Graham & Rose Burgess February 2017

Having sold our house and not having the build of our new bungalow completed we were in a difficult position of not having anywhere to live. On trawling the Internet we finally found Oulton House Farm Holiday Cottages. We stayed for 2 months in total (December 2016 to February 2017), 1 month in Snowdrop, the second month in Daisy. Both cottages were equipped with everything we required; washing machine/tumble dryer, comfortable beds, sheets/towels changed weekly, centrally heated.

We cannot praise Rachael and Oulton House Farm Cottages highly enough. Anyone in our position looking for a longer term stay or just a long weekend look no further than here. Children are well catered for as well. 

Thank you.

Hi Rachael,

I just wanted to say ' Thank You' again now that we have arrived home. Organising a holiday for over 30 people is no easy task. Oulton House Farm was perfect. From the youngest to the oldest we had such a good time. We loved the brilliantly equipped cottages and all the facilities. Not to mention the farm itself with newborn calves and wonderful countryside views. Everyone was so kind. Thanks you so much, Sue

Hi Rachael.

I Just want to say what a fabulous time we had staying in Foxglove, Bluebell, Cornflower and Lavender for my 60th and family" big weekend ". The cottages surprised us all so comfortable, clean and spacious with more than enough room for the 28 of us even when we all dashed inside Lavender during a thunderstorm. The outdoor space, toys, games, and household equipment were used to the max by everyone from 6 months to 91.5 years. The access for wheelchair and the less mobile was superb. The children "big " and small all went home exhausted from so much fun. What a happy weekend we had and we all want to come again.

Thank you. Penny Godwin x

Dear Rachael, we had such a fabulous stay in your cottages and wanted to say a big thank you. We were all very impressed by all the little extras you provided such as the biscuits, dish washer tablets, washing up liquid and soaps in the sinks! it is easy for us to forget those things and lots of places don't bother with them so it made a big difference to us. Our kids were quite amazed (and very pleased) with all the things provided for them, especially the large go kart and the room full of toys. Your cottages felt quite luxurious and what with the weather too, we had an amazing time. Thank you again for your help with the groceries too, we look forward to another visit.

Dear all,

The two cottages (foxglove and daisy) my family occupied were just wonderful. From the personal touches of flowers, milk and cookies to the beautiful d├ęcor and views. The cottages had everything you could want and more. We loved every minute of it and were sad to leave.

From families with young children to couples to groups of friends, all would enjoy Oulton House Farm, just don't forget your camera!

Many thanks

Hello there,

Can I just say thank you for the most wonderful weekend for our family reunion. The facilities were great! The scooters, go-carts, trampoline, the table tennis, the toys etc were very much appreciated to keep the children busy. Foxglove cottage really was a home from home, in fact the kitchen was stocked better than my own! My Dad and his wife were very happy in Daisy too.

You have obviously put a lot of thought and effort into accommodating families of all different ages and I will not hesitate to recommend your venue to family and friends.

Thank you once again

Karen Dean

Hi Rachael,

BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT, that's the only way to describe our stay with you! But I would also like to say an extra big thank you from myself and all my family for an absolutely fantastic stay at Oulton House Farm, your attention to detail is amazing. We have been going away en mass (8Adults and 5 Children) for the last 5 years and our stay at Oulton House Farm has certainly been the best so far, my 9 year old Grandson says it's been the best holiday EVER! The Grandchildren had a whale of a time with all the facilities on offer and it meant the adults could relax a little in the knowledge that they were safe and having fun. Please also say a big thank you to Sally, who went out of her way to involve all the little ones in some aspect of helping her to feed the animals, she was lovely and so informative. You can be assured that I will be singing your praises far and wide amongst other family and friends!!

Hi Rachael,

We have just returned from a new Year break at the cottages, where we had a fantastic time. There were 16 of us, split across Cornflower, Bluebell and Cowslip and we couldn't get over how luxurious and spacious the cottages are. The pictures really don't do the accommodation justice, everything was beautifully presenred, so well equipped and huge! Loads to do, desite the rain and all 16 of us comfortably got together in both of the larger cottages. Thanks again for helping to make this New Year our best yet - we can't wait to return!.

