The room was fairly nondescript with just enough room around the end of the KS bed to require you to walk sideways (like a crab) to get to the shower room. Again if you have mobility issues or are on the large side, an awkward room to stay in.
Very good breakfast, attentive staff when there. As this Guesthouse is over a tearoom there is no one present managing the building after 5.30pm (although there is an emergency mobile number should you need it).
Set in beautiful countryside north of Oxford along the River Glyme, Woodstock is an attractive small town and home to Blenheim Palace: the seat of the Dukes of Malborough since the18th century, and one of the finest palaces in England. The old parish church has Norman features, and there are some beautiful old buildings in the town. The literary festival draws throngs of book lovers in September.
