My husband and I stayed at Yalbury Cottage for two nights to celebrate his birthday. We stayed at YC two years ago and were hoping it was as good as we remembered, it was! Another couple joined us, on our recommendation, and they were not disappointed. It is exactly how you would imagine 'a cottage', thatched roof low beams and... More

My Fiancé treated me to a two night stay for bed breakfast and evening meal for my birthday in 2016 and we were so blown away by the food prepared by a chef clearly passionate about what he does and amazing value for such quality, that this was our first choice for our wedding celebrations this February. We were not... More

My wife and I were treated by our son and his wife. The whole evening went like clockwork and I do like having pre and after dinner drinks in comfortable armchairs/settees. The food was delicious and the service perfectly judged. What's not to like!

We had the Christmas menu served to 25 guests. The food was excellent and the staff attentive and professional. The dining room and lounge are intimate rooms and good for family gatherings. In the summer the gardens are very pleasant for a drink before lunch or dinner.

We booked a meal with a night's stay to celebrate family birthdays, and couldn't have been happier with our choice. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was prettily furnished, and very comfortable. Lovely touches such as a selection of nice teabags and individual portions of real... More

Yarlbury Cottage is a cosy and intimate venue, set out in the country. The food is surperb. We took a couple of friends there for a celebration meal, and they declared it was the best meal they had ever had.