Yvette Cross December 2012

Hi Rachael,

I would like to say how much my family, friends and I enjoyed ourselves over the weekend. The accommodation was absolutely fantastic and so big - everyone was amazed. The little touches, flowers and chocolates were a fantastic touch. The children aged from 5 - 17 has a fantastic time - they were never bored as there was so much for them to do. I am so pleased that I found your cottages on the website and I would not hesitate in recommending them to other people.

Kind regards


Helen Skinner August 2012

Thank you for making our weekend one to remember. The quality of the accommodation far exceeded our expectations and we were amazed at how well equipped the cottages were. We were blown away with the beautiful and breathtaking location as well as the outdoor facilities. There are a few aching muscles amongst us from the non-stop tennis and volleyball marathons. Everyone joined in from 3 years up to 79 years old. The selection of toys for the children was immense and the ride on tractors were really enjoyed.

Kind regards


The Leathers August 2012

We make this our annual family reunion not just because of it's location but because of the quality of the accommodation and the warm welcome given by Rachael. Highly recommended

Dear Arthur, Barbara and Rachael

We have just returned from a Brilliant family get together, week long stay at Lavender cottage. I agree with everything that has been said previously, the photographs do not do the accommodation justice. Words cannot describe how clean, comfortable and luxurious the cottage is, yet it still retains that lovely 'homely' feel. There were 9 of us, which along with my husband and I included two OAP's.two 18 year olds, two 14 year olds and a 3 month old and we were all catered for with the outstanding facilities provided in the cottage, the outside activities including the games room and the farm itself. The central location is perfect for visiting the excellent surrounding counties and we are already arranging another visit very soon.

If you are thinking of staying here, don't wait too long before making a booking as dates will be snapped up very quickly!!

Paula Avery May 2012


I would like to say a big Thank you to you all for a wonderful weekend we had staying at your farm this weekend for our family get together. The children and adults had a wonderful time, the farm is lovely and the children enjoyed the play areas and helping to feed the lambs and see all the cows as some of them have never been that close to animals before. As for the adults, we enjoyed the piece and quiet. We are now trying to arrange another get together and are looking forwards to coming back again.

The accommodation was excellent, lots of room and well laid out. It not only felt like a break but also with some home comforts.

Many thanks once again

Lucy Ellard March 2012

I wanted to just send a quick email after me and my friends stayed in your 'Lavender Cottage' at the weekend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our break at your cottages and thought the accommodation itself was absolutely perfect! If I am being honest, the pictures on your website don't do the cottages justice. I was expecting it to be nice but not as nice as it was. We were all absolutely thrilled when we arrived and it was so clean, tidy and really comfortable.

The weather definitely helped too as it was a beautiful setting. We went for a long walk on the Saturday to Norbury Junction and then Gnosall.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your cottage and we have already said we will 100% be coming back, hopefully in September time.

Margaret & George Gault, Sally & Tony Chapman and Kath & Bob James August 2011

Dear Arthur and Barbara,

 I had to write on behalf of our party, who stayed in Lavender cottage from 24th August to 31st August, to say thank you so much for allowing us to stay on your beautiful farm.

The cottage was wonderful, spacious, well equipped, very clean and the flowers and fruit made us feel welcome when we arrived.

We had a great time travelling around the county and with your farm being very central it made visiting beauty spots very easy. We would recommend your facilities to family and friends.

Thank you again


Anne Roberts, July 2011

just a note of thanks for our recent stay in Cowslip Cottage which we enjoyed very much indeed. The cottage was perfect for us; my brother is a little disabled and can't cope with stairs so it was ideal being on one level, and we were very grateful for such a lovely welcome with the fresh flowers and fruit which you kindly provided. The view from the cottage was beautiful and it was a very tranquil spot, with good access to some interesting places in Staffordshire and Shropshire.

 Everything provided, linen, towels and kitchen equipment was excellent. Very many thanks.

Natalie and Timothy April 2011

I love your farm, I love everything about it, I even love how you work it, I want to live and work here. Thank you for letting me see all the things you do at this farm and letting me help you with it. It was amazing to go herding the cows with you and my friend Alice. I hope you will not forget me because I'm never ever going to forget you or your farm. I never want to leave this place and I hope I can come again very soon.

