Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply stunning Our family of five stayed at Highclere and had such a wonderful time. The house is beautifully decorated and the owners have clearly put such a lot of time and love into the property. The bed linen is fabulous, as is the lovely sitting room, perfect for watching the sun go down. We would love to return one day again and enjoy this stunning property and the equally delightful area again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your beautiful Farm! Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful Farm! We had the loveliest time. From the get go everything was easy - the information sent through prior to our arrival was very helpful and you thought of the littlest things to make our time at the Farm comfortable. The kids just loved the horses! We had great weather, so were able to explore and check out the gully. And the fireplace kept us very toasty at night! We particularly liked your aesthetic and attention to detail. You've both obviously spent a lot of time getting the Farm to where it is now - so hats off to you! We'd love to stay again. Thanks again! Gemma

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A delicious break at Highclere Thank-you for the opportunity to have a delicious break at Highclere – we all loved it, and wished we could have lingered longer over another breakfast, mused beside the river and creeks, snuggled by the fire, wandered once more up the country road, or……............. You have both done the house & surrounds proud, and in years to come all the planting out of shrubs and trees, will make that vision in your minds a reality – I could see it too ‘cause I love the garden, and all things growing. Peter spent quite a lot of time asleep in front of the fire - he did enjoy time out with no phone-calls to take care of! I hope Highclere overflows with guests, and laughter and good times for many years to come! Helen, Peter and family
