Are you pet friendly?

One of our Farmhouse Loft rooms, room 1, is pet friendly. Our pub also allows dogs. We provide dog treats and dog bowls, and charge £20 per dog, per night.

Accessibility

All of our bedrooms are located on the first floor and unfortunately we do not have a lift. The ground floor is wheelchair accessible. 

Is there someone available 24 hours a day?

A duty manager will be in the building 24 hours a day, available for any queries you may have.

Are you family friendly?

As we are a pub there may be times, especially at the weekends, where the ground floor may not be a suitable environment for young children. Please also note that rooms are located above the pub and restaurant, and there may occasionally be some noise disturbance as we are an old building.

Whats the soundproofing like?

The building is a 16th century farmhouse, that was later converted into a pub as the Mason family’s gift to their butler. As much as we have tried to soundproof the rooms, there is still a bit of noise from room to room, and the windows are the original leaded windows with single pane glass. However, we are located in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside, and the surrounding area is very peaceful and quiet.

What is your cancellation policy?

Please see the T&C’s page on our website for details of our cancellation policy as well as our other booking terms.

On a final note…

We are not perfect and the building does have its quirks! Some may say that this is part of staying in an old and historic building… we certainly wouldn’t swap it for the world! We are home grown in every way and always strive to ensure that our guests have a most enjoyable stay.
