Wayside House


Occupy your own quarters in the pretty country garden, in very peaceful surroundings, at Wayside House in Whichford, a welcoming B&B overlooking the village Green close to the idyllic market town of Chipping Norton situated in stunning North Cotswolds. Stretch out in your double or twin bedroom with modern and spacious en-suite, found in the self-contained 'Outback' away from the main house. Take your time and relax on the big comfy sofa in the cosy guest lounge in front of the digital TV after long bike rides around the delightful country paths or trips to Whichford Pottery and famous nearby gardens at Hidcote and Kiftsgate. Take traditional farmhouse breakfasts in the Aga-warmed kitchen dominated by a sturdy table laden with pots of jam with pretty decorative china. Dogs are welcome; there are wonderful walks surrounding the village.

Thoroughly recommended. Wayside House is all you would want (and more) from a Cotswold country B&B. Whichford itself is a beautiful village with a green, plenty of walks, a pub and it is the home of Whichford Pottery where you can watch potters at work, purchase frost proof garden pottery or bro...

Mary kindly booked a table for evening meals at the local pub. The bedroom was extremely quiet, which along with the comfy bed, en...

Lovely spacious accommodation. Mary made us very welcome. Location is quiet but within easy reach of Cotswold villages and attractions. Excellent pub in the village. A very comfortable stay, we particularly liked the self-contained nature of the accommodation. Highly recommended.
