“An absolutely recommendable B&B, run to a really enjoyable yet professional standard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2010

We really enjoyed our stay and would be confident in recommending this really well presented cottage B&B, to anyone.

We found the hosts both friendly and professional. The sort of people, that you know that anyone would feel welcome there.

The room, the food and the service was really really good.

We stayed for two nights, to attend a wedding in Oxford. The accommodation exceeded our expectations, the room was beautifully furnished, all linens, towels etc of an exceptional standard, as were the luxury range of complimentary toiletries.
Rosemary and Peter were welcoming without being intrusive. They suggested various places to dine and arranged all our transport through a local taxi firm, as we did not wish to use our car.
The breakfast selection was excellent, fresh fruit; various cereals and the cooked breakfast could not be faulted.
The property deserves the reviews it has received. We can highly recommend it and we very much hope to stay there again.

Thank you

Tom and Bernadette.

Stayed here recently for 3 days while touring the area. Easy to find but park at the front door. Twin room was beautifully furnished complete with TV, tea/coffee making facilities, magazines and spacious storage units. As we were the only guests staying we had use of 5star bathroom located next to bedroom. Bathroom equipped with fine toiletries and luxurious towels as well as having excellent shower and sunken bath. Breakfast were 6 star - fresh fruit picked from the garden, cereals, cafetiere of coffee and cooked breakfast when ordered. Excellent location for touring area and bus to Oxford literally around the corner.
Wonderful hosts - extremely helpful when seeking directions on local places of worship..

Peter and Rosemary have a wonderful home, what a joy to be welcomed into it for a night! Converted from 2 old cottages into one superior dwelling, Rosemary certainly has a good sense of style and colour to give a relaxing feel to the whole property.

After a tiring day at work and a couple of hours driving we were shown into a lovely bedroom, a good sized room with 3 windows overlooking their well groomed gardens. Peter showed us around the room which has a quality bedroom suite and 2 comfortable easy chairs. The bed was king size and luxuriously soft and comfortable. Magazines and local information were good to find and the beverage tray was elegantly arranged and easy to use. There's a very large fitted wardrobe and extra blankets were available. The ensuite was superb with a large walk in shower and plenty of space for toiletries. The towels provided were top quality.

Peter helped us with finding the opening times of the Ashmolean Museum. (We left our laptop at home but I understand wifi is provided free of charge). He also suggested local places to eat. We decided on "Ovisher", an indian restaurant less than 10 minutes walk away, which proved to be one of the best we have eaten in.

Breakfast was served in the dining area which also serves as the entrance lobby which works well. We were the only guests that morning and as it was my birthday I was delighted to sit back and receive the attentive but not intrusive service offered by Rosemary. Breakfast was simply excellent and as I commented to our hosts, far better than that offered at a 5 star hotel I had stayed in the week before!

This is a new venture for the owners, if they maintain these high standards then it shall certainly become known as one of THE places to stay in Kidlington. We chose Kidlington for its proximity to Blenheim Palace and Oxford. For the price we paid Lavender Cottage was very good value, and I highly recommend it.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

Lovely converted cottage into B & B with two bedrooms - one double and one twin. We (my sister and I) took our parents there for their 50th wedding anniversary present. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated with lovely bathrooms. Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of choice. We had the place to ourselves as they only cater for four guests at one time. Access to Oxford was easy - a bus from the end of the road (£2.00 single fare) and took about 15 minutes. The cottage is on the edge of old Kidlington - like time has stood still with quaint cottages and a church. We had a lovely time and all thanks to our hosts at Lavender Cottage. Would definitely go back.

Beautiful cottage in a peaceful location but only a 10 min bus ride into Oxford. The rooms are tasefully decorated and the bathrooms are gorgeous. The owners are lovely people who have really put an effort into the detail ( magazines and books in bedrooms, scented tissues, quality towels etc) and do their best to ensure the comfort of their guests.
Would most definitely recommend Lavender cottage to anyone who appreciates quality and wants to stay on the edge of Oxford.

The accommodation offered by Mr & Mrs Wenham at Lavender Cottage is of the highest quality, all that one could wish for. The cottage is so attractive, as is the room + the ensuite. It is evident much care and attention has gone into providing a very comfortable stay. On both mornings breakfast was excellent, it was a very nice touch to provide a Sunday paper, highly recommended
