we stayed 5 times and will keep going back to enjoy Chris's warm company, the delicious food and the great fun the Irish Setters provide. We were impressed with the beautiful cottage garden and enjoyed sitting in the garden talking to Chris about her travels, our lives and Irish Setters (as we have one of our own and she has provided very helpful advice when we first got the puppy). Inside the house and the B&B suite are very welcoming, decorated with taste, attention to detail and spotless. There is a living room with chocolates, biscuits, fruits and port, a bedroom decorated in light, relaxing colours and a spacious bathroom. All windows allow perfect views of the village and the countryside.
The breakfast is the best one we've ever had in the UK, not just because of the quality ingredients (sausages from the village butcher that supplies the prime minister:-)), but also the vast choice and exotic options. (Japanese breakfast can be ordered in advance).
We've enjoyed long countryside walks with Chris and her dogs with neighbours sometimes joining in and admiring the views and the bluebells in the right season.
Hacker's End is the perfect base for visiting the Cotswolds, easy driving distance from Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water, Woodstock and Blenheim with their tourist attractions and shopping and still when you return in the afternoon you can enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the house and a good meal at the village pub, chequers, which is a mere 3 min walk.
We'll be back again.
