Sunny double bedroom with private bathroom and breakfast/TV room in owners' home. Direct access upstairs from the porch. Breakfast will include homemade marmalade and a choice of hot and cold food.
We are happy to give lifts to Oxford Airport (5 minutes by car).
Lovely walks and the National Cycle Network on the door-step.
Direct bus route to Oxford and Woodstock at the end of the Lane (a 4 minute walk).
Guests have their own bathroom and breakfast/TV room adjacent to the bedroom. The bedroom faces south and overlooks the lane and a copse of trees opposite whilst the breakfast/TV room overlooks our back garden and a mature walnut tree. The bathroom is between the two rooms.
Guests have sole access to the bedroom, bathroom and breakfast/TV room on the first floor. Breakfast will be served upstairs in the breakfast room. Tea and coffee facilities are provided in the room along with a TV and a selection of maps and guides to the area available to borrow. Owners' accommodation is off-limits although guests are welcome to enjoy breakfast in the garden on warm, sunny mornings if they wish.
Interaction with guests
The owners (Jenny & Rob) and their two Labradors also live in the house although the dogs have their own space downstairs away from guests. We will be around to help with directions on where to go and the nicest way of getting there! There's a lovely pub that serves meals throughout the day and evening in the village and another just down the road in the next village (Yarnton). Woodstock also has a wide selection of pubs and fine dining.
Other things to note
We offer homemade cake on arrival and at tea-time each day if desired.
This is a no-smoking home.
Pets are welcome but please bring their own beds/rugs to sleep on (not the bed!) and wipe paws in the porch before going upstairs.
The house generally goes to sleep about 11.30 pm.
We will agree with you what time you would like breakfast in your breakfast room.
Please check in after 4.00 pm on day of arrival and leave by 11.00 on the day of departure.
Bilingual in English and French, I worked until recently for an international development agency, based in Oxford, but also travelling to Africa, Asia and Latin America. I am now based at home with my husband Rob who runs his own business and we are quite involved in the life of our village, especially the little Norman church where Rob is a Churchwarden and I am Treasurer. I love home-cooking, making jams, chutneys and marmalade and walking our two labrador dogs. We have a lovely garden with a walnut tree and a lot of wildlife, especially birds. I also write short stories and have some published on Kindle!
