COMFORTABLE AND RESTFUL

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Shire Cottage for one week. The property was exactly as pictured, clean, comfortable and very peaceful. We loved the backyard patio/garden, the sunny living room, and the well-appointed kitchen. The owners, Julie and Richard, were extremely helpful and wonderfully kind hosts. Our stay was made even better because of their kindness. The absolute only downside was the lack of bus service on Sunday since we didn't have a car. However, walking was a pleasure with the lovely scenery and the grocery coop and bus stop are just a minute away. We highly recommend this cottage to couples and families!

THE BEST!!!

  • 5 out of 5
My daughter and I arrived from the states on January 10 for a four night stay. We were delighted with the cottage. We headed back to London for touring and her return to the U.S. but I liked Shire Cottage so much that I booked in again in early February for 6 nights on my own. Excellent location- stops for buses running from Mon.-Sat. to Woodstock, Oxford, and Witney are a 2 minute walk away, and the train station is a half mile. Transport from Heathrow to Oxford is easy by bus or train, and from Oxford there is a train (or bus) to this town. The owners graciously picked us up at the Hanborough Rail Station. But, enough about that- the real attraction here is the cottage itself, and its wonderful owners, Richard and Julie. The living room is from another time- two stone walls, inglenook area with wood stove for winter use, bookshelves, and beamed ceilings. Well equipped kitchen, two roomy bedrooms and a full and a half bath. Excellent and caring customer service from the owners- I could go on and on. Want to keep Shire Cottage a secret just for myself! There is a grocery store and a convenience store with post office within a five minute walk. The George and Dragon pub is a half-mile walk and makes a terrific Sunday roast and sticky toffee pudding. Also nearby is the Oxford Bus Museum, a fun day out for vintage bicycle/bus/Morris Minor and Mini fans of all ages.

I will be back for sure, and I must say I really do not want to leave. This cottage and its owners provide excellent value for the money and do not disappoint.

THE PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
Cosy, charismatic, clean and comfortable. A delightful cottage in a great location. Richard & Julie (the owners who live next door) are fantastic, Richard is full of helpful hints of where to visit, mainly pubs that do great food and alcohol, he even turned up with fruit for breakfast one morning, which was a lovely surprise. You're welcome is fantastic, nice little touch of wine, bread and milk on arrival. Shire cottage is a lovely cottage in a delightful location and the hosts are out of this world, well done Richard & Julie, and thanks for a wonderful stay xxx

COSY WELL EQUIPPED COTTAGE IN LONG HANBOROUGH

  • 5 out of 5
We have enjoyed our stay in this cottage. It is very nice and fully equipped, we felt right at home and welcome. It was very nice of the owners that they had ensured a basic inventory to foods.
The beds slept very well, the cottage is spacious for three persons, that is very pleasant. We have enjoyed the fire of the wood stove, lovely in the fall. In short, we have had a pleasant stay, it did more than meet our expectations.
