Property code: CC102

This welcoming holiday lodge is one of five situated along the river bank of the Cherwell on a small estate. Sleeping six guests, it’s a location for family holiday.

Located a short drive from the interesting city of Oxford, you will never be lost for great places to visit and see. The world-renowned university dates back as far as 1188 and has produced some of the world’s greatest minds. The city’s major attractions include so many eye catching architectural wonders such as The Bodleian Library, Pitt Rivers Museum and The Ashmolean. A camera is essential, needless to say. There are shops galore in the centre of Oxford too, if you like reading the choice of bookshops is bottomless. Why not embark on a trip in a punt from Folly Bridge to pretty Iffley Lock; take a trip on a tourist bus, or have a picnic in Christchurch Meadows? There is a large selection of historical places to check out on your stay near Oxford. Situated on a lovely, secluded estate on the banks of the River Cherwell, you have the best of both worlds – a city on your doorstep, yet it still retains that rural feel.

On arrival at the property, enter through a hallway and you will reach the large open plan living area. The lounge/kitchen/diner is spacious and light. 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. Close by is a dining table large enough for six guests. The kitchen area includes electric oven and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher, hi-fi and fridge/freezer. There is a  utility room containing a washing machine and tumble dryer on site. The three bedrooms includes two doubles, one of with a queen-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with a 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 a veranda that runs the width of the lodge. Full of neat flora and fauna the shared garden is a very pleasant spot to recharge and make plans for the rest of the stay in Oxford. There is also ample parking nearby. Every lodge has its own garden area, with garden furniture and a BBQ, and access to the riverside gardens located through a private entrance. Please enquire in advance if you’d like to go punting or fish on site as it can be arranged for you, as well as weekly cleaning, secretarial, and an advance grocery order service.

Lovely chalet-type property. It is in an enclave backing on to the river and has exotic birds and poultry wandering around (we woke up to a peacock on our verandah most days). Convenient for access to Oxford, Blenheim, punting on the Cherwell and the only crocodile zoo in the UK. Great lunch at The Nut Tree Inn (one michelin star), 20 minutes driveRead more away. Property is comfortable, clean, well-equipped and value for money. Owners are helpful. Great family holiday. Hide

The lodge was very well equipped and was in a great location to explore nearby Oxford and The Cotswolds. Barry and Lynne were excellent hosts, always available to offer recommendations for places to visit and local information.

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?
