All very helpful (as were the provisions he left for us). Cottage is very comfortable and cosy and spotlessly clean - comfy beds, lovely bathroom, spacious and convenient kitchen (although it's about to be refurbished, we thought it was fine), comfy sofa and chairs in the sitting room + big screen tv. Modern comforts in an old cottage of character. Lovely back yard, too, with sun (if it shines!) in the afternoon - managed to sit out for a short while. For another stay in Woodstock, would try to book here first.

Angie, the owner, always responded really quickly before our stay and was there to give us a very warm welcome at the property. It's been done out beautifully so felt very luxurious and it's in the perfect location to walk to local shops and Blenheim and get a very easy bus to Oxford. I'd really recommend staying here, the only thing I'd mention is the stairs are on the steep and narrow side if there was anyone who struggled with steps.
