5 star GOLD January 2016.

bidwell farm cottages have again been award the Visit England 5 star GOLD AWARD for both cottages. 2016 will be the 17th year we have been awarded the 5 star grading but this year all credit goes to our lovely daughter Caroline who has now taken over the family business. She and her husband Toby live closeby and all the website telephone numbers go directly through to their home. Richard and Patsy will continue to live in the main Farmhouse but will be available if guests have any requests.

book a beauty therapist to visit your cottage to give you or your loved one a pampering session.


rural broadband connection January 2016 The broadband connections to both cottages have recently been re-assessed and the Cowbyre now has a separate BT connection. Mobile telephone connections are excellent in this valley.

tv series - river cottage (9 miles) -

after several years of listening to guests' stories of visits to River Cottage, we decided to test out River cottage hospitality and booked Richard into a one day bread making workshop this January. He thoroughly enjoyed his day out and we now offer rustic River cottage inspired loaves in our welcome pack. In February 2011 we booked into one of their 'Friday nights' dining events. The dining room holds about 60 people and was full, mostly with guests from far and wide. There was a party atmosphere and the food was delicious. The buildings and surroundings are rustic, as expected, with wash rooms being outside in the courtyard and the car park being at the top of the hill with a tractor/trailer to transport guests. Paths are stoney so suitable shoes are essential. Verdict - we will go again as we had a fun night.

our first Dutch visitors

"Wij hebben een fantastische week gehad hier in Bidwell Farm. Dit is absoluut wat iedereen zich voorstelt bij een engelse countryside holiday. The Haybarton Cottage is prachtig, heel erg cosy met mooie ruime kamers, elk met  eigen (net gerenoveerd en prachtige) bedkamer en een gezellige engelse woonkeuken en woonkamer. De omgeving en het uitzicht zijn schitterend. Upottery is een echtt authenthiek engels dorpje, denk aan de “Sense and Sensibility” film en je vindt het hier! Onze dochtertjes vonden het allemaal prachtig – iedere ochtend en avond werden de eenden uit en in hun nachtverblijf gelaten en gevoerd, alle ruimte om buiten te spelen en een speeltuintje. De natuur is hier prachtig en ongerept, zoiets vindt je in Nederland niet meer. Wij komen zeker terug!"

[Martijn and Mariette Kleibergen, Isa, Julia and Sarah]
