A self contained annexe set in the beautiful grounds of a Grade 2 Listed Thatched Cottage. The accommodation is in the Conservation Area of a traditional English Village on the edge of the Chiltern Hills - a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The location is idyllic with views of open fields where horses are often roaming and overlooking private gardens of over an acre. Set back from the road the location is extremely peaceful but within 30 seconds walk of the very popular and traditional village pub, which serves good food and traditional beers.

The location is perfect for walkers, cyclists and those looking to explore a wider area. For nature lovers we see many Red Kites and are a ten minute drive to the heart of the Chiltern Hills.

The house is 200 metres from the Phoenix Cycle Trail - a purpose built cycle route that links Thame to Princes Risborough and the Chiltern Hills

The accommodation is on the first floor and comprises: a large, very light bedroom with a king size bed and fantastic views over the countryside; an open plan lounge diner with a double sofabed; a shower room and a downstairs lobby.

The Oxfordshire region

Oxfordshire is a traditional English Shire County. With the famous University City of Oxford, the Cotswolds, the Chilterns, lovely villages and towns such as Henley on Thames it is arguably one of England's finest Counties


the Village of Towersey is a thriving small village with a traditional pub and an active local social scene. There is a Norman Church, many thatched properties, a Manor House and an Old Rectory as well as a playground and park. There are numerous footpaths and bridal ways and easy access to the Phoenix Trail - part of the National Cycle Network.

The small town of Thame is 1 mile away. Thame is a very traditional market town with a picturesque High Street that is often used as a setting for the series of Midsomer Murders. Thame has all the facilities you are likely to need including shops, banks, restaurants, a swimming pool and leisure centre. There is a mainline train station just outside of Thame that can whisk you to London in 40 mins.

Towersey is 3 miles from the foot of the Chiltern Hills - a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area is great for walkers, mountain bikers and nature watchers. We see many Red Kites throughout the area.


The historic City of Oxford is just 14 miles away, 12 miles to the Park and RIde which is the easiest way to access Oxford

"Beautiful cozy apartment"

We stayed in old Lane cottage for valentines and had a perfect weekend. The hosts are super friendly, the apartment was immaculate with every thing you could need including a hairdryer which was great. Lovely sized rooms with a great view of the fields. Couldn't ask for anything more and was great value for money. It's located perfectly too - close to a lovely traditional town and near to oxford. We recommend this place for a relaxing getaway :)
