    Spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable especially the bed!! The grounds are superb and beautifully maintained. Our dog just loved the interesting walks and sniffs.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at West Barn. It's wonderful to hear you and your furry friend loved the barn as much as us, it's in an amazing location and so much to see in the area. We hope we can welcome you back in the future.

    The nature is outstanding. Everyday we took a long walk in the woods and enjoyed it very much. It is also easy to take a trip to the beautiful villages nearby and to Oxford. The owner and his wife are kind people who took time to come and welcome us. The Barn itself is also a perfekt place to relax. There was everything we needed. It was the third time we were there. We would like to come back another time. Kind regards Bo Petersen Denmark

    It was immaculate and so well equipped and the bed was blissfully comfortable. The owners were very friendly but didn't intrude upon us at all. What a fantastic welcome when we arrived to find a lovely hand written card wishing us an enjoyable stay, a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge and some chocolates on the kitchen table. What more could you ask for! The setting of the barn was incredible, next to the main house within a beautiful private estate, so quiet and peaceful but well positioned for access to both Oxford and the Oxfordshire countryside and villages. We will definitely be returning, in fact we intend to stay here regularly now that we have discovered such a gem.

    Immaculately presented, clean and extremely comfortable. The huge bed is amazing! It was fantastic to wake up, open the curtains and lie in bed watching deer, pheasants and guinea fowl right outside the window. The owners were extremely welcoming and left wine and chocolates for us - thank you! We loved being able to wander through the peace and quiet of the beautiful woods with our dog and see so much wildlife right on the doorstep. Re the previous comment about the bathroom, we found it perfectly comfortable. Great to have a separate 2nd toilet too. Lovely location near Oxford and only 4 miles from Woodstock and Blenheim Palace. We highly recommend this property.

  • "Lovely location, idilic setting."

    Kind & thoughtful welcome greeting to include wine & chocolate. Considering the size of the bathroom a much more relaxing size bath and shower would have been appreciated. Water temperature inconsistent and the pressure too made for a very uncomfortable shower time. We would recommend but wouldn’t return ourselves as an enclosed area for our dog to have freedom to roam would be our preference.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at West Barn. It is set back in such lovely setting and it's a very popular choice with guests. Unfortunately we cannot do anything about the size of the bath at the cottage, it's just a standard bath size. With regards to the water, can i ask if you spoke to the owner about this, as I'm sure they would have been happy to look at it for you?. With regards to having an enclosed garden, your correct it doesn't have this, but we would be happy to advise you on another property for another future bookings, when you have an enclosed garden for your dog. We hope you managed to have a lovely stay and made the most of the wonderful places to visit. Kind regards Manor Cottages Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the picturesque village of Tackley, Oxfordshire, is this wonderful barn conversion.

West Barn epitomises what a Cotswolds country cottage should be, with its lovely exposed beams and open-plan interior.

Sitting in the grounds of the owner's home, in an extremely tranquil setting - once you've settled in, you won't want to leave!

Despite being a cottage for two people, all of the rooms are spacious and have been furnished to the highest standard.

With an impressive family bathroom featuring brown and cream tiles and hardwood flooring.

The lounge area has a large corner sofa, and wall-mounted TV, so you can keep up to date with all your favourite shows.

About the location


Woodstock 3 miles; Bicester 11 miles; Oxford 14 miles.

Tackley is a picturesque village situated in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, approx 8 miles north of Oxford and 3 miles from Woodstock, home of Blenheim Palace. The name Tackley is derived from 'tack' which means sheep or ewe and 'ley' which means glade or clearing! The village is very pretty, has a good village shop and a local pub The Gardiner Arms. There is another pub just outside the village called Sturdy's Castle.

Nearby there are some superb attractions to visit. Rousham Hall is very close by and although there are restrictions to visiting etc, it is a beautiful stately home. Oxford,'The city of the Dreaming Spires' and colleges is just 15 mins by car. There are literally hours of things to do there! For the determined shopper, Bicester Village which is a vast outlet centre.

Woodstock has a good range of local pubs, along with restaurants, shops and stores while the famous Blenheim Palace, home to the Duke of Malborough is well worth a day trip.
