Stayed here with two other friends and we shared a room. Stunningly beautiful room, lots of space and gorgeous huge bathroom (a must for three girls). Absolutely yummy breakfast and owner is just so sweet and nice. Most beautiful B&B room I've stayed in. Strongly recommend.

We stayed for a week and it didn't feel a moment too long. We started with a wedding in a village a couple of miles away and Anne-Marie went miles beyond the call of duty in not only taking us early afternoon but also insisted on collecting us when we had had enough of the disco at about 10.45 at...

We only stayed 1 night but it was perfectly charming. A beautiful old building crammed full of amazing antique furniture and delightful spacious rooms. Anne-Marie and Allan were very warm and welcoming hosts, even looking after our newborn while we ate the delicious breakfast! We would definitely return. Great for a stopover or to explore the Cotswolds.

We stayed one night at the Old Bear and loved every minute. We were welcomed most warmly by Ane-Marie and Alan and shown to our beautiful room which was huge and wonderfully decorated with a separate dressing room and a separate bathroom ensuite. It had a comfy sofa and chair in the room, a TV and the room was full...

We stayed here for one night with our two small poodles after researching dog friendly B&B's in the area. We were made to feel very welcome including our doggies. Anne Marie also recommended a local dog friendly pub for a nice meal and even nicer wine. Our room was lovely and spacious and has everything you need, the bed was...

Stayed at this B&B run by Mrs Anne Marie Hare. She is your perfect host. Easy booking and when we arrived she was there to welcome us and show us our room which was beautiful and large filled with antiques. She made us super English breakfast which was an English fry up teamed with home baked bread, fruits, cereals, jams,...

You enter through a treasure-trove of antiques, then ascend to a landing with lovely furniture - a wooden armchair caught my eye. The house itself is an antique too, with a few creaky boards adding to the atmosphere. The room I stayed in is sumptuous in decoration and down-stated luxury. A couple of comfy armchairs, a settee and a glorious...

We spent the last 3 nights of our south England tour with Anne-Marie and Allan. Since we had a long and busy(but pleasant) trip, we very much enjoyed the homey feel of the place. The room we had, was huge, had a separate closet area and a nice bathroom. More like a 5* Suite, filled up with lovely antiques. Just...

Within easy reach of Cirencester (on the main road but traffic noise not a problem). Large and comfortable bedroom, beautifully furnished with dressing room, seating area and big bathroom. As Alan describes their rooms "posh" - yes he is right, but still homely and one is able to relax on the sofa, whilst choosing from the range of refreshments in...
