Have had the pleasure of staying with David and Judy a few times now, and they are fantastic hosts. The White House B&B is like home away from home and our first choice every time my family visits Oxfordshire and its surrounds.

The White House is an excellent place to enjoy your holidays, the very friendly owners Judy and David do not leave any wishes unattended. After a trip to Oxford (30 Min by bus) or London (90 min) relax in the beautiful garden and jump into the pool. Abingdon village - in walking distance - is very pretty and offers a... More

We recently stayed here for 4 nights and loved every minute. We were lucky enough to have the loft bedroom, and after the challenge of getting your large suitcases up the spiral stair case, we revelled in our private space. The welcome of the hosts and the fantastic breakfasts toped it off. Hope we get the chance to go back... More

My boyfriend and i stayed there two weeks ago and we had a lovely time. The house is absolutely gorgeous and is nice and peaceful. I cant believe how cheap it is too, and includes breakfast! This place is a great find and i'll happily go there again. Our room was wonderfully prepared and we didnt lack for anything. I'd... More

My daughter and I stayed the White House on the Saturday prior to the air and country show at Abingdon. Judy and David were very welcoming, and we both really enjoyed our stay which unfortunately was for only one evening. We both had a restful night and slept soundly in our comfortable beds. Breakfast was delicious, with plenty of variety.... More

A beautiful, charming place to stay, a lovely couple who run it, full of character, spotlessly clean, plenty of hot water, comfortable bed and lovely full English breakfast. Was made to feel extremely welcome, I didn't want to leave.

We have used Judy and David's great place now for several visits over a several years and they have always been brilliant - the only problem has occasionally been getting a booking because they are (rightly) so popular! Warm welcome, great breakfasts, comfortable rooms and plenty of local knowledge / advice. Wi-fi helps for homework, too. Very highly recommended indeed.

We booked a double en suite room at The White House for a short weekend break. Even a four hours delay due to a car breakdown on arrival wasn't a problem. Judy welcomed us really friendly and warmhearted and showed us around their beautiful house. The room was absolutely lovely, georgous decoration, the stressfree and quiet retreat we were looking...

We booked three rooms at The White House for family members for our Daughter’s wedding. David and Judy were most welcoming and we had unlimited access to our rooms and the gardens. It was wonderful. We sat in the garden making wedding decorations – in other places we would have been confined to our rooms. Breakfast was when we wanted... More

Just one night here while visiting Oxford. Lovely house in a quiet area. Reasonable rate for double room (with 2 shared bathrooms), which was large and comfortable. Hosts very obliging. Fresh milk for tea very much appreciated, though a mini fridge or small flask would be good, as it didn't last the night (but encouraged to refill from kitchen, which... More
