SHOOTING LODGE COTTAGE
from £60 /night help
Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Quietly positioned in a corner of the farm, but not isolated. Shooting Lodge Cottage is surrounded by a small enclosed garden overlooking fields and trees with sheep and lambs and an occasional tractor for company.
While it is useful to have a car, it is equally possible to walk or cycle to the enchanting Chiltern or River Thames villages.
Further afield, by car or train, there is London, Windsor, Oxford, Bath and the Cotswolds. Within a ten mile radius there are as many golf courses.
Close by you can dine at one of the best pubs in Oxfordshire or enjoy a gastro experience at others a little further away.
Museums, theatres, art galleries and antiques will also help to fill your days unless you would like to try messing about on the river like Toad, Ratty and Mole for this is the section of the Thames which gave birth to Wind in the Willows.

A traditional brick built cottage (in Georgian times probably the groom's quarters - though now much modernised).
The cottage is available for weekly/fortnightly lets. Friday or Monday are the start days so on some occasions there are opportunities for mid-week or weekend breaks.
Linen and towels are provided.
A BBQ, garden table and chairs means suppers may be enjoyed in the garden overlooking the fields and watching the sunset.
With plenty of notice longer rentals may be arranged.
By prior arrangement It is possible for a rations pack to be waiting for you on your arrival.
The Oxfordshire region
Henley on Thames lies in the heart of the Thames Valley and Chiltern Tourist area. Spectacular beech woods grow on its undulating chalkland hills which are carpeted with bluebells and primroses in springtime.
Many historic houses are to be found in this area hidden amongst beautiful villages or riverside towns several of which are often used as the backdrop for popular television series - Oxford City for Inspector Morse: Turville for The Vicar of Dibly and nearly every nearby village (and the farm on which you may stay) for Midsummer Murders.
Each year, around the beginning of July, The Henley Royal Regatta is held on the Henley Reach, followed by The Henley Festival, the Veterans Regatta and the Traditional Boat Rally. Later the Henley and District Agricultural Association holds its annual Show and then The Henley Literary Festival rounds off the season.
The origins of Henley are well documented in the local River and Rowing Museum and a snail trail of the town afterwards will bring it all to life.
Trips to historic Windsor, Oxford, London, Bath and the whole of the Cotswolds; shopping in Bicester Village, discovering the hidden antique shop and the exciting art gallery will fill the rest of your days.
Wthin 5 miles of the cottage Greys Court, Stonor Park and Nuffield Place are three of the most fascinating local historic homes to visit with Greys Court within walking distance.
The Kenton Theatre, Henley, the fourth oldest theatre in the country, advertises frequent reviews and lectures whilst The Mill at Sonning offers dining and theatre - a most relaxing way of spending an evening.
Golf courses abound from pay and play to very smart - please ask for details.
The best pub for food and drink in the area is in the village, within walking distance, through our fields. The best gastro pub is just a few miles further - this journey is best made by car.
The Thames and Chilterns is an unsung area, the pearl in the crown and without the crowds.
