My husband and I stayed in the downstairs suite of the cottage recently and really enjoyed it. The room was decorated beautifully, with a massive comfy bed and I loved the big roll top bath in the bathroom!
We stayed for 2 nights and ate out both evenings, first night at the Museum pub in the village and the other night at the King John in Tollard Royal. Great food and atmosphere at both.
We were a bit surprised initially that we had to make our own breakfast as we thought it was B&B, but it has a kitchenette which is in a separate part of the suite (private to us) where we could prepare it. They supplied us with bacon, eggs, bread, jam etc. Actually it was nice being left alone and not having to make small talk with the owners as you do in normal B&B's, so it felt really private. They should maybe make it a bit clearer that the 'bed and breakfast' they describe on the website is actually just the ingredients and you will have to make it yourself!
I'm surprised about the other review as we really enjoyed our stay, our room was £125 per night so not cheap but the standard of the room justified it for us. The interjoining door between the suites was locked and we had our own entrance to our suite so I'm not sure why they were worried about this? The owners were very helpful when we arrived and we had a very relaxing, undisturbed stay. There was another couple in the upstairs suite but we didn't hear much apart from them walking around a bit.
We parked in the private driveway for the cottage and there was room for 2 cars.
I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in that area.
