Shippon is a beautiful little cottage. Very comfortable. Would stay there again when covid has passed to sample some of the numerous pubs round about.

Lovely little cottage set in a farm. We stayed for 6 nights and did find that we were in need of home comforts. Lots of parking outside and around the property. We stayed there in very poor weather but it was warm and cosy for us to come back to.

Had an absolutely wonderful time, although the motorway isn't far away it doesn't spoil ones enjoyment of the village situation. We love our walking and were spoiled for choice of the many walks in and around the village (linking up with other villages). Banbury is close by and good for the shops. All round we had a great time - Anita and Darryl - Read morethe hosts - are lovely and friendly, and very accommodating, they have lovely animals too, on site and area by cottages all kept very need and tidy.

Good comfortable cottage in a rather quirky location. Perhaps a little pricey for the size.

Lovely holiday cottage just outside Banbury. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, and the owners were welcoming. The kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and bathroom are all on one level but there's a step up to the sitting room and a step down to the bedroom. It's part of a small complex on a farm which includes a camping and caravan site. We weRead morent for a stroll to the quaint Mollington village nearby. Location is excellent, top attractions are 30-45 min drive away. Hide

The cottage is situated on a working farm. It was very quiet and peaceful and a great place to explore the local area. The cottage was well equipped with all that you would need for your stay.

The area to park is directly alRead moreongside the cottage but is a gravel finish so uneven under foot. The owners were very pleasant and always available should you require anything. Hide

The location was great for us and the cottage was well-equipped and comfortable. The bedroom lacks space, so there is a bedside cabinet on one side of the bed and a small wardrobe on the other side, with no possibility to improve on that or increase storage for clothes etc. Whatever tree it is that overhangs the parking area drips spots of goo all Read moreover the cars, so park well away from there!
