We were looking for a comfortable, quality B&B with nearby pub not far from the M40 that we could stay in on route south. Shakespeare's View fitted the bill wonderfully. Easy to get to & find, the house is on a quiet road just 15 minutes walk from the village of Snitterfield. We had a very warm welcome from the owner, quickly followed by tea and homemade cakes in the large back room overlooking the garden, orchards and distant countryside.
Guests have their own entrance and off-road parking, but those less sure of foot should be careful on the rather uneven steps and pathway.
Our room was a very comfortable and nicely decorated double, again with a lovely view. The other (ensuite) room appears to face the other way. The description on Laterooms hadn't indicated that the (large and well equipped) bathroom wasn't ensuite, but it wasn't really a problem, although some guests might find the trip across the landing past the neighbouring bedroom door a bit daunting. The owner has thoughtfully provided gowns to spare any blushes!
We had a pleasant meal at the pub, which has been recently refurbished with more of a wine bar feel than village local.
Breakfast in the morning in the garden room was pretty good, as expected - the wonderful freshly-squeezed juice more than making up for the rather small bits of sausage offered!
Thanks again for a lovely stay.
