Property code: CC101

This accommodation is one five welcoming lodges set in a 4-acre garden found along the river banks of the Cherwell. Sleeping six guests, it’s a great family holiday choice.

Located 2.5 miles from the vibrant, historical Oxford, you certainly won’t be lost for interesting places to visit. The famous university that dates back to 1188 and has produced some of the world’s greatest minds. Visitor attractions include so many of the country’s most attractive architecture such as The Bodleian Library, Pitt Rivers Museum and The Ashmolean. The views across the rooftops from Carfax Tower or St Mary the Virgin worth the long ascent up stone staircases. A camera is essential needless to say. Why not embark on a trip in a punt from Folly Bridge to pretty Iffley Lock; take a trip on a tourist bus, or take a long stroll through Christchurch Meadows? There is an endless selection of historical places to check out on your stay near Oxford. Situated on a 4-acre estate on the banks of the River Cherwell, you have the best of both worlds – a city on your doorstep, yet a good countryside feeling too.

On entry to the lodge, through a roomy lobby hall, 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’s worth 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 of with a queen-size bed and 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 holiday lodge is further access to four acres of gardens across a lovely lawn. Full of neat flora and fauna, it’s a very pleasant spot to recharge and make plans for the rest of the stay in Oxford. There is also ample parking nearby. Each lodge has its own private garden area and access to the riverside gardens which are set behind a private gated entrance. Please enquire in advance if you’d like to punt or fish on site as it can be arranged for you, as well as weekly cleaning, secretarial, and an advance grocery order service.

A really comfortable stay. Beds very comfortable, and lots of room to spread out. Our lodge was very private, with a wonderful view over the river. Plenty of parking for extended family stays. Barry and Lyn are great hosts and we hope to return.

Spacious and welcoming lodges nicely spaced out on the 3 acres site. Lodge 3 had it's own private garden stretching down to the river, a delightful spot from which to watch the ducks, geese, rabbits (and Pete the peacock). The owners are rightly proud of the very well appointed lodges, located in an idyllic spot on the outskirts of Oxford. Would hiRead moreghly recommend. Hide

A very delightful cottage. Spacious warm and comfortable. Lodge 3, being nearest to the river had a lovely private back garden to chill and have the company of ducks and wildlife. A place to unwind and simply relax with you and your family. We went there with my elderly mum who thoughly enjoyed herself. Many thanks go to Barry and Lyn The owners.

Lovely lodge with view down to the river. Daily entertainment from the resident ducks and peacock in the garden. Spacious and comfortable accommodation. Barry and Lyn were very welcoming and extremely helpful throughout our stay. Good location to stay in if you want to explore Oxford and the Cotswolds. Would recommend.

Lovely accommodation, great setting with the River Cherwell at the bottom of a private garden allocated to Lodge 3. Very well equipped - even with a food processor! Towels provided excellent size and quality. Good location to visit the area - without too much travelling.

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?
