Buscot Manor was the highlight of our visit to Great Britain. We wanted to get away to a quiet, country setting, and this elegant country manor house was perfect! We were greeted by Dee, who immediately served us tea and a selection of biscuits in the front garden. When we asked about the lovely grounds, Romney and her enchanting daughter showed us around the stables, gardens, and fields and introduced us to their horses, peacocks and chickens. They made us feel a part of the family and even invited us to a birthday celebration for a friend that evening. We wanted to experience what it was like to live in the English countryside, and we did at Buscot Manor! In the evening we walked to the Thames (nearby) and strolled one of the many walking trails in Great Britain. The next morning we were awakened to such heavenly fragrances wafting from the kitchen and sat down to the most AMAZING full English breakfast, complete with six types of freshly baked breads. The hospitality was beyond compare to any other place we stayed during our two-week holiday. This is an ancient property in the country (which was what we wanted and expected), so don't expect the accommodations to be uniform or common (Marriot style). The entire place is imbued with character and old-world country charm, and I couldn't recommend this place more highly.
