This property is perfect for a break away to Oxford. Stayed for 2 nights with my wife, we absolutly loved it. Location is about 20 mins away drive from city center. You have all the elements of a perfect country side retreat. Room is large, full of light with clever windows, simply but tastefully decorated. Bathroom is clean and perfect too. Bath is big enough to relax fully, proper. Amenities are also outstanding. The food was top notch. Proper countryside ingredients carefully prepared. The kitchen care, you can see it, taste it. I cant recommend this place enough. If not for a room, for the food. Breskfast was also wonderful, the quality of the meat is obvious at every bite. We went for a walk around the area after dinner, it was divine just using littles footpaths well known from the locals. Its very charming. One last word sbout the staff. They are outstanding from the barman, to tbe wsiter all tbe way to manger or host. They cant do enough for you. I rarely leave such reviews, but credits is due here. I will go back just for the people and to try the sunday roast! Thanks to all for a perfect break.
