Mary Ann gave us such a lovely warm welcome and was very helpful with regards to booking our Sunday lunch and information about the area and Oxford itself. The cottage was lovely, a real home from home and we would thoroughly recommend it to our family and friends, we want to come back for another holiday there. Our Sunday roast at the local pub was delicious. The highlights of our stay were local walks - lovely countryside, visited parts of the Oxford Canal very tranquil, Christ Church College tour including the banqueting hall, cathedral etc., Ashmoleon Museum, Natural History and Pitt Rivers Museums, Oxford Castle, Alice's Shop and the Covered Market all really worth a visit. Soaking up the history and great atmosphere of the City was exciting. We definitely want to come back and explore more. Thank you Mary Ann and Robert.

Worked really well having the two lounges, especially with the children who used one and the grownups were in the other. Brilliant big kitchen too. Bedrooms are all spacious and really comfortable
