  • Really great stay the Rectory Retreat, it was the cutest cosiest place we have ever stayed! Loved it and didn’t want to leave- Winnie the dog had the best time too! Thank you for everything!

    Lauren2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Shepard’s hut was perfect for a quick weekend away. The hot tub was definitely the highlight, even in the rain. Cabin warms up very quickly after lighting the log burner. Bring flip flops/sliders for getting to and from the hot tub and toilet. Plough across the road do great food too. Thanks again!

    Ben2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely one night stay here and the hot tub was great, the cooking facilities were perfect and the fairy lights were a great touch! Great communication, would defiantly recommend.

    Bethanie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • I would 100% recommend this place, and even come back again! Myself and 3 friends came to the Rectory Retreat as a get away for my birthday and as a general get away from the city. It was far beyond what we expected and loved every minute. From the moment we got there, Lisa had everything ready for us. She gave us a tour and explained how everything worked. They’re avid recyclers too!! Which was a plus. The hot tub is with an extra cost but split between myself and friends it was virtually nothing. Can’t thank Lisa and Jeremy enough for an amazing place to stay.

    Rachel2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a brilliant stay! The cabin exceeded our expectations, the hot tub was gorgeous and we were well looked after. Lisa offered to get the hot tub going for us with wood fire as it takes a couple of hours to get going - perfect for the return from our long walk! It was very comfortable, romantic and cosy. Also, the Plough Inn was great for food and Blenheim Taxis were brilliant if you need a ride!

    Tina2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing host, so helpful. Beautiful tranquil space. Perfect for relaxing in the hot tub with a glass of something!

    Adele2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, exactly as described. A nice place to really disconnect. Stars are beautiful at night and the hot tub is a must have!

  • This one place was perfect for us. So welcoming, a real remote hideaway, warm and cosy. We will definitely be back and the hot tub is really worth splashing out on!

    Carly2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Met by Lisa, who was super nice and explained how everything worked. The hideaway was so cozy and secluded. The hot tub under the stars was amazing as was the log burner and all the fairy lights. This is an unmissable place, truly unique and amazing. Thank you so much

    Johan2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing. Would definitely recommend and would definitely come back! Couldn’t get better.

    Thomas2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed here at the end of February, even though the weather wasn’t ideal (there was a storm this weekend!) we still got full use of the hut and hot tub. If you’re thinking of staying here the tub is a no brainer. It’s a wonderful escape from civilisation and we’re so glad we discovered it for our first Airbnb experience! Thank you to Lisa for meeting us and showing us how to find the hut and use the facilities, made us extremely comfortable staying here! Would highly recommend!

    Jamie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Just unbelievable Wish we could have stayed longer

    Chris2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • I paid for a night away for my partner for a Christmas present. It was prefect. The location was so quiet and we could see the stars perfectly. I was slightly worried it might be cold but the wood burner kept it extremely toasty and was easy to keep alight! The little touches in the place were so lovely from the fairy lights to the tea lights. Jeremy met us and explained all we needed to know. We paid extra to use the hot tub which was great. Thankfully you can add some cold water as we got in after the pub and it was soooo hot haha! Jeremy recommended The Plough Inn and we are glad we went - the food was amazing and they even catered for me as a vegan. The only thing I’d have changed is I’d have booked to stay longer! Thanks for a fab little spot.

    Isabel2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks so much to Lisa who was a great hostess. I took my partner as a surprise and when we arrived, Lisa was waiting there, opened the gate and we followed her down a farm lane ... my boyfriend had absolutely no clue what was going on. Then we arrived at The rectory hideaway and he was really pleased! We had an issue with the gas cooker but Lisa fixed it. The bed was really comfortable and the hot tub was just lovely! Such a lovely place, wish we had longer! Thank you for a lovely stay .. I have friends who may visit after seeing our photos!

    Hannah2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Ben and Mark were incredibly from the offset with clear instructions and communications. The house is beautiful and very much a home. There’s a range of great walks to take on in the surrounding area and plenty of info was provided around this. We ate in both nights and the kitchen and dining room is perfect for the no of guests. Upstairs is beautifully decorated and warm, will definitely be back

    Jamie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most beautiful Air BNB's we have ever stayed in. Ben was a fantastic host, a lovely guy and he really goes above and beyond in every element to ensure you have the best stay possible. He was there to meet us when we arrived and gave us a tour around the house and how to use all of the facilities. The house is absolutely stunning and a lot of thought has gone into maintaining the original details of the house but with some modern touches such as the kitchen and bathroom. It was the perfect weekend getaway, I just wish we could have stayed for longer!

    Cat & Mike2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely weekend at Ben's place. It is very tastefully decorated and Ben has thought of everything you could possibly need or want. We enjoyed relaxing in front of the roaring log fire and everyone slept well in the super comfy beds. He was very helpful with lots of local restaurant suggestions for us to pre book. The location is peaceful and perfect for visiting lovely Cotswold villages. We were sorry to leave and would definitely return.

    Hazel2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Stop looking, you've found the most stylish, warm and perfect 3-couple place in the Cotswolds. We couldn't have felt more stylishly at home in Ben's place - every detail is perfect and Ben is thoughtful and was always on hand with tips and suggestions.

    Emma2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about this house was wonderful and I cannot recommend it highly enough. From the comfortable beds to the warm showers and roaring fire! It was above and beyond what we were looking for. An exceptional, beautiful property.

    The Barn, sits in the gardens of Bridge House in the historic town of Lechlade, gateway to the Cotswolds. Whilst the interior has been modernised to provide luxurious accommodation, it still retains much of it's period charm and character.
    The Barn sleeps 6 people and comprises 1 double bedroom and 1 family room which sleeps 4. There is a bathroom with power shower, wc and basin. Downstairs the open plan kitchen/dining area is perfect for a relaxed breakfast or a romantic dinner. The light and airy sitting room looks out through white wooden shutters onto the beautiful garden. 2 large sofas provide a comfortable setting for relaxing whether you're chatting with friends or watching TV and there is a piano for our more musical guests.
    The bustling market town of Lechlade-on-Thames sits on the southern edge of the Cotswolds and is named after the River Leach which joins the Thames nearby. It's a favourite mooring spot for river boats and a popular location for fishermen. There are several pubs, restaurants and antique shops to visit in the town as well as the famous Christmas shop. There is a plethora of walks, not just along the banks of the Thames but around the lakes and surrounding countryside. It's a wonderful place from which to explore the nearby towns and villages and discover the beauty of the Cotswolds.
  • The Barn really was the perfect place for a chilled girly weekend. Deborahs home is so beautiful and has everything you need! Being a gated property with a lovely garden area, meant you truly felt secluded, despite only being a few minute walk from the town. Deborah had made so many lovely personal touches that were very much appreciated. We were so close to many attractions. We will definitely all be visiting The Barn again.

