Gadbury Cottage was wonderful. It was sparkling clean, in a beautiful setting and we had all that we needed. The beds were very comfortable with plenty of closet space to hang up all my squished suitcase clothes. I went with my teenage son and he loved having his own room ( although it was tough getting him up and out in the mornings- too comfy) We had a friend over for dinner, there were plenty of channels on the television to view while I relaxed after a long day visiting London or Oxford. A very close and safe walk to the buses that could take you wherever you needed.
The town of Wheatley was great to walk around in and was a quiet respite after the busyness of the city centers. We ate at a delicious café, shopped in the store that also housed the post office and had dinner at the pub (also walking distance). We went to Oxford in February so we didn't use the courtyard but we would have, weather permitting! I wish I could have packed the cottage in my bags to bring home :)
We stayed here because it is within walking distance to family in the area. We were pleasantly surprised to find the cottage and the location exceeded our expectations. The cottage was clean and well appointed and the location with the deck overlooking the lake was perfect. Even though the campground was very busy everyone we respectful and never seemed noisy. There are pleasant shady walking paths around the lake and in the area. I hope we can stay here again when we return to the UK!
