In its rural location, it’s still within easy reach of the market town of Charlbury. The town has four good pubs and a selection of interesting shops. The main line station offers a regular service between Oxford and London, or between Malvern and Worcester. A regular bus services runs to Woodstock, and you could also visit Blenheim Palace, one of the area’s top attractions.

Close by is the lounge; this spacious communal area has ample comfortable seating, a TV/DVD, iPod dock, and a hi-fi. Central to the space is a wood burner that comes with a basket of logs. The kitchen/dining room comes equipped with an electric oven and hob, a washing machine, a tumble dryer, a dishwasher, and a fridge/freezer.

The property was homely and was nice to have a Christmas tree decorated which made it very inviting and also the table made it very Christmas like the cottage was comfortable and warm.

Upstairs headroom is not great so double bedroom and bath were a bit difficult to use but, this did not detract from a really comfy stay. We were 3 adults so we had 1 adult only upstairs.

We found the upstairs very small, kept banging heads especially trying to have a bath! We managed but had we had a fourth adult it would have been a problem!
