          Peaceful and Relaxing Pastoral Get Away

          4 of 5
          I made the right decision to rent here instead of in Oxford proper. It was so beautiful to sit on the porch, or even from the comfort of the couch, and listen to the breeze in the trees, watch the cows in the fields and several boats motoring up and down the Thames river. It was very, very relaxing. All three bedrooms had their own full bath, which was very convenient. Very clean and very white! Comfy beds too. No problem using the television. Fans were helpful as we had a heatwave while we were there. Otherwise, the windows and doors were always open. Although it wasn't listed, there was a hair dryer tucked away in a drawer which we discovered after buying one. The iron came in handy. We rented a car at Heathrow and had no problem finding the house after we realized we were coming from another direction than the instructions described. Also, the signs to the house are very small and hard to see, so you literally have to turn at the 30mph sign. We drove to the Redington Park and Ride to get regular buses and a tour bus into Oxford instead of fighting traffic and looking for parking. We had several meals, and the best sticky toffee pudding ever at The Chequers Pub, just a short walk from the house. We also drove to Reading to catch the train into London for the day and successfully drove to Stonehenge as well. A Sainsbury's grocery store was conveniently located on the way home from the Park and Ride where we purchased basic cooking supplies which were not included, i.e., oil, butter, salt and pepper. The owner left a wonderful, freshly baked loaf of bread and bottle of white wine for our arrival. Because there were no instructions for the stove/oven or washing machine/dryer, we had to Google operations manuals to figure them out - never got the washer/dryer to work properly, which I mentioned to the owner at the end of our stay. She offered to come over and explain it but we were scheduled to leave the next day. I highly recommend this country retreat for those needing peace and quiet.

          I stayed here for a week whilst working in reading. The location is great and close to the centre of reading.. I work away a lot and this is one of the best places I have stayed. I had a large double bed, a living area with a flat screen TV and an massive DVD collection which also had surround sound! Very cool. I had a kitchen area too which was well equipped. The shower was great as well. Laurie was very welcoming on arrival and a welcome pack of milk bread and tea coffee etc was a nice touch. If I was to be working in the area again I would book here again without hesitation. It's very private and a lovely area too. Thanks again laurie.

          The Lodge

          4 of 5
          Wow,just perfect for us! Secluded, but only 10 mins from Oxford,so would suit all. The walking in Shotover-Royal Forest-was an added bonus,our dog came home on the Saturday for a rest!!! Mark,have to commend you for providing such a brilliant short break. However,the reasons why only 4 stars,is that the shower needs attention as flow and heat poor.Also, no light bulbs present in bedroom-wall n ceiling. That apart,would definitely recommend this property and hope to visit again in October!
