I spent two nights here in mid May because it wasn't far from a hotel complex site where I had some business to attend to. Margaret & Phil Drake are excellent hosts & couldn't have been more helpful (I was offered a couple of lifts to help reduce my taxi fares). I stayed in the barn conversion part of the building at the top of the drive, the room was spacious & spotless. There are lovely surrounding gardens & there's a tranquil fish pond and water feature behind the kitchen. If you've no car don't worry, the bus fare from Oxford station (approx 15 miles) is only £3.60 and the stop is only a 2 minute walk from the hotel. There's a nice pub just 5 minutes away too.
