Summary

Hoo Farm is a fabulous Cotswold stone farmhouse sat within grounds of almost 70 acres, sleeping 10+3 guests, in five bedrooms (with the +3 option being a double sofa bed, suitable for two adults, and a “Z” bed, suitable for one child), with four stylish bathrooms. This spacious home has been renovated over the years to create a spectacular property with a contemporary interior and modern facilities which include wireless internet access, two Smart TVs and a well-equipped kitchen. The property itself has a beautiful exterior to match its interior, with climbing roses trailing around the stone mullion windows, and an exquisite garden which encompasses the farmhouse.

Hoo Farm enjoys a tranquil setting with panoramic countryside views. Guests are encouraged to explore the extensive grounds it sits within, ranging from fields with livestock to rich woodlands and a paddock. The owners’ horses roam free in the neighbouring fields, and guests are welcome to stable their horses on site, by prior arrangement with the owners, making use of the many scenic bridleways. There is ample off-street parking available on the driveway.

Location

Hoo Farm is located in the peaceful hamlet of Laverton, just three miles away from the popular village of Broadway. Laverton is off the beaten track and consists of attractive 17th century properties surrounded by the glorious countryside of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are plenty of cycle routes and walks to explore, including sections of the Cotswold Way and the Winchcombe Way, a lesser known long distance trail which focusses on hidden gems. This trail links Laverton to the neighbouring village of Stanton, a picturesque and idyllic village with thatched cottages and a well-regarded pub, The Mount Inn. Stanton is also home to Cotswold Riding, an equine facility run by Jill Carenza which provides hacks for riders of all abilities. To the north of Laverton lies Buckland, a quiet village with the award-winning Buckland Manor restaurant which offers an unforgettable dining experience whether it be lunch, afternoon tea or dinner.

Laverton is within easy reach of many popular North Cotswold villages including Snowshill, with Snowshill Manor and the Lavender Fields, Broadway, with its variety of tea rooms, restaurants and art galleries, and Winchcombe, home of Sudeley Castle. The region offers a wide range of activities for all ages and a firm favourite is the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway which is a 29 mile round trip from Broadway to Cheltenham, passing through gorgeous scenery with several station stops. Further afield destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle and Oxford are accessible for day trips.
