We were send there by Booking.com when our original booking in Oxford was messed up. Even thought it's a B&B the room [extra spacious] and enormous, superb bathroom looked more like a 5 star hotel. The bathroom was huge, with both XXL bathtub and big shower cabin. Our room contained also a private terrace which we sadly couldn't used due to the bad weather. The owner is a lovely lady who will serve you the most delicious breakfast

Rooms very nicely appointed. I was in a single which was small but had everything I needed, bed v comfortable and ensuite v good. Breakfast choice was excellent and host was so friendly and helpful. Only negative was doors to rooms tended to bang shut if guests not careful and soft close mechanism would stop this. Was great location for frilford golf club where I was playing a comp.

Impeccable service, beautiful rooms, amazing breakfast. Can’t fault it. We booked the same day we stayed and asked if a vegan breakfast was possible - it certainly was! Loved the home made hummus especially. Thanks Sigrid.

If you're travelling in the Oxford area, this is the B&B I'd recommend without a shadow of a doubt. Since this was our second stay, we knew exactly what to expect: a professionally run B&B and a truly warm welcome from Sigrid. Right from the start, she made us feel right at home. During our stay, she gave us some useful tips for the area. Her freshly made breakfasts were still as delicious and beautifully presented as we remembered and there is plenty to choose from. Everything is prepared with a true love for food and a keen eye for detail. The ample off-road parking also remains a big plus. We booked the superior room for five nights (because we liked it so much two years ago), which is very spacious, tastefully decorated and very clean. It has a large bed, a big wardrobe (very handy if you are staying for several nights), a sitting area, a desk, a luxurious bathroom and a private balcony, which we got to enjoy more this time round due to the beautiful weather. There's also a mini fridge on the landing, stocked with some cold beverages, all sold at very democratic prices. B&B Rafters' location gave us the opportunity to re-visit the following gorgeous Cotswolds' villages: Bibury, Lower Slaughter, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water (we can recommend The Chestnut Tree for a cream tea) and Broadway. A must for William Morris fans is Kelmscott Manor, which will close for a couple of years for some necessary repair works till May 2021. For fans of "Chief Inspector Morse", there's the Boat Inn located in Thrupp, which offers good pub food, has a parking at the front and a big garden at the back. The pub, which is beautifully located, has its own "Morse Room" with a couple of photographs of "The Last Enemy" from 1989 (so don't expect dozens of them). We also visited Aston Pottery, not far from Bampton, which is ideal if you are looking for an original gift or souvenir and is much bigger than we expected. It has a large tearoom and some gorgeous flowers on display in the "Jubilee Walk" next to the car park.

We stayed at Rafters for 2 nights over a weekend. This property is top class in every way, immaculately presented with every need anticipated. Our room was spacious and comfortable,with a luxury bathroom and seating area on a private balcony. Breakfast was superb - go for the special porridge and sample the home made preserves! Sigrid is the perfect hostess, friendly and helpful, with local knowledge of restaurants, parking etc We are ultra fussy travelers,so if we were impressed...🎖️💥😀
