The Sum­mer­house Bed & Breakfast

Edwar­dian Sum­mer­house over­look­ing water and rose gar­dens. Sump­tu­ous rooms, sun­ny ter­race for drinks, and charm­ing hosts who will look after you well 

Jaco­bian Ship­ton Court has been care­ful­ly pre­served by the Arathon fam­i­ly — flats cre­at­ed, out­build­ings restored, gar­dens kept. You stay in Mar­tin and Paul’s Sum­mer­house — splen­did with antiques and chi­na galore. Bed­rooms (one ground floor) have well dressed beds and immac­u­late show­er rooms; step through Nar­nia’ door (clev­er­ly reclaimed old linen press) into the huge sec­ond dou­ble. Mar­tin rus­tles up a gen­er­ous break­fast and the view from your table is a treat: a 60ft pond with ducks dart­ing between the lilies. Blenheim and Oxford both an easy dri­ve; drinks by the fire in the rich­ly fur­nished draw­ing room on the return.
