Very comfortable cottage, well equipped for self catering. Gas stove made the cottage cosy. Lovely friendly local pub which served good food only a short walk away. Small coop shop also only short walk away catered for most needs. Quiet setting with plenty of places to go for walks and visiting the Cotswolds.

We stayed in Old School House with two granddaughters aged 10 and 7 and we all had a great time. We made full use of the local Co-op, ate our meals in the garden except on three evenings when we enjoyed the pleasant walk to The Hare and made lots of interesting, enjoyable and educational visits locally. An excellent holiday.

Lovely cottage in a good location. The kitchen was well equipped which made preparing meals when eating in easy. The property was clean and well presented. It is a small property but perfectly comfortable for a family of 5 for the week. The location is great with lovely walks and beautiful villages easy to get to as well as Oxford and Blenheim.
