  • Tasteful and inviting lodge on the banks of the river Cherwell
  • Idyllic, riverside location but close to the historic city of Oxford 
  • A haven for those looking for a relaxing holiday, fishing, punting or enjoying the wildlife
Property code: CC103

This lovely holiday lodge is one of five situated in a riverside habitat on the River Cherwell close to Oxford. Sleeping six, it’s a superb location for family holidays.

Near to the edge of the city of Oxford, you definitely won’t be short of 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 Bodleian Library, Pitt Rivers Museum and The Ashmolean should be high on the list of any Oxford sights - a camera is essential. There are shops galore at the centre of Oxford too; if you like reading the choice of bookshops is bottomless but there is a very broad range of pubs, restaurants, shops, theatres and cinemas to visit. Take a punt from Folly Bridge to pretty Iffley Lock on a sunny day; or board an open-top bus to see the sights, or you could even enjoy a massive picnic in Christchurch Meadows. There is a large selection of historical places to check out on your stay near Oxford. Situated on a pleasant estate on the shore of the River Cherwell, you have the best of both worlds – a city on your doorstep, yet it still retains a country vibe.

Enter the holiday cabin via a hallway and you will reach the spacious open plan living area. The lounge/kitchen/diner is roomy and light. The lounge area has ample comfortable seating for unwinding in front of the TV/DVD at the end of a day’s touring. Nearby is a dining table for six guests. The kitchen area includes electric oven and gas hob, microwave, hi-fi, 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 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 full width of the lodge. Packed with neat flora and fauna, the shared garden is a beguiling spot to recoup and make plans for the rest of the holiday stay in Oxford and the surrounding area. There is also ample parking nearby. Every lodge has its own garden area, with furniture and a BBC, and access to the riverside grounds located via a private entrance. Please enquire in advance if you’d like to go punting or enjoy some fishing on site as it can be arranged for you, as well as weekly cleaning, secretarial, and an advance grocery order service.

We loved the lodge and Barry and Lyn were great. With regard to the location though you cant really walk anywhere from the property because of the main road we thought it was too dangerous so you have to drive. It wasnt a problem for us though. Also a book of useful local information would have been helpful along with a bit of history about the plaRead morece. Barry told us lots and it was really interesting. Hide

Can not find anything bad to say - from the moment we arrived and have been greeted by the owners to the time we had to leave it was a very pleasant stay. The accommodation is done to a very high standard, we even had a welcome cake and milk left in the fridge. It is set by a riverbank and if the weather permits will be amazing to spend time by it.Read more The complex is just off A40 and you can hear the noise but it is a small price to pay for an excellent location otherwise.

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?
