“Excellent base to celebrate my special birthday and pepare for the Manchester marathon!”
Reviewed April 12, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I stayed in this lovely cottage with my family for my 40th birthday before I was due to run my first marathon. I wanted a base to relax and prepare for this daunting task! I was not disappointed. The house is modern with a fresh, inviting feel. The rooms are spacious and my children particularly enjoyed sleeping in the attic room with a spiral staircase and their own en-suite! Fiona, the owner made us feel very welcome and provided a delicious welcome pack of cakes, apple pie, bread, milk tea and coffee and homemade jam! My husband particularly liked the eggs, sausages and bacon he found in the fridge and I was especially touched by my energy pack just for me which included flapjack, bananas, nuts and lucozade - what a lovely touch!
I would not hesitate to recommend this holiday cottage to others and am already thinking of another reason to return!!

We came with our family of five children, and stayed five nights. The property was excellently renovated, was roomy, and very comfortable for all of us. The location was quiet and stunning yet conviently located to the motorway, and friends and family. We enjoyed the quiet country atmosphere of the farm. The hosts were very accomodating we were greated with an array of freshly baked goods and much more. Fiona and Andrew were excellent hosts. We highly recommend this rental for its comfort and quiet atmosphere.

“A lovely surprise”
Reviewed October 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at this property to attend a family wedding nearby and it couldn't have been in a better spot.
The owners had provided a lovely selection of cakes and breakfast things to welcome us and the house was spotless.
There was 6 of us in total and there was plenty of space and we had a very comfortable stay. Would definitely return if in the area again.

“A wonderful home in a fantastic countryside near the great city of MCR”
Reviewed July 29, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We loved our stay in far wicken hall. We were welcomed with a marvelous pack. Fiona is a fantastic host, very friendly and helpful. The house is highly confortable and I slept on the best pillows I ever known! We loved the walks on the countryside. The tram is really handy to go to the city of Manchester. We discovered this city (we are french tourists) and wish to spend more time there. We do absolutely recommend this accomodation.

A lovely home from home of the highest standard with amazing attention to detail. We had 4 young children who thoroughly enjoyed the experience, particularly Fiona taking them to see animals on the farm which was great. Fiona was extremely helpful , friendly and thoughtful. We would definitely return!

“A warm welcome and fantastic holiday for all the family”
Reviewed October 14, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We have stayed at Far Wicken Hall a couple of times now and would have to doubt in recommending our family and friends to stay there as well.

Fiona is so accommodating to your every need and cares about the 'little things' and the 'details' which make all the difference - I can see how they have been awarded 5* accommodation.

The facilities are immaculate and the location is very peaceful yet so close to all the amenities you need. A big thumbs up from me and the rest of the family.

“TOTALLY AMAZING”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

What a gorgeous cottage! We loved every minute of our stay, from the moment we drove up from Heathrow 'til we drove away 5 days later. The welcome pack of home-made goodies was lovely. The cottage was very well equipped, more than we expected. We loved the attention to detail. Very clean and tidy. Will definitely return in the future. Thank you.
