Farley Lodge has lots of space and a very comfortable furniture. Lovely kitchen for breakfasts. Very warm and cosy. Brilliant footrest. Amazing views. We really liked being so remote and on a working small holding. Locals were very friendly as was the owner!

We particularly liked the tranquillity, privacy, and beautiful views. The property has a spacious deck, which was lovely, if the sun would shine.

Myself and my husband could not asked for a beautiful place to stay. Farley Lodge was stunning, so spacious with a large main bedroom with en-suite walk in shower. We particularly liked the huge country kitchen looking out over the country fields in the morning was eye catching.

This Lodge was absolutely lovely. It was set in unspoilt woodland; we saw deer and lots of interesting bird life. There was a log burner and a fabulous large kitchen, and both bathrooms were very modern and spotless. Everything we needed was there.

The lodge was beautiful, well decorated and spacious. It made you feel at home as soon as you walked in. The location with the woods and stables around made it a very relaxing stay.

We had the most wonderful week complete with fantastic weather! The house is beautifully presented and a perfect setting and we felt immediately at home. The woodburning stove is very effective too. The beds are very comfortable and the shower fantastic! We would definitely return. The owner is also delightful, very friendly and helpful. Absolutely perfect!!

Beautiful cottage in a lovely setting. We particularly loved the views from the cottage across the fields and not over looked. The owners were really friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend the cottage.

We had a wonderful week at Farley Lodge. The lodge was fantastic and our 2 young children wanted to 'stay forever' (as did we!). All in all, the stay was wonderful and we can't wait for another holiday at Farley Lodge.

We stayed here during the Great Blizzard of 2018 - such an amazing location to see the snow come in from. If anything, the pictures undersell it. The house is perfectly appointed - everything you need, with some lovely touches to make the stay a little bit special. Most importantly the heating and hot water worked flawlessly for our family - two Grandparents, two kids and my wife and I. We had the log burner on for a couple of nights just for atmosphere really, as the house was plenty warm enough. The owners being just next door is absolutely brilliant - they let the kids feed the newborn lambs, and when we got stuck in the snow on our way home, they organised a rescue effort and towed us all the way to the main road. Many thanks for that, if you're reading! Can't recommend this place enough, we hope to stay there again soon.

Farley Lodge is 5* accommodation. The facilities are top notch. The views are beautiful. We loved going for walks in Bentley Woods and surrounding villages. Lots of lovely pubs near by. So relaxing and quiet the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. Will definitely be back soon.

Everything you could possibly want in a holiday rental. Comfortable well maintained property. Well equipped. Large garden that included a boules pitch. Central heating supplemented with a log burner in the lounge. Laundry room with a tumble drier if required. Lots of birdlife in the garden - bring some seed. Sheep in the field next door and deer to be seen in the woods across the track. Easy to get to from the main road and only a few miles from Salisbury

Exactly what other reviewers have said! A lovely lodge, very spacious, with views over open countryside. Very tranquil. We stayed here as a family of five (one child) - our grand-daughter loved watching the horses in the field outside, and deer-spotting in the woods opposite. Yes, there is a rutted track for half a mile up to the farm and lodge (through Bentley Woods), but in normal cars we were okay, driving carefully round the potholes. The drive adds 5mins to any journey time, but worth it for the secluded location. There is a very good village shop in the next village (Winterslow), which sells everything including fresh meat and veg. The roads around there are very narrow. There are various small villages with village pubs where you can eat. Salisbury is a 15min drive away, but we didn't go there as there is bad traffic congestion due to roadworks. It's easy to go south, picking up the A36 to the New Forest, Ringwood and the South Coast. We made a day trip to the Isle of Wight using the Lymington ferry. If you have kids, the New Forest Wildlife Park is a must! And of course, driving round the New Forest, seeing the ponies. At the lodge, you make your own entertainment, walking in the woods, relaxing or playing games. But there are plenty of places within reach for days out. I only switched the TV on once, and that was to check the weather forecast! Recommended for a relaxing rural holiday.

What a gorgeous place to spend a weeks holiday! The house was absolutely stunning with every thing you could wish for making it a home from home. Seeing all the wildlife so close up and the peace and quiet of the woodlands was surreal! I cannot recommend this house enough! The owner was absolutely lovely and the home made cakes to die for! Would definitely visit again! Salisbury is a lovely city to visit and it's nearby which is great! Thank you for a lovely week :)

It was home away from home, I would like to return there again. The mattress must have been new and the linen was better than in a hotel. The house was just perfect.
