Thames View is a lovely little cottage, in a quiet and secluded location. It is spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Although the main purpose of our stay was to visit nearby family, we also found several lovely places to visit nearby (Buscott Park is particularly good) and we enjoyed relaxing at the cottage too.

This cottage is very nice, all the equipment at the cottage is very good. When we arrived we had a very nice welcome pack in the kitchen for us. It was very easy to access everything at the cottage. We did struggle to get the hot water working, but we messaged the owner and she came straight away to help us, turned out that we had turned on the hotRead more water so just needed to give it time to work. But the owner was very helpful and came straight away to help us. We really enjoyed our stay here! Hide

We really enjoyed our holiday at Thames View. The cottage is located off a country road, close to the villages of Aston and Bampton and small town of Witney, all of which are well worth a visit. We found everything we needed in the cottage for a relaxing stay in the Cotswolds. Thanks for the fresh flowers too!

The bathroom could do with a refurb. The 'Garden Furniture' which consisted of two very weather worn benches and similar table left a lot to be desired.

windows very dirty inside and outside.The glass holder in bathroom damaged ,unable to use.Bedroom drawer knob came away in hand requires refix.Wardrobe doors not close and no handle on one.In general it requires some TLC to be given to the property to bring it up to the expected standard of a 4 star property.

We were pleasantly surprised by how lovely the property was, really clean and well equipped. The setting was incredible. Christine was so helpful too. We really enjoyed using the accommodation as a fantastic base to explore the surrounding Oxfordshire countryside and beyond. Lovely. Just one thing, if you love military planes, there's a rather largRead moree plane doing what appears to be training flights, interesting, but noisy. On the whole I firmly recommend. Hide
