My mum and I have just returned from a 2 night break at Hackers End Bed & Breakfast which was most enjoyable. The Location is perfect for sight seeing around the Cotswolds including areas we visited Bourton on the Water, Stow on the Wold, Burford, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Morton- in- marsh, Oxford, to name just a few.
The accommodation was superb, clean and spacious with separate tv lounge and comfortable sofa for reading or just relaxing after a long day sightseeing. Wide choice of teas and coffees available with biscuits and chocolates which I couldn't resist. A mini fridge containing fresh milk, water, orange even a home made elderflower cordial which I sampled and enjoyed.
The bed was so comfortable we were reluctant to get up on a morning until the smell of home cooked breakfast drifted up the stairs. Spoilt for choice at breakfast with fresh fruits, yoghurts and cereals a plenty, warm croissants and home made jams. I had a superb Cotswold cooked breakfast which included bacon, egg, sauted mushrooms, tomatoes, sausage and baked beans if you wanted them. My mum had the smoked trout with sauted mushrooms and tomatoes and cleaned her plate. Plenty of tea and toast which kept us going until tea time.
We made new friends during our stay with Mia the Burmese cat who was so friendly and loved her chin tickling and rolled over on our feet also Rafferty and Finnegan the Irish Setters who were always pleased to see us with a warm welcome back after our days out.
We had tea at The Kings Head Inn in Bledington just a few miles away one night which was very nice and the other night at the Greedy Goose which was a lovely pub, nicely decorated but only average food.
On our way back home we stopped off in Stratford Upon Avon and Leamington Spa which ended our trip perfectly.
I can certainly recommend staying at Hackers End if you are visiting this part of the Cotswolds, you will not be disappointed. Christine is a wonderful hostess and has plenty of local knowledge if you need it, she also keeps files full of information for places to visit and eat for her visitors.
