Description

***FLAT RATE ONE NIGHT STAY IS £110 PLEASE SUBMIT ENQUIRY FOR A QUOTE IN ORDER TO BOOK***

Surprisingly spacious and versatile residence in the Northbourne Conservation Area of Didcot dating back to 1874. Location is perfect for families because this is cul-de-sac, and there is not much traffic on the street. Originally a 2-bed cottage, the house benefits from many extensions and conversions carried out over a number of years. The property has a newly-installed heating system and Bosch boiler, newly fitted shaker style kitchen with in-built Bosch appliances, and new double glazing throughout. There are two reception rooms on the ground floor, kitchen and breakfast room, two bedrooms (king and double beds) and a spacious bathroom on the first floor, and a loft converted into the kids den (ages 5-12) on the second floor (two single beds *not suitable for adults*). Ground floor has a sofa bed which can be used to accommodate more guests.

Outside there is a mature garden

Ground floor has a sofa bed which can be used to accommodate more guests.

Outside there is a mature garden at the back with patio area and a good sized area for children to play (outdoor toys and sand pit provided). Guests can park just outside the property on the street. There is no residents parking scheme in Didcot, so you can park your car anywhere except the usual double-lines/dropped curb etc.

SUMMER BOOKINGS ARE WEEKLY RENTALS ONLY

Parking

Didcot is a parking permit free zone, but you still need to observe a few simple rules: do not park in the turning areas, do not park on the double yellow lines, and do not obstruct anyone's driveway. It is possible to park outside the house *provided* you leave enough space to our neighbour to navigate out of his driveway next to the property. As a guide and to avoid the hassle of having to move your car, if you want to park just in front of the house please do so before the rubbish bins in the front garden which should leave adequate space.

Kids Amenities that we can provide *upon request*:

spacious cot

M&P highchair stair gates for bottom/top of stairs (can be removed - just tell us!)

electric steriliser

bottle warmer

playpen or gate separating two reception rooms

There is 32" HD TV with freeview channels in the living room now, BluRay player, a small library of DVDs, computer games, books, board games, and a box of toys for your entertainment.

Although this is a self-catering holiday let, we still offer you continental breakfast consisting of Kellogg's cereal packs, muesli, choco pops, frosties, sealed jam portions, sugar syrup, marmite, nutella, honey. There is a supply of tea, sugar, and coffee which you are welcome to. Sainsburys is just 5 mins walk away to pick up your milk and fresh croissants.

“Good accomodation, easy to feel at home.”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2016

We enjoyed our stay at the property. The owner was very helpful. It was a good base for exploring the immediate area and further away places.

“Very comfortable stay in a very convienent location”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2014

This was a last minute Valentines booking for myself and partner and we were pleasently surprised! The Shire Cottage has a very natural and homely feel to it and it was like taking over someones house for weekend! The Cottage is very clean and inviting and nice family sized house, it was a pleasure to stay there! Olga the host was very accommodating and even left a box of Chocolate Truffles and a Bottle of Bubbly for our arrival which was a nice touch! Would definitely stay again!
