Our Stay at High Lodge Farm, Upper Milton


High Lodge Farm is a stunning B&B in Upper Milton, not far from the gorgeous Cotswold town of Burford. I stumbled across it by chance when I was googling where to stay for our first anniversary trip. I was immediately taken with it's picturesque setting, and perfectly styled rooms.

There was ample parking when we arrived, and the building itself is insanely impressive, surrounded by country lanes and fields, the ultimate retreat.

We headed to the huge main door, where we were warmly greeted by Kirsten, her little boy and Maggie their friendly dog. We immediately felt at home.

We pottered up to our room, trying not to mark the stunning white carpet as we went! When we arrived at our room, number 3. The whole family showed us in, Kirsten even offered to make us tea/coffee though there was already facilities in our room, which was incredibly thoughtful.


After a little chat and a tour of our room, we were given our keys and left to settle in. I had a little mooch round, taking in all the details and having a read through the information folder, before we decided to have a little nap! I can confirm that the bed is luxuriously comfortable, and I could have happily stayed there all night if we hadn't already made dinner plans!


After venturing out into Burford for dinner, we arrived back around 10:30, hopped straight into bed and fell asleep. I was awoken in the middle of the night to an owl hooting happily, which I have to say was quite exciting! I quickly fell back to sleep, waking my husband up first to alert him of the owl, aren't I a thoughtful wife...

My favourite thing about the room was drawing back the curtains in the morning and getting to appreciate the stunning view. The sun peeped through the trees, instantly brightening the day.



The room itself is even more gorgeous in daylight, with crisp white bedding, perfect cream carpets and luxury accessories. We had a fully stocked tea tray, with hot chocolate and Kit Kats! The bed was big and fluffy, with amazingly plump pillows that I must now get for our own bed. I could not recommend it more.


We had a little lie in and headed down for breakfast around 9am. The breakfast room was a lovely bright space, with light pink walls and pale wooden shutters. It was delicately decorated with beautiful furnishings, which really set a tranquil tone to the room.




We had a choice of breakfast, I went for a slightly lighter option of crossaints, which came out deliciously warm with homemade jam. Stephen had the 'farmhouse breakfast' with beans, scrambled egg, bacon and sausages, which he really enjoyed. We accompanied breakfast with plenty of coffee and orange juice.




We finished our breakfast and headed back up to the room for a final potter around before collecting our bag and heading off home.



If you are looking for a new years retreat, I would definitely recommend High Lodge Farm. It's in a peaceful countryside surrounding, yet is a short drive to some stunning Cotswold towns and villages.
