Stow-on-the-Wold, Cotswolds, England
South Hill Farmhouse is a substantial holiday property located on the edge of the popular market town of Stow on the Wold. The house, which was once a local farmhouse, is situated just off the Fosseway, offers vast accommodation for 17 people spread across three floors, with almost all bedrooms with an Ensuite bathroom! The huge dining room is just perfect for a huge dinner, while the multiple living rooms, plus a games room make it comfortable and ideal for a great entertaining event.

Add to this the convenience of a 5 minute walk into the centre of Stow and you have the ingredients for an excellent choice for a memorable get-together.

Entrance through to large lobby with space for coats, boots etc
Kitchen (one of two kitchens) with large Aga, two hot plates and four ovens, four ring electric hob with oven and grill, mic...

I have to agree that the representation of the property does not quite match the description and pictures that are offered online. We were very disappointed in the property. We showed up at the property after a very long and tiring day to find out that several of the bedroom doors were locked with no way to get into them....

Management response:

Thank you for your feedback and we are upset to hear that your experience was not a positive one. We do agree that there was an administrative mistake about the number of bedrooms that you booked and as it turned out you had only paid for 8 bedrooms and not 11. However as soon as we heard that you thought...

Unfortunately this cottage ruined a wedding week and stopped families, some who had traveled from Austrialia being together. The cottages is old and tired and needs some serious updating as it doesn't look or feel like the pictures on the website. The location is on a very busy road which is dangerous for children if unsupervised. During our stay we...

Management response:

We have already responded to the same complaint earlier but are happy to do so again although it seems a little unfair to get 2 reviews for the same booking. Most importantly it was not lice at the property it was woodlice which is totally different. It is a misrepresentation to call them lice. On hearing about the complaint we...

Although this is a large house which suits a large family it is not ideal for the elderly or the very young. It is on a very busy main road with a steep drive making it hard to cross the road in a car. During our stay we were unable to use the rooms on the top floor as there...

Management response:

We are sorry that the guests did not enjoy their stay at South Hill Farmhouse. We knew they were staying for a family wedding, and appreciating the importance of the occasion, made sure all the crockery, cutlery and glasses were top quality by buying in new ones. We did respond immediately to their complaint about the woodlice within 5 minutes...
