We absolutely loved our extended stay here in the cottage - a beautiful and comfortable home, set in a truly gorgeous Cotswold village. A warm welcome from our terrific host Ros, with scones and jam as well! We had a very quiet and private position at the cottage, and the firebox made it so cosy. The fantastic surrounding area is easily accessed, and there is a wealth of great pubs and eateries to enjoy. We were so happy to have found this spot!

Superb cosy cottage ideal for exploring the Cotswolds and Oxfordshire

  • 5 of 5

The owner Ros and her daughter Jebet could not have made us feel more welcome. They were really helpful and made us feel at home right away. The cottage has been beautifully renovated by Ros from its former life as the village bakery. Really nice open plan layout on the ground floor with lovely comfortable chairs and settee. Ros obviously has real taste when it comes to classy renovation and you can tell how much thought has gone into the colours, features, and furniture - even the wide floorboards in the bathroom! (from a London Factory). The master bedroom has a really comfortable bed for a great nights sleep. As a walker, the location was perfect with part of the 66 mile Oxfordshire Way directly at the back of the house. We spent a day at Blenheim Palace (10 minutes up the road) and Woodstock. We also went to Oxford City centre and did a guided bus trip which I would strongly advise (as a lot of the buildings and interesting features are spread out). We also visited several Cotswold towns and villages including Burford which has a lovely high street full of old quirky shops. Also worth a visit is Burford Garden Centre (top end of town) which is the classiest garden centre I have ever seen. We ate out in the White Horse in Stonesfield (turn right out of the cottage to the junction and its a few hundred yards up the hill on the left) Very good food and ale (take a torch! and just beware it doesn't open on a Monday night). We also tried the Duke or Malborough Pub which from Stonesfield is just before you get into Woodstock - again very good food. The Woodstock Coffee house serves some stunning coffee and cakes. Highlights of this trip - The owners (and their really nice neighbours), the cottage particularly the log fire! and the beautiful walks around Stonesfield. We really enjoyed our Monday to Friday stay and would definitely go back again.

Lovely period cottage, beautifully up together with everything you could need

  • 4 of 5

Thanks to Ros for her lovely property. We had a fantatsic few days and the cottage gave us a great base to go out and visit local attractions, but also a great space just to chill and spend time as a family. The cottage had everything we could have needed including loads of DVDs, books and games. The accommodation was great and it was lovely to spend the evenings holed up with the fire and a nice glass of wine. It was good to be able to get out to visit some of the things to do locally and we had a great meal in the pub in the village.

The kids have already asked when we can gp back again as they loved sitting in the window seats with their books and looking out across the fields.

Excruciatingly beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing cottage in a beautiful corner of a really nice Cotswold village. AND the cottage was thoroughly comfortable as well. Lovely scenery all around us and plenty of good walks. Being winter we avoided the traditional muddy fields by doing most of our walks in Blenheim park. But we did not ignore the pubs!

Wish I was still there

  • 5 of 5

Oh what a beautiful cosy cottage. Location was so easy to find and all the Cotswold towns and bleinham palace was within 10 to 15 minutes drive which was perfect. It was brilliant for chilling out, resting and relaxing . Will definitely be returning and ros the owner was an absolute delight to know.

Really enjoyed our stay - Bakehouse is very cosy and comfortable and maintained to a high standard. Ros is the perfect host - nothing was too much trouble. We loved the wood burning stove in the evenings.

Parking to the side is accessed off a narrow lane which can be a little tricky for a large car. We found reversing in to be the easiest solution.