    Chlöe2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful barn conversion with so many thoughtful touches. We enjoyed our stay and would happily come again!

    Katie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The Barn was an amazing place to stay. Deborah was quick to reply and made the check in process so easy. Very clean, great amenities, and great for children as well - they loved playing basketball! Would highly recommend staying here.

    Carolina2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A clean spacious well decorated and lots to do house.

    Nadira2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time, it was a short walk to local shops and pubs, the area is beautiful. We loved the extra touches like the scones and flapjacks. Would definitely recommend and we hope to visit again.

    Lucy2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Deborah's got it down!! This was our 3rd visit to the barn and will not be our last. Thoughtful touches, great location, top communication, AirBnb at its very best.

    Scott2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful barn in a beautiful setting. Perfect place to relax and unwind. My nephew loved the gardens! We will be back!

    Sian2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at the barn for a girly weekend and will be staying again! Beautiful barn with thoughtful touches. Deborah was quick to respond and organised a masseuse within an hour. The barn itself is beautiful and clean. Lechlade is a perfect central point for exploring or equally the barn itself is perfect for a relaxing weekend.

    This is a very special welcome and airy home located on 2 1/2 acres in a small Cotswold village. The house a perfect country retreat, beautifully presented and stylish with large, spacious rooms. The house is a perfect space for relaxing or entertaining friends, simply nothing but perfection!
    The house is the perfect country retreat. The downstairs rooms are all communal which makes the house ideal for entertaining or just 'hanging out'. The house features a large, modern open communal space which includes a double-height reception area (around a large stone fireplace), kitchen. A second reception room which is decorated more traditionally, perfect for evenings with a fire lit and a film on the projector screen. A cozy study off the second reception room includes a fireplace. Five double bedrooms include a large master bedroom and second VIP guest bedroom. Underfloor heating throughout the house with oak floors in the reception areas. This is an excellent holiday cottage in every respect, perfect for a large family or for two or three couples with kids who fancy a home for a 'proper' holiday or equally for a short weekend trip to the Cotswolds. ACCOMODATION Welcoming entrance hall with double-height ceiling. Off the entrance hall is the most wonderful boot room which doubles as a guest loo, so inviting you might just decide to spend your holiday in the loo! Main reception room is a gorgeous space decorated in muted colours around a large stone fireplace. This room has large windows with lots of light and is open to the dining space and kitchen, offering modern use of the large space. The large dining table, which seats up to 18 people, lives between the main reception area and the open kitchen. True to its name, Garden House is filled with lots of plants and flowers, and the dining space doubles as a conservatory, opening onto a large pond filled with koi! The kitchen is a delightful space which makes meal-preparation a fun group activity. The best part is a traditional wood oven perfect for pizza night! The master bedroom is on the second floor above the communal space, with an extra-large king bed and private terrace, bathroom with large shower and separate traditional bathtub, and large walk-in closet. The second reception room is decorated more traditionally, with a lovely wood burning stove and movie projector and screen which drop down for the ceiling. Connected to SKY and AppleTV, this room is perfect for a film after a lovely evening meal. The study is a cozy space decorated with loads of books and comfy furniture. Light the fire and tuck into your book! The first floor features two further en suite bedrooms. One in particular is large, I call it the VIP guest bedroom, and is perfect for a second couple. Frankly you may well find the VIP guest bedroom, with its queen four poster bed, even more inviting than the master bedroom. The VIP guest bathroom is large, with a walk-in shower and separate traditional bathtub. The third guest bedroom on this level, with a double bed, is a lovely room, with an en suite bathroom. The fourth and fifth bedrooms are in the loft, sharing a private bathroom off the landing. Each with a double bed, these bedrooms are not as special as the others but is perfect for a couple of kids, single adults or couples that are not fussy.
    Location. Little Faringdon is a charming Cotswold village (20 cottages only), with the village church across the road from the house. Little Faringdon has lots of fun and interesting characters, though is a quiet village and Garden House benefits from lots of privacy. The village is located just 3 miles outside of Lechlade and 10 miles from Burford, both of which have lots of shops. The house is 5 miles from the Cotswolds Wildlife Park which kids of all ages love. Pubs. There are several wonderful pubs locally, and in particular I would recommend the Plough in Kelmscott, the Five Alls in Filkins, The Bell in Langford and the Swan in Southrop. The Ox Barn at Thyme Manor in Southrop is an excellent restaurant and bar which uses seasonal ingredients locally sourced (warning: expect London prices). All recommendations are within a 5 minute drive from Garden House and with wonderful food and atmosphere! Advance reservations are strongly recommended on weekends. Provisions. Ocado will deliver to the house, although I encourage guests to shop locally in nearby Lechlade where there are grocery stores (Londis and Co-op), an excellent butcher (Cutler & Bayliss), and a knowledgable wine merchant (Vin-Est). Nearby Burford also has a wonderful selection of stores for provisions. Shopping locally supports our community and is a part of the pleasure of being in the countryside.
  • Jeff's beautiful home was perfect for our family celebration. We had a fantastic stay, feeling very cosy inside with a storm raging against the windows! Loved the pizza oven and open fire. You won't be disappointed!

  • A truly wonderful place to stay. We stayed with extended family for my mother’s 70th birthday and it was perfect. Great family meals and relaxing by the many fireplaces. Jeff’s tips for the area were very good - smoked eel from Upton Smokery was excellent!

