Property code: CC001

One of five well-ordered, three-bedroom lodges in idyllic setting on the banks of the River Cherwell. Sleeping six guests, it’s the perfect family getaway.

The world-famous city of Oxford with its university dates to 1188 and produced some of the planet’s greatest minds. Visitor attractions include many of the city’s beautiful buildings such as The Bodleian Library, The Sheldonian Theatre and The Ashmolean Museum, all of which are incredible. The views across the rooftops from Carfax Tower or the church tower of St Mary the Virgin are well worth the hundreds of stairs you need to climb! Don’t forget the camera. Take a trip along the river from Folly Bridge to pretty Iffley Lock; walk through Christchurch Meadows or jump on a ‘hop on hop off’ open top bus. There are hundreds of places of interest to experience when you stay at one of our Oxfordshire holiday cottages, set within 4-acres of riverside grounds at the very edge of Oxford City giving you that rural feeling.

On arrival at the property, through a spacious entrance hall, guests can find a large open plan living area. The lounge/kitchen/diner looks out over a large lawn area and a comfortable veranda. The lounge area has comfortable seating and TV/DVD to unwind in front of at the end of the day. On the other side of the living space is a dining area with a table for six diners. The kitchen comes equipped with an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, hi-fi and fridge/freezer. There is a  utility room for those that wish to make use of washing machine and separate tumble dryer. The three bedrooms include two doubles, one of which contains a queen-size bed and access to an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. The third bedroom is a twin. Nearby is the main bathroom with a shower over bath and WC.

Outside the lodge is a shared lawn and access to four acres of riverside gardens. Full of bird life and wildlife it’s a quiet spot to kick back and relax, reflect on the day’s exploration or making plans for the rest of the stay in Oxford. There is also ample parking nearby. Some lodges in the complex have riverside views, while each has a private garden area with furniture and a BBQ, and access to the riverside gardens which are set behind a private gated entrance. A punt or fishing can be arranged in advance (please enquire), as well as weekly cleaning, secretarial, and an advance grocery services order.

Was perfect for what we wanted for 4 adults and a 10 month old. Plenty of space and great surrounding area my husband was able to have a fish at the river. The owners were lovely and very accommodating to anything we needed.

Lovely unique little lodge, well laid out and cosy. Be prepared for the amazing peacock that wanders around outside the lodges, he was amazing and the children loved him. Location was perfect for all Oxfordshire amenities, attractions. The owners live on site and very helpful and welcoming.

We booked the lodge as a last minute break away after our other holiday had been cancelled. We were not disappointed! What a cozy, peaceful and relaxing place to stay. The owners are delightful and the accommodation was everything we could have wished for. Home from home comforts. Will definitely be back!

1 The Lodge is one of 5 substantial chalets, the only one with river frontage. The owners house is on site but they were unobtrusive. The Muscovy ducks, Canada geese and peacock made an attractive garden outlook but their deposits render it unusable for childrens play. The chalet is large, comfortable and mostly well furnished and equipped. LocatedRead more directly on busy, noisy dual carriageway. Crossing it is risky. Large municipal park nearby was useful for exercise and kids play. Hide

The lodge was lovely (Lodge 2) and had lots of space for our group of 5. We didnt find the double bed in the second bedroom very comfortable for 2 adults sadly. We loved the veranda and our visits from the resident peacock. Another bonus was the fact we could open the windows really wide to get air in (it was a hot week!). We had worried about roadRead more noise but found it wasnt intrusive at all. Hide
