Bad points. Door handle to bathroom coming off damp coming through wall, They said it's not damp. But when you have a cream wall with dark patches on it that looks like damp coming through. Not a good look. very soft mattresses Wifi hit and miss never worked in the room. Good points. Staff & breakfast

Great wee place to stop over and break up a journey, so very quiet, great price and cracking breakfast too. All the bits and pieces in the room to make you comfortable, saw some other guests with their dogs, so a bonus if you need a place that allows dogs!!! ;0)

We had a quick overnight here in the bed and breakfast rooms situated in a pleasant courtyard. It was pet friendly and the staff left towel and dog bowls in the room. The room had small table and chair and was clean. The bed was really low and soft so I did not have the best sleep but that is... More

These are a small buildings that serve as cabins/ cottages for B&B Look it's basic and ok but not what I'd normally stay in, it's basic. The breakfast was in a wooden cabin and average at best, I felt like I was staying in a 70 's holiday let The rooms were basic and not that comfortable. All this for... More

Stayed here for one night when we went to a food festival on oxford centre. Lovely place, the converted barns look lovely but the b and b rooms are little individual pods that go round a courtyard. Our price included a breakfast and we got a choice of cooked or continental. We checked in later around 7PM and rang the... More

Worked one side of the room but not the other. Breakfast served in a large shed, they call a dining room. Very cramped though we found the food very good. Room walls very thin,... More

Close to the centre of Abingdon down a very rough track passing the Rye Farm parking area. Reasonable size rooms with a good shower area. Decent shower, nice and clean. The room we were in had twin beds pushed together so were a good size but the top sheet was not big enough to tuck in properly so rumpled up... More

The breakfast was poor. The room was very cramped and the table and chairs were more akin to camping. It was more like a hut than a dining room.The food was basic, there wasn't much choice and the food was not very well cooked or presented. The woman on cooking duty was brusque and unhelpful. We got out as soon... More
