We stayed at the Merryfield B&B for 4 nights this past fall. The hosts, John and Tina, are warm and welcoming, providing a comforting reception after an overnight flight and long day of sight seeing.
We chose the B&B as it was centrally located to Oxford, Warwick and the Cotswolds, but was still rural in a small pituresque stone town of about 20 houses. There's a pub about a 10 minute walk away with typical tasty food in large portions and exceptionally good veg on the side.
The location is secluded and quiet. As our room faced the garden we did not hear a peap during the night and slept with the windows open. I'm a light sleeper so it's crucial for me to find a quiet place if i'm to enjoy the waking part of my holiday.
The house is set back from the small street that loops through the town, so there is only a small bit of traffic from the locals and no through traffic. Even at that we never heard a single car as the house is a bit off the street with the garage backing the street.
There are only 2 rooms each with private bathrooms. Ours was upstairs with a nice view of the backyard which we've posted along with other photos. The bathroom was just outside the door but as there are no other bedrooms upstairs it was quite private. The room was large with plenty of room to lay out our stuff and move around. There was wifi and tea, coffee and cocoa along with fresh milk for a nightly cup of whatever which we looked forward to each day. The bed was very comfortable, not too firm and not too soft.
Breakfast was delicious with a choice of cereals, oatmeal or full english with lightly herbed mushrooms, tomato, egg (we chose poached as it was so light and tastey), sausage and bacon. There was also a selection of home-made jams from the fruit in the backyard. The tea was top quality (we could tell the difference when we went to london later in the week and had the cheap stuff).
John and Tina helped us with information about what to do and how to do it including suggesting things we hadn't considered. I can not think of any way to improve what I can only describe is a perfect quintessential cotswold bed and breakfast.
