The Experience

A long drive leads down to this 1770s house and racing stables – it’s all been in Paul’s family since 1956. Ku welcomes you with tea and cake and you can book a fascinating morning on the gallops with Paul so you’ll feel very much at home staying here.

Bedrooms are generous and inviting with garden views. The first floor double has a sweet child’s room adjoining; hop up more stairs to the atmospheric room in the eaves. Wake for a full English with farm shop sausages and bacon, colourful eggs from the free-range chickens, fruit, yogurt and cereals.

Read by the fire in the drawing room, walk on the grass tracks over 200 acres of farmland, sit in the pretty garden. Ku has plenty of pub recommendations – try The Kitchen at Farnborough, just three miles away, or The Red Lion in Culworth, seven miles.

A characterful family home with a lovely relaxed host. Tea and cake, inviting bedrooms, pretty gardens - and wonderful to get the chance to watch the horses on the gallops with the trainer.

Local points of interest from Ku Webber

  • Upton House and gardens are a 15 minute drive from Cropredy Lawn. They have a wonderful art collection and lovely gardens.
  • Stratford upon Avon is half an hour away, a lovely town to visit for sightseeing, shopping or going to the RSC theatre.
  • Bicester Village Outlet is 1 junction away on the M40. Here you can find many of the top designers selling at discounted prices. They also have good restaurants to have a bite to eat while you are shopping.
  • The medieval Warwick Castle with a fascinating history is nearby. It is a great place to visit and in good weather you can picnic by the river in the castle grounds.
  • Silverstone Race Circuit is 14 miles away, apart from hosting the Grand Prix they have many other events during the year.


Ku Webber

Paul grew up here; his father farmed and raced and trained horses and Paul has continued, developing Cropredy Lawn into the well-equipped 60+ yard it is today. Ku rides, gardens and has been looking after B&B guests since 2017. They enjoy having guests and giving them the chance to tour the stables and watch the horses in action.
