“I just wanted to send you an email to say how wonderful our stay at Standlow Farm was. It far outweighed my expectations.
 
The facilities were fantastic & perfectly catered for us as a large group of 22. Everyone commented on how comfy the beds were & also how brilliant the blackout blinds were! It really is the little things that make a stay. 
 
We used the Barn to self-cater for our whole group and the kitchen was so well stocked with equipment – it made it so easy for us! 
 
I would definitely recommend it to anyone else I know looking for somewhere to go with a big group but would also hope to come back myself in the future. The views are something to behold that is for sure!! 
 
The process from booking to arrival to leaving was also made really easy! I book a lot of accommodation for my work & this has been one of the easiest processes.”
