Great English countryside old historic character comfort! Perfect for in-house celebration and dining with friends (as we did), and as a basecamp point for many interesting places to see in the area. Oxford just 'up the road' a few miles and only one hour to Warwick Castle. Delightful rural scenery and walking countryside to enjoy! We shall be back!
Pros: Building architecture, public space, restaurant/bar areas, location, food quality, AND of course the service!
Cons: Our room did not have a mirror (either in the bathroom or bedroom) that a person of less than 5 feet 3 inches could see themselves in! We compromised by taking the mirror off the wall onto the windowsill each time we needed it.
