“Fantastic house for a large group and beautifully finished.”

I hired New Yatt Farm for my sister's hen party in January 2015.
It looked great in the photos and we were not disappointed. The house is enormous and absolutely beautiful and was perfect for our group of 18 girls. We had quite large scale catering going on and the facilities were faultless - two ovens, two dishwashers, an enormous fridge and freezer and plenty of glasses, cutlery, plates etc. The house can seat 18 people for dinner and there was plenty of room to relax too.

The house was really clean and tidy and the bedrooms come with White Company laundry and products and it smells amazing. The beds are soooo comfortable and all the bedrooms have a hairdryer and everything you might need.

Alan (the owner) was really easy to deal with and helpful and called to check we had everything we needed.

We had a fantastic weekend and will definitely return.

“Christmas at New Yatt Farm was a magical step back in time but with all the modern conveniences!”
Reviewed January 15, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Our stay at New Yatt Farm was even better than we expected...and we expected A LOT !!!
The house is beautifully and historically restored. Every piece of furniture, equipment, dish and linen was of superb quality. Definitely a 5 STAR experience!

“Well equipped and high quality accommodation for a big group”

We stayed at New Yatt Farm for an annual reunion of a group of adults in our 30's. We've stayed at similar cottages and barn conversions for the last 10 years but this was certainly one of the best. The short taxi ride to Witney was an advantage, but there were also pubs within walking distance. The whole place was clean and modern (and decorated for Christmas). The beds were large and comfortable and bar games were located inside the main house. Very well equipped throughout: e.g. 2 dishwashers, high quality toiletries, open fire with logs provided and kitchen consumables ranging from cayenne pepper to clingfilm. It's clear that the owners have put thought into what their customers want and then also actively sought, listened and responded to feedback for further improvements. Excellent information and communication was delivered both prior to and after the booking. Deposit returned promptly without quibble. Some of the group thought that the addition of a hot-tub would take it to the next level, but in reality we'd come back again even if New Yatt Farm remained exactly as it is.

“Fantastic farmhouse for large gatherings”
Reviewed November 23, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We had a wonderful long weekend at New Yatt. The house is beautiful - the pictures on the website although great, do not do it justice. The living areas are lovely and spacious with real wow factor and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Upstairs is a maze of beautiful and individual bedrooms with en suite facilities for most.
What sets this farmhouse above the competition is the thought and detail that has gone into it. Lovely beds and linen, toiletries in the bathrooms and a brilliantly stocked kitchen just make it so comfortable - everything has been thought of. The kitchen is particularly well equipped if you are entertaining, with two of everything so that cooking in style for large numbers isn't a problem. Finally, the owners were so kind and accommodating - both in terms of answering questions in the run up to our stay but also during the time - even dropping in a fresh change of linen for some of the beds when we had a guest change. Can't recommend New Yatt more highly.

“The best large group holiday rental we've ever had!”
Reviewed November 18, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We thoroughtly enjoyed our weekend reunion with a large group of old friends. The owners have thought of everything! We all agreed the beds were the most comfortable any of us had ever slept in, luxurious bedlinen as well. White Company bathroom accessories were a lovely touch, so were hte array of magazines for guests to flick through.

Extremely clean throughout. Huge well stocked kitchen. Friendly, considerate owners whi even made us a cake for oiur arrival! Wow.

“Fantastic property”

We stayed for 2 nights to celebrate a combined 21st and 60th birthday. The property was amazing, it was beautifully equipped. I cannot think of anything that was missing. The grounds are lovely, the furnishing all beautiful but homely. The kitchen is huge. We sat 13 comfortably around the table and there was plenty of space. The bedrooms are large and the bathrooms are really lovely.
I must mention the chef and waiter who came in and cooked and waited on us on Saturday evening. The food was absolutely lovely - the goat’s cheese starter was fantastic. If you need a chef we would definitely recommend Paul Barnard from Tailor-Made Top Nosh.

“Words almost fail me”
Reviewed October 6, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

But not quite, thankfully....
An incredible place, totally recommend it for a large family stay, or like us, a group of friends getting together. There were 7 adults and 5 kids in our group, and all of us found the place a total marvel. The owners have clearly done their research into what makes a perfect rental place, and in many respects have gone the extra mile. Even small touches like 400 DVDs, dimming lights all over the place, lights on stairwells, tons of utensils in the kitchen, bathrooms fully kitted out...the list goes on and on. We were there for 2 nights and were desperately sad to leave. I'd thoroughly recommend it!
