In all of years traveling Europe, the Homelands was one of the best experiences we've had at a b&b. The b&b is located on a quiet country lane near impressive hills with horses. We stayed there for six nights and used Homelands as our base as we explored the Cotswolds. From here, we accessed Oxford, Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon and the various Cotswolds villages. Great location, but one does need a vehicle to get around. There is a bus stop within a short walking distance, but we weren't successful in deciphering the schedule or regularity of service. Our GPS device directed us to the Homelands without incident.
Our room was immaculate with a nice sized and comfortable bed overlooking the hills. The bathroom was spotless with toiletries provided. Homelands also has a sun room and pallor for use by the guests. The sun room overlooks a large and beautiful "backyard" where Erik and Nikki keep gardens, fruit trees, beehives, and chickens. The rooms are cleaned daily and are always fresh. There's also free wi-fi through the house which we used extensively.
Breakfasts were some of the best I've had at a b&b. Fresh food (eggs from Erik's catch, honey from Nikki's bees, freshly cured bacon, and homemade breads, sausage and fruit spreads). Plentiful take to start the day.
Erik was a wonderful and gracious host - full of interesting opinion about various topics when we had conversation during breakfast. He also has lots of information about the area and he was always willing to lend us a hand in planning our day.
Clearly we enjoyed both the accommodations and the Erik's company. My wife and I very highly recommend this b&b if you looking for a place in the Cotswolds. Thank you Erik and Nikki!
