Home Farmhouse

A truly homely experience…

Approaching nearly 500 years old and retaining many of its original features – beams, inglenook fireplace and winding staircases, makes this a must visit Wolsey Lodge. Most important of all, though, is the feeling of friendliness and warmth which many B&B guests remark on when they enter the house for the first time.

Each of the three charming bedrooms enjoys its own approach staircase and en suite bathroom. The bedrooms have extremely comfortable beds made up traditionally with sheets, blankets, and eiderdown and are provided with television and radio, fresh fruit, chocolates, and flapjacks.

Tea and cake are offered to bed and breakfast guests on arrival – in the delightful walled garden which is part of the National Garden Scheme and full of a marvelous selection of plants and colour, of course, if the weather permits. Otherwise make yourself comfortable in the enticing drawing room, which is also a wonderful location to un-wind after a busy day. 

Breakfast, to order the night before, including homemade bread, jams and blackberry and apple compote from the garden, and is usually a lively talkative affair with Nigel’s military ancestors looking down approvingly from the walls.

Your B&B Hosts

Home Farmhouse is home indeed to Nigel and Rosemary Grove-White and Goliath and Samson, two miniature wirehaired dachshunds who offer the friendliest welcome. Nigel retired to become Chief Executive of the British Horse Society, prior to which, he spent 32 years in the Army. Rosemary trained as an interior designer and for thirty years has very successfully run her own interior design, soft furnishing, and upholstery business.


Home Farmhouse is located in Charlton, close to Banbury in Oxfordshire. From this tranquil setting, you are, placed to enjoy Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, Blenheim Palace, Waddesdon Manor and Hidcote. Beautiful Cotswold villages such as Chipping Campden, Broadway, Snowshill and the Slaughters are just a stone's throw away and Silverstone Grand Prix, Blenheim Horse Trials, and Bicester Village are all close by. There is a good friendly pub just 100 yards away - reservations recommended.
