Harrington House
Reviewed 1 November 2016

Harrington House is one of 19 houses managed by HF tours in Britain. It is a lovely old house, the rooms basic but comfortable, the staff very accommodating and the meals absolutely fabulous. In addition to our group of 17 Canadians, there were walkers from Britain and other parts of the world which made for lively discussions and conversations during the walks, before and after mealtimes. One can choose from easy, medium and harder walks and the guides (volunteers) are superb.
The Cotswolds countryside is beautiful, great scenery and houses - 'old England' at its best.

Room Tip: We were in an attic - quiet, but had to run the water for quite some time before it was hot. Did ha...

Staff friendly and welcoming. Food very good although vegetarian options could be better. Room very nice with a lovely shower en-suite. I was on a guided walking holiday and the walks in the area are varied and enjoyable and not too arduous.

We stayed in June for an Arts & Crafts tour of the area. Our room was large, comfortable & on the first floor with a view over the House gardens; it was quiet. The food was good and plenty of it. The packed lunches were a novel idea as we had not had an HF holiday before. Jane, our leader and guide, ensured we had as much info as we needed, and provided excellent talks. She showed us places that the "normal" tourist would not normally see. The house staff were efficient, and aimed to please. The other guests were very convivial. We will certainly do another HF holiday, as HF have several houses all over the UK, and also use hotels overseas.

Room Tip: Good views from rear rooms

Stayed for 4 nights as part of HF walking group. Very comfortable room in Windrush Cottage annex. Creaky floors but that added to the charm. The staff and service were excellent. So friendly, helpful and charming. Clean and tidy room and shared areas. Food was good. Sensible portions, tasty, well presented. Lovely lady at the little bar needs a special mention. Tranquil setting. Sorry to leave and hope to return.

Room Tip: Ground floor room in Windrush annex is good

Harrington House is run by HFHolidays providing walking and other holidays in the House. The rooms are of variable comfort and standard. Our room in the house was excellent - everything we needed with a great view over the gardens. The guided walks were well organized. Breakfasts and packed lunches offer great choices. The dinners were a little disappointing. Fish and mussels were not fresh; duck and steak pie were overlooked. They try to get 30ish dinners on the table within 10 minutes so I guess they have challenges. Guests eat together; not for everyone, but we enjoyed meeting people. An excellent holiday.
