“Relaxing getaway”
Reviewed 18 March 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Best way to describe this would be a self catering apartment with the feel of a luxury hotel suite. Beautifully converted and hi-spec decor, comfortable and well stocked with a relaxing stay in mind. Definate return in the future with friends to stay in one of the other properties.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 16 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

What a great little studio cottage in a great location with everything you need. The 4 poster bed not only looked romantic and cute but was very comfortable.This was a lovely place to spend a relaxing and enjoyable break and we even had snow to add to the ambience of this lovely location. Barry was the perfect host who went out of his way to ensure your comfort and needs were well and truly met. The local pub was warm and friendly with great food, good atmosphere and a great pint of beer!
This was a very memorable 18 day stay, which we will always remember.
We will definately recommend this stay to our friends in Australia....
Many thanks Barry.

It's been a few months since our visit, but my review is better late than never, and besides, it is well deserved by the proprietor.

We booked both of these cozy little cottages for a five night stay while we were travelling between Banbury and Stratford upon Avon for a wedding and to visit with family,

From the moment we booked with Barry he was very helpful in making sure we would be comfortable and know our way to the cottages. He even offered to meet us in town which was quite nice as coming in from Canada with two teens on a plane then driving for a few hours north from the airport on the wrong side of the road was quite draining!

We were anxious to catch up with family though, so we still went out to the local pub that night., but not for too long :)

Needless to say we were wiped in the morning, so waking up to a basket of fresh croissants, cheese, butter, jam and orange juice was amazing.

During our stay Barry made us feel very welcome and was always helpful. Just a few highlights of what our wonderful host did for us (and this was just in five days);
Barry offered to pick us up groceries as he knew we were tired; he also drove into Banbury just so we could follow him to the shopping district; my wife didn't have time to have her dress for the wedding altered before we left, and he knew just the place to send us; at the last minute before we left Canada we found out that my wife's sister was stuck for a place to stay so Barry offered her a room in his home (it's not typical for him to let it, but it seems to be in his nature to go out of his way to be helpful); he offered to take my wife’s sister to the train station when she wanted to tour Oxford...I think you get the picture, Barry is a proprietor, a host, a concierge, and a friend all rolled into one.

I would absolutely go back. The location in great for venturing many places, the cottages are fabulous and Barry is wonderful. He is a fond memory of our vacation

“We will return again for sure”
Reviewed 4 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

The cottage was idyllic and to a very high standard. Great location with the added bonus of being close to a lovely, local pub.
Barry was very accomodating and was there for our every need. The cottage is close to Banbury for shopping and not too far from Stratford Upon Avon and other historical places.
Can certainly recommend the cottage to others and we hope to return soon.
