The location of this B&B makes it ideal for someone, like myself, working in the area with easy transport routes to Harwell and Oxford just an easy 10 minute walk away (to Didcot). Richard and Fiona were spectacular hosts, flexible and very accommodating to my needs. I stayed for a working week where I was very often arriving late in the evening and starting very early in the morning. One of my main concerns having this kind of routine in a B&B is the feeling that you're intruding or interrupting in someone else's house. After arriving, this feeling was very quickly forgotten, I was always made to feel welcome.
The breakfasts were top notch; I had the continental every day where Richard produced quite an impressive array of foods including freshly baked breads, croissants, jams, ham & cheese and, of course, plenty of coffee!
I stayed in one of the smaller rooms with a shared bathroom. The bed was comfortable and the room was well cleaned and tidied every day with lots of storage space for those planning on a longer stay. WiFi access was a great bonus and a decent speed too.
Not having a car meant I was slightly limited in my choices for evening meals/drinks but I certainly enjoyed aimlessly wondering around the area and stumbling on some of the suggestions made to me.
I'll be visiting the area reasonably frequently for work and I'm so glad I found this place as now I won't have to worry about where I'm staying on my next visit.
