A very nice location
We have stayed here before. Now, the second time, confirmed why we have chosen Dinkley Lodge. The beadrooms with their own bathrooms were very comfortable for our group.
An Oxfordshire Gem
We recently spent 5 wonderful nights at Riverside Lodge and couldn’t fault it. We were 3 couples meeting up for a reunion and the accommodation was very spacious with the added bonus of an ensuite to every bedroom. We loved the fact that all rooms had a river view and a door leading on to the decking. The accommodation was extremely clean and very well equipped. We were very lucky with glorious bank holiday weather so we could sit outside and watch the boats float by and the cows in the fields opposite. Definitely a hidden gem in the Oxfordshire countryside, thank you Annette for letting us rent your cabin.
lovely setting -
We enjoyed our family stay the rooms were perfect for us each having an en suite worked so well. We loved the peaceful setting and the lovely views and watching the barge boats etc go by.
Breathtaking views outside and great accommodation inside
Riverside Lodge is a great place to stay. Stunning views. Peaceful surroundings. Very good standard of accommodation and well equipped. Each of the double bedrooms has an en suite. Pub within walking distance serves excellent meals. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!
Rented this wonderful cabin by the river for a calm and relaxing hen weekend and it was absolutely perfect. The bride loved it and it was so wonderfully peaceful. As a group of seven, it could have felt cramped, but this place is like a TARDIS! Each of the three bedrooms has a spacious en-suite bathroom, so great for girls getting ready for an evening out. Very convenient for venturing into Oxford (though taxis do end up a tad pricey), and has some good access to local things to do such as the Arboretum, the marina at Dorchester and it's not too far from the Crazy Bear at Stadhampton. Communication with the owner, Annette is easy and key collection and return is simple. Big thumbs up!
