“Perfect for a short stay in Oxford”

The house is clean and fully functional. Only 20 mins drive from central Oxford, it is convenient and very good value compared to staying in a hotel, with more room to offer. The owner and local housekeeper are easily contactable and very helpful. Highly recommended.

“Relaxing stay in clean, cozy country house”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The house was very clean, with a well-stocked kitchen; plenty of clean sheets and towels, and a beautifully-maintained garden. The bus system made it very easy to shuttle from Oxford to Eynsham, but walking via the Thames path is gorgeous and a must. The hosts and housekeeper were welcoming and responded quickly to any correspondence. Great for some solo time away from it all, or for a family stay. Garden, nearby playground, conveniently-located pubs and grocery store, 2-minute walk from bus stop. Would stay here again.

“Well situated for exploring the Cotswolds”

I stayed in this property for several months over the summer in order to research the area.
I have said it is good value because taking square footage into account you do get good value
The house is very well situated in the busy village of Eynsham. Although a small house, the rooms are well proportioned and the garden well planted, if very overgrown. It was a delight to sit in.
The house Is in need of some serious maintenance work. There are large holes in the walls/skirting boards (hallway and bathroom), cracks running down walls (kitchen ) and damp stains on the ceilings.
More concerning was the totally unprofessional preparation of the house for a tenant - and a tenant who was staying for several months. The windows were filthy as were the stairs, the fireplaces/grates and the radiators. ( I felt it necessary to pay professional cleaners to deep clean the house. It took two of them five hours, and they felt unable to tackle the oven) The only side lamp in the sitting room was broken and the main central light had a dead lightbulb. The curtains could not be pulled closed (easily remedied with some silicon spray). When I arrived there was a spanner/wrench in place of a lever to turn the shower off and on, apparently the appliance had been broken by outgoing tenants. I had to contact the owner about this after 5 weeks when nothing had been done about it and I had had no update. One of the electrical sockets in the kitchen was dead.
The house is very sparsely furnished ; there are no chairs upstairs and the only hanging space is either side of the boiler in the airing cupboard on the landing, or hooks on the backs of doors.There is no storage space in the bathroom. The two chairs in the sitting room are small, (uncomfortable)bedroom chairs and the 'leather' sofa too small for two people to sit on comfortably. What furniture there is , is very dilapidated. The beds however, are very comfortable.
There is a very good fridge/freezer, but the rest of the appliances are very old and need replacing . The tumble dryer is in a very dirty wood/ garden shed.
As the owner of a holiday rental myself, I know that this little house could be made very comfortable and certainly SHOULD be made spotless and fully functional before the arrival of each new tenant.

It is worth mentioning that there are serious roadworks ( due to continue until September 2016) taking place on the main routes into Oxford from Eynsham which cause huge delays morning and late afternoon.