    Jenny2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • A magical, memorable, magnificent weekend away with family and friends for my mother's 80th birthday. It was terrific to be able to have the (once-in-a-lifetime for us all, I would imagine!) opportunity to stay in a place as stunning as this. The adults loved the house and fabulous, interesting art and decorations, the kids loved the chickens (we got quite a decent haul of eggs!) and the projector tv. Thank you Jeff for choosing to AirBnb'ing your home like this, it was an experience we will never forget!

    Georgina2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Jeff’s place. The communication was super easy and quick and the place looks even better than in the pictures. The property is in an excellent location (car recommended) and has all the amenities you could possibly require. Jeff’s area-specific recommendations were amazing. Would highly recommend the property and definitely hope to stay there again soon!

    Oliver2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautiful and full of character inside. We felt like we were treasured friends rather than paying guests. The house was full of home comforts and fascinating objects to look at. Jeff was very generous at providing lots of different types of teas, coffees, jams etc and we felt rather honoured that he entrusted his home to us. Shirley the housekeeper welcomed us on arrival, showed us around the house and explained how certain things worked eg the projector, heating, wifi. I highly recommend a visit and would certainly like to go back there.

    Tracey2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is probably the most beautiful place we have ever stayed! Everywhere you look is perfection and the amenities are fantastic! This is the perfect place for almost any occasion where you would like it to be both special and memorable. Excellent communication with Jeff and Shirley. We had such a relaxing stay and truly hope we can visit again in the future! Thanks Jeff.

    Suneeta2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah is a wonderful host, very attentive and helpful. Lovely accommodation, cosy and comfortable. Really homely feel and beautiful location. We really enjoyed our stay.

    Sarah2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Cotswolds at its best. A beautiful well presented and proportioned cottage bursting with homely touches to enhance your experience from arrival. Within short reach of lovely Burford high street.

    Leah2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect weekend getaway. A birthday weekend for a group of 7 girls. The cottage itself is stunning and Sarah makes a lot of effort with the little details. The kitchen is very well equipped and we were welcomed with a lovely bottle of wine, some milk and orange juice! The little touches make a difference! Sara responded very quickly to any queries and gave us recommendations for local eateries and walks. Rose Cottage felt like a 5* hotel, beds were so comfy and spacious. The perfect place for walks to the local pub and cosy nights in on the sofa in front of the fire. We will definitely be back!

    Lydia2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah was a great host, very responsive and accommodated all our needs. The cottage is lovely and perfect for a family stay. Well equipped and the log fire was just lovely. Would highly recommend.

    Rachel2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy but spacious cottage (we were 5 adults) surrounded by beautiful Cotswolds countryside. We loved the log burner (we bought a generous bag of extra logs) and found the place well equipped - we happily cooked a roast for Christmas dinner. Comfortable and quiet at night with most bedrooms having nice thick curtains. Only minor quibble was it would have been nice to be able to regulate the heating more ourselves as we sometimes found it too hot or too cold, but overall I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rose Cottage!

    Ellis2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah's place was clean and tidy, with everything you need. Plenty of space in the living and dining areas for us (a group of 7), and in a lovely little village. Sarah was speedy at answering questions and even provided milk, orange juice and a bottle of wine! The perfect getaway.

    Beth2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah's cottage is really spacious but cosy. All the rooms were really clean, well appointed and laid out. The kitchen is really well equipped too which is helpful if you decide to cook a meal in. We really enjoyed that there were some pretty Christmas decorations as it helped make our break feel very festive :-) Would recommended

We took a puppy with us and had no problems at all, the garden is very secure and Piers has a very friendly young dog also! The area is quiet and calm but has some nice walking routes and a local pub that serves amazing food. Overall a really lovely stay.

The shower room is on the small size but does have an excellent shower! The sitting room has a large TV with freeview sofa coffee making facilities.
    Things to Do and See (here are just a few suggestions!) We are 5 miles from the picturesque town of Burford, 4 miles from Lechlade on Thames and 3 miles from Bampton (where many scenes from the TV drama Downton Abbey, were filmed). There is a wonderful garden centre in Burford (Burford Garden Company), many nearby beautiful gardens/stately homes and old manor houses (Friar’s Court, Kelmscott Manor, Buscot Park, Blenheim Palace etc). There are also lots of stunning walks along the Thames and of course right on our own doorstep we have miles of countryside. Please do just ask us for further information and directions. If you are out on a local walk – look out for Gary Barlow (of the boy band Take That!) and family – they have a house in our village! Eating Out – we are spoilt for choice; The local village pub, The Plough serves lovely pub food and is a short 5 minute walk away. Other good pubs in neighbouring villages are: The Bell in Langford (booking strongly advised) The Five Alls in Filkins The Plough in Clanfield The Plough in Kelmscott The Lamb in Burford The Trout at Tadpole Bridge near Buckland There is an excellent Spanish Tapas bar/restaurant in Faringdon called La Bobina.

There are various take away restaurants (Chinese/Indian/Fish and Chips/Domino’s Pizzas) – please just ask for menus/details. The nearest town for supermarkets/chemist is Carterton (2 miles away). A little further away is Oxford, Cheltenham and Bicester Outlet Village. Nearest Cinema is in Witney Excellent local taxi company is Charlie’s (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) (the postcode is OX18 2QA however, you must state near Oakey Close as the SatNav tends to take you to the other end of the village!) Other things to note We have a working cocker spaniel called Binky - she is very friendly, great with other dogs and young children
  • Really great place, lovely area, and Piers was great when we booked last minute. Really recommend

    Tim2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

  • A wonderful spot to dry off after a long day exploring Oxford in the rain ;) The Barn was lovely- clean, homey, and welcoming. Light breakfast and coffee/tea were perfect and greatly appreciated. We used Pier's place as a base to explore Oxford and the Cotswolds and it was an excellent choice. We'd recommend it to anyone and hope to stay again.

    Jenny2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Piers is a fantastic host! Great Communication and plenty of suggestions on things to do in the local area; we personally had great meal at an Indian/Thai restaurant called the Snooty Mehmaan. The accommodation was spotless and very comfortable, we will be back for sure! Piers house is gorgeous!

