  • Surrounded by beautiful countryside to walk, cycle and explore
Property code: CC046

A spacious and beautiful property that’s perfect for large groups or families, Oxford is just under 20 miles away, and there are plenty of walks and attractions to keep the whole party entertained.

Rurally located, you won’t be short of things to do when staying in this spectacular part of the country. In the Vale of the White Horse, Goosey is a rambling village perfect for Oxford (18 miles), Wantage (four miles), and Didcot for the express trains to London Paddington (13 miles). Burford, often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds' is a 20-mile drive through pretty places such as Buscot and Lechlade-on-Thames, whilst the nearest pub is in the village of Denchworth, which is about a ten-minute cycle ride or a 30-minute stroll down a quiet lane. The M4 is just half an hour away, so locations such as Windsor, Bristol and the South West are all easily accessible.

The entrance hall welcomes you into this grandiose property, with rooms in every direction. There are two dedicated lounge areas, one designed for families and children, and the drawing room, with just the adults in mind. The family lounge area features a TV, books and a wood burning stove, and is an ample size if children have toys to play with, whilst the drawing room is more traditional, with elegant furnishings, a TV and an open log fire. The dining room has a large table to seat up to 12 people, and a breakfast table just around the corner to seat four; it’s the ideal space for large family dinners during your stay, spending time together and socialising. The kitchen is huge, complete with fantastic fittings and well-equipped with everything you could need, comprising of a range oven, electric oven and halogen hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. There is also a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. Four of the six bedrooms are located on the ground floor: the first room has a king-size bed and built-in wardrobes, whilst the second is the master bedroom again with king-size bed and built-in wardrobes, but also an en-suite bathroom with shower over bath and WC. Bedroom three has a single bed, and the final bedroom on the ground floor is the family room, with twin beds and a bunk bed. The bathroom downstairs has a shower , wash basin and WC. Both bedrooms upstairs have separate stairs, assuring extra privacy; bedroom five is accessed via the main staircase, and has a king-size bed and a spacious bathroom across the landing with hand held shower over bath and WC. Bedroom six is open plan, accessed via the stairs in the family lounge, and has a double bed and en-suite bathroom with hand held shower over bath and WC.

Outside, there is plenty of space in the beautiful gardens for kids to run around and play in the summerhouse or on the large lawn, and patio areas to relax in with garden furniture and a BBQ for al fresco dining. There is ample parking available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

What a lovely place to stay. The house is beautiful and very clean. Fully equipped with everything you could possible need. 2 fridges and 2 ovens was great for our large family of 11. The board games were a lovely touch we especially enjoyed Royal Bingo. The owners live very close and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend this house.
