Booked last minute, and because it was "close" to Blenheim Castle. When we arrived, seemed to be in the middle of no where. The accommodation is at the back of the pub. Plenty of off street parking, and seems safe. Check in was friendly and easy. The room is a good size, has a good sized bathroom, and all very clean. Toiletries provided. A decent sized TV provided. Only thing missing really is a refrigerator. Its not essential. Breakfast was a part of the night, and this was very good. If you have mobility issues, be aware that there are 2 levels of accommodation, and the access is via stairways. All in all a site that I would return to.