    Louis2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • What a gem of an Air Bnb! The bed is super comfy, the shower a delight and the overall space ideal for a stay in the Cotswolds. It felt very private even though it's a joined to the main house. The local pub (The Plough, which is only a few minutes walk away) was the perfect haunt for an evening meal and a few drinks. Both Piers and the lovely Doggo provided us with the warmest of welcomes! Thanks again : )

    Entire home suitable for up to 4 people. Located in a Cotswold village with endless rural walks from the doorstep. New for 2020, a luxury Finnish Sauna ( optional extra ). Garden with 2 separate seating areas and brick built BBQ. Field opposite, home to our goats and hens. Private parking adjoining cottage, bustling village pub a stroll along the lane. Many local attractions. A perfect setting for a relaxing retreat.
    Beautifully renovated in characterful Cotswolds style. The Cottage has a large living room with separate kitchen and separate conservatory used for dining. It is a cosy space but yet big enough to feel relaxed as a group. A new 3/4 person luxury Finnish sauna is an optional extra.
    The village of Alvescot is quintessentially English. It has a lovely local pub serving good food and beer (we recommend to book beforehand) and a church. In the village there is also a large, safe playground for children and a tennis court. The cottage is located next to a farm and stables. It is just lovely to walk out and enjoy the countryside. The popular town of Burford is just a 10 minute drive away. Here there is lots to see and lots to do.
  • Dominic and his parents were great hosts. The extra touches, like the welcome breakfast were very thoughtful and much appreciated by me and my family, we had a lovely stay and would highly recommend!

    Lorraine2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed here with my partner and our one year old daughter, my mum and sister. It was very cosy and relaxing - a lovely place to escape the dreary Feb weather. We took full advantage of the amazing sauna. Although the weather wasn't good enough for much exploring we made it to the Plough for dinner, which we really enjoyed. The village and countryside is very pretty so I could easily have spent a couple more days there. In summer I can imagine the garden is a lovely place to spend time with friends and family. The facilities were great with a well equipped kitchen and lots of cosy blankets to snuggle up in the living room. I liked the dining room setup, which is in the conservatory so very light and airy. The heating kept the place nice and warm. Thanks again for a lovely weekend! Amy

    Amy2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage with everything you could wish for. Definitely worth paying the extra for the fabulous sauna! It's like a private spa in the countryside. The kitchen was well kitted out and it felt like a home from home. The only disappointment was having to go home.

    Claire2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is beautifully presented, decorate and furnished to a high standard, wonderfully clean and has all the amenities you need and more. The welcome breakfast made a lovely family breakfast on our first morning with a big selection of teas and coffees etc provided as well. The cottage is within driving distance of all our favourite Cotswolds villages and we also visiting the Cotswold wildlife park and gardens, which was a lovely day out. The village pub is great- child friendly, warm and welcoming. Highly recommended, I’m sure we will be back.

    Hannah2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Dominic is a wonderful host. His father Peter who helps manage the property was a great help. We arrived late in the night and it can be a little tricky to find the cottage. He came out to road to ensure we could find our way. The cottage itself has a wonderful feeling of home, with many authentic touches, and several great books and maps of the region. They greeted us with free range eggs which was a thoughtful touch. We thoroughly enjoyed the private garden with wonderful sunlight in the mornings. Several major supermarkets are also conveniently 5 mins driving away and there is local pub/restaurant with very friendly staff. Overall a great 2 days.

    Tomlinson2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for being kind and welcoming even though I arrived late. Relax and leave in small food and warm homes. I want to come back ~ :-)

The bed and pillows are so comfortable and under floor heating just makes it that more dreamy. Outstanding value for money I believe for what you get. A private safe courtyard, own entrance, beautiful big bedroom/lounge area in a tranquil little village? Would love to return in summer. Thank you

    Nicole2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Without a doubt, the most beautiful air bnb in Great Britain! The pictures on the advertisement do not do it justice. The bathroom is stunning & has heated flooring, the towels were extra fluffy, the carpet in the living area was immaculate, the interior decoration was stylish & modern, yet very country & cosy at the same time. The place is fully equipped with shampoos, shower gels, moisturisers, make up remover pads etc so if you’re the type of person who wants to go places with hand luggage only, this air bnb is for you. The host couldn’t of been more fantastic, pure British hospitality at every moment. Wish I could have stayed for longer, 100% would recommend this air bnb! Absolute perfection!

    Jes2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • Our stay was unfortunately only one night, but we wish we could have stayed forever! Everything about The Granary was superb. The room is vary spaces and open, as well as being self contained. The bed, carpet and under floor heating meant that our stay was extremely relaxing and comfortable. There is a small sofa to watch TV which is Netflix equipped. And there is also a small dining table with 2 chairs, obviously for eating at. There was plenty of teas to chose from as well as a section of cereals. Plenty of cutlery is also available in the draws. Outside the room there is a utility room that you are able to use, and this contains a fridge, sink and microwave. We will be back!

The location is perfect for exploring the Cotswolds and close enough to towns such as Witney and Oxford for shopping etc. Nick and Hannah were perfect hosts, replying straight back to messages and chilled out when welcoming you to their lovely property. Can’t compliment them enough - perfect ... a complement to Airbnb

Nick and Hannah were very accommodating and just left us to it for the whole weekend. Highly recommended!

