What our guests say

The Stable is a treat – a rare combination of aestheticism, comfort and functionality. We had a thoroughly relaxing time. Shower and bed are fantastic. Hope to be back – maybe to fill all Holt Farm cottages!

A superb location and accommodation, everything we could possibly want. Weather was great for our many varied walks. Scenery and wildlife is fantastic.

– Diane, Coventry August 2013

I would just like to say how much we enjoyed our stay in Wain House.   After searching for some weeks for the ideal cottage, Wain House ticked all the boxes and certainly didn’t disappoint.  The standards you keep are very high and to be commended.   The cottage was perfect, the area is beautiful and the sun shone for us.   What more could we want!!!

Thank you from all of us. Holt Farm was a wonderful place to stay, we couldn’t have chosen a more fitting and beautiful house for our family celebration, wish the weekend had lasted longer.
Kindest regards, Veronica and all the family.
