Reviewed June 29, 2013

Gilly coped with every challenge we threw at her. A great place to stay, would definitely stay again. Convenient to park&ride for Oxford. A good choice of local restaurants. Down a private road so may not be recognized by SatNav so check directions.

A lovely warm welcome on arrival. Very clean and comfortable room in a beautiful house. Perfectly cooked breakfast and treats in the room (fruit and chocolates). Gilly was so helpful and friendly and made us really feel at home. Peaceful, residential location - not too far from Oxford but far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle. Park and ride very convenient and value for money. All in all a wonderful place to stay and very reasonably priced. Thanks for everything, Gilly, we'll definitely be visiting again.

What a delightful place to stay, warm friendly welcome from Gilly and nothing was too much trouble. Beautifully furnished rooms, bed linen and towels were exceptional. So relaxing and we slept so well in the more than comfortable bed. Breakfast was delicious, with lots of choice and fresh fruit available. Was an ideal stop over, with off road parking.....we will look forward to returning in the year....thank you for your hospitality.

Room Tip: We stayed in the front room and the shower was great...we saw the other room but it was already book...

The place was clean, tidy and newly furnished. Great bedroom and bathroom. Superb breakfast.
10mins away from the center of Oxford.Gill was a wonderful host. I haven't heard any noise coming from the highway and slept really well.

stayed there for one night last weekend and were very impressed indeed. Such a lovely welcome from Jilly, a terrifically well appointed room with underfloor heating and airconditioning. A well fitted bathroom and a breakfast to die for. They have a large oriental cat who is definitely the boss but really friendly and doesn't make himself a nuisance. We love cats and dogs so he was welcome. Jilly's dog is a new arrival and a bit yappy at first but soon calms down. Sound insulation is the only problem as we had trouble getting to sleep due to traffic noise from the A40 just about 50 metres away, a fact that we had not been aware of. Also we could hear somebody on the phone in the house until quite late accompanied by what seemed like a TV programme. The phone person started up again at about 6.30 am. Surprising seeing as the house is only 8 years old. I would not stay there again because of this problem.

Room Tip: take earplugs.

This is an excellent location for Oxford, about 15 minutes drive away. The owner Jilly is super. The B&B is spacious, spotless and stylish. Our bedroom was appointed better than most B&B's with a generous fresh fruit selection, quality chocolates, and good selection of teas, coffee etc.

The bathroom had a roomy walk in shower and quality towels, consumables etc. Breakfast was really great and presentation was deliciously tempting. Ahhhh superlatives, how can I do this review without so many? Dinner at the local pub recommended was also great and reasonably priced and we noted there was a lot of choice in the village.

The only slight negative was the night time sound of a busy road but having discussed this we would in future bring our ear plugs as a trade off just to stay here again.

Room Tip: Maybe there is another bedroom not near the main road? We didn't mention the noise as the owner...