    Surrounded by nothing but acres of fields filled with wildlife, College Farm Cottage is a charming 18th Century child- and dog-friendly* property, sleeping 3 guests in 2 bed-rooms with 1 bathroom. A short drive from the Cotswold towns of Burford and Lechlade, College Farm Cottage is perfect for guests seeking open space and tranquillity, with plenty of walking routes quite literally on your doorstep.
    *Dogs: Up to 2 well-behaved dogs are welcome at the cottage at an additional cost of £30 per dog. Please let us know if you will be bringing a dog(s) and we will then revise your booking confirmation. Introduction Low hedges, acres of flat green fields and an abundance of wildlife – these are the scenes that will greet you as you head towards College Farm Cottage. Situated on the expansive Bradwell Grove Estate, home to the Cotswold Wildlife Park, it’s hard to im-agine that you are only a few miles from Burford and Lechlade. As you make your way along the open fence-less lanes, you will almost feel as though you’re driving through the middle of the fields. Once you have arrived at the end of the farm track, you will find a delightful cottage with plenty of character – if you’re visiting in the summer months, you’ll even get to appreciate College Farm Cottage in all of its beautiful Wiste-ria–covered glory. College farm was built in 1771 by Trinity College of the University of Oxford for the use of tenant farmers as a source of additional income for the college. A working farm up until recent years, College Farm is now owned by the Bradwell Grove Estate, home to the nearby Cotswold Wildlife Park that exhibits over 260 different species of ani-mals – on a quiet day you may even be able to hear the lions roaring from the cottage! Although College Farm is no longer a working farm, it is surrounded by mainly arable farmland, all of which is organic. With a strong emphasis on conservation around the estate, there is plenty of wildlife to observe, from ground nesting birds to deer. You only have to step outside of the door at College Farm Cottage and you are right in the heart of unspoilt countryside, with bridle paths and walking routes running alongside the farmyard. Inside, the cottage is a lovely mix of traditional and new. The original flagstone flooring and woodburner add a touch of rustic charm, while there’s a new JVC Smart TV for guest use. Benefitting from a bright and airy feeling throughout, the cottage is decorat-ed in neutral tones, accented by quirky pops of colour and unique pieces of art and furniture. The back door opens out into a garden, while the windows boast views of nothing but green fields and the historic farmyard buildings. If you’re looking for peace, tranquillity and open starry skies, you’ve come to the right place. Despite its rural location, College Farm Cottage is just a 5-10 minute drive from the beautiful market town of Burford, where you will find artisan boutiques, cosy cafés, and interesting pubs. Walk to the top of the High Street and look back down the hill to enjoy one of the most exquisite views in the Cotswolds – and perhaps the finest ‘streetscape’ in England! Full Description Ground Floor Enter through the front door straight into the… Sitting Room A bright and spacious living space, the Sitting Room has a wonderful quintessential country cottage feel to it. Painted in fresh cream and white tones, the room has a cosy feel thanks to a corner lamp and its central feature, the woodburning stove. Set in the original fireplace, guests are welcome to use the woodburner, with a basket of logs provided. The original flagstone flooring is a characterful feature of this property, eve-ry stone is individual and unique. The Sitting Room boasts some beautiful pieces of furniture and artwork, adding eccentric and colourful highlights to a lovely relaxing room. There is a JVC Smart TV for guests to use, as well as a selection of books and games on the built-in shelves next to the fireplace. The WIFI router can be found in the Sitting Room window. To the left of the entrance to the Kitchen there is a latched cupboard. In here you will find an ironing board, iron, high chair, clothes airer and a mop & bucket. Through the door into the… Kitchen A well-equipped and pretty room, the Kitchen has a table and seating for 3 guests. En-joy breakfast looking out through the mustard yellow linen curtained window into the farmyard and fields beyond. With a cooker, toaster, kettle, fridge/freezer, oven, wash-ing machine, and cupboard filled with crockery and utensils, guests staying at College Farm Cottage are completely set up for cooking and dining in. There is a door leading from the Kitchen into the garden to the rear of the cottage. Through the Sitting Room and up the stairs. Please take care on the stairs as they are very steep and narrow. Into the upstairs hall and turn right into… First Floor The Master Bedroom A simple and sophisticated room decorated in neutral tones with colourful features, this exceptionally large and spacious bedroom is the perfect place for a peaceful night’s sleep in the heart of the countryside. With a comfortable king size bed and its own washbasin, guests staying in the Master Bedroom will appreciate the generous storage space provided by the built-in shelved wardrobe (where the travel cot is stored) and chest of drawers, as well as the beautiful views over the farmyard and fields. The cupboard next to the bed contains the water heater. Turn right into the… Single Bedroom Perfect for children, this compact single bedroom has plenty of storage thanks to the inbuilt wardrobe, and a comfortable single bed right next to the window overlooking the farmyard and fields beyond. Turn right into the… Family Bathroom The bathroom offers guests a bath with a fixed overhead shower, toilet and washbasin with one of the loveliest views in the cottage! Outside The garden of College Farm Cottage can be accessed via the back door from the Kitch-en. A great space for children to play or to even enjoy a BBQ or drink in the sun, the private garden is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the tranquillity of the country-side, except for maybe the occasional lion roar…
    Benefitting from the best of both worlds, College Farm Cottage enjoys a secluded location but is also the perfect location for exploring Burford and the wider Cotswolds. Please see the framed OS map in the sitting room where College Farm sits exactly cen-trally. In just a 5-10 minute drive you will find yourself on the High Street of Burford, a stunning medieval market town with plenty to offer. The excellent Co-operative su-permarket on the High Street stocks all immediate shopping requirements and is open 7am – 10pm every day of the week. There is also a Co-operative supermarket in Lech-lade, a 5-10 minute drive in the opposite direction to Burford, open 8am-8pm every day. There are some great cafés in Burford. Head towards the historic church and you will discover the newly built Warwick Hall and café, ideal for a morning coffee and snacks. Another good spot for a reviving cup of coffee or tea is Lynwood & Co on the High Street, where you can also buy delicious local artisan-made Sourdough bread and of course the famous Huffkins tea shop. If you find yourself parking in the main car park for Burford near the church (free parking) you will cross the mill-race connecting to the charming River Windrush that meanders through the Cotswolds, a lovely spot to feed the ducks and swans! Burford used to be a major coaching town between London and the West Country and was home to 35 coaching inns! The town still retains 13 pubs, of which some favour-ites are The Angel, a very good gastropub, The Highway and The Lamb on Sheep Street. There’s also a great variety of specialist shops to explore – including Maggie White and the fascinating Tolsey Museum. Alternatively, The Victoria in Eastleach, a very pretty Cotswold village nearby, is about an hour walk from the cottage and is a wonderful pub with good food, recommended by Emma and William. Also highly recommended - The Five Alls in Filkins and The Bell in Langford, both excellent pubs. All are popular so booking is essential. Around 5 miles south of the cottage, you will find Lechlade-on-Thames, a small historic town on the Thames, from which London could be reached by boat. With plenty of walks, a thriving market square, pubs, cafes and antique shops, Lechlade is slightly off the beaten tourist track compared to Burford and makes for a great day out. Here you will find a fantastic butcher, Cutler & Bayliss, selling high quality meat, cheese, fresh vegetables and bread as well as another Lynwood & Co café. If you fancy exploring a bit further afield, the beautiful ancient Roman market town of Cirencester is about 10 miles south and also there’s Witney which is an easy 11-mile drive east towards Oxford. Like Cirencester it has a great array of high street shops, larger supermarkets such as M&S, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s, eateries and a modern cinema complex. Also, around 15 miles away is the renowned Daylesford Organic Farm in Kingham, a farm complex that offers a farm shop, restaurant, spa as well as other activities such as farm tours and cooking courses. See the Burford Guidebook for further information.
  • A really lovely little cottage in the countryside. Quiet, well appointed with plenty of character. We had a really relaxing stay

    David2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at this beautiful cottage. It was very clean and spacious, and a working fireplace made the place super cosy. This is the ideal place for a cosy countryside weekend away. We will visit again.

