“Great base for seeing friends and attractions in Wiltshire”
Reviewed August 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Stayed here several times in all bar one of the cottages at Mauditts Park Farm. Kids love the freedom of being on a working ng farm and being at one with nature. Good solid self catering accommodation. Hosts very helpful and friendly.

“A working farm and idyllic countryside”
Reviewed May 17, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Breathtaking views, peaceful surroundings and beautiful walks from the doorstep made this a great place to spend a summer weekend in the countryside.

The children loved meeting some of the animals on the farm, getting close to the action in the milking parlour and feeding newborn lambs.

The Cow Byre itself was quite basic, but with loads of space for the children to play and for us adults to relax. I would definitely recommend it to others. And I think it would be a great place to go with a larger group of friends, occupying several of the cottages which are all next door to one another.

If you do take toddlers, just beware of the pond, in the courtyard in front of the cottages.

“Fantastic Farmyard reTREAT”

Just stayed here with a group of friends and already planning on coming back. Everyone was extremely welcoming & friendly, gorgeous views from all angles, everything including pool & sauna clean & easy to use (make sure to bring some £1 coins to top up the sauna!) you can look around the farm at lots of different animals & are welcomed to watch the milking (if you get up early enough!) got good use out of the tennis court, table tennis & snooker table. All kitchen appliances easy to use and in good order. HIGHLY recommend the Somerford Arms down the road! not really walking distance, took us about 20 minutes to get there but best steak i've ever had and fantastic service! Malmesbury also good for a visit, very pretty, a few charity and gifty shops, go to amanda's oxford street bistro for a great full English!
