This B & B is the absolute best! If I could give it a 6-circle rating I would do so without hesitation. I have stayed in a lot of B & B's in Britain, including 13 on my recent month-long visit to England, and all pale by comparison to Valley Views. Owner Pam has won awards and they are well deserved. She certainly has learned how to make her guests feel pampered and welcomed. When I arrived, hot and thirsty from my day's hike on the Cotswold Way, Pam provided a large pitcher of iced water which I drank in her sunny and inviting Guest Room as I read the daily paper. She then showed me to her upstairs bedroom with a double bed and with an adjoining bath, her only accommodation on the second floor. She also has two double rooms downstairs. She asks 65-75 GBP for each of her rooms, but she charges significantly less for solo travelers. Pam has thought of everything to make her guests comfortable. The in-room amenities she provided were wonderful, including 9 different kinds of boxed teas to choose from, other drink choices, bottled water, a small frig with a pitcher of chilled milk, and a bag of 5 large chewy cookies. When I took a bath in her spotlessly clean bathroom I had a mind-boggling choice of lotions and bath products to choose from. Her cooked breakfast was excellent, and once again a wide array of choices, including 12 different kinds of cereals, fresh fruit, and 7 different Jams -- all homemade by Pam! This place is an absolute gem and owner Pam
White can't win enough awards in my opinion.
