About Miranda

I'm Miranda - I'm 44 years old & I've lived in Oxfordshire all my life. Having stayed at many self catering properties in the UK I feel I now have the knowledge to provide a cottage that would supply supreme comfort as well as providing all modern conveniences you'd expect when staying away from home.

Miranda purchased this chácara/sítio in 2012

Why Miranda chose Oxfordshire

It's a beautiful property in an ideal location! Simple as that! The cottage & location gives you the feel of village life yet you're within walking distance of Oxford City Centre. The place is spacious and comfortable as well as light & airy. Great for families visiting the local sites or ideal as a base if working in the area.

What makes this chácara/sítio unique

Its nice and private as its located within a very small gated development (just 3 properties). It's also all on one floor so no troublesome stairs. It has free WiFi and the signal is GOOD! I use it myself and never have any problems with connection. Two (yes two!) large flat screen TVs with Freeview so you can escape to the bedroom if the kids have the kids channels on!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Byre is a comfortable two bedroom cottage with all the necessary modern conveniences. It is conveniently located near to major roads yet provides the alternative of a pleasant stroll into Oxford through green pastures.

Lovely stay in a gorgeous cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a wonderful place to stay in. Very well equipped and extremely clean. We travelled around locally with the help of the excellent information provided by the owner. Our dog Dotty enjoyed her stay and the secure garden which we also found nice when the sun was shining. Would recommend to my family and freinds.

Great time at The Byre

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at The Byre recently. It is a lovely comfortable cottage with everything provided for a brilliant holiday. It was very well maintained and clean with easy access to Oxford and the Cotswolds. We were provided with all the information we needed by the owner to make the most of our stay, plus a complimentary bottle of wine. We went to Oxford and Blenheim Palace as well as Burford and other smaller villages. We can thoroughly recommend this property and the food and service at The Fishes, also suggested in the information from the owner. We also had a lovely Sunday roast at the Talk House, slightly further afield. We will certainly stay at The Byre again when we want to explore the area further. Ten out of ten!

A Perfect Stay near Oxford

  • 4 of 5

The Byre is a perfect house on a good location if you don't mind a 25-minute walk into Oxford and prefer the quietness of the countryside.

The cottage is very comfortable to come home to, after visiting busy Oxford or a long walk through the countryside west of Oxford.

Neat, clean, comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by the host Miranda who had already send us a lot of information upfront. Nice cottage, clean with tile floor, all in accordance with the description. Private parking behind the automatic gate. The beds are good and all extras (dish washer/ washing machine + dryer) included. You have no noise from the main traffic road close by. Going to Oxford center is best done by parking at the central parking at 2 km (2 pound) and then take the aready waiting bus (4.5 pound for 4 people). Or book a parking place beforehand over Internet only for 6 pounds, otherwise 24 pounds for the day. Supermarket at 2 km. Perfect place to explore Oxford, Blenham Palace, the Cotswalds and visit Stradford upon Avon by car.
