The beds were very comfortable, the cottage was warm and there was everything that we needed. The owners made sure that we had everything we required and that we had settled in well; very kind and friendly. The village is peaceful and beautiful, it has a very relaxing atmosphere. The only regret we had is that we could only stay 3 nights.

It was perfect for our dog too and we enjoyed many different walks without needing the car. The cottage has everything you need and it is lovely and cosy in the winter. The local pub was great -only a short walk away. We can highly recommend this cottage and hope to return again.

The property has everything one could wish for - charm, character, history, country feel, topped with little luxuries to make you feel very pampered and well looked after (scents and soaps from some of my favorite makes like The White Company and Neal's Yard, gorgeous bedding and towels, extremely comfy beds, games for every age (massive hit with my 4 year old daughter), books, music, wifi, enough kitchen utensils to cook up a storm and to top it all up beautiful views and a real log fire stove.....). We loved the quintessentially Englishness of the area - in particular Woodstock. Many many places to visit and things to do. We came looking for quiet time, us time, and re-kindle our love for this beautiful country time after a busy fast paced year - and we found it! Thanks Ros for the hospitality and for making this place happen. Highly recommended.
