Hanna was great at taking our booking and answering any questions. The property itself is beautiful, easy to get to from London, plenty of room for our whole group, dog-friendly, has all the facilities that you need and completely idyllic. The gardens, tennis courts and pools were perfect. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone and we hope to come back again next year!

A beautifully renovated historic cottage - our children were fascinated by the exposed beams and steep staircases - providing very comfortable accommodation of 3 generous bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 living areas and large modern kitchen/meals area opening onto patio and garden. All as advertised and pictured on your site. The house was very clean and well-maintained. It felt more like living in the owner's own house rather than a rental let. The owner left detailed information - copious notes on all appliances, as well as detailed recommendations for the local area which proved very useful. Swinbrook (lunch at The Swan is a must!), Blenheim Palace, Burford, Bibury, Hidcote Garden, etc. Milton-under-Wychwood, though not quite as picturesque as some Cotswold villages, is pretty and very central, with a great children's playground 5 minutes walk away and a fantastic Co-op that had everything! We had an excellent stay of 5 nights and would not hesitate to recommend High Ridge to friends or family.

The youngest visitor was two weeks old and the oldest was 90 years old. The young twenty year olds found great enjoyment with the billiards and table tennis and they thoroughly enjoyed the fire-pit/barbecue. Everything was of the highest quality. The beds were exceedingly comfortable and the kitchen was magnificently equipped, including tea-towels, washing up liquid and cling-film etc. We were glad of the two excellent Miele dish-washers in the kitchen, washing tablets provided. The numerous bathrooms were really well appointed and the White Linen toiletries added to our comfort.There was plenty of space for us all to find quiet corners when required. There were books galore if we had had the time to read. The internet connection was good. We saw an owl, rabbits, deer and numerous birds. Our dogs enjoyed themselves too and there were some good walks just outside the door. We wish we could have understood the recycling system better but that was perhaps our fault. Cakes and flowers welcomed us and we were sad to leave such magnificent surroundings. We would certainly recommend this property to large groups of mixed ages. We did not need to leave the property except to shop for groceries in Witney. We just enjoyed partying and companionship together. Many thanks to Alan and Caroline, the owners.
