Lavender Cottage
Ranked #4 of 6 Kidlington B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 October 2013

We stayed for 3 nights at Lavender Cottage in September. What an absolute find. We stayed in the twin room, the beds were so comfortable, the décor just beautiful, the bathroom as everywhere else was spotless. The breakfast yummy, loved the different fresh fruit every morning.
The bus stopped just round the corner to go into Oxford. There are 3 pubs within walking distance in the town.
Rosemary and Peter were so welcoming, they are the perfect hosts, we have been singing their praises to everyone, we can highly recommend Lavender Cottage, a delightful experience. Thank You, Danielle & Brian

We have just returned from a two night stay at Lavender cottage. This is the first time we have stayed here and from the moment we stepped through the front door we were made to feel at home, Rosemary and Peter made us so welcome that we felt that they were old friends. There home is special, we stayed in a lovely spacious room and we were very comfortable, the bed was the best we had ever slept in and did not want to get out of it in the mornings the room was spotless, the breakfast was the best you could wish for, and our stay was all to short. We will be back. Thank you Peter and Rosemary for all your hard work Tom & Dawn

We had a fantastic weekend very much enhanced by our stay at Lavender Cottage. The B&B is situated in a quiet position but near to an excellent bus service that goes to the city centre. For the more energetic, the Oxford canel is also close to hand giving the opportunity to ride right into the centre too. It is ideally situated for Blenheim Palace too.

Peter & Rosemary our hosts were very hospital and the breakfasts were amazing not least the hand made organic bread, They only take couples or families at one time so you really have the feel of being house guests. The attention to detail is excellent with a real period feel to both the bedroom and breakfast room with a light and airy sitting room for contrast. The garden is also lovely if you want to be outside.

I would very much recommend this B&B.

This was a wonderful place to stay. Thoughtful hosts who catered for a wheat flour allergy and suggested suitable places to eat too. Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit cereals, yoghurt and a choice of cooked breakfast with home made bread.
The room was stylish and comfortable with crisp comfortable bedding and the ensuite bathroom was beautifully appointed.
We stayed one night to attend a friend's party and everything we needed was within walking distance. Parking is easy too.
Thank you so much for your great hospitality

My cousin came from Australia to visit and I booked them into Lavender Cottage because I thought it looked like a perfect English cottage , and how right I was. Rosemary and Peter Welham were the perfect hosts.Nothing was too much trouble and the house was just beautiful.The twin room with its own private bathroom was just lovely with a beautiful sitting room available downstairs to watch tv or just chill. On their last day it was my cousins birthday and she received a box of chocolates and a balloon from Peter and Rosemary , a really sweet gesture. I would recommend this B&B to any one .Wonderful

I'd been dwelling in Lavender cottage for 15days and believe me this is a 5star B&B at the cheapest price of the Oxford area!
They clean everything everyday very very very meticulously, every day I'd fresh flower in the room, snacks, water, fresh milk, te', everything You need.
The breakfast was amazing, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, eggs, beans, toast, mushroom, bacon, milk, jams, etc......that they can do in an infinite of variations...and if You want something more or just different, You have just to ask and Your dreams will be fulfilled.
I could tell that the owner are Friendly but these would be saying nothing, they both are much more than Friendly...I've been literally impressed by them!!
You want to know something of very cute? I'd been there for Easter and in the morning, for breakfast I did found a Easter chocolate egg!! It was so cute!!
In conclusion, this is literally a Paradise Point, everything is Amazing!
