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.

The owner Andrew was very welcoming on our arrival, helping us to settle in. We really enjoyed using the games room the evening before the wedding, and it was lovely to have a family meal all together, we felt totally at home. My Mum stayed in the guest room upstairs which she thought was beautiful (the access is still in progress but we were so grateful that the owners could accommodate us with the extra space). On the morning of the wedding it was lovely to have all of my bridesmaid arriving to have our hair and make up done. Everyone thought the surroundings with the horses right outside were absolutely stunning. I've always loved horse riding, and they all thought it was a lovely coincidence. But it wasn't a coincidence, actually, it was a big factor in booking the property as I'd read about the horses in the reviews and knew I had to stay here!! The day after the wedding it was lovely to return to the cottage to relax and open all of our gifts and cards. We used the local supermarkets and ate in. The facilities such the underfloor heating, the dishwasher and the washing machine (including all the tablets and cleaning products you need) were fantastic. There's access to lots of sheets and towels, you really don't need to pack much to stay here! I 100% recommend this property and I really hope that one day we'll be able to return and spend more time at the cottage and in the surrounding areas. Many thanks to Andrew, Justine and Ellen for such an enjoyable, friendly, professional and stress-free experience, from the booking to our stay.

We spent three lovely nights here and didn't want to leave. Great location with beautiful walks and local pubs. The cottage has everything you need to relax. Loved the bath in the bedroom and sitting by the fire at night. We walked the ridgeway to The White Horse on a gorgeous winters day. Local pubs The Royal Oak, The greyhound in letcombe and The Star all a reasonable drive away. Already booked to come back again.
