We recently made our second visit to Buckle House as we so enjoyed staying there during the summer of 2009.
Mark and Donna, the owners, are both wonderful hosts; very friendly and helpful, and they provide everything you might need for a perfect stay and then go further with extra thoughtful touches.
We had homemade flapjack (made by Mark) every day to enjoy with tea and coffee in our lovely bedroom; fresh milk and bottles of water were provided and kept cool in the small fridge in the room which was much appreciated. We also had bathrobes, lovely toiletries and fresh flowers - all adding to the attention to detail.
Breakfast was a triumph and served in their beautiful dining room overlooking the garden. We had a choice of fresh fruit, cereals, fresh fruit juices. toast and homemade preserves and a wide choice of food for a splendid cooked breakfast.
The house and garden are delightful; Mark and Donna grow fresh fruit and veg in part of their large garden with hens providing the eggs for breakfast.
We stayed in a double bedroom with a fine view over the fields and found the location ideal for touring round the Cotswold villages and Shakespeare Country.
The only thing we ask if you read this review is please don't try to book when we want to stay again!
