Property code: CC002

One of five characterful three-bedroom lodges in a lush green setting along the river banks of the Cherwell. Sleeping six guests, it’s a very pleasant holiday choice.

Close to the historical city and academic haven of Oxford with its university that dates back to 1188 and has produced some of the world’s wisest and great. Visitor attractions include many of the city’s beautiful buildings such as The Bodleian Library, Pitt Rivers Museum and The Ashmolean. The views across the rooftops from Carfax Tower or the church tower of St Mary the Virgin are well worth the long climb. A camera is essential as you’ll be snapping non-stop. Take a trip along the river from Folly Bridge to pretty Iffley Lock; take a trip on a tourist bus, or commandeer a punt and glide through Christchurch Meadows. There are hundreds of points of historical interest to experience when you stay at one of our Oxfordshire holiday cottages, set within four acres of riverside grounds at the very edge of Oxford.

On entry to the lodge, through a lobby, you will find a large open plan living space. The lounge/kitchen/diner is airy and welcoming. The lounge area has comfy places to sit and unwind in front of the TV/DVD at the end of a day of exploration. A few feet away is the dining area with a table large enough for six diners. The kitchen area is equipped with electric oven and gas hob, hi-fi, microwave, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer. There is a utility room containing a washing machine and tumble dryer. The three bedrooms includes two doubles, one with a queen-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with shower. The third bedroom is a twin. Nearby is the main bathroom with a shower over bath and WC.

Outside the accommodation is a lawn and further access to four acres of gardens. Full of bird life, it’s a quaint spot to recharge and make 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 cottage has its own private garden area with garden 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 advance grocery order services.

You are close to the road and whilst noise was not a problem for us it effectively means that you cannot walk anywhere. Lodge itself was very good and location for Oxford excellent.

This was a chilling holiday with friends. We couldnt have asked for a better place. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. We will return.

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?