    Shahmeer2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cosy cottage in the countryside in a perfect location for exploring the Cotswolds, had a great relaxing weekend.

    Simon2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely recommend this place, it’s lovely and snug: all very picturesque and exactly up the street of any cotswold tourists looking for a countryside idyll. Great location near lots of great villages, towns and Oxford. Clean, charismatic, an incredibly comfy bed. Just the January pick-me-up we were after.

    Ella2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time staying at the cottage, which was just what we needed. The setting was very scenic, and we enjoyed the using the wood burner in the living room, which helped with the cold weather! It was also lovely to explore the historic town of Burford nearby.

    Lottie2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely stay in a beautiful cottage. In a peaceful location with plenty of local attractions, food and walks.

    Beautiful little barn, perfect for a Cotswold getaway. Quiet, private and yet in the heart of a beautiful village which has an artisan bakery and coffee house, village pub with great menu, and a historic hotel with renowned gin pantry and restaurant* all within a three minute stroll. *Update..the Hotel will be closing for full refurbishment from Jan to summer 2020.
    The Little Barn is a small but perfectly formed Costwold hideaway. There is a double bedroom with ensuite shower room, a kitchen area suitable for making lovely lazy breakfasts and light snacks, a lounge with cosy fire, and TV for relaxing in the evenings. Outside is a private patio area, leading onto the larger garden and fields beyond. We provide tea, coffee and sugar, and we'll pop milk in the fridge so that when you arrive you can make that all important cuppa. The Little Barn is on the site of a 17th Century house, and has plenty of off-road parking and direct access to footpaths, and country walks.
    Location, location, location. The Little Barn is in the heart of Clanfield which has a beautiful bakery and post office, a wonderful traditional country pub with great pub-grub and a hotel with restaurant and outstanding gin pantry! We have immediate access to a wide range of wonderful country footpaths, and we're about a mile from the famous Thames Path. Downton Abbey uses our neighbouring village for their outside scenes, so it's worth a visit.
  • 10 out of 10, we loved our stay. The little barn is very cozy. Mary took care of us and gave fantastic local recommendations.

    Christian2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful stay just over an hour from London - Mary's gorgeous converted barn is the perfect place for a couple seeking some solitude away from the hustle and bustle. Mary was an incredible host (despite not being in the country, she responded to any message within minutes, organised an easy check in & even baked a cake for our arrival). The location of the property is wonderful - a 2 minute walk from the local pub (fantastic food!), and right on the doorstep of the Cotswolds, where you can get to most towns within a 1/2 hour. Highly recommend !

    Sadie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely weekend tucked up in the cosy barn (even with rainy weather!). Great space, all the amenities you need. We were hoping to get out on a few nature walks but with very rainy weather we weren’t able to, despite the weather we had a very relaxing weekend with the fire heater on and cosied up with some lovely cake made so kindly by Mary. Mary was a lovely host, met us at the door and welcomed us into the barn to show us how everything worked. She pointed out some helpful maps she had left and the guide for the barn which was super helpful. She also left some lovely valentines chocolate, special touches like that made all the difference for us. And the milk in the fridge was very welcome after a long journey there! The barn looks out onto the garden and fields in the distance which made us feel away from the busy-ness of life! It’s a good location to explore some of countryside and the pub really is just a few meters up the road! We were really looking for a weekend away just to relax and take it easy, and that’s exactly what we had. We’re now back feeling very relaxed and well rested! Thanks so much.

    Emma2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This space is incredibly lovely. My husband and I visited for my birthday and got rained in by a winter storm- I couldn’t have hoped for a cosier place to be! A lovely faux stove, cozy couch, and gorgeous beam infrastructure- we had a delightful time. Highly recommended!

    Sarah2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed for two nights in the barn with my fianceé. It was comfortable, private and larger than expected. Don't go expecting to be able to cook anything fancy, but the basics are all there. WiFi was brilliant, heating was great. Mary's communication was also fantastic. Highly recommended!

    Rob2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The little barn is a gem very comfortable and warm....great location a few doors down from the local pub which does great food and is very welcoming. Lots of places of interest to visit within a 30 mins drive and the Thames path is on the doorstep.

    Lindsay2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Mary has created a lovely space to get away from city madness. We had a wonderful time and with Mary's suggestions, had great day trips to a few surrounding places. Would suggest Mary's place to anyone I know - do yourself a favour and stay here! Delightful :)

    Mike2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed the Barn, adorable space and loved every part of it!!!! Would highly recommend for a weekend away!!!

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • We booked a wonderful 3 night stay and was not disappointed. Claire out host communicated excellently. Beautiful location and stylish and spacious accommodation. The beds were so comfortable that we all slept so well. After long country walks it was fabulous to be able relax in the lounge with a roaring fire. The board games were a wonderful bonus and a fair few hours were spent around the kitchen table in competitive mode. Highly recommend Dunford Barn and will definitely be returning.

    Libby2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely property, well equipped, plenty of space and we used all 11 beds. Very clean, plenty of hot water, efficient wood burning stove. Highly recommend.

    Elizabeth2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Dunford Barn is a lovely house in the Cotswolds. Perfect for a countryside . Definitely recommend.

    Kate2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • We all thoroughly enjoyed our short stay (family reunion) at Dunford Barn. It was the perfect ‘home from home’ having been beautifully & tastefully renovated only last year. We found it extremely comfortable, cosy & well-equipped. Claire is a fantastic host & so responsive to any query, no matter how small. We would definitely stay again & strongly recommend it to other visitors as the perfect base from which to explore the wonderful Cotswolds.

