About the property

Nestled on the stunning Adwell Estate and surrounded by luscious pastures, fishing lakes and ancient trees, this is the English countryside at its best. Well-equipped kitchen, spacious living area with plenty of seating space, TV/DVD, WiFi, free Parking. Close to Oxford, Bicester, the Chilterns and London (direct bus). It's the perfect location!

Dikler's Stable is newly converted and equipped. This self-contained cottage has one bedroom and a dressing room/office. It is the perfect weekend getaway for those looking to explore Oxfordshire or just retreat to the countryside. Tucked away in the pretty Adwell Estate and adjacent to fishing lakes and trees, this is a lovely spot. Just two miles from Exit 6 of the M40 it is incredibly convenient for London, High Wycombe and Oxford. The Oxford Tube bus stop is only 10 minutes away and takes approximately an hour to London and half an hour to Oxford.

The living area is cosy and light looking over the orchard with TV and DVD. The eating area is next to the kitchen which is fully equipped with stove, kettle, toaster, microwave and washing machine. Up a spiral staircase is the bedroom with double bed and plenty of space. The dressing room/office has room for a travel cot if required. The en suite bathroom has a bath with shower attachment, sink and lavatory. There is parking space and a car is recommended.

House Rules - Additional Rules:

The London Residents Club wants you to have a fantastic stay, so encourage you to see the space as a home away from home - treating it as though it is yours!

There are, of course, a few things we politely ask guests to note before their arrival and throughout their stay:

• Maximum group size: 2

• Strictly no smoking, no pets, no parties

• No candles

• Dispose of rubbish appropriately

• Keep the property clean and tidy

• Whilst washing up and stripping the beds at check out would be appreciated, it is by no means expected

• Please keep the noise down and respect other neighbours in the building

• Please remember to close all windows and doors when leaving the space

• Ensure the heating is maintained at an appropriate temperature throughout the stay. If the heating is excessive, i.e. over £100 per month, you will be expected to cover this cost

*Please note that once the booking is confirmed we will arrange a check-in time. If you arrive 2 hours after the agreed time you will be subject to a £20 late check-in fee

**Please also note the check in hours are between 3pm and 10pm. There will be an additional fee of £20 for check ins between 10pm and 12am, and £40 for check ins past midnight Any questions or queries regarding the above - don't hesitate to get in touch, we're more than happy to help!

***The check-out time is fixed at 10 am due to our housekeepers needing access after this time but if you would like to leave your packed luggage in the property before your next transit, we will do our best to accommodate this (subject to availability). This is a really popular property so we often have guests checking in on the same day as you depart but we may be able to accommodate a late check-out but please check with us so that we can confirm this. There is a fee associated with a late check-out but we only charge £35 for you to use the property until 3 pm and after that, you will have to purchase an extra nights stay.

Nice location; property adequate

  • 2 of 5

Heating not on at arrival so property cold. No hand towels provided, only bath towels but hand towels were supplied when requested. This property does not meet fire safety regulations - no fire extinguishers; no heat detector in kitchen; no fire blanket in kitchen; no evacuation advice etc. Your description of the property is misleading: e.g. 'bath with shower attachment'; it is impossible to have a shower as ceiling height is only around 1.2m over bath, you cannot stand up and there is no shower curtain or screen. Kitchen described as newly fitted out - this is certainly not true of hob or sink. Hob was missing all control markings which meant that you could not tell which ring was on or at what heat - a safety hazard. I do not think this property meets building regulations as there was no ventilation to bathroom or kitchen; the windows in these rooms did not open to the outside and there was no mechanical ventilation. Set of coat hooks fell off door; reported to Imogen. We do not consider this property is good value; we have stayed in better for less. Whilst location is good we would not recommend this property.
