Beautiful spot for adults and children. Amazing sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting with so much room for three lively boys. So quiet. Walked to the local pub, The Chequers, for lunch, great food and service. Had a takeaway Indian meal from The Vine and Spice, best we have ever had. Well equipped kitchen does mean you can cook for yourselves too!

Fab bath towels, large, white and fluffy. Lots of hot water and great heating system, fine for a stay in winter.

Really hope to be back very soon. Thank you.

Perfect location and accomodation for our annual girls get together

  • 5 of 5

Property had everything we needed and didn't need for that matter. Lovely rooms, very comfortable, and thought the bread and wine left as a welcome was a really nice touch. Great walks around the area. Loved it, thank you

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

4 of us stayed here for a joint 50th Birthday treat, and what a treat it was.

From the start to finish we enjoyed every moment of our stay. We arrived to homemade bread and a bottle of wine, chose our bedrooms, unpacked and the weekend began. The bedrooms are spacious well equipped, and the beds comfortable. One hair dryer supplied. The layout of the bedrooms would suit two family's with two rooms next to each other , and one across from the living accommodation.

We had ordered a food delivery from Tesco, which arrived on time, put the champagne on ice and sat on the beautiful veranda and watched the boats chug up the river.

The main room accommodation has everything you need, although we couldn't find the I pod docker, but put the radio on that's on the TV as back ground music.

The kitchen is fully equipped, including t towels, washing liquid and sponges.

There is also cleaning solutions to keep the showerooms fresh, not found in many holiday lets.

We ate at the Chequers pub ( recommended) just up the road 3 times, as it's a 5 min walk, and the food and service are second to none, but cooked all our breakfasts in the lodge. We even managed to enjoy a BBQ on our first night.

There is constant hot water, and the heating works well, we had to turn it off as the lodge warmed up really quickly, and we were lucky to have mild weather.

Oxford park and ride is really easy to drive to, and just a short bus ride into the middle of Oxford a must visit trip.

Wildlife is in abundance, rabbits, Kites, one deer and squirrel all came to have a nosy at us.

The sunsets at night are worthy of photos, as are the views. Would love to come back soon.

Extremely Comfortable Lodge in a Beautiful, Peaceful Location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this wonderful property extremely tired and by the end of our week felt completely refreshed. The tranquillity of the riverside location, the wildlife, the beautiful trees, the occasional boat passing by, the safety of the enclosed garden and the wendy house for children makes this a very relaxing place for families to stay. All bedrooms are ensuite and have very comfortable beds which is perfect. There is plenty of parking immediately outside the property. The fridge freezer is a good size for the number of people the property accommodates. There is masses to do in the area. We visited Oxford, Blenheim Palace Flower Show, Butterfly House and Gardens, the children's water sprinkler play area at Wallingford, the Abbey at Dorchester and took a boat out on the river at Abingdon. We enjoyed sitting by our own private stretch of river and watching the woodpeckers, red kites, herons, squirrels, thrushes, the cows coming to drink from the river on the opposite bank and fish jumping. It was enchanting. Our family party ranged from age 60 to 2 years and we all loved our holiday. This is our second visit to this wonderful property and we would love to stay there again.

Just a few pointers for things to do in the local area:

For places to eat out have a look at The Chequers which is within walking distance Any bookings over 12 receive a free bottle of Prosecco, red or white. There is also The White Hart at Dorchester the Crazy Bear (very trendy) 3 miles by car, the George and the Fleur dy Lys at Dorchester on Thames, 15 min walk max.
