  • "We had the best week at Wayland's, they literally thought of everything we would need including tea, coffee, milk and prosecco!"

    The place was beautiful and the little touches made it a perfect place to stay. The views of the hills and the horses were stunning. On arrival we bumped into the owner and she was so lovely and welcoming. Thank you for having us and we can't wait to come back

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback it means so much. Thanks Johnny and the team Property Owner

  • "A really lovely place to stay for a few nights, thrilled to have got it over the NYE weekend."

    Only note - the toilet seat is too small for the toilet!

    Thank you for your kind words regarding the place to stay,I don’t understand the comment regarding the toilet seat as it’s a standard size seat which comes with that standard size toilet and fits perfectly.Had no comments regarding it before from the many guests. Many thanks from Johnny and the team. Property Owner

  • "What a wonderful find Waylands was."

    I booked very last minute for a couple of nights peace and quiet with my dog and I wasn't disappointed. I was greeted by the owner when I arrived who was very friendly and helpful. The place itself was amazing, a beautiful view over the fields and hills and the White Horse of Uffington in the distance. There was lots of space for my dog to roam but its not enclosed, I took a lead hook to stop him disappearing. Inside Waylands, it was spotless and so well set up. It had everything I needed, salt, pepper, even a garlic press!. There was a bottle or prosecco in the fridge and a bottle of milk which was a lovely touch. There were toiletries laid out in the bathroom as well. The sleeping area was so cosy and really comfortable. It was Idyllic and really quiet, its also very dark, not light pollution so great for star gazing but lots of outdoor lighting to use with lots of seating. Another bonus is that its not totally isolated, the village shop is just round the corner as is the local pub and lots to do locally. It also has very strong 4G if you dont want to be totally off grid. Thank you for a wonderful stay

    Thank you so much for your positive and kind comments it means a lot to us,and we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us .Hopefully we may see you again in the future. Thanks Johnny and the team. Property Owner

    Waylands was situated in a private and peaceful position on the owners land and we were blessed with gorgeous sunshine too. Jonathan and family were extremely friendly and happy to help in any way. Perfect place for exploring the sights of Oxfordshire and we hope to return very soon. Fabulous holiday. .
