We have children (and more importantly, grand-children!) in and around Oxford and SW London, so the location is ideal for us. The Barn is elegant, spacious and very comfortable.

Very Handy for shops, restaurants etc. We stayed for family wedding between Christmas and new year and the apartment was warm and cosy with brilliantly equipped kitchen. Only dropped one star for number of stairs (we had 85 year old with us!). Owner was very helpful, thanks Paula for all your help.
