I have stayed in a lot of places over the last 20 years working as a contractor around the UK and though not usually bothered about leaving reviews I have to say I had the best experience at this B&B over the weekend. The room was great with plenty of space, the owners made me feel very much at home...

My colleague and I were at a training seminar locally and I was so lucky to find The White House. A charming venue, comfortable and uber clean rooms, stunning gardens, an outdoor pool and friendly hosts. After a good night's sleep - bacon and scrambled eggs to fortify the next day's training - can't fault it! We return for more...

We booked on the off-chance that we would be able to get a room for the Abingdon Air & Country Show, primarily because the location was close to both Abingdon Town and the Airfield, where the show was being held. We had no prior knowledge of this B&B. We were greeted by David who immediately made us feel welcome with...

We came to stay at this b&b whilst we were in the area. The b&b is lovely, the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. At 500 year old it has a quirkiness and charm all of its own, with a beautiful garden. We were made to feel so welcome by the owners. I would definitely stay again...

The Owners do not like to get up in the morning to serve breakfast! I have just stayed in this B and B for the past 5 days. They could not get up to provide breakfast. They could provide breakfast at 0745 but no earlier. The Bread left out was out of date and this did not seem to bother...

This is an excellent B&B. Lovely quirky old house. Spotlessly clean. Very welcoming. I would definitely stay again. Easy to find. Very close to where I needed to be (visiting family). Loved the sash windows and furnishing. Room very large and comfy. Not en suite but 2 large bathrooms close by. Coffee and tea in the room a nice touch...

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...

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...

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!
