There's plenty of places to visit and things to do on your doorstep for families with children or groups of friends. Enjoy the numerous country walks, picture postcard villages and find a cosy cotswold pub to relax by a roaring log fire. Alternatively you're spoilt for choice if you're looking for day's out: Adam Henson's Farm Park, Cotswold Wildlife Park, or Batsford Arboretum with it's bird of prey centre, and the beautiful Jacobean manor house of Chastleton ( a great destination for a picnic in an truly idyllic setting) are all less than 10 miles away. Spectacular Blenheim Palace, Hidcote (one of the country’s great gardens) and the nearby Snowshill Manor and Gardens are half an hour away.
Historic Oxford with it's museums and universities is just a 15 minute train ride or 40 minutes in the car. Try your hand at punting on the Thames in Oxford with a picnic made by our Chef for a memorable day out. So much to do just visit our website for more inspiration!
Milton Under Wychwood
High Ridge is located in the unspoilt and thriving village of Milton-under-Wychwood. The village is one of the best served in the Cotswolds with a small Co-op, delicatessen, post office, library and dentist. The large village green is an excellent area to play ball games, fly a kite or play in the children’s playground. All weather tennis courts also available.
The village pub, The Lamb Inn is less than 2 miles away and is a lovely walk across the fields. With a delightful patio for enjoying a summer's evening dinner al fresco or a roaring log fire for winter evenings. That's if you want to leave the cosy lounge at High Ridge with its own roaring log fire!
Burford, The gateway to the Cotswolds, is set on a hill just 5 minutes by car. A stunning village, it's High Street sloping from the high Wolds, where you have beautiful views over the open countryside, down to the willow fringed River Windrush in the pretty Windrush valley. A fine three arched medieval bridge crosses the river at the foot of the hill. A perfect place for afternoon tea and a spot of shopping.

"fantastic holiday cottage"
We had a wonderful stay at High Ridge for my birthday celebrations, I was slightly concerned as I had read a negative review for the property on trip advisor after we`d booked. However this is a wonderful house - extremely comfortable - a real home from home. It was beautifully decorated and very well equipped - most definitely up to 5 stars standard. Clare has thought of everything including a lovely lemon drizzle cake & wine which greeted us on arrival - a lovely unexpected extra. The bookings arrangements were all very efficiently handled by clare also. We`re planning our return visit!
Thanks for taking time to write a review - I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.

"Really lovely cottage but ..."
High Ridge is a beautiful house, mixing the old Cotswold stone cottage with a modern extension that includes a very stylish kitchen.Unfortunately the facilities weren't as good as the house itsel… More
Thank you for your comments. I am disappointed that you felt High Ridge did not attain it's 5 star status. I continually review facilities at the house but in light of your comments I shall re-check the items you mention, With pillows and mattresses it is difficult to satisfy everyone's tastes. Our mattresses are all medium firmness. Our pillows too are all John Lewis hypo allergenic and of medium firmness but it sounds as though you like a particularly firm pillow & mattress. I shall remind the housekeeper to ensure there is a good supply of the kitchen basic's.

"This cottage was everything we could have wished for and more"
What a beautiful cottage - 6 of us had an 'older' girlie weekend for my 60th birthday. The cottage is quaint yet modern without losing any of it's charm, superb amenities and little lux… More

Thank you for your great review - the walk to The Lamb is fab isn't it. Did you stop at the wild garden & lake on route? Well worth a detour next time. Hope to see you back at High Ridge again sometime.

Thank you for taking time to write a review - I'm delighted you had a good mini break at High Ridge! Yes a shame about the Burford Chinese not delivering but it's such a good Chinese that it's worth venturing out. There are several very good Indian take aways that do deliver though!
We hope to welcome you back again soon.

"Brilliant place to stay"
This really lived up to - and exceeded expectations; it wasn't just the really nice fittings and decoration (etc) but the way the cottage is laid out - especially the kitchen/diner, makes for a really sociable stay - the kitchen lends itself to preparing a meal while all the guests share a sociable drink and chat - excellent.
Clare is a thoughtful and solicitous cottage owner - I liked the feed-back form she gives that enables you to report minor faults; the secure garden with decking and BBQ would be brilliant for the summer.....recommend without hesitation.
Thank you so much for taking time to review High Ridge. I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay & found the house to be perfect for your gathering. I do hope we can welcome you back in the summer when you can enjoy the decking and have a BBQ!

"Very nice, friendly, comfortable"
Enjoyed our stay in Upper Milton near Burford immensely. Our hostess was incredibly friendly, helpful and hospitable. The room was clean, comfortable and had been recently renovated. The farmhouse is … More
I'm afraid you have reviewed the wrong property. We are High Ridge Holiday let, we are not a farmhouse nor do we have a hostess. I think you meant to write a review for High Lodge which is the Bed & breakfast up the road.

"Holiday cottage perfection!"
I hired this cottage for my sisters hen weekend and it couldn't have been more perfect. It is such a beautiful house, all the girls were so impressed with the high quality fixtures and fittings. It feels so luxurious with five star bathrooms and kitchen. Part of our weekend was a baking competition and there was plenty of room for 4 teams to make a cake...we also used Rachel, the chef that Clare had recommended and she was excellent. Clare was very easy to deal with and she even left us a cake on our arrival.
I couldn't recommend this cottage enough, amazing value for such high quality.
Thanks so much for your wonderful review. We're delighted to welcome well behaved Hen parties. Your photos on Facebook look like you had a lot of fun with 'Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry'!!! Chef Rachel is a real find isn't she - she is such a great chef and having her to cook a celebration dinner really adds to a special celebration. Hope to see you at High Ridge again soon!
