Peaceful and Relaxing Pastoral Get Away

  • 4 of 5

I made the right decision to rent here instead of in Oxford proper. It was so beautiful to sit on the porch, or even from the comfort of the couch, and listen to the breeze in the trees, watch the cows in the fields and several boats motoring up and down the Thames river. It was very, very relaxing.

All three bedrooms had their own full bath, which was very convenient. Very clean and very white! Comfy beds too.

No problem using the television. Fans were helpful as we had a heatwave while we were there. Otherwise, the windows and doors were always open.

Although it wasn't listed, there was a hair dryer tucked away in a drawer which we discovered after buying one. The iron came in handy.

We rented a car at Heathrow and had no problem finding the house after we realized we were coming from another direction than the instructions described. Also, the signs to the house are very small and hard to see, so you literally have to turn at the 30mph sign.

We drove to the Redington Park and Ride to get regular buses and a tour bus into Oxford instead of fighting traffic and looking for parking. We had several meals, and the best sticky toffee pudding ever at The Chequers Pub, just a short walk from the house. We also drove to Reading to catch the train into London for the day and successfully drove to Stonehenge as well.

A Sainsbury's grocery store was conveniently located on the way home from the Park and Ride where we purchased basic cooking supplies which were not included, i.e., oil, butter, salt and pepper.

The owner left a wonderful, freshly baked loaf of bread and bottle of white wine for our arrival.

Because there were no instructions for the stove/oven or washing machine/dryer, we had to Google operations manuals to figure them out - never got the washer/dryer to work properly, which I mentioned to the owner at the end of our stay. She offered to come over and explain it but we were scheduled to leave the next day.

I highly recommend this country retreat for those needing peace and quiet.

Very nicely presented lodge in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely presented lodge in a great location next to the river. Kitchen was well equipped and the owner was helpful and friendly. Bear in mind you'll need a car to get anywhere - train station is a massive trek and taxis are a bit patchy. But if you do, its very easy reach of Oxford if you like that sort of thing.
