Property code: CC001

One of five well-ordered, three-bedroom lodges in idyllic setting on the banks of the River Cherwell. Sleeping six guests, it’s the perfect family getaway.

The world-famous city of Oxford with its university dates to 1188 and produced some of the planet’s greatest minds. Visitor attractions include many of the city’s beautiful buildings such as The Bodleian Library, The Sheldonian Theatre and The Ashmolean Museum, all of which are incredible. The views across the rooftops from Carfax Tower or the church tower of St Mary the Virgin are well worth the hundreds of stairs you need to climb! Don’t forget the camera. Take a trip along the river from Folly Bridge to pretty Iffley Lock; walk through Christchurch Meadows or jump on a ‘hop on hop off’ open top bus. There are hundreds of places of interest to experience when you stay at one of our Oxfordshire holiday cottages, set within 4-acres of riverside grounds at the very edge of Oxford City giving you that rural feeling.

On arrival at the property, through a spacious entrance hall, guests can find a large open plan living area. The lounge/kitchen/diner looks out over a large lawn area and a comfortable veranda. The lounge area has comfortable seating and TV/DVD to unwind in front of at the end of the day. On the other side of the living space is a dining area with a table for six diners. The kitchen comes equipped with an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, hi-fi and fridge/freezer. There is a  utility room for those that wish to make use of washing machine and separate tumble dryer. The three bedrooms include two doubles, one of which contains a queen-size bed and access to an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. The third bedroom is a twin. Nearby is the main bathroom with a shower over bath and WC.

Outside the lodge is a shared lawn and access to four acres of riverside gardens. Full of bird life and wildlife it’s a quiet spot to kick back and relax, reflect on the day’s exploration or making plans for the rest of the stay in Oxford. There is also ample parking nearby. Some lodges in the complex have riverside views, while each has a private garden area with furniture and a BBQ, and access to the riverside gardens which are set behind a private gated entrance. A punt or fishing can be arranged in advance (please enquire), as well as weekly cleaning, secretarial, and an advance grocery services order.

1 The Lodge is one of 5 substantial chalets, the only one with river frontage. The owners house is on site but they were unobtrusive. The Muscovy ducks, Canada geese and peacock made an attractive garden outlook but their deposits render it unusable for childrens play. The chalet is large, comfortable and mostly well furnished and equipped. LocatedRead more directly on busy, noisy dual carriageway. Crossing it is risky. Large municipal park nearby was useful for exercise and kids play. Hide

The lodge was lovely (Lodge 2) and had lots of space for our group of 5. We didnt find the double bed in the second bedroom very comfortable for 2 adults sadly. We loved the veranda and our visits from the resident peacock. Another bonus was the fact we could open the windows really wide to get air in (it was a hot week!). We had worried about roadRead more noise but found it wasnt intrusive at all. Hide

The Cotswolds is home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous villages in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings provide a quintessential English charm found no-where else in the world and offer a plethora of welcoming pubs, tiny tearooms and quaint streets to explore.

Once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England’, the chocolate box village of Bibury is one of England’s most iconic hamlets, home to the peaceful River Coln and some of the most photographed houses in the country. The famous Arlington Row is a sight to behold - this row of 14th century weaver’s cottages have been the foundation of Bibury for hundreds of years and is instantly recognisable as a symbol of the Cotswold District.

If you’re seeking a relaxing day of sightseeing, shopping and traditional tearooms, head to the charming town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in Roman Britain. Proclaiming the title "The Capital of the Cotswolds", its market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England) and can be easily reached from our self-catering accommodation in Bibury, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

The rolling Cotswolds countryside is never too far away from your cosy holiday cottage, so you can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure pursuits including those at The Cotswold Waterpark. This popular tourist destination in Gloucestershire is home to 150 glorious lakes where angling, archery, wakeboarding, windsurfing, birdwatching and even rally driving can be experienced. On a balmy summers day, the Cotswold Country Park and Beach is the place to go, boasting the largest inland beach in the UK.

When it comes to attractions in the Cotswolds, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Grab a stylish bargain at Bicester shopping village, talk a walk on the wild side at Longleat Safari Park, experience a day at the races in Cheltenham, admire colourful blooms at Westonbirt Arboretum, keep the kids entertained at the Cotswolds Farm Park, take a tour around Gloucester Cathedral, and enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea at Blenheim Palace. That’s just for starters, there’s plenty more things to see and do in the Cotswolds and you will love them all! Our holiday homes in the Cotswolds are the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration, why not have a browse?
