“Terrible value for money - not luxury, not very nice at all.”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed at Arden Hill Farm House in early September, a party of 16 including several young children. While there was a good amount of space we found the property to be basic, very tired and run down with many things that were broken, faulty, and damaged. The pictures given on the website and on here are from many many years ago.

This is not luxury accommodation and all our party felt it was terrible value for money. We have stayed in many similar types of properties, including those with hot tubs and pools previously. This is the first time we have been disappointed and the first time we have ever left a negative review.

When I contacted the owner with my feedback, after alerting them to some problems during the weekend and again as we left, and asking for compensation because we had all been so very disappointed, all my points were dismissed. Below is a description of the problems we noted over the weekend.

Water leaked from one ensuite shower through the ceiling.
Shower door in other ensuite doesn't close by about 10 cm.
Both other showers heads and hoses in main bathrooms are falling apart and shower holder does not fit the shower head.

The back of the outside bench fell off when we sat on it - rotted right through, and person fell off (and there was evidence of previous attempts to bodge a fix at this point so clearly it was known there was a problem). Table also had rotten planks hanging down.

Some chairs in dining room/ kitchen (at least 6) the cushioning in the seat has collapsed, so you balance on the square wooden frame, essentially falling through the middle of the seat. Highly uncomfortable. Bent curtain rail in dining room. Dining room table is odd, too big to pass food across it at a sit down meal, too big to easily access all the seats, too wide for the room.

Fridge's handle broken off completely, shelves missing, shelves not strong enough for normal use and makes an awful loud noise every so often.

Blinds in kitchen dirty, door trim on oven falling off, light doesn't work in the oven. Melted trim above microwave. Board underneath oven chipped and worn out.

Hot tub is in front driveway area, which is shared space with another house. Most of our party were too uncomfortable to use it in this location.

Back garden, while mown, has an uneven and coming loose patio and path, stinging nettles around edges of garden, fences falling down in multiple places and dead plants in a sink. Odd uneven tarmac area, top of oil tank broken off and trolley in hedge. Horrible view out the back of the next door falling down barn. Not a pleasant space to be in and not safe for small children.

The snooker table is not level, pockets are missing bolts so balls just fall onto the floor, triangle broken and unusable (appears to have been attempted to be fixed with nails and gaffer tape in the past, still broken now will nails hanging out.) For neither pool nor snooker is there a complete set of balls available (for pool, cue ball is the wrong size, for snooker all the reds are pinks, and ironically the pink is missing!

Dirty pelmet in one of the back bedrooms (drips visible on it). Unclean mirrors Dirty exterior windows.
Dirty / stained carpets - really grey with dirt
Many many light bulbs gone in multiple rooms
A number of clocks around the property - all broken / flat batteries.
Broken handle on the wardrobe on landing
Radiator in utility room doesn't turn on
Ripped curtains in the first bedroom (I also had to reattach
one curtain at an end in here)
Curtains at the bottom of the stairs don’t fit
Blue tac stains in multiple places on many walls. Blue tac currently on walls
Pictures in hall very faded and stained with spray cleaning products
Picture in kitchen by back door extremely faded
Modem in bedroom 6 - flashing lights all night make it difficult to sleep
Very creaky bed in double bedroom - impossible to sleep
Downstairs toilet - whole cistern unstable, rocks when in use

“Fantastic hen weekend property!”

person found this review helpful

Arden Hill farmhouse is a great property! We were a group of 13 ladies staying there for my best friend's hen weekend. The house is in a fabulous setting and the hot tub is just the cherry on the cake!!
I booked a wine tasting company to come out to the house to do an event for us there and the owners were more than accommodating for this.
We also used the outside catering company which is recommended on the property site - absolutely recommend this - the food was amazing and the guy who came from them was really friendly.
The house was perfect for a 2 night break for us. I will definitely be looking at the other properties in the range available for any future visits in that part of our beautiful country.

“80th Birthday weekend”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed here as part of a group of 11 to celebrate an 80th birthday weekend. There was plenty of room for us all, although a couple of the bedrooms were rather cramped. Well appointed kitchen, lovely big dining area and snooker room provided good entertainment (although some shots were hard to play due to limited space). Hot tub was a hit with all generations. Used the park and ride for a visit into Stratford, which worked out well. Not quite sure I'd class the standard as 'luxury', but certainly comfortable enough for a weekend away.

“Perfect for a hen”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed here for a hen weekend. The house is great. Clean and loads of space for us all. The hot tub was great. They provided contact details of taxis so we could get back and fore town easily. Just drive slowly on the main road leading up to the house, its wasy to miss the turning.
