ADVANCE BOOKINGS:
When booking by phone or e-mail a non-refundable deposit of the cost of the first night's accommodation is required with written confirmation - please make cheques payable to Mrs. F.J. Adams.  Payment upon arrival should be by cash - cheques can only be accepted when a cheque deposit and confirmation have been received.  (This is due to the withdrawal of the cheque guarantee card).  I cannot accept debit or credit cards, but guests can book online via Eviivo using debit or credit card deposit payments - however the balance on arrival should then be paid in cash.

CAR PARKING:
There is parking for 3 cars.  A car is essential.     It should be noted that we are 3 miles from Moreton-in-Marsh and 1.5 miles from Stow-on-the-Wold, and are, therefore, not suitable accommodation for those travelling by train, or without a car.  You need to stay in Moreton-in-Marsh or Stow-on-the-Wold.

CHECK-IN time is from 4:30 pm (or earlier by telephone arrangement only). However it would be appreciated if you could give an estimated time of arrival.
When overnight bookings are made by telephone for which no deposit has been received, rooms must be claimed by 6 pm.

HOLIDAY INSURANCE:
An application form for World First Travel Insurance will be sent with our letter of confirmation, or can be taken out online.  You are responsible for full payment of cancelled accommodation.  You are strongly advised to take out insurance to cover the cost of your holiday.

DIRECTIONS:

From Stow-on-the-Wold:
Take A429 towards Moreton-in-Marsh. Ignore the first right turn to Broadwell as you leave Stow. About 1 mile further, turn RIGHT to Broadwell at the Broadwell/Donnington crossroad. Aston House is the first house on the left, half a mile from the main road.

From Chipping Norton:
Take A44 from Chipping Norton. Turn LEFT on to A436 to Stow-on-the-Wold. About 3 miles turn RIGHT to Broadwell, soon after passing the left turn to Lower Oddington. Go straight through Broadwell and through the ford - Aston House is directly ahead - but do take care crossing at the sharp left corner (look left) and crossing Kennel Lane (look right, and left!).
