“A great day out”
Reviewed 28 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We visited Sheep Drove Organic Farm during its open day. It was great to see all the animals and that they were kept in good conditions and all seemed happy. We enjoyed looking around the farm and the natural burial site (which we may well use).

The day was really well organised, the food was superb (hog roast), the band and morris dancers made it feel very traditional, and the farm walk was lovely and tranquil.

We'll certainly return.

“Our perfect wedding! ”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in October 2015

After having our wedding reception at the farm, which was nothing short of perfection, with wonderful , helpful staff. We had booked out all of the rooms here. They were lovely! Beautifully furnished and finished. Our room (honeymoon suite) was so nice! Beautiful big high comfortable bed! The kitchen was a great social place and the breakfast the next morning was beautiful! I so wish we could come back and stay!

“Great for large groups”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We were looking for somewhere to meet up for one night for a group of old school friends who now live all over the country, with our wives and 9 children (ages between 12 years old and 9 months). Not easy to find somewhere accommodating - Woodend was perfect for our needs. The rooms off the courtyard were great for the younger children as it meant they didn't get disturbed by the adults in the evening. The older children loved having a TV in their bedroom which meant we didn't see them for most of the (wet February) day!
Kerry was very accommodating in letting us check in a bit early and check out late, which was great given we were only staying one night.
Lovely to wake up to fresh pastries delivered to the property.
We'd definitely book again, hopefully in the summer when we can enjoy the walks and surrounding countryside.
If I had to say one negative was only having one small 'sharp' knife that wan't very sharp, so if you are booking just remember to take your own.

“Cosy, well equipped, and welcoming”
Reviewed 4 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015
person found this review helpful

We (a group varying between 17 and 19) stayed at Sheepdrove over New Year. Although we arrived in driving rain and slightly anxious as to what accommodation for 20 people would look like, we were all delighted by what we found.

Living space: The main communal room is a little small for the number of people, but given that each person has their own bedrooms (with en-suite bathrooms - a real plus) that didn't matter too much. Kerry kindly provided us with an additional table to tack onto the end of the wooden one, so everyone was able to eat together in the evenings. One thing we would suggest is rotating the table 90degrees and pushing it to the dresser-end of the room. We did this, and it allowed us to move the armchairs into a cluster around the fire, and have a separate "lounge" area.

The kitchen: the kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, hob and oven. It is well-equipped (no grater though, which, together with sharp knives, we felt the kitchen lacked). Breakfast is plentiful and delicious (the home made granola and honey in particular went down very well). Plenty of large pans, although not many big serving dishes or spoons, so "formal" dining is a bit limited.

Around the area: there was a nice pub about 3 miles walk (or a 10 minute drive) away, together with a small Co-Op for essentials. Sheepdrove is also very close to the Ridgeway, and we spent a good few hours on a long walk there on New Years Eve.

Summary: All in all a lovely stay, and one we would all recommend to large groups of people on a short stay. The lack of a communal area may be a bit off-putting for a longer visit, but our three nights there were very comfortably spent and I think we would all consider returning in the future.

“Great for gatherings and very reasonably priced!”
Reviewed 2 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Stayed here for one night with a group of friends for a Christmas gathering. We were a party of 12 adults and 6 children and this place worked perfectly. The house was clean and very comfortable. Be aware there is no TV in the communal area but each bedroom has its own. It was nice to have some water, juice and yoghurt in the fridge provided for free by the accommodation along with tea and coffee. The only slight negative point is, apart from chocolate croissants, we were not given any other choice for pastries at breakfast time. Although,you can cook your own food there, we opted to have our meals at a couple of local pubs just a short drive away where we found the people to be very friendly and food to be good. I saw this place listed on an accommodation website but booked directly instead and Kerry was very helpful and accommodating. The rest of the party and I really enjoyed our stay at Woodend and would definitely go back and do it again.
