About Mary Bentley

My husband, children and I moved to this area from London 14 years ago. Herrieff's Cottage is an old coach house which was part of Herrieff's Farm. The farm is no longer a working farm but we live at the farmhouse which is located on the other side of the gate. We pride ourselves on offering personal service to all our guests and are always nearby to offer help or assistance, if needed! We look forward to welcoming you to Herrieff's Cottage and please contact us if you have any queries.

Mary Bentley purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Mary Bentley chose North Newington

We moved here from London primarily because our eldest child was due to start school and the time to move would never be easy after that. This is a great location with ease of access to the M40 which gets us to London in an hour and connects us with friends and family all over the country. We enjoy the peace and quiet of village life. We are surrounded by public footpaths and can walk for miles with the children and the dogs!

Excellent cottage in a delightful village

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent cottage with three large well equiped rooms in a small village. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Access to the Cotswolds and Blenheim Palace. An excellent friendly pub in the lovely nearby village of Shutford - it's worth a walk around Shutford. We loved it.

Cozy cottage in small village

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a very convenient place to stay while visiting friends and family in Banbury. It was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. They even provided us with a Christmas tree. The lounge was very spacious. Our only concern was since pets were allowed, we had to vacuum dog hair from around the house.
