Our first business plan was written on a beer mat during a business trip to Chicago in 1999…and we’ve been working towards it ever since!

Living the Dream!

The opportunity to buy Woodcock Farm in 2017 was a dream come true and seeing it all coming together has been fantastically rewarding. Our vision is to create a relaxed and friendly holiday environment with really comfortable facilities surrounded by and connected to the outdoors.

Sustainability and Environment

Maintaining the wonderful hill fort and running the farm are integral to the experience, as we see it, and we aim to do so in as environmentally friendly way possible. One of our first decisions was to install a large array of PV solar panels on our barn roofs, which means we produce nearly all the electricity we use on the property. We believe in the highest standards of animal welfare and we want to do all we can to support rare and traditional breeds.

About us

With Caroline’s background in exhibition organising and Jason’s in the drinks trade, we had solid business experience, so to combine that with Jason’s passion for horses and all things outdoors, and Caroline’s love of a building and renovation project, we knew we had the basis to create an unforgettable venue which we are privileged to share with our guests.

We have three children, Jack and Lydia, and their partners, who are up in London building their own careers, and Rory who was born in 2003 and who has a burning passion for farming – so you will see him out and about tending the animals.

Things to do

The Hall at Woodcock Farm is everything you could possibly want in a holiday let. It's in a quiet location but close to many places to visit. We were spoilt for choice. We could not have asked for more and the small touches of milk in the fridge and the essential staples in the kitchen were much appreciated. We will certainly be making a return visit.

Such a lovely little spot. Quiet and peaceful but because it’s a small farm still great if you’ve got little ones. My 18-month-old loved watching Caroline feed some of the animals in the morning. Family owners could not have been more welcoming. Would highly recommend!

My partner and I stayed at Barn End over the Easter weekend, looking to get away from London after a few stressful weeks at work. Caroline and her family were so welcoming to us, we didn't want to leave after our trip! Barn End was absolutely beautiful and very stylishly decorated.

Dreamy stay at Timberdoodle. Felt so cut off and peaceful which a breathtaking view. We both had the best nights sleep in months!

Amazing dome, views & hospitality. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

We stayed one night in Caroline’s dome, on route to Heathrow from Cornwall. The Dome is set in beautiful surroundings with a nice view over to Wales and Bristol. It was clean inside and more than enough room for 3 of us, and very warm and cosy when we lit wood burner. You can buy logs from Caroline or bring your own. There is an outside (hot) shower and we made use of the gas bbq to cook our dinner. I would note to future guests to make sure you bring oil, salt and pepper for cooking as these things were not included in the dome. As we were travelling onward we did not bring linen or towels so chose to pay the £20 extra for Caroline to provide. Caroline was very friendly and helpful and was more than happy to show our little girl all the farm animals in the morning.

This place is top rate! the owners are absolutely lovely and the cottage is wonderfully clean with everything you need to have a lovely get away. The location is very convenient with the cotswolds way right on the doorstep, and some quaint villages. I will definitely be staying again and will be recommending to all of my friends.

Kelly and James Sept 2018

Thanks - had a great time. Bed was very comfortable & shower excellent. Loved looking round property and appreciated integration with you, Jason & Rory!

Caroline and Jason were amazing hosts, very friendly and were happy to assist with any requests we had. The apartment was perfect, finished to an extremely high standard, we couldn’t have picked a better place! The farm itself is lovey and our daughter loved feeding the chickens and looking for any eggs. Highly recommend getting the breakfast box that was offered. Delicious sausages, bread and fruit juice. Bring an ice box if you have one and take advantage of the amazing joints of meat you can buy too, looking forward to trying the pork shoulder we picked up! Thanks again to you both and hope to see you again! P.s. we asked our daughter to rate it out of 10...she gave you 100!

James Aug 2018

From the time we arrived until the second we left Caroline and Jason looked after us incredibly well. Timberdoodle is an unbelievable experience and getaway. Will definitely be back soon. Wine/Fires/stars/nature - PERFECT... Some great pubs close by as well.

Scott March 2019

Caroline's place is wonderful! The location is absolutely picture postcard perfect!! The nearby vistas are stunning. Lovely walks. Interesting history, beautiful villages. Tons of nearby conveniences... Waitrose, the picturesque high street of Chipping Sodbury closeby. 5 mins from the M4 yet so peaceful and serene.

We had a great break at Barn End. The apartment was very clean, stylish and the location was brilliant. It is only a couple of miles from a motorway junction and it is an excellent location for visiting Bath and Bristol, both about 30 minutes and less than an hour from Bristol Airport. We also went to Longleat for a day and this is just over an hour away. Also Avebury standing stones and the adjoining house are worth a visit. The southern cotswolds are also near the apartment with some lovely villages nearby such as Lacock and Castle Combe. We are delighted to recommend this accomodation and hopefully we will be back next year.
