I arrived at the dead of night, not being sure if I had stumbled into the hotel I had booked, or someone's farm home! The air was quiet, a horse neighed and a dog barked...

Here is our review, based on our 9B's criteria:

* Bedroom - Room 1: full of character with a bay window and view over the fields, with books to read and traditional furniture.

* Bed - best night's sleep in ages.

* Bathroom - ensuite with everything needed.

* Breakfast - a pleasure to have it overlooking the countryside with proper farmhouse crockery! Cereals, fruit and cooked breakfast, or anything you'd like.

* Bar - there isn't one. It's a farmhouse.

* Bods - very friendly.

* Budget - great rate booked through a popular 3rd party website.

* Back (i.e. would we return?) - Yes, this was a pit stop for work but would love to come back with the family.

* Beyond the hotel...the villages around the hotel are amazingly pretty, or gentrified, depending on your point of view. The countryside is inarguably attractive and worth loitering if you can. In my room there was a signed autobiography of the owner of nearby The Butchers Arms. I flicked through his amazing story and resolved to call in on the way home.

***Addendum - I did call into The Butchers Arms in Priors Hardwick on my way back, and bumped straight into the patriarchal Lino in the bar area. The uninitiated should not be fooled by the pub-style name; this is a place for fine dining and taking your time, not a quick beer and Ploughman's in the saloon; although local real ale is available ***

Room Tip: Some rooms are upstairs with field views; others in converted barn.

We stayed at Wormleighton for two nights when celebratinbg our 46th wedding anniversary (yes, we've heard all the jokes :-)

Finding the Hall was not straightforward: if you enter the post code into your satnav, you'll be directed to the middle of Nicola and Sam's farm, about half-a-mile from the Hall. If I'd bothered to look at the bottom of their website Contacts page I would have used their excellent directions and avoided this problem. I urge you to do likewise!

It's difficult to find words to describe Wormleighton adequately. Suffice it to say that you will be assured a warm welcome into Sam and Nicola's home, enjoy the peaceful surroundings, have a comfortable night's sleep and enjoy an excellent Aga-cooked country breakfast. If you're offered a home-cooked flapjack, be sure to accept: they're lovely.

Wormleighton is situated conveniently for Oxford, the nearby Heritage Motor Centre, and numerous other attractions, and a goodly selection of (mostly pub) restaurants, you can let Nicola guide you here. We sampled the Carpenter's Arms, and the ever-wonderful Butcher's Arms.

Room Tip: Room 1 is spacious and sunny and has a good view ; we didn't try any other rooms.

Heart felt thanks to Nicola and her team who made my recent stay nothing short of perfect.
Friends and I descended upon Nicola's beautiful home for the launch of the spectacular Dallas Burston IXL Events Centre. From arrival to departure we all felt thoroughly welcome.
Well done on the first class service, accommodation and breakfast.
If it is gracious living with a home from home feel you seek, then this is the place for you.
I very much look forward to returning in the spring.
Thank you.

A warm welcome from one of Nicola's sons, adorable chap! Our room was a converted stable, very plessant, the bed was comfortable and the shower powerful. A lift was offered to pick the car up in the morning, very considerate. 8 am breakfast, a full English no less and the sun rose over the amazing landscape while we ate, stunning. Will definitely return with our sons as I am certsin they too, will love it :)

Room Tip: We stayed in 5 and couldn't fault it.

Cosy comfortable accommodation in a lovely peaceful location surrounded by its own land. We stayed in the main house in a spacious well furnished bedroom with good sized en suite with bath with shower over. Excellent breakfast.The only problem we had, and nothing to do with the accommodation, was finding a taxi on a Saturday night----very difficult and expensive! If you are visiting this area it is an excellent place to stay and you have the option to take back a take away and a bottle of wine and enjoy the ambience of the farm house without the need of a taxi.There is an outdoor pool but in November it wasn't used.

What a wonderful place to stay. Our son was competing on his horse at a venue a short drive away and it was the perfect place for all of us. Do not hesitate to pick up the phone and book a room, fingers crossed that we will be there again soon. Thank you Nicola.

Room Tip: Room 6 has french doors out into the garden, leading to the outdoor swimming pool. Just fabulous.

Really nice place to stay, quiet in the countryside... What a great night's sleep!

Nicola was very helpful suggesting where to go for an evening meal.

WiFi great and fast and cooked breakfast just the way you want it!

Will certainly stay there again when in the area...
