We recently spent a fantastic week in the Cotswolds and a lot of the credit goes to our accommodations at the Foxhill B&B and our hostess Sue Guyatt. We stayed in the “Ostlers” room and it was very cozy, comfortable and clean, with thoughtful touches such as a fresh thermos of milk every day for our tea. Our mornings started with a big delicious breakfast that provided fuel for our hikes through the countryside or for town hopping by car. The breakfast room is a glass conservatory that overlooks a beautiful garden and beyond that, a horse field and stable. Our transport was a car, but guests arriving on the “four-legged” kind can stable their horses here too.
This charming B&B is located slightly away from the very touristy parts of the Cotswolds, while still being close enough for quick and easy access to the many towns and villages. Sue provided many good suggestions for places to visit and routes for day hikes such that we got a good appreciation of the beautiful Cotswolds region. Her personality is such that we were completely at ease with her from the moment we met. She made a lot of effort to ensure that we had everything we needed and provided it when necessary, including suntan lotion and packaging material / tape for our purchases. In fact, Sue even helped us wrap our purchases after sharing in our delight of our “lucky finds”.
We have stayed at a number of B&B’s during our travels over the years and have enjoyed most of them. However, the whole package at Foxhill, from the yummy breakfasts, quaint country style rooms and serene location, definitely puts it in the top 5 of our list. More importantly in our minds is the excellent service and generous interaction we received during our stay. Thus, we rank Foxhill among our top 2 B&B experiences. Don’t miss out on this little gem in the Cotswolds!
