A delightful and charming period cottage situated in the heart of Woodstock with many original features, with comfortable beds and sofas and rooms offering various opportunities
A superb selection of restaurants and pubs are only a few metres walk away and one of Englands 'jewels' - Blenheim
Palace - is just a short walking distance. Blenheim Palace is the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Britain's most famous 20th Century Prime Minister, and currently the home of the 12th Duke of Marlborough. Woodstock is also an excellent base for visiting the beautiful Cotswold's, Oxford's historic colleges ( only 8 miles away) and William Shakespeare's birthplace, Stratford upon Avon. Oxfords glorious colleges and great shops are a short bus ride away, and its also an easy trip to London.
Woodstock has long been known for its manufacture of gloves and the town dates back to Anglo-Saxon origins and at one time had a Royal Palace which stood in the what is now Blenheim Park, the seat of the Duke of Marlborough.
Today Woodstock has many small and unique shops plus a bank, chemist and bakery and a well stocked supermarket for your everyday needs . Although ful of history, Woodstock is a sophisticated town providing a superb shopping and dining experience - in fact we think that Woodstock is one of the country's 'best kept secrets'.
The cottage stands in a terrace on a bank set back from the road, and overlooks Woodstocks famous Oxford Street.
The cottage has two bedrooms which sleeps 3 persons but it also benefits from having an upstairs 2nd sitting room that houses a sofa bed that will also sleep another two persons.
There is a cosy gas fire in the downstairs
lounge and there is full unrestricted gas central heating and also wifi access.
The dining area is set in the lounge and seats 5 persons.
History: There are some fabulous walks around the Woodstock area including Blenheim Park, Wychwood Forest and Kings Wood - there are reports of James 1 hunting here early in the 17th Century.
The remains of a Roman Villa can be found at nearby East End of North Leigh, and can be viewed as part of a walk between the villages of Combe, East End and Stonesfield where there is an abundance of Jurassic fossils.
I have managed holiday cottages in Woodstock for a number of years and had the pleasure of greeting guests from all over the world during that time. Please email or call me and I will be able to answer any questions you may have concerning this property, it's location and the surrounding area.
I very much look forward to hearing from you but in the meantime, best wishes, Linda
We stayed here in autumn 2015. The house itself is warm and welcoming –
with lots of character, and the feel of a home rather than a rental
property – very well-equipped and a good base to come back to after a day’s
exploring. Our kids loved the feel of it. We loved the interesting artwork
and great collection of books for holiday reading.
The cottage is also in a really good location. It’s right next to the
excellent Woodstock Museum and just around the corner from Woodstock High
St – which is great for cafes, pubs & antiques. The entrance to Blenheim
Palace is just a couple of hundred yards away, which is also handy. Oxford
is a short drive away.
We loved our stay and would definitely go again.
Bicester Village is a unique Outlet Shopping Village and is located just 12 miles from Woodstock and is home to over 130 designer boutiques offering up to 60% off normal retail prices, a must to visit.
