“Our all-time favourite stay!”
Reviewed 18 February 2018 for a stay in August 2017

Lavender Cottage is a real gem, fully renovated, in a lovely, friendly little village. The fabulous kitchen overlooks the garden with its huge feature birch tree and all the rooms are beautifully appointed and a generous size. The cottage was impeccably clean with everything we could possibly need. Even more delightful than the cottage are the hosts, Mery and Jane. These two are beyond super hosts, they're in a galaxy of their own. They are generous and helpful, and took care of us wonderfully without ever intruding. The village is ideally located in the magnificent Oxfordshire countryside, with a great farm shop nearby. There is easy access to the train at Banbury for Oxford and London, or the North. We absolutely loved it!

“Beautiful cottage, lovely location and warm welcome. Perfect!”
Reviewed 15 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The cottage was in a picturesque location and in a lovely rural village. There were two pubs within walking distance (for adults) and plenty of country walks. The cottage itself was decorated in a modern yet comfortable style and every thing you needed was there. There was space to sit outside and eat as well as a mini 'secret garden' at the back, which the kids loved. We could easily have stayed longer and would definitely recommend it.

“Beautiful, charming cottage - wonderful stay, can't wait to go back next year”
Reviewed 23 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Lavender Cottage was absolutely beautiful. On arrival we were met by Jane who made us feel super welcome - the fire was already roaring and the house was pristine. Jane & Mery had even left what I would consider more than essentials in the kitchen to help us on our way for the weekend.

We are very much looking forward to staying again & would highly recommend if you and your family or friends want to have a short break away in the beautiful Cotswolds.

“Autumn break”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We simply loved it. After several holiday places this is my absolute favorite. Everything we needed was present including a well filled fridge ,a bottle of wine and some crisp.Even some fruit on display.
2 bathrooms for 5 persons is quite luxury. The atmosphere of the cottage is relaxation and the beautiful garden is filled with nice birds and squirrels. We've spotted deers at just 50 meters from the premises and the sky was full of stars which were well vissible because there almost was no light pollution.Don't be afraid if you hear outside screaming at night. Owls are responsible for that spooky sound.Even Brown trout and river lobster in the little stream next to the cottage . All of that at just a 20 minutes bike ride from the beautiful city center of Banbury.Mery and Jane are the perfect hostesses with nice tips for nearby events . Can't wait to visit Lavender cottage again in summer time.

“Beautiful cottage and garden, in a peaceful and ideal location”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

When we arrived we were greeted by the owners and made to feel very welcome. We arrived early evening from Scotland, and they had wine and pasta in the fridge for us. Also bread rolls, milk, cereal etc. for the following morning. We had our little dog with us and there were doggy treats blankets, towels etc . In fact we really didn't want for anything.
The cottage itself was beautiful, especially the kitchen looking on to a garden which invited a host of birds and a squirrel. The weather was fantastic and it just made it even more enjoyable.
Bed was comfortable and we slept like logs, so quiet and peaceful. Dogs are not allowed upstairs, which probably caused me more stress than the dog to be honest. But it reassures you that the bedroom is clean and with no dog hairs.
I would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return again next year.
