“A peaceful country retreat!”
Reviewed 16 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Ideal location to explore Oxfordshire countryside. Comfortable accommodation for a couple or young family. Short walk to village and 4 miles to nearest park and ride. Fitted out to a high standard, easy to use heating and cooking facilities. Would have been nice to meet the owner but they trusted us enough to leave key in door on arrival and we could have contacted them if there were any real problems. A little bit of attention to detail and I would have given top marks.

“Beautiful however poor communication”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The Lodge itself is beautiful, lovely surroundings and internally very pleasing on the eye, clean and comfortable.
The reason however was for the pro communication before and during the stay.
A week before a message was sent to the owner regarding the process of picking up the keys to which this went unanswered.
The day of stay, both myself and my partner used several forms of communication to get in contact, from email, whatsapp, text message and call to the point we were considering pulling out of the booking as we were both travelling from different ends of the country.

Eventually i received a call detailing the query late in the afternoon.

Upon arrival the lodge was cold with no running water or heating, a call was made at around 5pm and was not resolved until around 10pm meaning on a cold evening there was no heat, no way of cooking or bathing.

Now this can happen and the event itself isn't contributing to the review score but again, the lack of communication, and with the details above - what felt like a complete lack of care for paying guests.

Sometimes events are out of peoples control however its the response that is remembered, personally a heartfelt apology after i know the situation is resolved and maybe something so pimple as a bottle of wine/flowers/chocolates etc - this gesture would have created a much more favourable review.

“Perfectly Peaceful”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful week while visiting family and friends. It was the perfect place to retreat to at the end of each day. We had great weather so were able to sit out and have a drink in the evenings while watching the horses, a fox and a pair of nesting (we think) pheasants.

Mark, and everyone we encountered, were friendly and helpful and we heartily recommend this rental.

Peaceful yet handy location close to Oxford. Lovely space - nice to be able to 'host' family we had come to see. Some random organisation of kitchen equipment ( e.g. glasses that only fit lying around in a drawer???) otherwise everything was fab. Will no doubt be back before the end of the year.

“Peace & Tranquility - a unique find”
Reviewed 8 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

What a fantastic place. We wanted somewhere for a short break with our dog away from a busy lifestyle. This place was a great find - a well furnished single storey property tucked away in the Oxfordshire countryside but still close enough to great facilities. A truly relaxing break was enjoyed by the three of us.
