Interaction with guest

We like meeting our guests and have met many friendly and interesting people from all around the world. The annexe is detached but in the grounds of the property where we live with our children and dog and we enjoy having friendly people who enjoy the countryside, children and animals. We aim to provide clean, warm, good quality accommodation in a tranquil setting for people who enjoy the countryside and outdoor life. We always aim to be friendly and helpful and are delighted to suggest things to do. We have made good friends with many guests in our 4 years of doing this. Equally we are very happy to respect the privacy of people who want to keep themselves to themselves

“Too much wrong”

Reviewed 28 Dec 2016

No complaints on location. would be a squash with four people. Only one settee, would have to bring chair from bedroom to eat together. Pop-up plug in basin stayed popped up and had to wash under running water. Toilet seat kept slipping, very worrying. Half the light bulbs out! Could not dry hair in front of mirror plug too far away. I could go on and on. Needs serious but minor work done. Used it as a short term rent between houses. Wanted no worries!!!!!!!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. I am sorry that the plug in the baisn would not stay down. I ordered a new one which was fitted as soon as it arrived. Again apologies that the toilet seat moved. I did come and repair this as soon as you told me and it is now solidly in place. Unfortunately 2 light bulbs had gone. I replaced one but had difficulty removing the fitting for the other. This was one of many lights in the room so I hope it wasn't too much of a problem. I hope that your house move went well. Best wishes. Jonathan

“Plenty of space - but.....”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2016

This property offered the biggest bedroom we have seen in rented accommodation and had a fairly decent sized kitchen/diner/lounge. A big plus was a washing machine, with lots of drying racks. The views across adjoining fields were wonderful. However it missed the mark in so many ways. First impressions were exceptionally disappointing with paths full of weeds and flowers/rose bushes overgrowing, meaning to get to the door we had to drag our suitcases across the lawn. The door to the accommodation has obviously swollen over time making it difficult to open. Cobwebs were across a number of the light fittings (three of which had globes not working), the oven was not as clean as we would like and the sofa in the lounge, apart from being extremely uncomfortable, needed food scraps/crumbs vacuumed off. The bathroom is tiny, very dark and has no window or ventilation excpet a very small fan. The owner, however, did quickly rectify the broken toilet seat we found on arrival. There was no power in the bathroom for a hairdryer (the only easily accessed power for a hairdryer was not even near a mirror). In the bedroom we found one of the central supports for the mattress was broken meaning the bed sagged. And the pillows were very very flat and uncomfortable, and in our opinion definitely need replacing. We found the property OK to find in daylight, but I would think in the dark people will struggle. If you do go to the pub across the road take a torch as there is no driveway lighting. Please note this is not a tatched rental, but is an annexe over the garage to the tatched property. This really disappointed, and we noted that other guests had also gained the impression that the rental was tatched. For those with physical impairment please note that there are steep stairs. Internet was available but a bit patchy. It would be useful if there were instructions on the property for use of various facilities, especially the heating system.

Owner's reply: thank you for the review Mike. I am sorry that you felt the garden was overgrown. We had a number of flowers alongside the annexe wall that survived very late into the Autumn given the mild weather we had. As they were bringing lots of colour we didn't want to cut them back but I do recognise they were spreading onto the path. Since the frost finally got them they are all cut right back now. We look forward to a fresh bloom in spring. The bed had unfortunately been moved and the central support needed adjusting as it got bent. This has been fixed. It is a very good quality, king size bed from John Lewis with a good quality new mattress. People tell us that they find the bed very comfortable but I know beds and pillows are a very personal thing. We have put in some additional pillows however to give people and option of the types of pillows they prefer. We do live in a village with no street lighting so I agree that it does get dark at night. We do provide a torch and 2 outside lights. I am looking at replacing the floodlight at the front of the house. Re the heating we do leave simple instructions in the document that we send to all guests about how to turn up and down the thermostat. We find this works well and avoids the problems that can occur when people try and change the programmes on the thermostat We do try to make it clear that the apartment is on the first floor and that it is not therefore suitable for people with physical impairments. We welcome comments and look to keep improving the property. We have just ordered a new sofa bed. Although the existing one is only a few years old the cushions have not worn well so we are replacing with a new and very comfortable sofa. I am sorry you found some cobwebs. We pride ourself on the apartment being very clean so we will try extra hard to spot these in the future Thanks again for your feedback Best wishes Jonathan and Tais

“Charming apartment in a beautiful countryside”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2016

We found Old Lane Cottage to be a very peaceful and cozy place within an idyllic village. From cottage windows, there is a beautiful view to the garden and across the fields. We were travelling with two children and there was enough space for the whole family. The apartment was well-equipped and had a new washing machine. Our host Jonathan was very helpful and friendly. He proactively provided instructions and promptly answered our questions. This a good location for day trips with plenty of attractions within a reasonable distance.

“Beautiful cozy apartment”

Reviewed 2 Mar 2014

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 :)
