Holmby House

Surrounded by undulating countryside…

A truly lovely Wolsey Lodge, offering everything you would expect from bed and breakfast accommodation in a perfect Oxfordshire location. Surrounded by spectacular countryside views and on the edge of a small village, sits Holmby House. An impressive drive leads to a wisteria clad, elegant Victorian house.

On arrival, guests are welcomed with tea and homemade cakes in front of a log fire in the winter or on the terrace in the summer. Inside, the recently restored house is luxuriously decorated with classic fabrics and antique furniture.

The bed and breakfast bedrooms have just the same luxury finish, they are also spacious and light with fantastic views. The rooms have the usual array of facilities including large comfortable beds, good sized baths or power showers, television, wifi, fresh flowers, a bowl of fruit and bottled mineral water.

The garden is a colourful, fragrant oasis and includes a secluded summer house. For the more active guest, there is an outdoor heated pool, tennis court, and croquet lawn - what more could guests want when visiting the Cotswold and Oxfordshire?

Holmby House is wonderful. We have stayed in other places in the area and there is no comparison to this lovely place
