We couldn't fault this delighful b&b in a quiet village amidst lovely countryside. The house is picturebook and beautifully furnished with personal treasures. Hosts Judith and John went out of their way to make our stay a pleasure. Our double room, overlooking the stunning garden, was spacious and extremely comfortable, with every detail taken care of. Breakfast was delicious and...

I saw the picture of the garden in a Bed and Breakfast review and the guarantee of a thatched cottage. It sold me and we stayed. Staff - Overall, I felt like I was walking on egg shells with our hostess. After leaving, my mother said "British really don't like Americans, do they?" My Dad was needing to use internet,...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gowers Close. A lovely house with loads of character and a beautiful garden. The bedroom was really comfortable. David and Judith were very welcoming and even gave gardening tips. Altogether we thoroughly recommend this as one of the best B&Bs we have stayed at.

We stayed at Gower's Close in April 2007 and weren't disappointed by the lovely building. It is a typical thatched cottage just as you'd wish to stay in when visiting the Cotswolds.

Large thatched b&b in a village west of banbury. Beautiful garden. Judith and John are good hosts and you will love Daisy the bearded collie. We were greeted with a welcome cup of tea and biscuits on arrival. There is a pub in the village which is supposed to be good but was closed on Monday when we visited. Cooked...

This lovely cottage, situated in a small hamlet near Banbury in the Cotswolds, gives you a real country, thatched experience. The room was huge with windows opening onto the incredible garden. The ensuite bath and an enormous deep bathtub. The garden is completely magical and the owners, Judith and John, warm, lovely and very helpful. The delicious breakfast was cooked...
