Spent two nights at Lavender Cottage last week. No amount of praise would be too much for this B & B - the hosts had thought of every possible thing to enhance the stays of guests. Our room was extremely clean, comfortable and fitted out to the highest standard. Our first floor room looked out over the delightful garden. The... More

We spent 3 nights at this peaceful relaxing B & B while visiting our son. The double room/ensuite were immaculate, spotlessly clean, well equipped and beautifully furnished and decorated. Peter and Rosemary were friendly welcoming hosts and provided a plentiful delicious breakfast. We will definitely stay there again when visiting our son.

This was a delightful B&B. We had a beautifully appointed room with careful attention to detail, such as fresh flowers. We overlooked a lovely garden. Peter and Rosemary took care to ensure we had a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Breakfasts provided plenty of options. Handy for Woodstock, Waterperry Gardens and Oxford. Can't wait to stay again.

I stayed here for 2 nights whilst in Oxford on business. The accommodation is spacious and spotless and of an extremely high standard throughout, and fabulous attention to detail (where do you get fresh old English tea roses from in late October?). It was the perfect place to relax after a long day, very quite yet handy for Oxford and... More

We stayed just one night at Lavender Cottage but it was a very lovely place to stay. It is a very old house and although it has many original features it was very comfortable. We had a lovely room with a king size bed, the en suite was huge and complete with everything we could need, it was a lovely... More

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
