Description

A galleried bedroom and cosy seating area make The Dovecote a romantic hideaway for two, adjacent to the Oxford Canal.


Set in a sleepy hamlet of Thrupp, the Dovecote is the ideal romantic retreat for two. This pretty little detached property is situated in the grounds of a Manor House and lies adjacent to the 18th Century Oxford Canal, offering cozy and peaceful accommodation situated in a historic hamlet. Thrupp offers many relaxing walks along the canal towpath, or along the banks of the river Cherwell, which hosts an abundant of wildlife.
Thrupp has a public house called the Boat, with its open fires and beamed ceiling. Annie’s Tea Room, situated on the other side of the canal has a selection of homemade cakes and pastries to purchase.
A short walk or along the towpath or a short drive leads to the village of Kidlington, recognised as the largest village in England, has several supermarkets, post office, banks, chemists and various pubs and cafes. There is a regular bus service to Oxford from Kidlington along with a nearby Park and Ride service. There is a bus stop available on the main road, approximately 15 minutes’ walk from the cottage.
The M40 motorway is easily reached, connecting to either London or Birmingham within an hour, traffic dependent.
The property makes and ideal holiday base to visit the famous Oxford colleges or the historic market town of Woodstock home to Blenheim Palace. Or explore the Cotswolds and Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon. Shops 2 miles, pubs ¼ mile.

    Absolutely fabulous week. We love The Dovecote and its location- just perfect for Oxford, Blenheim Palace and just staying at the cottage and watching the traffic (the narrow boats!!) go by. It was very clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Annie’s tea rooms just over the bridge are very good (especially for breakfast!) and there are some lovely walks.

    Lovely cottage. Well equipped. Very clean. Good location. The only minor improvements we can think of: Could do with a combi boiler so that hot water always on tap. Small sofa downstairs would be good.

    Not really a cottage. More like a hotel room with en suite and cooking facilities. Seating not comfortable. No separate lounge. Heating inadequate in very cold weather. I was given the wrong entry code and could not gain access. I called the phone number supplied but only able to leave a message on voice mail. Eventually someone on the farm was able to provide the correct code. Phew! Good supply of free tea, coffee ,milk & biscuits. Nice location.
