Lovely period cottage, beautifully up together with everything you could need

  • 4 of 5

Thanks to Ros for her lovely property. We had a fantatsic few days and the cottage gave us a great base to go out and visit local attractions, but also a great space just to chill and spend time as a family. The cottage had everything we could have needed including loads of DVDs, books and games. The accommodation was great and it was lovely to spend the evenings holed up with the fire and a nice glass of wine. It was good to be able to get out to visit some of the things to do locally and we had a great meal in the pub in the village.

The kids have already asked when we can gp back again as they loved sitting in the window seats with their books and looking out across the fields.

Excruciatingly beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing cottage in a beautiful corner of a really nice Cotswold village. AND the cottage was thoroughly comfortable as well. Lovely scenery all around us and plenty of good walks. Being winter we avoided the traditional muddy fields by doing most of our walks in Blenheim park. But we did not ignore the pubs!

Oh what a beautiful cosy cottage. Location was so easy to find and all the Cotswold towns and bleinham palace was within 10 to 15 minutes drive which was perfect. It was brilliant for chilling out, resting and relaxing . Will definitely be returning and ros the owner was an absolute delight to know.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay - Bakehouse is very cosy and comfortable and maintained to a high standard. Ros is the perfect host - nothing was too much trouble. We loved the wood burning stove in the evenings.

Parking to the side is accessed off a narrow lane which can be a little tricky for a large car. We found reversing in to be the easiest solution.

Cottage had everything we needed and even more

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely, cosy and very clean cottage, which had everything we needed.

Rosamund is a fantastic host, who made us feel very welcome. There were Scones, cream, jam and milk when we arrived at the cottage. Arriving late in the evening on a Friday night, she was so kind to phone the nearby pub to make sure we would get something to eat before going to sleep.

The Cottage is a great location for exploring the Cotswolds and Oxford. But it is also a great place to just relax.

Very cozy house!

  • 4 of 5

The old bakehouse is a very cozy place with lots of character. The kitchen is small but well enough equiped to cook a simple meal and close enough to the pub to go for a nice pub meal. Recommended for people who prefer character over modern comfort. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again!