Christin Phelps Webb April 2011

Our extended family all stayed at Foxglove cottage for 2 weeks over the Easter Holiday, and the whole stay was perfect. There was more than enough room for all of us, the kitchen is huge and modern, and the living room easily fit us as well as our visiting friends and relatives. The farm was HEAVEN for our children. There are toys in the cottage and outside there is a trampoline, table tennis, badminton net, tennis court, a bike and tractors to ride and a great swing in the meadow. Also there is a games room with fuzbol table and a snooker table in addition to more toys. Loads of space for running, playing and cricket games. Best of all, though, was being on the farm itself. Arthur and Sally were so kind and generous in taking time out of their busy schedule running the farm to let the kids see the animals and answer their questions about life on the farm. And Rachael was always there if we needed anything, from extra towels to hints using the wifi to getting us a new toilet seat! We hope we will be able to stay at Oulton Farm again the next time we go to England--I can't imagine any other place working out so perfectly.

Janice Wells March 2011

I just wanted to say thank you for our fabulous weekend in Foxglove and Lavender. We all thoroughly enjoyed the properties and the whole weekend. Oulton Farm is the perfect place for family get togethers and I only wish we had had a week.

Many Thanks

Antonia Fraser, February 2011

"My cousin visited from Bari, Italy and had a lovely stay in Snowdrop Cottage. Their first time in England and they enjoyed the countryside immensely."

Joanne Roocroft, November 2010

"Over half term we came to stay at Foxglove Cottage for 3 nights. I would like to say how enjoyable our stay was and how fantastic we thought the cottage and grounds were. We will definitely be trying to return for another holiday in the future."

Margaret Whiteoak, October 2010

"We have just returned from a lovely Ruby Wedding celebration for my Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law at your farm cottages with all the family this weekend. It was super and we were all very impressed with both cottages, Bluebell and Cornflower, they were beautifully furnished and very well equipped. In fact we would like to book next year for my 60th Birthday. Looking forward to coming again next year!"

Maggie, May 2010

"Thank you very much for this weekend - the cottages and surroundings were perfect. The kids were in their element feeding the lambs and playing on the tractors. We all had a great time. I am sure that we will all be back and will certainly recommend Oulton House Farm to friends."

Claire, August 2010

"I wanted to write and say how much we enjoyed our stay with you at Oulton Farm last week.

"Our two year old spent hours looking out of the windows at the animals, tractors and general beauty that surround us! The cottage was extremely spacious, very comfortable, relaxing and so clean. We hope to come again soon.

"Thank you for your friendly welcome and for such a fantastic fun holiday."

Samantha and Sue Marshall, March 2010

"I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for helping accommodate my family and myself during our stay. Allowing my parents to leave their car near the doorway to the cottage (Foxglove) was very kind of you. It helped alot with my dad being disabled and not having to rush to get him out on Sunday was wonderful. I shall certainly recommend your cottages to others. We had an absolutely lovely time and can't wait to book again."

Kate Livermore and family, April 2010

"We would just like to say how much we've enjoyed our stay at Cowslip Cottage. It's been very comfortable and we've had everything we've needed. The tennis court has been great - we've played most days. Thank you for a great stay."

Judith, Paul, George and Sam Clark, Joan and John Smedley, February 2010

"Just a note to say thank you for our very relaxing week away, we thoroughly enjoyed staying at Oulton House Farm. The cottage was just perfect especially with my parents who are both elderly and somewhat disabled. We hope you have a very successful year with the business and we look forward to staying with you again in the future."

Natasha and Sam Richardson, December 2009

"Happy New Year! Thank you so much for the use of Bluebell and Foxglove over the New Year, we had a fantastic time! The houses were so comfortable, clean and better than we could have imagined! Everyone was so happy and singing there praises! There was plenty of hot water, the houses were warm and comfortable. We had everything we wanted!

"We had a lovely walk to the local pub, due to your helpful directions and the trampoline got used, even in the freezing temperature! We have already talked about coming again next year! Thank you."

Carol, George and Elizabeth, August 2009

"Thank you for a lovely stay in Cowslip Cottage. We have had a really good holiday and much of our enjoyment has been because we have had such a wonderful base to return to everyday. Highlihgts would include Norbury Junction, Stoke on Trent, (Burslem) Stafford and, of course, Trentham Gardens.

"The beautiful view from the cottage will be something we will always remember. Thank you again for the lovely cottage and for providing all the added extra's for disabled people."

Barry, Anne and family, July 2009
