5 Star Cottages, 4 Star Prices and the lovely things our guests say

VisitEngland assesses holiday accommodation on five criteria (bedrooms, bathrooms, breakfast, cleanliness and hospitality) and awards EnjoyEngland star ratings to help you easily compare and choose accommodation.

VisitEngland’s unique Gold award recognises exceptional quality within a star rating or for outperforming a star rating. And our cottages are reviewed every year to ensure we’re maintaining our standards.

All of our cottages have achieved at least 4 Stars with a Gold Award. And, because we allocate cottages based on your group, we don’t charge extra for our 5 Star cottages. In fact, between you and Jean, the only thing that concerned our inspector was our pricing - he thinks it’s too low. Shhh don’t tell David.

This has been an idyllic stay! What a wonderful place you have created here! 

October 2015

We had The Hayloft and Granary to celebrate a family birthday and attend a local wedding. A great place to gather and we enjoyed the space and privacy (no queueing for the bathroom!) that we would get in a hotel but with the comfort of home.


Delightful cottage – beautifully appointed!. Lovely views and stunning sunsets! 

September 2015

Gorgeous location, wonderful venue for getting family together from all over the world. Everyone was impressed by the cottages and how beautifully presented they were. Plenty of crockery and cutlery, fridges and dishwashers for a large group. Everywhere wonderfully clean too!

June 2014

Very many thanks for all the extra thoughtful little touches to add to such a memorable time.  

October 2015

Great venue for our family reunion. Everyone appreciated the comfortable beds and ensuites. The whole place is delightful and very well thought out. The children enjoyed the space and the playing areas.


We had our granny’s birthday in a big room with tables going all the way down the room.(!!!)


....some of the party brought bikes and enjoyed serious cycling round the lanes, some walked, some just chilled. The Refectory was the hub of huge amounts of eating and drinking. It all worked perfectly. So thanks to jean for welcoming us to a splendid venue, beautifully furnished and finished.

October 2013

The highlight of the family holiday was supposed to be Drayton Manor which was fun but was completely overshadowed by our stay at Upper Rectory Farm Cottages. From the minute we arrived we have felt totally at home in the beautiful, scenic and peaceful surroundings…... Jean was courteous and hospitable and answered any questions we had, and as for the flapjacks on arrival…..the children wanted to know where we could buy some more!!!

Wonderful weekend stay with the extended family. The interlinked cottages worked a real treat. Such a pity it was for such a such time but we will be back.

March 2016

Wow! What a lovely time away. This is such an amazing place for a family get-together. Just perfect! Jean and David were so helpful, right from the first phone call I made to book the cottages through to the moment we left. What a delicious surprise the huge plate of flapjacks were, thank you very much indeed. We used some of the interconnecting cottages which were great and ideal to spend time together – all 17 of us! Everywhere is amazingly comfortable and has all you need. The younger ones loved the ghosts who turn the lights on for you when you go upstairs!

March 2015

We had a great stay at the Upper Rectory Farm Cottages. We brought over a family of 6 and were very comfortable in the cottage. Jean was a lovely host, the cottage was well equipped, and the grounds were pretty and peaceful. We would recommend and would stay there again.

We had a really lovely time, your cottages are so lovely in every way. Thank you so much for everything you have done to make a holiday at Upper Rectory so comfortable, so clean, so well-equipped and so welcoming. Muriel

August 2018

With four families to accommodate it often proves difficult to find somewhere suitable, but Upper Rectory Farm met all our needs.  Watching the sunset most evenings was amazing and really relaxing after busy days.  We all went to Conkers which both parents and children enjoyed .  My husband and I visited the National Memorial Arboretum, which took our breath away as it was so much better than we imagined, and the rest of the family went to the National Space Centre which they described as amazing.  During our stay we also visited other places and although the cottages seem to be rather "remote", in fact most places visited were within 30mins or less.  Our family all agreed that we would highly recommend Upper Rectory Farm to friends. Patrick and Betty.

August 2018

This was a fantastic venue for a family weekend we had the Piggery, the Byre and the Cow Shed for a gathering of 15. everything was just perfect we would definitely book again. Jean was most welcoming and the flapjacks went down a treat! Gloria and family.
