Ideally situated in Woodstock, with plentiful restaurants and pubs that are dog friendly. Centrally located for Oxford and The Cotswolds.

Well stocked on arrival and clean. The house, garden and surroundings ensured we could relax and the prior communication from Mark was very good. Tracey, who helps look after things, was lovely and offered help, although we never needed any! If you are looking for a quiet corner of the world, then look no further! The village and short walk to Greater Tew on a lovely summers day to the local pub was great. Picture postcard stuff!

                                                                                                      We stayed with 4 adults (my wife, me, and her parents) and our little pug. The 1st thing to say is that the house looks exactly as it is presented in the pictures on this website. Of course, a few items have been moved or replaced, but that only shows the house is alive and not a museum. What you see is what you get. The living room is very comfortable and well equipped, there is a TV with the full UK DVB-T bouquet and even an Xbox with 2 games and 2 controllers should there be any kids around. We only used the TV. 2 steps down, there is a well-stocked kitchen with a massive gas burner and oven. I could easily have prepared a 3-course meal for 8 in there. (The microwave, which we did not use, is neatly hidden away in one of the cupboards, and it, too, looks very clean and well looked after.) I only realized very late that the 2 sockets in the right hand corner of the kitchen actually provide USB charging ports for standard 5V USB plugs. Very handy. There is a huge sink and a well working dishwasher (which we used extensively). Next to the kitchen, there is a small doorway-cum-pantry leading out into the garden. There is a washing mashine (strangely enough a French one) which works perfectly well. The garden is great for a group of up to 5 with its round table and nice wooden flooring (the pug loved it, too, even the neighbours' cats). Downstairs, the cellar houses the dining room. As it is a real cellar, it is damp if you do not use the dehumidifier; after 10 minutes of heating, however, the room was perfectly dry, nice and cosy and even my elderly in-laws enjoyed their breakfast down there when it was raining outside. A quite steep set of stairs leads to the 1st and 2nd floors (and keeps you off too much alcolhol). Again, the house is what the pictures promise, full of little collectibles and artwork, and spotlessly clean. The bath on the 1st floor has a shower screen and is thus perfect for continental visitors, the bath in the master suite on the 2nd floor is much prettier, but has no screen. The property is very well looked after, contact with the owner very quick and very friendly and both house and owners are a definite recommendation. The village is full of nice pubs (the Black Prince, e.g., 2mins on foot, being the most dog-friendly one I have yet seen), there is a good chippie, a co-op and a fine Deli-Café on the main road. Oxford & the Cotswolds nearby: perfect area for all kinds of holidays. The S3 takes you into Oxf. in under 30 min
