A spacious mezzanine bedroom with a king sized bed. Plenty of space to park. Regular buses from Wheatley into Oxford. The village has lots of amenities, pubs, butcher, baker, cafes, supermarket, so you can get whatever you need. A great base for our short break of 3 nights.

With it's own private cinema room, an outdoor heated hot tub, incredible dining and kitchen area, you could get lost in this place even with a full house, so a lot of space for everyone with fantastic views. A sonos system throughout the house and an indoor fire pit, this place is perfect for a celebration and a chilled night with friends and family. Both Penny and Kelly were extremely helpful and accommodatinig with any questions that I had. A stunning property set in a beautiful part of the world, with access to every kind of need you may have!

A warm sanctuary despite -5C outside. This apartment has been tasefully renovated with top quality fixtures nad fittings and the owners have literally thought of everything to make your stay both comfortable and convenient. The owners responded to our queries promptly and would highly recommend staying here. Please be aware that entrance to car park is narrow and access is limited. Marvellous to watch shoppers walking by during the day and the peace of Henley at night.
