This time last week we were at a wedding on Oxford. We stayed at the @themarlborougharms in Woodstock, Oxfordshire. The room was huge and our bed the same. Great boutique B&B , our stay was lovely, breakfast delicious and service was most accommodating. #throwback #marlborougharms #themarlborougharms #travel #luxurytravel #lifestyle #weekendwedding #oxfordshire #oxford #bed #superkingbed #lifestyleblogger #notjustyoga #luxurylife #travellifestyle #bedandbreakfast #woodstock
