Stay With Us
Our cottages are beautifully converted farmhouses which have been restored to retain their original features. Four of our self-catered cottages are just a few steps away from our organic farmshop and one is in the village of Daylesford. Just 90 minutes from London, all five cottages provide guests with the opportunity to reconnect with nature, retreat from the everyday stresses of bustling urban life, and experience the beauty of the Cotswold countryside.
Travelling and holidays are a time to indulge, so each cottage comes with a relaxing class in our Bamford Haybarn Spa for every adult guest. You can enhance your stay with further holistic classes and treatments, a course at our Cookery School, a floristry or craft workshop and by dining in our farmshop restaurants and at our sister pub, The Wild Rabbit in the nearby village of Kingham.
Daylesford cottage guests are able to discover all we have to offer in our farmshop, at our Cookery School, Floristry Workshop, the Bamford Barn and Haybarn Spa and enjoy a 10% discount during their stay.
Daylesford is one of the most pioneering farms in the UK. We want to lead by example, farming, growing and producing according to sustainable organic principles. Our cottages are no exception, to discover more of our sustainability initiatives.

The Apple Store
As its name suggests, this cottage was the main store for the farm’s produce. The converted Apple Store is a retreat in which to relax and escape, with a roaring log fire, thickly woven rugs, pure cotton sheets and delicious food on your doorstep from our farmshop.
The Apple Store is also available for a 2 night midweek stay. As part of your stay you will receive a luxurious welcome pack, and the choice of a yoga, pilates, meditation or sound healing class per adult guest at the Bamford Haybarn Spa. The stay excludes classes in the spa.
The Potting Shed
Traditionally used to store bric-a-brac from the farm, this converted cottage has a large double aspect fire connecting the main sitting room to the Snug, a room filled with time-consuming books. This homely cottage provides a spacious family retreat and can accommodate two young children in bunk beds.
Honeysuckle Cottage is one of the traditional estate cottages, still to be found on the farm today, just a two minute stroll away from the farmshop. Located in the village of Daylesford, the cottage is detached from its neighbours, bursting with charm and period character on the outside and modern luxuries within.
This class includes basic opening and balancing poses, sun salutations, shoulder and hip exercises as well as back and forward bends. Yogic breathing techniques help to bring energy and rhythm to the practice while final relaxation (savasana) leaves you feeling peaceful and refreshed.
Originally created as a remedial technique for dancers, the pilates method focuses on proper alignment and working within a controlled range of motion. Pilates is a safe and effective regime for strengthening the body and is exceptional for improving core strength and posture. It is a particularly beneficial technique when working with injuries and in dealing with back pain. Also known as body sculpting, regular practice of pilates can lead to long, supple and well-defined muscles and a more toned body overall.
Mindfulness is the ability to see what’s going on in our mind, body and the world around us. As we become more accepting of our own thoughts, we become more empathetic with others. Mindfulness is a proven means of combating stress as it helps us understand and accept what we can and cannot change. This class will help you develop mindfulness techniques to include in your everyday life.
Sound has been used in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing. Using rhythm and frequency, sound helps to facilitate shifts in our brainwaves to restore harmony and balance to our bodies. Our crystal singing bowls have been infused with gemstones, crystal and minerals to emit different healing vibrations that correspond to the chakras, organs and cells. These sessions can provide results for a variety of issues including sleep disorders, anxiety and stress management.
