It exceeded our expectations in every way. The rooms are light, spacious, modern, and airy, while the bones - floors, fireplaces, moldings - retain the original historic charm. On a quiet street and with a lovely yard, the home was a perfect retreat at the end of each day's site seeing. My only regret is that we could not stay the entire summer!

The contact with the owner went very smoothly and the studio was clean and exactly as described/shown on the photos. It can, however, get a bit noisy sometimes in the rooms on the backside of the building, as they overlook a courtyard where there's a parking and containers, but I experienced this as just a very minor flaw. Still, the apartment is located right in the centre of Oxford, which is a huge advantage to discover the city, and there are many good pubs and restaurants nearby. All in all, it was a very good stay!

It is right opposite the bridge in the heart of the very picturesque village of Clifton Hampden. One minute walk from the local post office and grocers, bus stops and church. Despite being right on the busy high street with the inevitable queues of traffic waiting to cross the bridge, it was incredibly quiet at night. The barn was spotlessly clean and everything was in perfect working order. Plenty of of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils etc., in the kitchen, TV with a huge selection of channels, a very comfortable sofa, dining table and chairs in the main part of the barn and one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, in the 'bedroom' area . The property owner, Amber, could not have been kinder and more helpful and I would definitely recommend this lovely barn to anyone wanting to explore Oxfordshire's towns and villages, the local countryside and be based in a small, safe and conveniently located historical place of interest.