    Anita2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house was large, well decorated and spotlessly clean! There was more than enough space for a group of 10 adults, and the kitchen was well equipped. Met in person at the house and I felt that we could easily contact Claire if we needed to (although the instructions were very clear so it wasn't needed!) Thanks!

    Ideal for isolation! A spacious one bedroom annexe with its own kitchen and shower room. Accessed via its own door (mind your head!) a small entrance hall leads into a kitchen area, a shower room and on into a large south facing bedroom with high ceilings and large windows overlooking the front lawn of the main house. Relax on the comfy sofa or enjoy your meals at the dining table. Fully equipped for short or longer stays.
    The former Apple store has been newly updated to provide a wonderful space with a kitchenette, shower room and large, comfortable bedroom area overlooking the front lawn of the property. Situated in a rural location, yet close to local amenities, the site offers great privacy.
  • Gus was so helpful and was excellent at replying promptly to messages . The Apple Store was ideally situated for us whilst visiting family and is in a lovely , quiet location attached to Gus’s farmhouse. It is warm, comfortable and an ideal base for exploring the Cotswolds and nearby towns.

    Lynn2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place with the middle of the nature.... I can highly recommend ... we may come back soon

    Jordi2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent stay. Large room with exquisite decoration. Very comfortable stay and highly recommended. Since the accommodation has no address in the countryside, the location marked by the homeowner is actually another road, plus the homeowner is not very easy to point the way. It took me half an hour to find the place, and I have been suggested to the owner to add a GPS location. This makes it easy to find. The water heater stopped working three times, and the owner said to find someone to check it.

    Simon2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

    Set in a quiet village, with a pub that serves food in the evening and a pottery and cafe that’s open for lunch.
  • This is a fantastic place to stay if you’re visiting or passing through. It is small, quaint and very cosy and comfortable. There isn’t a fridge nor a cooking appliance, but don’t let put you off your stay here. The hosts were responsive, accommodating and generally outstanding. Happy to please in any way possible. I highly recommend the Little Lodge.

  • Me, and my boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Ben and Netty were so kind! This place is ideal and 30 minutes away from Oxford city centre, an easy drive! We loved the comfy bed, huge rain shower, biscuits with some hot chocolate before bed and the beauty products provided. Super clean, cute and cosy. Thanks so much! :) xx - Reviewed on my blog www.laurenwritesbeauty.com and on my YouTube vlog @ Lauren's Life :)

It's out in the countryside but very handy for Oxford and there are plenty of other things to do around the area as well. Ben and Netty are friendly and very helpful, and I don't hesitate to recommend this place completely! You won't be disappointed :)

We had everything we needed, with friendly neighbours who donated a few garlic cloves we’d forgotten. Fantastic for long or short cotswold walks or strolling around all the local villages and towns with cafe’s and antique shops etc. Great food at the pub next door too. Thank you Nadine.

    Claire2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely brilliant stay. Lovely cottage in a great location surrounded by great walks and pubs. It is quite an eco friendly house which is lovely but the water tank can only hold hot water for 3 short showers.

    Emma2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cottage in a great location. Very stylishly appointed, spotless and homely. We had a couple of queries, and Nadine always answered immediately. Good pub/food recommendation of the village pub, the Plough Inn. And also the Five Alls in the next village.

    Jeremy2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Exquisite in every way. Felt like real English villagers in the bucolic Cotswolds for a few days. Would go back to Nadine's place in a heartbeat!

    Betsy2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Jasmine Cottage is the quintessential English cottage, impeccably decorated and ideally located for exploring the nearby Cotswolds. The garden area is the perfect place to relax after a day of sightseeing, and the sitting room is quaint and cozy – unfortunately it did not cool off enough to enjoy the wood fireplace. We thoroughly enjoyed our week’s stay here.

    Sharolynn2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at the cottage- it’s a beautiful home and very stylish. We loved having breakfast in the private garden and the beds are so so comfortable (didn’t want to get up in the mornings!). Nadine was so communicative and check in was easy. Alvescot is a small and cute little village. The Plough pub is right next door and does excellent fish & chips! We can’t wait to come back again.

    Tamsin Bishop & KS2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a tranquil spot in the beautiful countryside, with delicious eateries close by, lovely walks and a home that is super cosy, then this is the Airbnb for you. We were 4 guests that stayed at this wonderful cottage and it greatly exceeded our expectations. Nadine gave us lots of great local tips and suggestions and we will definitely be returning in the future. Thanks so much for a lovely stay!

    Hania2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful, charming and clean home. Our stay at Nadine’s has been nothing short of outstanding. From the cosy evenings spent in front of the wood burner to the super comfy beds- the mattresses were among the best we've ever slept on! I simply cannot recommend this place enough. The host Nadine was so friendly and helpful and we truly appreciated all the thoughtful touches and advice that enabled us to make the most of our short stay. Thank you for sharing your exquisite home with us. We had a wonderful stay, and it was the perfect place to catch up with friends and explore the beautiful Cotswolds. The cottage is in a great location- the village is idyllic- and we had a delicious meal at The Plough pub located next door. We would be delighted to stay at Nadine’s cottage again in the future. Thank you!

    Roz2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • I always have a great stay at Maxine’s place. It’s nice and cosy in the winter and lovely being in the garden in the summer. Highly recommended.

    Alison2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Ivy annex was better than I expected, it was all very modern with nice touches, supersoft bedding and towels. It was easy to find and Maxine replied really quickly to any messages I sent. If you are heading into Carterton it is under 5 mins drive. Maxine's directions were spot on. I would highly recommend a stay here, I just wished I'd had a longer stay. There is a pub in walking distance (but not close enough to hear any noise from it) if you fancy a drink/food. Good value for money

    Jane2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and tidy, comfortable bedroom, plenty of space in living area and bathroom. Clear communication with host. Very good accommodation, perfect for our needs - we were guests at a wedding at Caswell Hall not far from Ivy's Annexe. Would definitely stay again and have no hesitation in recommending to other visitors.

