“A dream b&b!!!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

We visited blenheim and stayed over at the glove house on the high st in woodstock and what a delight it was. I would absolutely recommend u visit this b&b as its such a fantastic gem in the village. The rooms were perfect and to an extremely high standard. The breakfast was amazing. There was an excellent choice and I must recommend the Italian scrambled eggs (absolutely amazing!!!). Would definitely recommend and also stay here again! Thank u so much Francesco and Caroline

I stayed for 2 nights and The Glove House is my ideal B & B. Every detail has been thought of. Beautifully decorated rooms with tasteful furnishings. Thick, fluffy towels in the bathroom with quality amenities. Luxurious bedding and a comfortable day bed in the Woodstock Suite for relaxing with one of the magazines provided in the room. The breakfasts were superb, served in the elegant dining room with the old clock quietly ticking in the corner. The poached eggs with roasted tomatoes and basil were delicious. Caroline and Francesco are the perfect hosts - quietly caring without being intrusive. I've travelled a great deal and this is one of the best B & B's I've stayed in. I wish I could have stayed longer.

I am telling everyone to go and stay at this beautiful place.. there is a wonderful feeling of calm and although it is on the road there was no noise. The garden is lovely and the owners very welcoming . We stayed one night as my husband was doing a bike ride from Poole to Chesterfield, the bike was put in a safe place and the breakfast was a hearty one.
Perfect.

Room Tip: We had the Bladon room on the top floor, very quiet, perfect for us. Beautifully decorated, brillian...

This is just a fabulous place to stay! The rooms are luxurious, well appointed with every last detail thought of. Our room was the Woodstock Suite. The room was large and sunny with a separate room with day bed and TV. Bathroom was spacious and altho the shower was over the bath, this did not detract in any way to the amenities of the room. Lovely teas and coffee making facility with biscuits and cold milk in a flask. Breakfast was wonderful, do try the special Italian style scrambled eggs - delicious! The welcome and care from the hosts was also really special. This is a truly special place, don't miss it!

Room Tip: The Woodstock suite was great

This was a luxurious B&B experience. From the moment we set foot in the garden, we could tell that it was a quality place. We had a very comfortable and relaxing mini-break, and the breakfasts each day were amazing. The couple who own this place are lovely and really make you feel at home. Would definitely love to visit again!

Owned and run by Caroline and Francesco, The Glove House is a true gem of a find!

We stayed in The Charlbury Suite, on the top floor of the house (wide steps, excellent carpeting on the stairs - no problem for older guests to manage, and well worth the effort). The suite comprised of two large, exquisitely furnished rooms with loads of light and great ventilation, as all the Georgian windows worked perfectly. The main bedroom was sumptuous. Large king bed with fine linen, superb mattresses and loads of space to unwind in. The second room had been positively 'mixed-up' a little with a combination of TV, large day sofa / bed, a couple of chairs and the most magnificent roll-topped bath in the corner that actually worked with all the other finery. Both rooms were well stocked with a coffee machine, water and other little 'welcomes'.

The main house is beautiful, as are the gardens. The setting is very central and prices, although not low, are in my opinion right on the mark. We looked at high end luxury hotels at £400 per night and found TGH tariff by comparison was excellent value. The suite we had would have been very expensive in a top end hotel. My wife and I had a fantastic weekend in Woodstock, definitely made better by staying at The Glove House. We would return without hesitation.

This is easily the most beautiful little B&B we have ever stayed in. A beautiful property, absolutely lovely hosts, a heavenly room (think White Company meets Georgian period glory) with every little tiny detail thought of (prosecco on arrival, fresh milk for the morning, roll top bath, bath robes, treats box, beautiful linen, high speed wifi - the list goes on) and a delicious breakfast the next morning (Gianduja chocolate spread, Italian style scrambled eggs with parmesan and cream to name but a few of the yummy options). I would not be able to find one fault with it. These guys really know what they are doing. Highly recommended!
