Located in a quiet village. We had a comfortable stay in an en suite double room which had tea & coffee making facilities. Convenient location as it was close to Caswell House where we were attending a wedding. We chose the cooked breakfast was served at our chosen time. Very satisfied with our nights stay.

B&B under new ownership. A lovely, warm, cosy B&B in a lovely part of the country. So peaceful. Ray our host was very kind and accommodating. Our room was lovely and the bed comfortable. A very convenient location as we were going to a wedding at Caswell House. Good luck to the new owners Ray and Janet Simpson. Great B&B

We had a very lovely stay here and enjoyed exploring the area. Nothing was too much trouble for Wendy. Lovely touch to have a little bag with homemade cake on the tea tray in the bedroom. Everything beautifully clean and fresh and the breakfast itself was worth going for. Thank you - we will be back

Wendy (owner) was very welcoming with a warm, sunny personality. She went that extra mile in finding information for us. Her breakfast and service is excellent. The room we stayed was clean, tidy and very comfortable. Off road parking provided. The local pub/restaurant offers good veggie food at good prices. Ideal place to stay to explore the cotswolds and Oxford....
