“Delightful Cottage - Well Situated for Oxford, Woodstock, and Witney”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2014

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.
