We have parking for 7 cars for both cottages, plus over spill parking if needed. We also have a games room available to our guests, with fitness equipment, table tennis, darts and pool.

The Stables is a beautiful stone built Cotswold cottage surrounded by fields and the stunning Oxfordshire countryside. It is ideally situated as a base for exploring the Cotswold region and is convenient for visiting both Oxford and Cheltenham. The historic town of Burford is less than a 10 minute drive away and the beautiful villages of Alvescot and Shilton are only a mile away. Both these villages have terrific pubs which can be reached by public footpaths and bridleways. The Cotswolds is a fantastic region for a great holiday, with plenty of historic places to visit and beautiful villages and countryside. Oxford's architecture is stunning and definitely worth seeing. The cottage is in open countryside, but still 5 minutes from local amenities.

The cottage is 5 minutes from the fabulous Cotswolds Wildlife Park. The animals are housed in the extensive grounds of an old manor house. The variety of animals is impressive and the gardens are stunning. There is a great play area and cafe.

There are great opportunities for walkers and cyclists, both locally and throughout the region. The cottage is close to Burford, Witney Lakes and Lynham Golf Courses and there are a number of horse riding stables in the region. There are spectacular landscapes and wildlife for artists and photographers.

The Stables is within easy reach of the superb shopping centres of Oxford, Cheltenham and the Bicester Retail Village. Witney is local too and it has a great new centre with shops, restaurants and a cinema.

“Fabulous base for exploring the Cotswolds”

Reviewed 12 May 2014

We stayed in The Stables , one of 2 holiday cottages in this peaceful rural location. The cottage is equipped to the highest standard and tastefully decorated and furnished. As guests we were also allowed the use of the games room and personal fitness equipment . The owners are on site and we found them extremely helpful regarding places of interest in the surrounding area. The cottage is "pet friendly" and we took our Labrador on holiday with us , there are lots of good walks in this area . We are looking forward to returning this summer.

Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you want to come back.

“The perfect home from home in the days before our wedding!”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2013

I stayed at the Stables and Granary with my extended family in the days leading up to our wedding in Witney. The location was perfect for me to be able to escape the wedding madness but also be close enough to shops for those last minute purchases! The owners were very helpful in the months before and were always quick to reply to my emails and many questions. Now that we know this gem exists we shall certainly recommend it to family and friends when their relatives come to visit!

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and that the cottages worked so well with your wedding plans. It's an exciting, but stressful time for sure! We are also glad the wedding went well and would love a photo if you have time to email one. We would be delighted to welcome you or your friends and family back, so do stay in touch.

“Comfortable and fun for all the family”

Reviewed 1 Jun 2013

The Stables was a fantastic cottage for our stay in the Cotswolds. The cottage was extremely well presented and equipped. Our party was made up of 2 families with 2 children and 2 toddlers. Everyone enjoyed their stay. The older children loved their loft bedroom and the toy chests were a perfect addition to the experience. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment, though the abundance of local takeaways and pubs made it easy not to have to cook anyway. The games room and gym was a fantastic bonus, with a lovely range of activities to borrow and keep the little ones (and not so little ones!) entertained. The weather wasn't great when we stayed, but we still had fun packed days out at Bourton-on-the-Water, Legoland and the Cotswolds Wildlife Park. We also enjoyed some lovely country walks from the doorstep and the cottage was a homely, cosy place to relax after a tiring day. Thankyou - we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to others!!

Thank you for your kind words. We are so pleased that you and your family had a good time. You mentioned during your stay about how light the rooms are and how that may affect children sleeping- thank you for the feedback, which is always welcome. It is a south facing cottage, which is good in one way, but we understand the point completely. We have curtains and blinds already as you know, but they are light in colour to keep the cottage cheerful, so we have fitted black out linings to the curtains and we have ordered a black out blind in a dark colour for the large rooflight in the loft bedroom. Hopefully, that means it will be bright and cheerful during the day, but dark when you want it to be too. Many thanks again for your constructive feedback- much appreciated.

“Calm retreat in great tourist location, spacious, well laid out & clean.”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2013

Owners were very helpful in the lead-up to stay, answering all emails in a friendly, polite manner _ thank you! I stayed with a group of friends as weekend away before sister's wedding. Easy to find the cottages by postcode alone & lots of parking (even though we had 5 cars & there were people staying next door!) Supermarket delivery found us no problem. Lots of dining/kitchen ware which is handy as we stayed in both nights. Rooms comfortable & bathrooms on both floors ideal. Clean & crsiply decorated. We were very fortunate with weather when there (it's been awful recently) which meant it was actually on the warm side & also the light curtains/blinds made a lie-in difficult. I've noted to myself that I should take a portable blackout with me though as I'm a bit fussy! It would be an ideal layout for a family too - loved the toy chests, so may well be back with my little one & friends/family! Can't believe we didn't make it to the games room (one of the reasons I chose this property) - too busy gassing! During the day we went to Witney Lakes Resort, as recommended - very pleasant & only a short drive - & Woodstock/Blenheim - quite a long drive but always worth going out of your way for. Also went for a walk/lunch in Lechlade on departure which was lovely.

Thank you for your kind comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay.

“great location, lovely property”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2012

This is a lovely modern cottage but with character. The location is great, on the outskirts of a village with good local ameneities e.g. supermarket, petrol station etc. but you feel like you are in the countryside as the cottage is surrounded by fields with great walking opportunities.

Thanks for your review. Just so you know that we have purchased new quilts in response to your comments, which were very useful.
