Upon arrival Christine who runs the B&B part of the house(It is a private house) Made us very welcome, this after booking less than a week before. We were also assigned to the room with a walk in shower for my disabled wife. Christine very kindly took our luggage which meant I could help my wife up the short flight of stairs to our room, the old nursery. The bed was very large and comfy with crisp clean sheets, and the bathroom was very easy to use for my wife. In all a very Comfortable room.
The breakfast is taken in the oldest(12th century) part of the manor where you are served a traditional english or continental breakfast, what a Stylish setting.
It is set in large gardens and you are free to roam around at your convenience. Christine also seems to look after the gardens, keeping them very tidy.
To sum up if you are in Benson or it's surrounding area you will not go wrong with this "olde world" country manor.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 12th century manor countryside guest house situated in the village of Benson. It has recently been restored and refurbished and now offers very comfortable hotel-equivalent accommodation in a building with features which span 7 centuries, many of which have been hidden for over 250 years. Fyfield offers a friendly and personal service without being intrusive. We offer a good selection of organic and healthy options for breakfast but still maintain the traditional English breakfast. The 3 rooms are very individual in their character and furnishings but all have either king or super king beds, are large and bright and have all comforts. There are 3 local pubs within walking distance and several gourmet pubs and restaurants within a short drive. A regular bus goes directly to Oxford and Cholsey train station is within 3 miles. ... more less
