The Experience

Perhaps it’s the gentle, unstuffy attitude of Kate and Edward. Or the great position of the house with its glorious views across the Golden Valley. Whichever, you’ll feel comforted and invigorated by your stay in this family home. Kate is a keen gardener, swathes of white tulips flourish under trees heavy with white blossom and she is happy to show you round her cutting garden.

You feel nicely cocooned in the guest wing: a pretty bedroom above your own comfortable, book-filled sitting room opening to a flowery courtyard.  Sleep soundly on the softest of pillows, wake to deep countryside peace and a delicious breakfast. Kate brings in a tray piled high with different jars of cereals, a bowl of fruit, sometimes compote, yogurt, tasty bacon, home apple juice and eggs from the hens.

There’s a profusion of inspiring gardens to visit; you can join the  Cotswold Trail from the door or borrow bikes; and the village pub does great food.

We recently had a lovely 1 night stay at Well Farm. Kate’s communication beforehand was very friendly and helpful, and the directions clear despite Well Farm being quite rural! Their house is beautiful and as a guest you are given a lovely sitting room off the main house, which leads up to a cosy bedroom and en suite bathroom. We had a lovely evening relaxing in the sitting room by the fire and then dinner at a pub in the village. Their gardens are fantastic and well worth a stroll around. Overall a lovely, cosy stay and we certainly hope to be back in the future.

Deborah, Southport

I would like to endorse what other guests have said about this superlative b&b and its charming owners. It was a joy to stay at Well Farm and we hope to return.

Cathy, Dublin

Kate and Edward were charming and helpful. The pretty bedroom and sitting room below looked over a garden brimming with blossom and clusters of white tulips. More garden flowers in vases inside, really comfortable bed with lovely linen, tea and biscuits and a good breakfast. A special place to stay.

Wendy, Bristol

This is a gorgeous little B&B set in very pretty gardens. The room is delightfully peaceful and you have the added benefit of a generous, private sitting room to relax in. Edward and Kate are wonderful hosts and the delicious breakfast in the morning includes eggs from their own hens. The village is well-placed to enjoy trips to other charming Cotswold villages. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would very much recommend to others.

Timmy and Sarah, London

Absolutely loved our stay! beautiful setting, lovely bedroom above a sitting room where we were welcome with a lovely cup of tea and biscuits and where we also enjoyed a delicious breakfast. Bed was incredibly comfortable, and everything was of highest quality, combined with the warmth and charm of Kate and Edward, who made us feel as if we were at home, and clearly work hard at keeping the house and surrounding gardens with tennis court, fields, vegetable patches etc. in top shape. It was just lovely wandering around the premises for 20 minutes before breakfast and enjoy the beauty of it all.

Cara and Johannes, Petersfield

Everything about this B&B is terrific. Kate and Edward are friendly, polite and gentle hosts who really put you at ease and want you to be able to relax. You stay in your own annex with a lovely large, airy, light and comfy sitting room, where you also have your breakfast, and a similarly light, airy and spacious bedroom and huge bathroom upstairs. The bed is enormous and the mattress is just right. Breakfast is delicious and made with local produce; the eggs and apple juice come from the farm itself. I didn't ask about the marmalade but it was so good it had to be home made too! Lovely.

John, Cheltenham

We can only endorse the other enthusiastic comments about Well Farm. It's delightful, comfortable and friendly. We had a wonderful weekend there.

Mark, London

The description of Well Farm on Alastair Sawday (The Experience) sums it up perfectly. Kate & Edward are very welcoming & friendly hosts who provide a relaxed atmosphere in their beautiful home. It's great walking country with good pubs & cafes within reach on foot or within a short drive. The weather wasn't on our side so it was ideal to be able to come back to our own cosy sitting-room with its cheery stove & coffee, tea & biscuits on hand. A perfect B&B whatever the weather.

