The cottage is absolutely beautiful; it is difficult to choose anything that can be improved on.

We enjoyed a lovely 6 days at Salamander Studio. Everything about the Studio was first class and the welcome hamper was very much appreciated. The surrounding area is beautiful and there are lots of little villages to visit within easy driving. Slightly further afield is Banbury, Stratford and Bicester outlet village. We ate at the local pub which Read morewas lovely and also in Shipston on stour. Hide
