We’ve hardly been here when Mum was already sorry she did not opt to stay longer …
Given the House rules, no photography in the public areas – just in case you catch one of the “celebs” – we can’t show you the lovely barns, the shops and restaurants. So all we can show is our lovely little cabin which is just a tad bigger than our Christmas hideaway.
Arriving at Charlbury by train, we were picked up by a taxi and drove through the quaint village and the English countryside till we arrived at the Farm House where we were dropped off by the arrival area. We were then driven, along with others checking in to the Reception which means there wasn’t a parking lot in sight where we stayed.
Just outside, pastures green for relief
Mum went off to dinner – where dogs were not allowed …
When Mum came back, she took me out for our moonlight walk along the lit paved paths, as in you don’t have to get all muddy!
May’s comment: Our last two getaways have been on farms and in rustic cabins. Though this one is “luxuriously” larger than our American log cabin over Christmas – both provided a place of refuge.
Soho Farmhouse are for members and their limited guests. My lovely godson (thank goodness I have been a good godmother!) invited me to a getaway. Although dogs are allowed in certain allocated cabins, I wasn’t sure about the House Rules. I didn’t want to risk bringing two dogs and it became an issue. And knowing that Darcy is a better traveller, I left George in good hands (though he protested).
The only public space where dogs are allowed is in the Mill Bar – where we waited before check-in. Food can be served there. In the summer when there is outside seating, one can dine with their dogs but otherwise, the two restaurants – the Main Bar and Pen Yen (Japanese cuisine) do not allow dogs inside. You can leave your dogs tied up in the waiting area at the Main Bar. Given the exclusivity of the place, you need not worry about them being taken. It’s a matter of whether they’re comfortable there. They did offer to keep Darcy in the office while we have lunch so we’ll trial that.
But we are looking forward to lunch with Edgar, who made this possible.
