"Cosy and comfortable"
We only stayed for a few days but thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The cottage was clean and comfortable. In October the weather was starting to get cooler and we loved the wood burner - although the… More

- Bad communication before and accusing communication after the" rental".- At appointment time, no person available to give us the key of the cottage.- Mobile telephone number not answered.-… More
1. We provided all information needed to find the cottage via email several days before these guests arrived as we always do.
2. My daughter was waiting in to give them the key. These guests arrived early and did not phone us to tell us of this. I have no record of them trying to call me.
3. These guests left without giving us any explanation or a chance to address their concerns.
4. 'Accusing communication!?' I merely emailed them to ask them what the problem was.
5. We have had uniformly excellent ratings from the many (100+) guests who have stayed with us. This is the only bad review we have ever had – and we still don't know the reason for it.

"Delightful Cottage - Well Situated for Oxford, Woodstock, and Witney"
My daughter and I arrived from the states on January 10 for a four night stay. We were delighted with the cottage. We headed back to London for touring and her return to the U.S. but I liked Shire Cottage so much that I booked in again in early February for 6 nights on my own. Excellent location- stops for buses running from Mon.-Sat. to Woodstock, Oxford, and Witney are a 2 minute walk away, and the train station is a half mile to a mile. Transport from Heathrow to Oxford is easy by bus or train, and from Oxford there is a train (or bus) to this town. The owners graciously picked us up at the Hanborough Rail Station. But, enough about that- the real attraction here is the cottage itself, and its wonderful owners, Richard and Julie. The living room is from another time- two stone walls, inglenook area with wood stove for winter use, bookshelves, and beamed ceilings. Well equipped kitchen, two roomy bedrooms and a full and a half bath. Excellent and caring customer service from the owners- I could go on and on. Want to keep Shire Cottage a secret just for myself! There is a grocery store and a convenience store with post office within a five minute walk. The George and Dragon pub is a half-mile walk and makes a terrific Sunday roast and sticky toffee pudding. Also nearby is the Oxford Bus Museum, a fun day out for vintage bicycle/bus/Morris Minor and Mini fans of all ages.
I will be back for sure, and I must say I really did not want to leave. This cottage and its owners provide excellent value for the money and do not disappoint.
