A beautiful unique place
My husband and I booked two nights away as we wanted somewhere really peaceful to relax but still be based close to Oxford city centre. We couldn’t have chosen better, this place is so beautiful and tranquil but much more than that Georgia and Paul are such warm and considerate hosts. From the moment we arrived we were so well looked after and every detail catered for. I mentioned I was on a keto diet and Georgia adapted my breakfast to make sure I could eat it all. We very much enjoyed the morning chats and friendly advice about where to go and what to do in Oxford. The B and B is also extremely convenient for travelling into town - the bus stop is right outside so it was so easy to get about without needing to use our car (meaning we went to lots of the lovely local pubs too :) We loved it so much we extended our stay another night and left on Monday morning. Perfect Perfect Perfect! Thankyou Georgia and Paul.

The most attentive hosts and a wonderful stay
Georgia and Paul are the most attentive hosts, and helped with everything from locking away our bikes, providing phone chargers, booking restaurants, to serving a candlelit breakfast during a power cut (because of the storm). We arrived to tea and home made cake (thank you Georgia!) after cycling from London. The shower was brilliant and the comfy robes were perfect. The room is really nice and cozy, and a lovely place to spend a weekend. The local pub does fantastic food too! Georgia and Paul made sure we had everything we needed and more. You will have a great time here with them if you book, I guarantee it!
