I've stayed at this B&B on 4 different occasions. My cousin and I wanted to learn about the culture since our ancestors were from England. We did not want to stay in a commercial hotel, but wanted the experience of a regular neighborhood and family experience.
That's is exactly what we got at Fox Hill. We were welcomed like old friends. Both Tim and Sue were completely open with us, there is nothing they don't know about visiting London. We weren't treated like paying customers, but more like friends and both Sue and Tim were very helpful and patient with us asking them dozens of questions about English culture, food, traditions, etc.
If you are looking to experience how regular people live in England I would highly recommend Fox HiIl. I also enjoyed it because it is not a "cookie cutter" type of hotel that you can go to anytime that you are in a hurry and just need a place to sleep. It was an enjoyable experience, interesting art and textiles, beautiful garden, the family, the animals and excellent conversation.
