Be pampered by Diana at this well-designed old farmhouse; there are stylish bedrooms, beautiful antiques and breakfasts are a treat

Read guest comments

Choose between a gorgeous ground-floor retreat across the courtyard, or a very pretty twin in the 17th-century farmhouse with barns and stables. The guest sitting room is a clever melody of ancient and contemporary styles: Spanish art, antique sofas, velvet cushions. Beds have seriously good mattresses, feather and down pillows and crisp white linen; bathrooms are smart and sparkling – one with a Victorian roll top. Diana is lovely and will pamper you or leave you, there’s a blissful garden to stroll through, breakfast is a feast of fruits and homemade bread and it’s a hop to the village pub. A fun and stylish treat.

  • All the food is locally sourced; I bake my own bread with flour from a mill near Chipping Norton, I make all my preserves, the eggs are so fresh they are sometimes still warm when I pick them up and my bacon is smoked and cut thick at the smokery nearby
  • The sound of birdsong is the only thing that will wake you in the morning. It's supremely peaceful here. The gardens are open to the public on one Sunday in June, but we love our visitors to enjoy them any time during their stay with us.
  • We are an unlit village. On a clear night the sight of a firmament of stars is just breathtaking
  • We are lucky enough to have a gastro pub 100yds away and Witchford Pottery, 4 miles away where you can watch them throwing huge terra cotta pots or just stroll round their charming gardens
  • The surrounding area bristles with National Trust properties and other notable properties such as Blenheim Palace, Compton Verney and all the Shakespeare houses in Stratford on Avon
  • Whether you enjoy walking, cycling, swimming or horse riding, you will find something to entertain you here!

"Diana is a very flexible hostess - fitted us in at short notice and provided a wonderful room, cosy and spotless. The great pub a few doors up did us a super supper with warm/friendly service. Marvelous bed - slept like a dream. Next time we'll make sure we get chance to stay for breakfast - we'll be back! Perfect."

"Fantastic, clean, tidy, friendly, relaxing. Fabulous breakfast. The owners couldn't have been more lovely. Attentive but respectful of our privacy. They even chilled our Prosecco for us :) Perfect for a weekend getaway."

"Just returned from a lovely weekend stay away from it all, stayed in the Garden room and we had a lovely stay. Diana and Jan are such welcoming hosts and the house is just gorgeous as were the breakfasts. Thoroughly recommend for a relaxing break in the countryside. Great walks too! Karen, London"

"This was a great find in a secret village. Buttslade House passed our test of 'better than home'; a rare welcoming caring ambience is created by the owners and the unobtrusive presence of their two 'girls' the daschunds. We were blessed by warm, sunny autumn weather in which to be pampered by Diana's sumptuous breakfasts - including freshly picked raspberries, Victoria plums and figs. Our cottage faced on to the parterred gardens, full of interest in herbs, flowers and fruit. The discreet gifts of cake left in our room buoyed us up on our return from hard days exploring the many attractions of the region - Chipping Camden is a must-see and who could resist Woodstock and the expertly guided tour of historic, monumental, Blenheim Palace?"
