Fantastic Property & Welcoming Hosts

5 of 5
This is the second time we have stayed at Follies Barn, which is a clean, well presented and well equipped barn conversion. Jane and Jeffrey are very welcoming hosts and provided excellent reccomendations for local amenities and services - The home baking and basic supplies have been most welcome each time we have visited. We would definitely recommend this property to other guests.

Wonderful Location

5 of 5
Found this by chance when we were looking for Hotel accommodation & decided to book this instead due to reviews & quiet location. So pleased we did as exactly as described & made our first visit to Oxford memorable .
