“Great place for a Wedding, or big group party”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We hired all the cottages, farmhouse and barn for a wedding party. The different accomodations have various bedrooms, single and doubles.
There is also room for a marquee for the wedding, albeit on a slight slope, which was difficult for the older members of the party.
We really enjoyed the sports hall with 2 full size snooker tables, and a table tennis table and some outdoor games.
The large indoor spaces were a great opportunity for us to get together and eat together and chat.
Overall it was a great experience and could only have been bettered with the addition of a hot tub or sauna room.
The Wi-Fi didn't work when we were there which was disappointing.
Oh yes and its close to Carsington water too which is a great place to do sport or shop or eat.

“Perfect Wedding Venue”
Reviewed 7 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Just returned from an amazing stay at Standlow. This is a perfect location for a wedding.
Plenty of space and the views are incredible. The wedding party booked out all the accommodation so we had the whole place to ourselves.
All of the guests were impressed with the standard of the rooms and facilities. The kitchens are well equipped and there is ample comfortable furniture both indoors and outdoors for winding down in the evenings.
The only minor niggles were the lack of a plug socket close enough to a mirror to be able to see to dry my hair and my bedroom door handle was broken so the door had to be wedged shut. The views from the Lavender Room more than made up for these two tiny glitches.
Standlow Farm is a really lovely spot for a huge group get together or a romantic break for two! Highly recommended.

“This was a fantastic place to have a holiday”
Reviewed 6 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We have just spent a long weekend at Standlow Farm for our annual family gathering. We vary in age from 2 years to early 70s. It was great for all of us. The cottages were very clean and well equipped and the barn was a really lovely sociable space to eat together. The games room meant that we could play together when we weren't watching the Olympics! We are already planning our return trip next year!

“Excellent place for a family weekend away”
Reviewed 17 January 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Just returned from a long weekend at Standlow farm. We stayed in The Barn, and Foxglove and Clover cottages and they were all beautifully decorated and had everything that you would need. We used the Games room, which unfortunatly was freezing (it was January!) but was a lot of fun with the table tennis, air hockey and pool tables. There are options in all of the cottages for either double or twin beds and enough clean and spacious bathrooms so there wasn't a wait. They also allow pets! The local area is gorgeous and great for walks, we even headed to the Red Lion pub just a short walk away for sunday lunch which was amazing and the staff were really accommadating!
