“Simply Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2012

My excellent stay at Overtown Manor has finally made me joing up to Trip advisor so that I can share this wonderful B&B with you all. I travel a lot and I feel that this will be the first of many reviews of hotels. And I bet that few will match the excellence of Overtown Manor.

Arriving at Overtown Manor through leafy country lanes you find your self driving up a gravel drive lined with old stone mushrooms and you come to a stop right out side the beatiful histoic manor house. A couple of steps, again guarded by the giant stone mushrooms lead you to the front door. Nancy, the owner, welcomed my girlfrined and I in. Asked us if we need any assistance with our bags and showed us to our room.

It was early August and Overtown Manor usually closes for a few weeks in the summer so that Nancy can spend time with her two children but because of a mistake on my part with double booking myself in September I asked if we could change the dates to the first week in August. Nancy, with no hesitaiton changed my booking. Since, thery are usually closed this meant that we had the choice of the four rooms as no one else was staying at the manor that weekend. We had the place to ourselves.

Once we had settled in to our luxurious room, which came with homemade cookies, Nancy said that there would be cake and tea or elderflower cordial available and since it was a nice sunny day would we like it in the garden – before the rains came again?

Homemade chocolate sponge cake with refreshing elderflower cordial in beatiful mature garden was a perfect way to start our weekend break. While having cake Nancy checked on us and asked if we had plans for an evening meal. We hadn’t and she recomneded a nice little italian in town close by. Nancy even offered to book it for us. We graciously acdepted and the meal was delightful.

We stayed at Overtown Manor for two nights and vistied the local area. We visited Stonehenge and Avebury and before we set out each morning we were welecomed by a full cooked breakfast (chocies where made the previous night), homemade muffins and banana bread (still warm), fresh fruit, cerial, toast and coffee and tea… what a way to start the day.

Nancy looked afterwards superbly and on our second evning we arrived back and since we were the only guests there missed Nancy, who was busy in the garden with her children. We went to our room and showered and changed for the evening. On leaving the room for our meal we found a tray of homemade cakes and elderflower cordial waiting outside of our door, Nancy did not want to disturb us. We brough thte cake in and decided that woud be perfect desert when we came back.

I cannot recommend Overtown Manor highly enough and Nancy certainly desrves all of the 5 stars.

Everthing about this place is wonderful. Nancy bends over backwards to help. She never stops working - or smiling. The rooms are beautiful and exceptionally clean. Believe me - I am fussy! I was shattered upon arrival and we had two brilliant nights' sleep. There is also a gorgeous drawing room in which to relax. The setting is stunning. Breakfasts are delicious- Nancy's muffins are to die for. Would like to move in! We went for the Marlborough Jazz Festival, but there is so much to see in this stunning part of the world. We ate at Silks on the Downs, which was fab.

Recently stayed here for 3 nights. Nancy is an amazing hostess with personal touches of hospitality like receiving an unexpected cream tea on arrival. The rooms are spotlessly clean with comfortable beds, large bathrooms and bath-robe size towels! Breakfast comprises fresh fruit, juices, cereals along with cooked to order breakfast. A wonderful find within distance of Bath, Cotswolds. Only 4 miles from Swindon trainstation.

If you are looking for a bed and breakfast in or around Swindon, I would highly recommend Overtown Manor. Nancy, Percy and family are cordial hosts. What sets Overtown Manor apart is that this is still a working Manor and Nancy and Percy do a wonderful job of balancing both. The Manor has all the amenities you would seek while on holiday: a swimming pool for summer use, Internet (should you need to stay connected), en-suite water closets (bathroom) and take away lunches. The Manor is very clean with a charming, comfortable feel. The room we used was very spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast foods are fresh and sourced locally. If you are looking for a quaint place to recharge your battery, I would look no further than Overtown Manor.

We only stayed here one night but plan to make it the first of many. I can only agree with all the positive comments made by others. Our room was huge, Nancy the owner was a delight and her breakfast was amazing. Can't wait to sample more of her home cooking. Situated in a quiet location but only a short drive from the M4.

The food was amazing too. We were greeted with a home made birthday cake (the best cake I have ever eaten - and I've eaten a few) with a chorus of Happy birthday.
