Wasn't provided with map or directions that was promised, tried to phone the b&b owner for over an hour from Oxford train station- no answer- phone was turned off- managed to find our own way there (searching the internet for maps). Arrived. Couldn't get inside as no one was answering the gate buzzer... FINALLY after beeping over and over we got let in.
Room is nice however the farm was all water logged so couldn't even explore the surrounding area plus the 15minute ride to the city cost 15pounds every time so ended costing an arm and a leg!!!
Owner acted annoyed upon polite requests eg. ordering taxi, hairdryer etc and never once came down to say hello or see if we were ok. Not even when we checked out... just said we "have paid so you can just go"
NOT exactly the tranquil hill farm escape we were expecting.
