The Coach House is a spacious, detached barn conversion that has been thoughtfully designed and beautifully finished to give guests a fantastic stay. The Coach House, located in the pretty village of Cuxham, has kept many original features including exposed beams, exposed stone, brickwork and lovely windows. The open plan living, kitchen and dining area is very sociable and spacious. French doors lead onto the south west facing enclosed garden complete with flower beds, a patio and a good-sized lawn boasting beautiful views of Oxfordshire. This is a perfect getaway for all the family, including the dog, friends and couples wanting a relaxing stay, a sightseeing break or a walking and cycling holiday in a stunning part of Oxfordshire. The Coach House is situated on a working farm where they rear cattle and grow crops, with the friendly owners living in the farmhouse adjacent to the property. The owners occasionally host events on the farm including a Christmas market and shoots. The farmhouse has even featured in episodes of Midsomer Murders, along with the nearby ancient south Oxfordshire market town of Watlington.
The town of Watlington, which sits at the foot of the Chilterns, is steeped in history and offers many independent delicatessens and shops. The Chiltern countryside is waiting to be explored by foot or bike where you will be treated to magnificent views of the Thames Valley and South Oxfordshire. Approximately 1½ miles from Watlington is Watlington Hill, a National Trust chalk grassland site which is a fantastic area to spot red kites and butterflies including the silver-spotted skipper. For more wildlife watching, the Aston Rowant Nature Reserve is close by. For railway enthusiasts, take a visit to the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway, a 3½ mile stretch at the foot of the Chiltern Hills where steam and diesel-hauled trains operate.
There are many other nearby towns to visit including Dorchester, a pretty village with an abbey, Thame, a typical English market town, Wallingford, home of Agatha Christie, and Henley-on-Thames, a 12th-century market town made internationally famous for its rowing regatta. The historic university city of Oxford is within 15 miles. There is plenty more to do and see in the area including Greys Court (National Trust), Nuffield Place, Basildon Park, Harcourt Arboretum, the Earth Trust Centre, the Aston Martin Heritage Trust Museum and Wittenham Clumps, for stunning panoramic views of south Oxfordshire. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 550 yards.

I'm sure the cottage was larger inside than out. Lovely views across the farm. Very good local pub with pizzas and pasta dishes. Good beer too. Handy for various walks in the Chilterns and on the Ridgeway. Pleasant, friendly and helpful owner.

The coach house is a wonderful place to stay. Looking out each day to fields and animals was a delight, the immaculate cottage was a credit to the owner, they have got it right. Who ever stays here in the future is in for a treat. Friendly people in the local restaurants and pubs, the shepherds hut a few miles away is a must for excellent food. In the cottage was a tasty welcome pack, “very nice” plenty of comfortable seating in the lounge area. All in all this was one of the best cottages we have stayed in for a long time, believe me when I say I pay my money and expect excellence, for sure we received it. We will be back.
