Surprisingly spacious and versatile residence in the Northbourne Conservation Area of Didcot dating back to 1874. Location is perfect for families because this is cul-de-sac, and there is not much traffic on the street. Originally a 2-bed cottage, the house benefits from many extensions and conversions carried out over a number of years. The property has a newly-installed heating system and Bosch boiler, newly fitted shaker style kitchen with in-built Bosch appliances, and new double glazing throughout. There are two reception rooms on the ground floor, kitchen and breakfast room, two bedrooms and a spacious bathroom on the first floor, and a loft converted into the kids den on the second floor. Ground floor has a sofa bed which can be used to accommodate more guests. Please note that bookings for more than 2 adults will have cleaning fee added to the final price.

Outside there is a mature garden at the back with patio area and a good sized area for children to play (outdoor toys and sand pit provided). At the front parking is possible off-street only for Smart or Toyota IQ, otherwise guests can park just outside the property on the street. There is no residents parking scheme in Didcot, so you can park your car anywhere except the usual double-lines/dropped curb etc.

Kids Amenities that we can provide *upon request*:

spacious cot

M&P highchair stair gates for bottom/top of stairs (can be removed - just tell us!)

electric steriliser

bottle warmer

playpen or gate separating two reception rooms

bpa-free cutlery and crockery for toddlers

a chest with toys

booster seats for table

There is a good size kitchen with traditional shaker units. Bosch appliances (dishwasher, cooker, hob, washing machine) and our tumble dryer with extra tall fridge/freezer will make your everyday chores a breeze. We provide the washing powder and conditioner should you wish to do laundry, ironing board and iron are available too.

There is 32" HD TV with freeview channels in the living room now, a small library of DVDs, computer games, books, board games, and a box of toys for your entertainment.

Although this is a self-catering holiday let, we still offer you continental breakfast consisting of Kellogg's cereal packs, muesli, choco pops, frosties, 4 types of jam portions and honey for your toast. There is a supply of tea, sugar, and coffee which you are welcome to. Sainsburys is just 5 mins walk away to pick up your milk and fresh croissants. We would also live a small UHT packet of semi-skimmed milk in the fridge for you.

Environment and Fairtrade Pledge: the selected range of cleaning products for this holiday let is from Ecover, a brand that is kinder to the environment. Where possible we source Fairtrade products for your breakfast and tea/coffee supplies.

"Very comfortable stay in a very convienent location"

This was a last minute Valentines booking for myself and partner and we were pleasently surprised! The Shire Cottage has a very natural and homely feel to it and it was like taking over someones house for weekend! The Cottage is very clean and inviting and nice family sized house, it was a pleasure to stay there! Olga the host was very accommodating and even left a box of Chocolate Truffles and a Bottle of Bubbly for our arrival which was a nice touch! Would definitely stay again!
