Your B&B Hosts
Your hosts at the Old Manor House are Jane and William Pusey. William is a barrister whose interests include history, art and travel. Jane loves gardening, tennis, art and is a Cordon Bleu cook. She also likes walking, for which she's in the right place: plenty of walks, including the Shakespeare Way, leave from the door and Jane is happy to advise where is best to go. They share the property with a super-friendly flat coated retriever. Visiting dogs are welcome but only by arrangement and there is a charge for canine guests.
This property is perfectly placed for visiting the Cotswolds, Stratford-upon-Avon, Stow on the Wold, Daylesford, Cirencester, Burford, Woodstock and Broadway. The Royal Shakespeare Theatre (RSC) at Stratford is in easy reach, as are Warwick Castle and the larger towns of Gloucester, Oxford and many guests find it a very convenient base for the Cheltenham Festival. In the immediate area there are plenty of lovely villages with a selection of excellent places to eat. There are three nearby railway stations of which Banbury, with its direct link to London Marlybone, is perhaps the most useful. Birmingham Airport is 40 minutes away by car, London 90 minutes.
