“Fabulous B&B with a very welcoming host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2006

My husband and I have just returned from a truly restful stay at this wonderful B&B. The owner, Christine Blenntoft, made us feel really welcome with delicious cake on arrival and a scrumptious breakfast of blueberry pancakes and home picked wild strawberries.

The house itself is simply stunning with beautiful antiques and pictures. Our bedroom was massive with a very comfortable bed, and beautifully decorated. There are lovely touches in the room, like homemade shortcake, fluffy white bathrobes and fresh milk for your tea and coffee.

The house has two inter-connected gardens and my husband really enjoyed a short snooze in one of the hammocks in the garden with a swimming pool.

The village of Deddington has great places to eat and is very pretty. A lovely restful place to visit with a very welcoming host.

I stayed here with my wife and parents-in-law who are Swedish. They adored the place, as did I. This is a quintessentially English house in a quintessentially English village. The house itself is two cottages knocked together earlier last century, giving it a sense of space and light. The interior was designed by the owner's daughter, and is blissfully tasteful (Farrow and Ball colours etc). Outside are three interconnected gardens beautifully laid out (the last has an outside swimming pool).

The owner, Christine Blenntoft is English though, as her name suggests, married to a Swede, which made our visit even more delightful for my parents-in-law. Christine is extremelly welcoming (lemon yoghurt cake and tea on arrival), helpful and cooked a magnificent breakfast with local organic produce.

Deddington is a pretty village with a number of good pubs and restaurants. It is also close enough to Oxford and other sites (I strongly recommend Rousham Hall with its wonderful William Kent gardens) to make it practical for day trips by car.

The price on our visit was £70 per room, which we thought excellent value. The rooms themselves are beautifully furnished and comfortable.
