“All the comforts of home with wonderful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

If you want to stay in a charming, characterful, comfortable family cottage with wonderful service, then this is the place for you. Our room was spotlessly clean, warm and cosy and there were some lovely touches, like the small bottle of wine and nuts, bottled water and well-stocked tea & coffee tray. Our hosts, Graham and Jenny were wonderfully friendly and welcoming, and served us a superb Full English Breakfast (possibly the best we've ever tasted !) with optional fresh fruit salad, assorted cereals, and lashings of hot toast.

The location is really convenient, being close to major road and rail links, but feels as if it's in the heart of the English countryside. We have no hesitation in fully recommending this as a wonderful place to stay.

Comfortable, spotless, convenient, welcoming and attractive.

This excellent B&B in a delightful family home provided everything I could possibly want when I was visiting a friend nearby.

My continental breakfast included fresh fruit salad, good yoghurts, cereal, toast, spreads and excellent coffee served with a view across the garden to fields beyond.

Room Tip: I had the ensuite room.

The Old Cottage is one of Buckinghamshire's best kept secrets.

A convenient stopover if walking the Thames. Good places to eat close by and only a few minutes from Cookham and Cliveden.

Wonderful; absolutely wonderful.

This is an extremely comfortable, well appointed b and b. Graham and Jenny are great hosts, friendly and welcoming. It was lovely weather when we were there so we took advantage of the balcony outside our room overlooking the garden and fields. So relaxing. All in all a great place to stay and I am sure we wiill go back.

Graham and Jenny came out to greet us before we'd even rung the bell. Lovely room with complimentary wine (much needed after a long bike ride!). 10 mins walk to Cookham. Can't fault this place and would definitely go back.

I have stayed with Jenny once before some years ago and was equally welcomed back then. After a three hour drive, made to feel at home with a fabulous roast chicken and great conversation. Room immaculate and the whole place tastefully done. Lovely views over fields, fab huge breakfast {beats the rubbish I had at a Premier Inn last week}. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else I was working down this way again.

Delightful stay at this wonderful, warm little B & B. Stayed for two nights work related and it was a fabulous haven. Genuinely charming hosts, Jenny and Graham for whom nothing was too much trouble. Great breakfast with newspapers and the radio. Recommended wholeheartedly.
