The Glove House
Ranked #2 of 13 Woodstock B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 July 2014

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.

My friends and I stayed for two nights at the Glove House in June, 2014. Historic building. Gracious hosts. Beautiful interior design. Gorgeous beds. Amazing breakfasts. Elegant hospitality. This was my absolute favorite place to stay in the UK. Do not hesitate to book right away - you will not be disappointed. Thank you to hosts Caroline and Francesco; you deserve every success.

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
