“Lovely, well equipped cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Elm tree farm is a lovely cottage, with lots of room, there were 8 adults and 4 children & a 6 month old baby staying and we never felt on top of each other.
It's very well equipped, with everything you need for a self catering cottage, including travel cots with foam mattresses and highchairs, the only thing we couldn't find was a measuring jug to make jelly!
The complimentary Bakewell tart was very tasty, even those who weren't keen on almonds went back for seconds.
The whole booking process through Hilary was a joy, she was very helpful & the directions to the cottage were very detailed.
The website is informative, but does not give the true reflection of how good Elm Tree Farm is, we will definitely be using this again for family get togethers

Thank you for your complimentary review - and for treating the house with such care. Sorry about the measuring jug which I had accidentally taken home with me.
We do hope to welcome you again sometime.

“Gorgeous cottage making for a fab long weekend stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Our group consisted of 8 adults and 4 under 2s and we all enjoyed staying at this cottage. The rooms where large enough to accommodate parents that had their babies in their rooms and there were enough bedrooms to house the other 2 toddlers. Having said that we still had more sleeping facilities if needed so we are planning on going back when the children are older and the weather is better so we can make the most of the BBQ and garden. The cottage is beautiful and has been restored to the highest of standard with underfloor heating everywhere. There are lots of bedding and towels provided and all the other essentials (toilet rolls, dishwasher tablets, shampoo and shower gel, coffee and tea etc) which means all you need to pack are your clothes and you're ready to go. I really don't think I can do this cottage justice with a single review but thank you Hilary and David for making the whole experience very easy and we hope to be back soon.

“Superb accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Cannot fault the helpfulness of the owners and quality of the accommodation. Everything one could wish for to enjoy a stay with friends or family. Sandra's delicious Bakewell Tart as a welcome gift made it even better!

“Spectacular period property in a stunning location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

The service was exceptional right from booking Elm Tree Farm to having a guided tour of the house at the start of our weekend away. The owners were friendly, incredibly helpful and had provided beautiful little touches - a delicious homemade Bakewell tart - that made the weekend fantastic.

Everything we needed was already in the house, plus more than we could ever think of ourselves. The standard of finish throughout was to a far higher standard than we were expecting and the open plan kitchen / living / dining room had plenty of space for the 11 of us.

The house was easier to find than we thought and the local pub, The Jug & Glass Inn, was only a short walk down the road, providing us with plenty of local ales, good food and a roaring fire to see us through the weekend.

I have already recommended the house to a number of family and friends and I would definitely go back again.

“Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We had an amazing stay at Elm Tree Farm, it is a beautiful cottage, the pictures really can't do it justice. It was even bigger than I expected and the quality of the fixtures and furnishings is of a very high standard (very comfy beds!). The cottage is incredibly well equipped, Hilary has done a lot of research into what you might need during your stay and ensures all your needs are catered for. I couldn't recommend this cottage more, we had a wonderful stay. Thank you very much.

“The best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Elm Tree Farm is a great place for family and friends to get together, we had a group of two families with four adults and four children (3 years to 3 months). There is so much space for the children to run around, both inside and out, and the toys provided with the cottage provided many hours of distraction.

Can't recommend this place enough.
