My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Lavender Cottage in early May. We were in England to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary . We spent the first year of our marriage in Oxford where my husband was engaged in postdoctoral research. That was a wonderful year for us and we loved Oxford and the Cotswolds so we decided... More

A very attractive B+B just outside Oxford. OK, you don't get the Oxford buzz but you don't get the terrible city driving/parking problems, either. Kidlington looks like a bit of a dormitory place but the nice part of this suburb is around Lavender Cottage, a very charming building, perfectly run by the owners, Peter and Rosemary. Very comfortable beds and... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Lavender Cottage in September. What an absolute find. We stayed in the twin room, the beds were so comfortable, the décor just beautiful, the bathroom as everywhere else was spotless. The breakfast yummy, loved the different fresh fruit every morning. The bus stopped just round the corner to go into Oxford. There are 3... More

This is the first time we have stayed here and from the moment we stepped through the front door we were made to feel at home, Rosemary and Peter made us so welcome that we felt that they were old friends. There home is special, we stayed in... More

We had a fantastic weekend very much enhanced by our stay at Lavender Cottage. The B&B is situated in a quiet position but near to an excellent bus service that goes to the city centre. For the more energetic, the Oxford canel is also close to hand giving the opportunity to ride right into the centre too. It is ideally... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. Thoughtful hosts who catered for a wheat flour allergy and suggested suitable places to eat too. Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit cereals, yoghurt and a choice of cooked breakfast with home made bread. The room was stylish and comfortable with crisp comfortable bedding and the ensuite bathroom was beautifully appointed. We stayed... More

I'd been dwelling in Lavender cottage for 15days and believe me this is a 5star B&B at the cheapest price of the Oxford area! They clean everything everyday very very very meticulously, every day I'd fresh flower in the room, snacks, water, fresh milk, te', everything You need. The breakfast was amazing, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, eggs, beans, toast, mushroom,... More

A beautiful place to stay. The attention to detail is second to none; a well stocked refreshment tray in our bedroom and Molton Brown toiletries in the en suite bathroom. There were fresh flowers from the garden in our rooms and in the dining room. It all just made me smile! My husband and I had the double room which... More
