My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend, and we both loved it. Nick, the owner, welcomed us and we immediately felt at home. He was available when we wanted to chat about the area or to suggest where to go for dinner, but wasn't overbearing. The house was beautiful, full of interesting trinkets and pieces of art. We stayed in a room with an ensuite bathroom, which looked out onto a pretty garden, with lots of hydrangeas. It was a very relaxing place to stay.
We ate breakfast in the garden room with the other guests, and it was freshly cooked and delicious. There is a good choice of breakfast available, from cereals, fresh fruits, yogurts, to full English breakfasts, with juices or tea/ coffee. There was an evening room, with a choice of DVDs, board games, magazines and an 'honesty' bar, which we enjoyed sitting in after a day of long walks!
The grounds are immaculate, and worth exploring. There is an arboretum just across the road that is also part of the property.
I would highly recommend this B&B if you are looking for a relaxing breaking the stunning Cotswolds. We will definitely be coming back!
