“Happy memories...”

We were a group of friends with children, aged 5-9. The property was easy to find and when we arrived the first thing I noticed was the lovely smell inside the property. Often overlooked. The lay-out of the house was very good for a group of friends and children - partly because it is slightly higgledy piggledy so that everyone has their own space - but also because all the bedrooms are of a very good standard so that nobody feels hard done by. This is so often the case in a house with an obvious master with additional small bedrooms. Equally - there were plenty of shower-room/bathrooms - all of which were boutique hotel standard. One of the 2 baths couldn't be used - which was a shame as we had plenty of children to bath at the same time - but I wouldn't mark the house down for this as in every other aspect it was absolutely excellent.
The kitchen/dining space was lovely - with plenty of light and windows overlooking the front and back garden. It was ideal as the children were able to be seen wherever they were in the garden. The garden itself was ideal for children...with football goals and plenty of space to run around.
There are lovely views from the dining table and we had the magnificent sight of a barn owl most nights flying past the window ! There was no road noise, and neither of the gardens were overlooked.
The equipment is of a high standard throughout the house (miele/sub-zero etc). Everything worked well and had been thought through - eg there were 2 dishwashers; an office-style waterchilled water dispenser.The firepit/BBQ was well used as we had lovely weather during our stay. Lots of nice touches...cared for herbs for cooking; recipe books.
Plenty of outdoor games..table-tennis; badminton; croquet, and indoor board games;DVDs, books etc.
We could have stayed at the house for the duration of our stay (4 nights) as it was so pleasant and relaxing, but we did venture out to visit the Cotswold Wildlife Park (recommended and pretty close) and there are plenty of public footpaths, including one which can be accessed directly from the end of the drive.
New Yatt village itself is quite small but it is only 2 miles to Witney - which was a lovely little town...with everything you may need. Had a handy Waitrose. Only a few miles to Blenheim Palace - which can be accessed from public footpaths from a village called Coombe.
Highly recommend for groups of families...but I can also imagine that it would be great fun for adult friends without children. Alan the landlord was very good to deal with, efficient by email; dropped in to make sure everything ok and returned the deposit within 24 hours.

“Absolutely beautiful house”
Reviewed April 27, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This is the most beautiful house which has been renovated to the highest spec. We were a group of girls on a hen weekend and we all like our creature comforts and everyone was extremely happy! Very easy access to Oxford and we loved Witney. All the bedrooms were amazing with fab bathrooms, and we loved all the White Company products in every bathroom. The kitchen was an absolute highlight - all the mod cons and the MOST enormous fridge I've ever seen! The sitting room is stunning with a lovely log fire. We got onto the wi-fi easily so internet access was no problem. I would have loved to stay longer and we've all vowed to go back with our families as it looks like a great house for children too. We didn't really use the outdoors as we were busy in the day in Oxford but lots of space for kids to run around safely, and the barbecue/fire pit looked like it would have been fun to use. The owner Alan was available throughout the weekend on the phone for any questions. Highly recommend!!

“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.

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”
Reviewed December 16, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

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.
