With a secure cycle store at the cottage, bring your bikes and enjoy touring this beautiful area, including the university of Oxford.

This cosy detached, beamed 200-year-old cottage, with a delightful west facing garden with views over the Berkshire Downs, nestles in a small hamlet outside historic Abingdon and a few miles from Oxford. On the banks of the Thames, Abingdon, purported to be the oldest town in England, is steeped in history with many fine old buildings. Oxford is the city of dreaming spires famous for its university, the Bodleian Library and Inspector Morse. There is so much to do and see in the area including boat hire, walking in the Downs, cycling on the National Cycle Route or spend a day at Blenheim Palace and finally return to the peaceful cottage garden and watch the sun set over the Berkshire Downs. Golf at Frilford Heath 2 miles. Shops 2 miles, pub ¼ mile.

Beamed living/dining room with open fire and tiled floor. Compact kitchen with beam. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. First floor: Double bedroom. Twin bedroom.

    Perfect for our weekend trip to the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. A small but dainty cottage that met our needs. The TV was small and the wall heaters weren't particularly effective but wood was supplied for the open fire. We had a very pleasant stay.

    Lovely place to stay: lots of little goodies to make you feel comfortable. Very warm and cosy though the ceilings and door frames were a bit too low for us!

    We had a good time at the cottage and enjoyed especially to observe the more than 40 rabbits in the field behind the garden hedges.

    Great welcome goodies, but missing a couple of staples like sugar and pepper. Loved the garden and summer house. Stairs too steep and doorways too low for our bodies. Kitchen not friendly for working in due to limited space. Annoying water hammer present. Furniture mostly cheap/unfinished ....... drawers & doors sticky, wobbly.

    Pretty little cottage but much smaller than expected. If you're tall - I wouldn't recommend it as the ceiling heights are extremely low. The garden furniture was well in need of replacing as one of the chairs collapsed while my husband was sat on it. I emailed the owner to let them know, but had no response whatsoever. Other than that, it was clean, nicely located and quiet.

    Response from: administrator

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments which we greatly value. We replaced all four garden chairs in July as one was somewhat worn and we have since had other guest comments complementing the garden furniture. We did send a response but it appears this did not get through so apologies for this. The cottage is cosy as explained on the website but would mention it is only the living room that has a fairly low ceiling. Although the door frames are low the ceilings in all other rooms are of adequate height to accommodate taller guests.

    Excellent cottage we have stayed there at least six times and it is always lovely, with lots of little extras.

    Traditional cottage but all mod cons inside.Need to be mobile to get upstairs with the circular staircase and 2nd bedroom is very small.

    The cottage is very good and in an excellent location for days out in the area. The extras provided by the owner make all the difference.