    Melanie2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

    Sam2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • A great little gem of a place. Nicely tucked between two small villages that offer great eating and drinking. Walking into the village was a lovely way to start/ end the day with gorgeous sunsets and fields all around. Sabine offered some great suggestions of things to do and we had a wonderful stay. I can not recommend the William Morris Manor enough- very quaint and eclectic! Thanks Sabine for a lovely stay- and much needed escape from London!

    Ben2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful little place with a lot of character! Went for a delicious breakfast at Lynwood Cafe in Lechlade following Sabine’s recommendation. Would definitely recommend.

    Sarah2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely place to stay, the location was amazing. Sabine had some great tips on where go go in the local area and the pubs were fantastic. We went to the plough in Cranfield, the walk to it was really pleasant and the food there was amazing. Can highly recommend the aged beef burger ❤. The space is a decent size and there were basic kitchen amenities, microwave and sink.

    Sam2019-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is comfortable, well- located and quirky- the bed and glass floor is a lovely treat. Definitely worth the price. Sabine was a great host, very friendly, approachable and happy to share some great tips about the area. Local pubs were lovely and walk were easy to find. Would consider going back in the future without a doubt.

    Rubi2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Quirky sleeping platform with a very comfortable mattress! The accommodation is compact but was perfect for my requirements.

    Jeremy2019-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Loved Sabine's Well House, tucked away in the country side, perfect for two people, lovely quirk having the original well covered with glass inside. It is basic, bring utensils if you want to cook your own food but the little fridge and kettle was handy. Wi-Fi was handy for looking at maps and what to do in the area, and Sabine gave some great tips for things to do locally too! Just wish we had longer there!

    Anna2019-03-24T00:00:00Z

  • We had a wonderful stay at Plum Cottage. The cottage was spotless and Sue had left so many thoughtful touches which really made a difference. There was an abundance of information about the local area and also clear instructions on how to work everything in the cottage. The location was great as you could easily walk anywhere within the village. Overall a wonderful stay in a beautiful and cosy cottage. We would love to stay again!

    This is a self-catering listing with a small kitchen, and an en suite bathroom separate from the rest of the house.
    On the edge of Shilton village. Great for walks in the country side as there is a public right of way passing the house that goes all the way to Burford. There is a pub in the village if you feel like a meal out.
    Typical Cotswold Village.
  • We loved our stay here. A very positive experience. I thought the location was great, communication was excellent and indeed very good value. It’s very peaceful and spacious. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. I love the fact you can cook and enjoyed making breakfast and dinner! It’s was very warm in each room and a heater was provided for the kitchen if required. I thought the bed was super comfortable and the bathroom excellent. We had a car so used our couple of days to visit the local towns most of which were pretty close. Would return here 100%

  • Alex’s place was perfect. The bedroom is a lot bigger than in the photos - the bed is very comfortable and sofa situated nicely to relax and watch the telly. Very nice touch by leaving home made bread, bacon and eggs for us to make breakfast. Coffee tea milk and snack all available too. Bathroom was clean and lovely. Had a really great stay and would very highly recommend. Thanks Alex for letting us stay at yours!

    Tom2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little place close to Cotswold. Everything you need to enjoy your time including a fully stocked kitchen with breakfast items and endless tea/coffee. The bed was extremely comfortable and even had heated sheets for those cold nights. WiFi signal was very weak causing our devices to continuously get kicked off the network, but the place is in a rural area so partly expected. Highly recommend staying here!

    Taunia2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • The best airbnb I've ever been to. The cottage is charming, private, full of tasteful details with everything necessary for the comfort of the guest. Everything is incredibly clean. Alex goes out of his way to make a delicious breakfast of egg, bacon, fruit, bread, butter and marmalade. Coffee, milk and tea are available. Also a chocolate in the room which I found a detail of absolute kindness. The bed is super comfortable and has an electric mattress water heater which I personally loved. The bathroom is large and has a bathtub with electric towel dryer (another detail). Everything is new and works perfectly. The location is excellent as Shilton is a super quiet village on the side of all other costwold villages. The local pub is wells minutes walk from the house and is excellent and the food is delicious. I recommend 1000%.

    Vanina2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Alex's place was really great. It was very clean and a really comfortable bed. A very good breakfast was provided and it was a real bonus to have a kitchen and to be able to cook. It was a really peaceful place and Alex was a very good host. The village was lovely and the pub did good meals. Thanks so much Alex. Philippa and William

    Philippa2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent accommodation in a beautiful village. Walking distance to a lovely pub with good food. Such beautiful surroundings, we loved our stay here. Easy drives to other local villages of the Cotswolds . Breakfast was provided which was so nice of the hosts and really appreciated. I would definitely recommend to friends and stay again.

    Lara2019-07-28T00:00:00Z

If the ‘Camp’ is booked for the dates you are looking for, please look at our other cabins - 'Rectory Farm Retreat' and 'Rectory Farm Hideaway. All set in a similar setting as the Camp but with the addition of a hot tub!
  • Lisa met us upon arrival and was very helpful! Managed to catch Jeremy when checking out who was also lovely! Great little get away from the city. Would love to come back when the weather is a little kinder!

    Elliot2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyable stay, superb host. Good location for activities around Oxfordshire. Will be returning soon.

    Harry2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed with my family for one night in the converted waggon and we thoroughly loved our stay! The accommodation is really comfy and we especially liked that there was a wood burner. Jeremy and Lisa are very friendly hosts. I'd definitely recommend this!

    Rossella2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place. Loved our stay here...

    David2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jeremy met us for the check in and was really friendly, gave us all the information about the hut. It was toasty warm with the log burner despite it been chilly outside. We had a really nice stay :)

    Jo2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a place to switch off and unwind, was just perfect to reconnect as a family! We stayed at the hideaway and family in the camp was great, hot tub at hideaway was the icing on the cake! Can’t wait to book to stay again!

    Emma2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • We had a brilliant time in our little railway carriage. The kids loved toasting marshmallows and running wild.

    Naomi2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here, Lisa was lovely, really easy with our girls aged 7 and 5 which they liked. Hut’s surrounded by fields, it’s October/November naturally muddy and cold first thing in the morning, but the wood burning stove kept us very warm. 10 minute walk to a nice pub, nice meal, wonder back for board games with the children, perfect Nanny, mommy and 2 little ones
