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.

Charlbury Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was in a lovely, quiet location. it was very well presented with comfortable furniture and a great little garden to enjoy. It is within a short walk to a well stocked shop and very easy to get to attractions in the Cotswolds. We had a very relaxing break.

Vacances familiales Charlbury

  • 5 of 5

Ces vacances anglaises auront été formidables. Charlbury et la maison sont idéalement placés pour visiter Oxford et les Costwolds. En 2h de voiture nous étions à Londres, la saison faisait que la circulation était facile! Le train étant assez cher pour 6 personnes, nous avons préféré la voiture. Mais la proximité de la gare est un atout! Mention spéciale au Palais de Blenheim, à 10km, splendide. Les visites en Angleterre sont très chères (40£ pour une famille de 4 que le parc), mais passer à coté serait dommage. Nous conseillons aux vacanciers, la visite de Buckingham Palace qui nous a ravi. Possible de fin juillet à fin septembre, c'est un des meilleurs moment des vacances. J'y ai malheureusement perdu mon canif... trop gros (lames de plus de 3.3 inch) interdit en GB. Confisqué par Scotland Yard. J'ai tenté de demander quand et comment le récupérer.... On m'a répondu:"Never"! Snif....

La maison est pratique et très bien entretenue. Le voisinage sympathique et très accueillant. La proximité de l'église et de son discret et charmant carillon ajoute encore un peu plus l'âme anglaise à ce lieu.

Merveilleux souvenirs!

Perfect place to visit Cotswolds and Oxfordshire

  • 5 of 5

A very nice place to stay at Oxfordshire.

Charlbury is a beautiful village at Cotswolds.

Oxford is close and the marvellous Blenheim Palace in 10 minutes by car.

The house is as photos. It is very nice and it has perfect size for a family of 5 with 3 kids.

We could park about 10 meters from house.

Everything was great. We had a great time.

We would came back again.
