This property is in a great location,well appointed and very welcoming.

I found it clean and comfortable, area was quiet and I loved the back yard, spent a lot of time there.

Instructions were clear and easy to follow, much appreciated as I found

things different than what we have in Canada eg. washing machine.

Would go back any time.

Good house in a nice location - shame it wasn't very clean

  • 3 of 5

I stayed at this house over the Easter weekend with my family. We had a lovely break, we loved the village and the local area and generally the house was nice. It was a good size for us, it had clearly been fairly recently updated, and we received very thorough and useful info in advance. Unfortunately the one big negative was that we found it to not be very clean at all. We were aware that the owner had been away and therefore it wouldn't have been cleaned immediately prior to our arrival, but we felt none of it had been properly cleaned for a while and simply wasn't up to the standard we would expect from a holiday let. We started our weekend break dusting, hoovering and washing crockery. It was a shame as it would prevent me from recommending it, and apart from that it would be a really pleasant place to spend a few days.

Lovely welcoming house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The house is well equipped and welcoming. Very much a home away from home.

I,would recommend either some larger throws or stretch covers for,the couches as the current white throws do not stay on. Other than that we enjoyed the house and our stay

Excellent weekend away

  • 4 of 5

Just wanted to say a big thank you for letting us stay in your cottage this weekend. We had such a wonderful time and despite the wet weather we still went on some lovely walks around Charlbury and the Cotswolds. Everyone commented on how wonderful your house was and how pretty the village was.

Thank you for the house manual and the walking maps, both came in very useful!

We will definitely visit your cottage again in the near future.

Thank you.

Family of 4. 5 night stay, October 2015

  • 4 of 5

This house is ideally situated for exploring the eastern Cotswolds. It is clean and well looked after. Everything works ! Excellent heating and hot water system - very easy to operate and control. Good Wi-Fi connection. We were a couple with 2 children aged 14 and 4 and it suited our needs well. Charlbury is very quiet and laid back and the cottage was quiet and peaceful despite being in a modern compound of several other neighbouring houses. Only a short walk from the mainline railway station and, for us, so convenient to Blenheim Palace, Burford and Oxford. The only consideration which stops it being a 5 star in our opinion is the fact that it doesn't have its own dedicated parking space. You have to park in nearby Church Lane, if space available, or a few minutes away in Market Street. However you can still drive up to the house for loading/unloading and the parking wasn't an issue for us and certainly didn't detract from a delightful and restful stay. We regularly stay in quality holiday homes and would happily recommend this house.
