There we four of us and a dog, and we had plenty of space. Great base for exploring the countryside, with a few decent pub walks - would recomend The Folly on the canal at Napton on the Hill.

It is very central and within easy walking distance of restaurants and tourist attractions. It is on a main road however, so there is the inevitable noise from traffic to be aware of.
