"The perfect get away…"

Prior to Booking: The owners of Ox House made making our booking easy, hassle free and efficient. Jane who handled our enquiry from start to finish was extremely helpful, explaining everything that would be required to secure our booking, answering all of our questions, and, ensuring that she was in a position to offer us what we were looking for. Booking form was easy to complete and Jane confirmed receipt of funds promptly – which is always a relief. Arrival: Jane had provided a good level of detail, the map was clear and driving instructions easy to follow. One note would be that the sign for Ox House can be missed, as you drive by it, if the nearby hedge is needing a trim, or, if you are not watching out for it. Never the less, we found the property just where it aught to be, and, keys etc easily located as per the clear directions given in advance. Ox House is simply stunning, as a barn conversion the Architects are to be commended on their work. The property looks simply perfect from outside, and, the surrounding scenery is Picturesque with a hint of majestic simplicity. The local environment is both peaceful and charming, offering fantastic views across the countryside, a real escape from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. Staying at Ox House: The home is especially well appointed, the information provided by the owners for guests really does understate the enormous effort that has clearly been put into making this property a home. This truly is a “labour of love” as has been written, with fine attention to detail and all the amenities needed to mean you’d never need to leave the home if you did not wish to. Whilst quintessentially traditional, the home boasts a subtle yet impressive array of modern touches to compliment any stay; from a Sonos Play5 sound system to good quality WiFi internet which we had no issues using whilst staying. The log burning fire was a real treat and added the perfect touch to our evenings. Jane had left a welcome pack which included far more than the essentials. Ox House comes fully supplied with everything you might need to make yourself at home, but, as with everything its the attention to detail and – the little things, that make a stay memorable. Ox House certainly was this for us, and, we’ll be back! Surrounding Area: The local area offers perfect walking territory, with two excellent local public houses both offering friendly locally sourced food to a mind blowing quality. We very much enjoyed walking through the fields, sitting out on the decking and even relaxing in the living area. Bottom Line: If you are looking to relax, take it easy, lose yourself in a picture perfect home without travelling for hours upon end, but also like the little things in life that make living that little more comfortable, then Ox House is your perfect get away… Neil Barnfather MBE

Thank you so much for your wonderful and comprehensive review!
