Great historical mansion Hummingford but a little distance from town definitely needs bus/car. But great staff and atmosphere make up for slight inconvenience

Love this quiet location away from passing car traffic, ambulance or police car siren except for the nearest pub. Newly renovated, modern, clean, tidy and next to Tesco Extra which is a Bonus for making own breakfast. About an hour drive to Oxford or 45 mins to other Cotswold location though. I would have preferred a more central location with less driving option as I was short of time.
