This was the first time that we had left our two and a half year old daughter with relatives and were feeling anxious when we arrived. The house is magnificent, full of period features and the dining room and adjacent room have to be seen to be believed! There is also a new build cloisters that is an ecologically friendly build but bagged by Christine's son! Fair enough I suppose when you consider that he both designed and built it along with the befuddled man mentioned in a previous review (what was that woman on??!!) I was welcomed by Christine's husband and no i didn't catch his name either but he was charm personified. The bedroom that we had was the cream one which is large and spotlessly clean and very warm. I was meeting my wife at a local pub for dinner which involved a twenty minute walk down dark country lanes. Christine had supplied both a rechargable torch and a high vis jacket for this very purpose (how thoughtful). I thought that this was a lovely touch and came to really appreciate it as I set off to the pub.
Breakfast in the morning was delicious organic food and Christine made us feel most welcome. If you're looking for a bed and breakfast with style, class and the very warmest of welcomes look no further than Fyfield Manor.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 12th century manor countryside guest house situated in the village of Benson. It has recently been restored and refurbished and now offers very comfortable hotel-equivalent accommodation in a building with features which span 7 centuries, many of which have been hidden for over 250 years. Fyfield offers a friendly and personal service without being intrusive. We offer a good selection of organic and healthy options for breakfast but still maintain the traditional English breakfast. The 3 rooms are very individual in their character and furnishings but all have either king or super king beds, are large and bright and have all comforts. There are 3 local pubs within walking distance and several gourmet pubs and restaurants within a short drive. A regular bus goes directly to Oxford and Cholsey train station is within 3 miles. ... more less
