Reviewed 22 November 2012

Spent the night here before attending an early morning meeting and was impressed by the accommodation and service. The hosts were lovely, talking about the property and business, The property was beautiful, set back a little from the road(despite directions I missed it on the first pass!), lovely period styling, with wooden beams, you enter through the kitchen and dining room and up some stairs to the first level, my room was up a further set of stairs in the loft, but was huge with a massive en-suite. I won't pretend the decor was modern, but everywhere was clean and really added to the charming feel of the place, there was a reasonable amount of parking at the front and large garden at the rear. I missed a cooked breakfast due to an early start, but a place had been laid for me when I got up with cereals, yogurt, fruit and toast available. Modern flat screen TV in the room and Tea and coffee.
The only reason I haven't given five stars, was my en-suite lacked a shower, meaning waiting to use a shared bathroom in the morning, and also the lack of locks on room doors and steepness of the stair cases(both add to the charm of the place, but perhaps wouldn't suit all guests!) Beware low beams/doors!!!

All in all a lovely place to stay, and if your an aviation fan as I am, its right by Dalton Barracks (formerly RAF Abingdon) and the owner has a good knowledge about the base/airshows. I would have no hesitation in staying again if in the area.

Room Tip: Loft en suite had no shower

We stayed last weekend. We found this BB to be very comfortable and run by a lovely couple. It was very relaxed and friendly. Lovely big room in a great location. Also very good value. Excellent breakfast and great customer service and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed here over the August bank holiday 2012 for one night and found it very comfortable and relaxing. It was clean, tidy and well-maintained in general, and the kingsize bed we had in the loft room was neither too hard nor too soft for us. Breakfast was plentiful and well-cooked by Judy and fairly generous with several repeat offers of more toast, tea and coffee. The gardens are lovely and if the weather hadn't been so wet we would have enjoyed them more. The house was easy-access at any time of day, with a hidden front-door key. Tip: they accept cash or cheques, but not bank card payments.

Room Tip: Loft room in main house has ensuite, not sure about the others.

Immediately made at home, this is my 4th visit. Close to the heart of England , it is convenient to buses, trains and Heathrow. The place has a fantastic garden. Breakfast is superb...I will return again and again.

Room Tip: Wifi on the left side of the building and the ensuite only has a bath, but the showers on the floor...

I have stayed at the White House several times now. Judy and David make their guests feel extremely welcome. The rooms are wonderfully clean, comfortable and attractive. The house, which is several hundred years old, is quiet and charming. The full English breakfast is delicious. I have never found anything to criticise. It is the nicest B & B I have ever stayed in.
