Aynho is a peaceful, pleasant place. A busy road going through, but it was no detriment. Good walking area along the canal and fields. Surrounded by other attractive villages. Easy for us to visit family and friends in Middleton Cheney, Claydon, Banbury with shopping in Bicester, Oxford and Banbury less than half an hour away. We felt a little thwarted because we wanted to stay longer. A shame we were on a tight schedule and didn't have time to get out there and look for pictures to paint when I got home. We saw plenty on a brief walk and the drive round. We would have been quite happy to extend our visit. Next time perhaps.
Favourite was having a clean, pleasant, well-equipped room to stay in at The Great Western Arms and to hear sounds of the countryside. Hotel was tucked outside the village next to the canal and fields so it was lovely for a walk around in the quiet.
Could have had dinner at the hotel but were visiting family. Breakfast of smoked salmon and scrambled egg was tasty and just right for preparation for a busy day. Nice variety of continental breakfast for early starters in the room, with ample tea, coffee, water and orange juice. Felt as though our things in the room were safe while we were doing other things.
