Description

With plenty of original features, this former granary lies in a pretty village just 15 miles from Oxford and with many places of interest to visit nearby.

A rare opportunity to stay in a unique former granary to a watermill, part of which dates back to the 1600s. This apartment, with its own private entrance, has been lovingly converted into industrial-designed accommodation set over three floors, with the bedroom being in the loft. The discreet owners, who live next door, have spent time restoring and showing many of the original features including exposed brick and beams throughout. They have finished it off with lightshades from a local artisan and rustic industrial furniture to be in keeping with the property. Cuxham is pretty village just 1½ miles from Watlington, an ancient south Oxfordshire market town sitting at the foot of the Chilterns and on the edge of the Vale of Oxford. It has also been the backdrop for scenes in a few episodes of ‘Midsummer Murders’ and is a great area for birdwatchers to spot red kites. 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, Dorchester Abbey, Harcourt Arboretum, the Earth Trust Centre, the museum of the Aston Martin Heritage Trust and Wittenham Clumps for stunning panoramic views of south Oxfordshire. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    Absolutely loved our little break in the Granary. Can’t wait to go back. The Half Moon pub is a stones throw away with the nicest pizza and pasta. And the owners of the Granary catered to our every need. Would 100% recommend.

    The first impression is "wow" the Granary has been lovingly converted, preserving many historical features in a modern comfortable living area. There is nothing much in the village other than a pub which is really more an Italian restaurant than a country pub. We tried it once and found it overpriced for the quality. This was not a problem as we had picked the venue for peace and quiet and were happy stay in during the late afternoon and evenings. Unfortunately, the atmosphere was spoilt by the traffic going past the front of the Granary from 5 in the morning onwards, obviously a commuter short cut, which was only a couple of yards away from the head of the bed and the sound proofing was very poor. This was also true at the back of the property which adjoined the actual mill where the owners lived. At times we could hear them going up and down the stairs and using the toilet, as loudly as though it were in the same room as us. They also run their own outdoor catering business from their home and the smell of cooking was quite obtrusive. I would definitely not recommend the place if you are vegetarian!

    Lovely cottage with a very warm welcome, wasn’t expecting home made jam and home made scones with fresh flowers. Very cosey with a lovely view of the stream. Would definitely would recommend to friends and family.
