“Perfect family house”
Reviewed November 1, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My sister rented this property for her husbands surprise 50th birthday. It was perfect for us with children as most of the rooms had a double and 1 or 2 singles. One ground floor bedroom with en suite suitable for guests unable to manage the stairs. The children had a ball. Safe gated driveway, and large, secure garden with plenty of space to rampage and build dens etc. Would be fabulous in the summer using the large BBQ area. The local area was tranquil with pretty walks. My daughter said it was the best hide and seek house she has ever seen!!
Main dining room comfortably sat 12 adults, but we did manage to squeeze 18 in using high chairs and a small table borrowed from another room.
Plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses etc to go round. I did manage to cook a roast for all 18 guests, but the oven was not massive, and the aga was beautiful, but much slower, so allow plenty of time to roast the joint!
The beds were comfortable and the linen very clean indeed...in fact the whole house was spotless. There were no en suites as such although we did manage to allocate a bathroom to the birthday boy for their exclusive use...i think there were 4 bathrooms altogether.
Before we arrived, I had read a review which suggested that the place wasn't worthy of its 5 star rating, but i would have to disagree. Yes the linen looked as if it was laundered by an external laundry company and wasn't Harrods best, but the sheets were beautifully clean and pressed. Much of the furniture, drawers, bedside tables etc were Ikea, but were all very fit for purpose. The rooms on the first floor were very spacious with high ceilings and rooms on the second floor were up in the rafters, beamed and painted a gorgeous Farrow and Ball 'plaster' colour. The log burner in the lounge roared and the fridges were capacious enough to hold out fizz...and yes, there were champagne flutes.
lovely!

“A lovely place to stay”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a lovely time staying at this farmhouse that was able to hold 14 of us. The area was very peaceful and quiet but it was easy to get to the main Cotswolds attractions. Yew Tree was very comfortable and it was amazing to see the star light sky at night. The service from the letting company was friendly and efficient. We had a great time and would love to go back.

“Fabulous venue for a group retreat”
Reviewed June 17, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My team rented Yew Tree Farmhouse for a 3 day retreat this June.
The Farmhouse is situated in a quiet village near the Thames.
The house and grounds are beautiful.

The house was extremely clean and had everything needed to comfortably host a group of 14-17 people. We had our food delivered on the first day, had meetings in the front room, cooked for one another in the large kitchen and finished every evening with a drink in the garden followed by a banquet in the dining room. We also took time off to walk along the riverside paths to one of the nearby pubs, and got a cab back.

There were 14 of us but there was ample room and individual beds for 17.
In summary, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it for groups of 14-17.

I should add that Megan at Penny & Sinclair was a great help and responded very quickly to all queries.

This is lovely, spacious accommodation, even for a large group. It's a calm, peaceful environment with a lovely garden for relaxing in with drinks, al fresco dining and good company. Lots of parking space too.
