Sweetly peaceful yet 5 miles from Oxford, a delicious thatched cottage with local breakfasts and both Cotswolds and Chilterns nearby

You are a short step from a village with an excellent pub (return across fields with a torch). Or treat yourself to dinner at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. Katrina’s delicious thatched cottage sits down a quiet lane. Through your own entrance find a guest dining room with armchairs by the old range, interesting prints and paintings, an eclectic mix of antiques and contemporary furniture. Bedrooms are warm, comfortable and stylish with views over the garden; shower rooms (not huge) are brand new and deeply smart. Breakfast, unhurried and bristling with local produce, sets walkers up for the Chiltern Way and the Ridgeway.

  • Willow Cottage is ideally located in the heart of beautiful ‘Midsomer Murders’ filming country, within easy reach of a large number of tourist attractions.
  • The cottage makes an ideal base for those dining at Raymond Blanc’s ‘Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons’, which lies less than three miles away.
  • The dreaming spires of Oxford are 20 minutes drive away, whilst there are a large number of country houses and gardens within easy driving distance. Most notably, Winston Churchill's birthplace, Blenheim Palace, is nearby.
  • We are five minutes walk from the charming, cricket-themed pub, ‘The Bat & Ball’, and there are many other excellent dining options nearby.
  • The cottage makes a wonderful retreat for walkers exploring both the Chilterns and the Cotswolds.

"a very nice and relax place. the rooms are immaculate and the breakfast was great. I wished we could stay longer to enjoy the area and the Cottage. the host is very friendly and the space is lovely with great garden to walk around. I recommend the place 100%. it is worth the search and it is near Oxford. "

"we stayed 2 nights and enjoyed very much our short stay. Katrina made us feel comfortable and surprised us with a delicious breakfast. Very quiet location, perfect for people who love the countryside and it is close to Oxford."

"A delight, down a quiet lane, away from everything (including mobile phone reception). Inside tons of character and hardly anything exactly square or level - as we like. Katrina welcomed us warmly and quickly organized a taxi when we needed one. The bedroom windows peep out under the thatch, but there’s plenty of room to stretch out, a comfortable bed, good heating and shower, and interesting books. A great spot to stay for Oxford by car or dining at Raymond Blanc’s. A sociable and tasty breakfast around the big table included Katrina’s famous sausages. We enjoyed 2 nights and will return."

"Stayed overnight with my husband on our way back to Ireland from a visit to my brother in Kent. It is a magical place, so peaceful and comfortable - just as I had imagined an English Country Cottage! We sat in the beautiful garden in the evening sipping wine watching a squirrel play hide and seek! Dinner in The Mole (recommended by Katrina) was delicious and breakfast the next morning was equally so. Would highly recommend this place :) "

"Delightful and peaceful cottage. We slept better than we had done for weeks. The room was very comfortable, with views across the garden and fields beyond, and it had the advantage of a modern powerful shower. Breakfast the following morning was delicious, eggs and bacon, hot toast and marmalade, and piping hot coffee to help us clear the sleepy dust from our eyes and start the day. An added bonus is the owner has three lovely friendly labradors. "

"Lovely cottage convenient for Oxford. Excellent bedroom and en suite. Good pubs nearby. Breakfast okay but could do with larger cereal choice. Lovely garden. Owner has dogs which we do not mind but some might. Wifi in dining room."
