Have never written a tripadvisor review before but we were so impressed with The Glove House I just had to.
We got married in Blenheim Palace in July and we were looking for a luxury B&B for me and my family to stay, we found this place on tripadvisor and it looked perfect.
The Glove House far exceeded our expectations. Caroline and Francesco were exceptionally accommodating. They were kind enough to reserve the rooms for us for a few days so that we could come and view in person. The rooms were luxurious and the location next to Blenheim Palace was perfect.
We arrived late and were stressed with last minute wedding preparations but Caroline and Francesco were so helpful and tried to make everything as easy as possible for us. They took our bags up to our room and offered us a glass of prosecco.
Breakfast was homemade and delicious, they used local products (tomatoes grown 2 doors down, meat from the butcher in the village) and we could really taste the quality of the ingredients. As we were getting ready for the wedding that morning we all ate breakfast at different times (and we kept changing our times) but Caroline and Francesco accommodated us with a smile.
Throughout the day there were a lot of people coming and going for the wedding and they ensured that this all ran smoothly.
The Glove House really is a hidden gem in Woodstock. It's a wonderful boutique B&B that perfectly blends period character and luxury. We could not have been the easiest of guests and we really appreciate the attention and hospitality from Caroline and Francesco, it really did help make our wedding day extra special. If you are thinking about getting married at Blenheim (or just for a romantic getaway), book The Glove House.
