I live here with my husband, two teenage children and our little labrador. I lead a busy life looking after the family, our garden as well as welcoming our guests.
Lovely host and super venue. Wish that I had been able to stay longer to enjoy the area.
Our visit to Katie's place in the Chilterns was the perfect end to our 4 week holiday in the UK. There is plenty of room to relax, repack, watch the birds, the sheep and all the lovely flowers and trees. Katie introduced us to the apartment which has two big living areas and a big bathroom with spacious shower room. Cereals, a loaf of bread, croissants, quality orange juice, yoghurt, butter and spreads were all provided. There are two full sized TVs, couches, table and chairs for meals, a microwave and refrigerator and the accommodation is quite separate and very private. The bed is very comfortable!! There are many local pubs but we liked 'the Bull and the Butcher' and 'The Grouse' the best. Thank you Katie! We left the UK feeling very relaxed and prepared for our journey home.
We had a lovely stay at Katie's B and B. Not sure why it is called "Hell's corner" as the place is a little slice of heaven. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and we felt very private with access to the lovely garden and surrounds. The property is a pretty,historic building and we thoroughly enjoyed staying here.
This was the ideal place for us to stay (and recover from ) a nearby wedding! The accommodation was beautiful and the little sitting room was a lovely addition. Breakfast was thoughtful and delicious.
Kate was flexible and helpful with arrival and departure times which meant our trip was stress free and relaxing. It was a great alternative to a pub B&B and we will recommend it to our friends in the area. Many thanks
The Chilterns is a very special place and our stay at The Hintons made it more so. Katie and Mark were really welcoming, hospitable and a fount of knowledge about the area. The delightful house is in a beautiful setting and its calm and peaceful atmosphere complete with amazing wildlife made our short holiday perfect.
Katie made us feel very welcome and the room was beautifully prepared for our arrival. Thank you!
We had a lovely night away. A beautiful property and a short drive from the motorway. On arrival we received a friendly greeting from mark together with an offer of help with our luggage. After a long day it was just what we needed quiet and relaxing lovely to have more than just one room to move about in. Everything we needed was to hand. Thank you both.
Katie's place is a very nice spacious house (with fresh! flowers in the hall) in the country. We did some great walks (10-15 km) in the beautiful Chiltern hills just in front of her place. Katie gave also a good hint for visiting Oxford and a nice restaurant in the neighbourhood. Katie is really very nice and made you feel home in her place. Thanks Katie for your great English breakfast! Great hospitality thank you!
I highly recommend The Hintons' cottage for your country stay. Every morning we awoke to beautiful serene views and the sounds of nature. This is the perfect get away location and centrally located to all the sites. While there we visited Blenheim Palace, Oxford, Highclere Castle, and the Cotswolds. My husband and I enjoyed returning to our little cottage in the evening. Katie and her family are lovely hosts, very accommodating and willing to assist with directions while also sharing suggestions for things to do in the area. We will only stay here in the future. It truly was the highlight of our time in England!
The Hintons is a gem in the English countryside. It is less than an hour from London on the way to Oxford. We chose this B&B based upon its close proximity to Garsington Opera. Coming from the USA, this cottage is what every American envisions as the classic English cottage! Half timbers, quaint decor, comfortable bed, plus an American-sized shower! Impeccably clean and Katie was a friendly host. I highly recommend.
Katie Hinton is an extremely good hostess ! She is very skilled at anticipating other people's needs,a very good home cook and I think will make a wonderful airbnb member . The farmhouse is set in beautiful grounds , quiet and peaceful overlooking a wooded valley with a high chance of seeing red kites , wild deer and owls at dusk. I thoroughly recommend the accommodation, private from the rest of the house and decorated in a tasteful manner . You always leave feeling rested and having had a special treat.
Katie is a very warm and friendly person. We have been friends for over 30 years.
My family has stayed at her lovely home many times, it's very comfortable, fresh and has a lovely feel about the place. She can recommend great places to visit locally and several places which serve good local food.
This is definitely a B&B to try.
I have known Katie for over 20 years and can vouch for her 100%! She is a wonderful hostess and runs a beautiful and very comfortable home. I have stayed many times - the guest wing of the house is private and spacious. The B&B is situated in such a lovely area which has fabulous walks and country pubs for great weekends away. I also often stay when working in Oxford or London and love coming back to a warm welcome and the peace of the Chiltern hills. Great breakfasts too!
