The lounge features comfortable soft furnishings, including a sofa bed, and a TV/DVD, the ideal space for relaxing in and watching a film after a long day of exploring. The dining table is large enough to seat up to six people, so if you decide to whip up a home-cooked meal whilst away there’s plenty of room to enjoy it together. The kitchen itself is well-equipped with everything you could need, with beautiful worktops and fitted units which make cooking feel anything but a chore ; comprising of an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine, it’s a stunning space to spend time in.

We spent ~ 3 weeks in Red Kite Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The location is ideal; nicely secluded but easy to get into Thame or Oxford whenever you want. From the moment we arrived Georgina and her family couldnt have been more kind and helpful. The cottage itself is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly needRead more to enjoy your stay. Thank you again for such an enjoyable 3 weeks and really making us feel at home.