Geri & Philip, Bristol

This is a truly special place to stay. Edward and Kate were the perfect hosts, giving us a warm welcome and yet also giving us space and peace to relax and unwind. Well farm is stunning and the room and bathroom beautiful. Snowdrops in the bedroom, a warm cosy fire downstairs and their own eggs and apple juice. We left after 3 nights feeling utterly well rested.

Daniel and Sarah, London

11 out of ten. We had a wonderful three days stay. Very cold and sunny outside but cosy and warm in. Lovely bed and linen, also great ensuite. Beautiful gardens, free to roam and such friendly hosts. Altogether a place we would love to return to.

Patricia, Chalgrove

This perfect slice of England is presented so beautifully and is a wonderfully peaceful place to stay. The welcome was so warm and friendly; we would come back time after time if we could.

Paul, London

This is a lovely, peaceful place to stay with a beautiful garden in an unspoilt area of the Cotswolds. If you enjoy walking you can't go wrong here. Kate and Edward are kind and helpful hosts with plentiful local knowledge. The accommodation is delightful too.

Carol, Boughton Aluph, kent

A friendly welcome to a delightful place, where we stayed for three nights. Lovely garden and wonderful, peaceful surroundings. The accommodation is over two floors, and both the bedroom and the sitting room are comfortable and generously sized. No hesitation in recommending Well Farm equally to those new to the Cotswolds and to those returning.

Barrie, Not a city, north-east Hampshire

Staying at Well Farm is a real treat! Kate is a charming and generous hostess who cooks delicious breakfasts with eggs from her own hens and juice from her orchard. The accommodation is deluxe and spacious with a comfortable sitting room filled with interesting books and magazines and very pretty and well equipped bedroom and en suite bathroom. Everything has been thought of. Well Farm is conveniently located with wonderful walks, good shopping and two excellent pubs nearby. It is a delightful place to stay, we felt very priviledged, and we hope to return.

Julia, London

A highly recommended place to stay! We had a lovely time at Well Farm during our spring escape to England. It was a luxury to have not only the large and cosy bedroom, but also a spacious sitting room with a fire, lots of books and local maps and two sofas to snuggle up on! Kate and Edward are wonderful hosts - hurry up with visiting Well Farm and you might still have the chance to meet Jaffa's the labrador's hilarious five puppies!

Irene, Frankfurt am Main

We had a lovely relaxing stay, booked at very short notice. It was wonderful to have our own private sitting room included, and two good pubs with great food nearby (we'd particularly recommend the Bell in Sapperton). Kate and Edward made us feel very welcome, as did Jaffa and Dot! Good home cooked breakfast too, plus gardening chat.

Andy, Abingdon

We had a fantastic time staying at Well Farm and loved the spacious accommodation and peaceful surroundings. Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We would return there anytime. Thank you for our lovely stay.

Kathrin, Bristol

Tranquil setting close to many great Cotswolds walks. Kate and Edward were fantastically hospitable and accommodating. The room is like a self-contained apartment with a large cozy sitting room and an elegant bedroom/bathroom upstairs. Village pub within walking distance with good reasonably priced food and a friendly atmosphere.

tim, Buckinghamshire

Well Farm is a perfect base from which to explore this beautiful part of the country. We enjoyed peace and tranquility and the comforts of home with a lovely big bedroom and bathroom and a comfortable sitting room with all we could wish for. Kate was extremely welcoming and kind and arranged supper for us at The Crown which was 2 minutes away and just what we wanted after walking all afternoon in Cider With Rosie country. Comfortable bed, beautifully laundered linen and stunning gardens. We have returned home eager to implement the ideas we picked up from Kate's inspirational garden.

Kate & Edward Gordon Lennox

Kate and Edward moved here in 1998, creating the garden from scratch; they love sharing their home. Much thought goes into everything from good food to the best linen. Edward is happy to get out maps and suggest walks. Kate knows all the local gardens, and she runs a garden and flower design business - Rich Pickings - growing some of the flowers here. Friendly dogs Jaffa and Dot live here too.
