When I arrived in the lovely village of Asthall, the view was very scenic and enticing. The fresh air and sun setting for golden hour was a great start to an enjoyable night. I managed to explore fully that evening by walking down by the river Windrush which flows through the countryside. This beautiful landscape reminded me so much of North Yorkshire moors!
When I arrived I was shown to the ”Hunting room” and given some fresh milk in a cute bottle to make hot drinks.
The ‘Hunting Room’ is one of the six en-suite bedrooms that the Maytime Inn has. As soon as I entered the room I was greeted with a stag’s head which gave a very warm country feel. The interior was very homely consisting of browns, neutrals and wooden furniture. Complete with luxurious Egyptian cotton linen, the beds were super comfy.
Each room has a HD TV, ipod docking station and HDMI connections for a cosy movie night in.
The room had a luxurious ensuite full of cowshed products which are some of my favourite. If you love it that much you could ask to buy the full bottles to take with you which was great!
The peaceful location made for a great nights sleep.
In the morning a buffet style breakfast with cereal, croissants, other pastries and orange juice were prepared on a table for us. I went for the eggs Benedict and my friend went for eggs, meat and homegrown tomatoes. It was all very delicious and a great bonus having breakfast included with the overnight stay package.
To end the stay off nicely, we visited Blenheim Palace which is one of the ‘must visit’ tourist attractions around the Oxford area.
I would definitely recommend staying here!
