“True taste of farm stay hospitality ”
Reviewed 21 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

After visiting from Australia and traveling around the U.K. we found this stay one of the highlights. Set on a quiet yet convenient location, our stay was very relaxing with working farms adjoining the property. Local pubs were a great option for evening meals.. our hosts Theresa and Jim were very welcoming- highly recommended.

“A beautiful little paradise”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Me and my daughter loved our stay at this lovely well equiped cabin, so peaceful and the surroundings are just breathtaking and beautiful, really didn't want to leave but we will be returning next summer for sure. If you are looking for a break away from all the stresses and strains of everyday life to relax and unwind this is the perfect place in a quiet and beautiful part of England yet so accessible to major roads. We traveled to a Wolf Sanctuary in Reading and a Donkey Sanctuary in Oxford on a couple of days which was lovely but just spending quality time with my daughter at the cabin was also lovely. Nothing more lovely than being surrounded by animals and nature, Our hosts Theresa and Jim who own the farm where wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed and were very thoughtful and helpful, lovely people! Brenda the other lovely lady who helps Theresa was also lovely and took my daughter plum picking which she grately enjoyed! Wonderful holiday from start to finish! Thank you Theresa, Jim and Brenda for helping to make our holiday even more special than we expected it to be!

“Stunning Escape”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This lodge was absolutely beautiful, the scenery was breath taking, and waking up to the summery flowery view in the morning was very refreshing. Theresa was very polite, welcoming, and extremely helpful, she recommended places for us to visit and pointed out local attractions on a map (stored in the lodge along with many other leaflets covering varied activities and areas to visit). I would 100% go back to the lodge, and would recommend this place to anyone who needs a well deserved break away in the country! The lodge itself was well kitted out and very comfortable, a home from home. We were even given eggs, milk, butter, honey and a fresh loaf! I hope to return to the lodge, and will be recommending to family and friends. Thanks Theresa & Jim for a great escape! K&G

“Wonderful place with the most hospitable hosts.”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife has planned a visit to England for our family and her parents. She picked the Lakeside Town Farm for her parents as she expected it to be a perfect place for them to enjoy their stay.
We have seen the it from the pictures posted online but once we arrived it appeared to us even more astounding than imagined. Not far away from the motorway that drove us here from London we indeed entered a place of country peace and serenity. The cabin was extremely clean and neat. We had a nice welcoming pack left for us to indulge. Not long after we arrived came Theresa – a woman of great delicacy and assistance. She explained us all we needed to know – from how is everything functioning to what are the best places to visit or eat. Her sweet dog Nely became instantly a friend of ours and our daughter who sought her company throughout the entire stay.
We were impressed by the gorgeous garden Theresa maintains – with the loan the flowers and the pond filled by a tiny waterfall.
We enjoyed the tranquil view from the big verandah either at breakfast and dinner or just sipping a cup of coffee or tea.
As being the first time of coming to England to my parents in law we undertook the not quite easy task of visiting as many interesting places as possible both in London and the area around. There was so much to see and after some evaluation it occurred to us that the Town farm is indeed really strategically positioned close to many interesting places – either some famous spots from Midsomer Murders TV series or some splendid palaces and gardens. The motorway leading its way both to London and Oxford was just five minutes car drive.
Last but not least I have to express my tremendous gratefulness to Jim and Theresa Clark who tried to assist us in every possible way from recommending us the right places and times to go to sending me back the laptop I absent-mindedly forgot when we left for home.
Thank you Theresa. I hope we see you soon.
