    About this property

    With a secure cycle store at the cottage, bring your bikes and enjoy touring this beautiful area, including the university of Oxford.
    This cosy detached, beamed 200-year-old cottage, with a delightful west facing garden with views over the Berkshire Downs, nestles in a small hamlet outside historic Abingdon and a few miles from Oxford. On the banks of the Thames, Abingdon, purported to be the oldest town in England, is steeped in history with many fine old buildings. Oxford is the city of dreaming spires famous for its university, the Bodleian Library and Inspector Morse. There is so much to do and see in the area including boat hire, walking in the Downs, cycling on the National Cycle Route or spend a day at Blenheim Palace and finally return to the peaceful cottage garden and watch the sun set over the Berkshire Downs. Golf at Frilford Heath 2 miles. Shops 2 miles, pub ¼ mile.
    Beamed living/dining room with open fire and tiled floor. Compact kitchen with beam. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. First floor: Double bedroom. Twin bedroom.

    "A great place to stay - well presented and very relaxing."
    John ‐ 4 Nov 2018
    "Excellent and cosy place to spend a quiet week and, if you have the urge, somewhere from which you can take off and explore Oxford and the surrounding area. Every piece of equipment worked except the security key holder which would not close, and one portable heater, even though I replaced the fuse in its plug. Combined CD player and radio also a bit of a mystery! A really good feature is the open hearth and the chance to have a fire - logs were supplied but if you want more go to B and Q or Homebase just down the road into Abingdon after the A34 interchange. Best local pub is the Merry Miller at Cothill - good food and drink and log fires. Beware of a very busy road just beyond the lane on which the Cottage stands. Cars are driven at well over the 40 MPH limit supposedly in force. Not easy for pedestrians. Information left for visitors very thorough."

    "S15702 was a very comfortable and well-equipped base for our holiday. We certainly hope to return!"
    Peter ‐ 21 Oct 2018
    "For us the cottage was too small, especially the kitchen. The two of us had difficulties and I think it would not take four with comfort. The tap water was heavily chlorinated so a cup of tea tasted dreadful. We came home early so I am not able to give a full review of the surrounding area."

    "A perfect week away in this cosy cottage. Days out in Abingdon and Oxford and a few lazy days spent at the cottage. We enjoyed watching the rabbits and the red kites in the field behind the garden and star gazing at night... amazing. Thank you for having us S15702 xx"
    Daryl ‐ 17 Jul 2018
    "Really nice cottage where we were made to feel very welcome.... fluffy towels, chocolates in the bedrooms, fresh flowers, milk & juice in the fridge and a bottle of wine! The cottage itself is comfortable and larger than I was expecting from the website photos. It is away from the main road and so relatively quiet and the garden was a plus with our dog."
    James ‐ 11 Jul 2018
    "Worked really well for us. Greeted by lots of goodies when we arrived on Friday night. Would definitely stay again in this clean and well maintained cottage."
    Grant ‐ 29 May 2018
    "Perfect setting. Beautifully appointed cottage with all the amenities you could wish for to hand. Local country pub few minutes walk. Very helpful owners with great communication. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or indeed stay here again."

    "Absolutely amazing little cottage home from home thankyou for your hospitality"
    Valerie ‐ 3 Apr 2018
    "This is a lovely cottage - very clean and the owner left lots of welcoming touches. We loved the beautiful views and wildlife watching - there are hundreds of rabbits in the area. We also saw red kites. Very convenient location for Oxford and Abingdon was also lovely to visit. The property could do with a non-slip mat in the bath as it was treacherously slippery and someone will fall sooner or later in the tub or shower if this is not provided."
    Darren ‐ 17 Feb 2018
    "Lovely cottage very well equipped and felt at home within minutes of arriving. Will definitely visit again."
    Lydia ‐ 10 Feb 2018
    "Ideal location for visiting Abingdon and Oxford. Good local pub within walking distance and welcome touches."
    Michael ‐ 22 Jan 2018
    "We stayed at the cottage as we were working in Abingdon, it was well equipped and we enjoyed our stay there."
