“Wow, what a find!”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Fabulous barn conversion offering a very high standard of accommodation, with great facilities and superior finish. It had everything we could possibly want and more (the music and lighting systems were a nice addition).
Owners ensured we were happy and comfortable and then left us to enjoy this great pad with stunning views of countryside and sheep.
Would highly recommend for families, parties/small groups.
Faultless...... would come back tomorrow.

“Thoroughly relaxing place to stay”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Myself, my wife and our 2 friends have just returned from a 3 night stay at Ox house to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday and it couldn't have been more perfect.
Thoughtful touches included a hand written note from Jane welcoming us to Ox house, a welcome basket including a bottle of Prosecco ( great for starting the birthday celebrations), fresh flowers on the table and in the fridge a pint of milk.
The accommodation is beautifully decorated, fantastic bath in the upstairs bathroom and a well equipped kitchen
The setting is so peaceful, surrounded by acres of fields. Woke each morning to sheep and lambs in the nearest field.
The weather was such that we were able to make great use of the outside seating for eating and drinking but I can imagine in the cold weather sitting in front of the log burner would be just as great
Jane and Derek many thanks for everything. We just had the most chilled out and relaxing time and will hopefully come back again one day

“Beautiful property in idyllic surroundings”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I stayed here for 5 days (creative retreat with a friend), and couldn't have picked a more perfect place.
Set on 10 acres of land, its very private and peaceful, with heaps of wildlife such as sheep, foxes, rabbits, pheasants etc roaming around.

The property itself is decorated to a really high standard, well equipped kitchen, good wifi, Sonos music streaming, bbq, powerful shower, log fire etc.

The owners, Jane and Derek, are also very friendly and accommodating and gave us a warm welcome.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday or retreat, and I look forward to returning at some point.

Thanks!
Paul

“Beautiful accomodation in wonderful surroundings”
Reviewed 21 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We had a wonderful family weekend at Ox house. The accommodation is beautiful and finished to perfection. The children loved their bedroom and their special window looking over the fields! It is the perfect place to stay to explore the surrounding area and plenty of lovely places to eat and drink. The hosts very kindly came round and checked we were ok, which we thought was exceptionally nice along with the lovely gift basket! Nobody wanted to go home and we are all looking forward to our next trip to Ox House!
