weekend.
The hot tub in particular is a great bonus and as the previous reviewer stated is in the front driveway, however this is a perfect location for it as the views are fantastic!
The house is a great base for exploring the surrounding area with taxi's easily available in the evening and plenty to see and do.
We will definitely be making a return visit.

Not far from home for us, wanted a place so all family members could come and relax, it's out standing accommodation & grounds. will be looking to the future to book again.
We stayed at this property as a girls getaway. We try to do something every year for some peace and quiet away from the guys.
It is a traditional farmhouse but done in a modern way, yet still keeping traditional features.
The hot tub was a real bonus it was nice and hot and was great with a few glasses of prosecco.
We also had a beautician come and do some massages and a manicures for only £25 each,leaving us feeling very pampered and relaxed.
Well equipped, very warm and cosy with lovely views and a great location.
We enjoyed a game of pool in the snooker room as we did not know how to play snooker but it was great fun!
Nice rooms with comfy beds. It was lovely to all sit together in the dining room for dinner and it was next to the kitchen so easy transfer of all the food and cutlery.
There are other holiday properties on the same site but in a separate location so it all felt private and special.
I would definitely recommend this property! My sister is getting married next year and it would be the perfect place for a hen party.
We stayed at Arden Hill Farm House as a family get together as we all live in various parts of the country now.
The location was great as it was very central for everyone to get to.
The house is lovely with beautiful views and really good sized rooms. There was a big hot tub and a snooker table so lots for us all to do.
We went on some nice walks and when going out at night Stratford was only a short taxi ride away and there were some great restaurants and pubs. We were advised to pre book the taxis which we did and this worked well as it was a busy weekend.The house had some lovely gardens and we had a kick around with a football on some land at the back that the owners said we could use.
On one night we had an some catering done for us by a chef that the owners recommended and it was amazing food and saved us cooking.
Overall the house was well equipped, in a great location and worked very well for us. It was also very good value over the 3 days between the 16 of us.
The heating was very warm until we found the thermostat but was fine when we knew we could turn it down;certainly better than being cold.
We wanted to rebook for a week in the summer next year but unfortunately it is already booked for our dates but the owners have got a bigger house that we are considering but just need to find a few more people.
Highly recommended and would return without doubt.
