    “The cottage was clean and had everything we needed.”

    It was cosy and comfortable and the garden was newly planted and perfect for kids and dog. It suited us very well.

The property

Nestled on the edge of the River Thames, Gable Cottage is in a brilliant location for exploring the delights of Oxfordshire, away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday life, but there are also excellent transport routes to explore the world-famous tourist attractions of England’s capital city.

It’s an ideal property for a family looking for an adventure in a tranquil location, but surrounded by lots of fun for all ages.

There are three bedrooms within the cottage, all on the second floor so the family can be close to each other, particularly beneficial for those with younger children.

Each of the rooms boast beautiful grey-washed beamed ceilings, especially the large sitting room which flaunts a traditional brick wall behind the woodburning fireplace, a lovely place to gather in the winter months with your loved ones.

In the summer, head out to the back garden with the kids and the dogs where they can play amongst the enclosed lawned garden safely, while you kick back and relax in the summerhouse with a book.

When the dogs are finished frolicking in the grass, take them to the utility, fitted with dog beds and laces for you to hang your walking gear, both you and the pets will never want to leave this pretty property.

The kitchen has a marvellous double oven, so you can cook those family favourites as you spend time together in the dining room discussing the plan of action for the next day of your tranquil trip.

On your list of activities should be the Pendon Museum, showcasing scale models of the English countryside from the Inter-War years, it’s a great place to learn about English heritage and the past of the local area around you.

Slightly further out you can find other historic wonders, such as the Wittenham Clumps.

The awe inspiring city of Oxford is just 15 minutes away, visit Oxford Castle and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, there’s lots of history and culture to learn about around the traditional village of Clifton Hampden.

Gable Cottage is perfect for families who have seen the sights of typical tourist London and are looking for a new adventure.
