“Family home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Staying here is as much like visiting distant relatives as it is staying in a B&B. The bedrooms are sizeable and have the usual facilities and great beds. What makes them different is that there is family stuff around (such as old posters put behind the beds and sports medals hanging from the ceiling). There is an eclectic collection of books lying about (so it feels a bit bookshop as well). The breakfasts are taken in the family kitchen and are very tasty. There are two aspects which I think give a flavour of the place. First, you must learn to duck under the beams (or bang your head). Second, there is a kettle etc in the room, but if you want milk then (rather than little packets of plastic milk) Carmel will get you some fresh milk from the kitchen. How civilised, warm and welcoming.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the road are quieter.

I recently enjoyed a fantastic stay at Lexton House. I was there for two nights and enjoyed a very comfortable room. A special mention has to go to the breakfast which didn't disappoint!

Carmel made me feel very welcome and I would throughly recommend this B&B.

Having stayed once before in the double under the eaves, we came back and stayed in the twin on the first floor, which was even more comfortable (no low beams). Carmel welcomed us and made us feel at home. The beds were just how we like them - firm, with lovely soft feather pillows and duvets and we had an en suite with bath and shower (though the lack of a door from the bedroom might not suit everyone). The room was nicely furnished and we had tea and coffee and lots of magazines and books to browse. Breakfast is great, with fruit, full English and yogurt. Very good value for a lovely B&B.

Room Tip: twin is lovely and sunny in the evening and quiet as it's furthest from the road. Double under t...

We stayed here for one night. We were greeted by Carmel she made us very welcome. Beautiful room and Bathroom although the en suite was just outside the bedroom door which I didn't like as like my bathroom in the same room but that is just me. We had a lovely full English breakfast which was piping hot. My only other concern was not having a key to lock the bedroom door when you went out or went to bed.

Room Tip: our room was on the first floor very quiet and comfortable

We have enjoyed a very pleasant stay at lexton guest house.
Carmel greeted us and made us very welcome during our stay.We have 4 children (14,11,7 & 6 months) we all had beautiful rooms and were very pleased with the hospitalilty and lovely breakfast. Carmel was warm, friendly and informative about the local area and its history.
We would definitely stay here again if visiting thre area and would recommend this guest house to others.

Room Tip: All rooms were good with nice views.

Lexton House is in the beautiful village of Middleton Cheney where I grew up. We booked into Lexton House on 7th September as we were attending a family celebration. We were offered a friendly welcome by Carmel (who is lovely) and shown to our room. Our room was on the top floor of the building. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bedroom itself had plenty of light and the windows were open when we arrived adding to the freshness of the room. We walked through to the very large bathroom with a free-standing bath and plenty of towels. After a fantastic nights sleep we were treated to a MEGA breakfast - You could help yourself to Cereal, Fresh Ice Cold Milk, Orange Juice, an array of fresh fruit, yoghurt, toast, jam and marmalade. After being asked how we'd like our eggs Carmel placed down a LOVELY cooked breakfast of Bacon, Sausage, Fried Eggs, Mushroom and Tomato - no sign of a Baked Bean (a bonus in my opinion). Lovely pot of tea and anything you wanted. Highly recommend a stay here if you are visiting. Carmel was chatty during breakfast but not intrusive. 10 out of 10. Thank you. Paul and Jim (will definitely stay again)

Room Tip: We were on the top floor (right as you hit the top of the stairs) - Lovely breeze coming through the...
