“Beautiful cottage in a great locatoon”
Reviewed November 8, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed here for a long weekend in early November. The cottage is beautiful, the garden is huge and the location is great, within east reach of a nearby village and town but still feeling nice and remote.

It was a good choice for us travelling as a couple with a young toddler as there was plenty of space for him. The owners have also left a number of toys in the house and offered a cot, safety gate and high chair at no additional charge.

The cottage was clean and tidy on arrival with everything we could have hoped would be provided (tea, coffee, towels etc).

It was a very cold weekend but the heating was effective and the wood fire in the lounge (with logs and kindling supplied) made it lovely and toasty.

I'd definitely go back!

“Breath of fresh country air”
Reviewed September 29, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you need a country break then this is the place to go. Everything you need is provided in the cottage and the garden is huge and delightful. The surrounding countryside is just beautiful and there are shops and several lovely pubs close by.vI would love to return in the winter just to see the contrast.

“A lovley quiet cottage, with easy access to many attractions to keep the little ones happy.”
Reviewed October 29, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is a lovely cottage set at the end of a country lane, there is a little stream running through the garden, so you need to keep an eye on the smaller ones, but the garden is large with plenty of space for them to run off any left over energy at the end of the day.

The cottage consists of a large sitting room with a wood burning stove, a good size kitchen and 3 bedrooms (1 twin 1 single and a double) upstairs and bathroom.

We found it an excellent location to get to many local attractions including Legoland, Blenheim palace, Roald Dahl museum etc. all within a short distance.

We would recommend this cottage, and will probably book it again in the future.

“Perfect!”

We spent a week at Forty Green Farm and had the most wonderful time. The cottage was beautiful, clean, and well-equipped. The setting was lovely - far enough out in the country that it felt peaceful and relaxing, yet close enough to find everything we could want within half an hour. Our children absolutely loved the yard with the slide and swing, and the toys and books inside were also a big hit. The simple beauty of both the cottage and the landscape were deeply restorative to us. Thank you for such a lovely stay, and we certainly hope to return!

“Helpful and accomodating”
Reviewed April 22, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I booked a stay in Forty Green Farm Cottage for the summer coming.

I just wanted to praise the owners for their helpfulness and outstanding communication, always responding to all requests within 24 hours and kindly allowing my in-laws to visit and have a look around before we booked.

Looking forward to the summer and the visit to England :)
