Peaceful cottage in a beautiful location
A very peaceful and well-appointed cottage in a beautiful rural location in the Chilterns, but within 30mins drive of Oxford and an hour's drive from Windsor Castle, Hampton Court and the Harry Potter back-stage tour near Watford. Plenty of good restaurants and shops available locally. The friendly owners made us very welcome and we would highly recommend the cottage to future visitors.
A lovely conversion.
We were made to feel welcome. Pub welcoming as well. Very peaceful.
Thank you for your kind words. It was lovely to meet you and your friends, I'm sorry we weren't around to say goodbye. I hope the golf went well on Saturday and your friends are enjoying the canal boat - the weather has at least picked up!
Very best wishes, Jenny & Robert
Warm hospitality in a beautiful quiet part of the countryside with magnificent rolling downs and soaring red kites overhead.
Thank you for your very generous words.
We are so pleased you enjoyed yourselves.
It would be lovely to welcome you back sometime.....perhaps to escape the excess heat of Sydney! 47 degrees sounds a bit too warm!
Very best wishes,
Jenny & Robert
Peaceful and relaxing holiday
Very nice cottage in a great location. Welcoming, helpful owners . A peaceful retreat to relax for Christmas.
Hi Susie, thank you very much for your comments.
I hope your New Year will become brighter as you adjust to life without your beloved dog. We really understand your sadness.
Please come and visit us again. Jenny & Robert
Lovely accommodation in rural area
Lovely little place, very snug and cozy! Although cot and highchair are kindly provided, I really wouldn't recommend this place for an active/moving baby! (There are also no pushchair friendly walks from the cottage). The garden areas are beautiful (even out of season), however chickens are ducks are loose all day which we didn't realise when we booked. Overall, this is a great place to stay for a romantic getaway or few friends catching up but although babies and dogs are allowed, I wouldn't recommend taking them. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and we did really appreciate the milk and flowers on arrival. The guest book was filled with many happy guests too!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our cottage.
I am sorry that your stay didn't quite live up to your expectations and I will amend our description regarding your comments on pushchair friendly walks. We do already say that our ducks and chickens wander freely but perhaps we need to emphasise this point.
Thank you for your bringing these issues to our attention.
We spent a week in this cosy cottage and really loved it. The cottage is well equipped and the beds are fine. The surroundings are really amazing and the owners are most friendly.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. You brought wonderful weather with you....please come again!
Wellplace is a small hamlet near Ipsden, itself a small village, about 5 miles east of the historic market town of Wallingford. Wallingford is about 10 miles downstream of Oxford. The cottage is located in an area designated as of outstanding natural beauty. Our visitors find the cottage an ideal base for exploring the rich history in the area, and trips to London, the Cotswolds,and Shakespeare country.
