The Experience

An attractive 16th-century manor house with peaceful landscaped gardens sweeping down to the river Stour. The beamed double has oak furniture and a big bathroom; the fresh twin rooms (one in a private wing) are simply lovely. There is a large and elegant drawing and dining room for visitors to share, with antiques, contemporary art and an open fire. Jane prepares first-class breakfasts, and in warm weather you can have tea on the terrace: enjoy the pots of tulips in spring, old scented roses in summer, the meadow land beyond. A comfortable, lived-in family house with Stratford and the theatre close by. Guests love it here.

An absolutely delightful, ancient house, oozing good taste, charm and the quirkiness only a 500 year old house can provide. William and Jane are extremely relaxed and welcoming in a non-obtrusive way, generously offering use of the beautiful and extensive gardens and huge sitting room and recommending great local places for supper. They also provide an excellent breakfast in the lovely dining room after a wonderful night's tranquil sleep. What more could one ask for!

Peter, Winchester

Extraordinary beautiful house. Jane very welcoming, and William most engaging. Excellent breakfast. Accommodation lovely,lots of old beams, sloping floors etc. Would definitely use again.


We have returned home from a wonderful weekend staying at The Old Manor Halford. The property is idyllic, immaculately clean and our hosts William and Jane made every effort to help make our stay perfect. The location is ideal for exploring the many beautiful Cotswold villages, walks and pubs!

We stayed 2 nights at the old Manor House and it was just fantastic. Our host Jane welcome us with a nice afternoon tea served in the beautiful garden. The room and the bathroom are decorated with lots of taste. Quiet place and nice environment. The English breakfast was just delicious. And our host adviced us for activities and places to visit..

We stayed for 3 nights and were delighted with our stay. A beautiful room, comfy beds, delicious breakfast and a lovely garden . The house is stylish and comfortable with great attention to detail and personal touches. Jane and William are charming hosts who are very welcoming and take great care so that everything is of an extremely high standard.. We would highly recommend their lovely place.

Nick, Cornwall

Without a doubt, one of the most beautiful, relaxing, charming B&B's we've stayed in. Equally delightful hosts Jane and William who made us feel right at home. Highly recommended.


We spent a really delightful three days at "The Old Manor House". Our bedroom and bathroom were huge and so comfortable. Jane and William were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. A truly beautiful place to stay.


We stayed at the Old Manor House for two nights. It is a delightful house, full of character and beautifully furnished. William and Jane were the most charming and accommodating hosts. William greeted us on our arrival and then brought us tea and biscuits while we relaxed in their beautiful garden, in which Jane was working hard; we were lucky to visit when the roses were in full bloom. Our bedroom was very well equipped and the bed was really comfortable. The bathroom had an abundance of soaps and lotions. Breakfast on both days was delicious; do try the mushrooms with the cooked breakfast.


Brilliant hosts. The Manor House was the perfect place to retreat to after an evening at the RSC. Jane and Michael were remarkably kind hosts. Our stay was the perfect combination of being looked after, while also feeling like there was enough space to enjoy ourselves. And a wonderful breakfast thrown into the bargain. First class accommodation. I should also add that I had made special inquiries about my elderly aunt and mother who were joining the party. Jane was very, very helpful. Thanks again. I cannot recommend enough.


Firstly, what an absolutely gorgeous find....the old manor house is simply stunning. We were made to feel incredibly welcome from the moment William answered the phone and took our booking. We stayed one night with two children and booked the annexe. Perfect for a family and incredibly spacious, with all the creature comforts that expect to find at home. What a welcome with the fire roaring in the incredible drawing room, that the guests can use to unwind and relax. Beds were immensely comfortable with luxury bedlinen. Fabulous power shower and breakfast was just heavenly! Thank you.
