What our guests say
“Debra was an excellent host and provided us with lots of recommendations on places to visit and pubs to eat in. I was made very comfortable during my short stay. The bed is huge and very comfortable.”
“We had a wonderful stay at Lavender Lodge . The accommodation is exactly as appears in the photographs. Deddington market and local village pubs are well worth a visit. Thanks to our host Debra for making our stay so enjoyable.”
“I stayed at Lavender Lodge as my friends were getting married at nearby Aynhoe Park – literally 5 minutes away. Excellent hosts, perfect location. Debra’s husband even ran me up to the venue in his car to save me calling a taxi.”
