  • "Wonderful location, accessible roads and clear accurate directions to the property."

    Anna provided excellent instructions and welcome pack. While they live close to the property they are not invasive but quick to respond if you have a query. The facilities are very modern and hi tech with the Woodburner a nod to conventional country cottage living. Some fantastic walks close by (Crawley and Blenheim) and we had a fabulous celebratory meal at The Lamb, food was excellent. Thank you We have already rebooked!!

    We are so pleased you had a good time, really rewarding to hear. We will look forward to seeing you again, it was lovely to meet you. Property Owner

  • "What a beautiful and uplifting space this was - the styling is minimalist and just so cool, with every facility required for a home from home."

    Little bunches of wildflowers and Faith in Nature toiletries were welcome touches. We were very comfortable and it felt luxurious. Our hosts were friendly and responded immediately to our every query and request; they could not have been more gracious or accommodating. The window onto the apple trees is stunning, linking the outside to the interior and we spent a lot of time in the shady outdoor space. The weather was sweltering during our stay so we didn't get out and about as much as we'd planned. Happily, staying at the Cart Shed was the perfect place to chill out and fully relax. Highly recommend.

  • "This accommodation is magnificent, & the owners ever-helpful."

    However, there seems to be a gap between what they want to achieve and what you are promoting. Specifically, when I sought to add The Granary to my original booking for The Cartshed, you insisted on a separate booking, (saying that was what the owners wanted)and charging another booking fee. Since then, you have bombarded me with separate emails for the 2 properties (including this one) and unwanted promotions, which were of no possible interest (and very expensive). The kind of information I needed was readily available from the owners.

    The place is incredible - the under floor heating and fireplace kept us cosy whilst it rained and the nearby area was perfect for walks with the dogs. When it came to the end of our stay, we wish we could have stayed for longer - would love to come again.

The property

Witney 2 miles.

The Cart Shed is a luxurious rural retreat in the Oxfordshire countryside, ideal for a family or group gathering for those wanting to explore the picturesque countryside that abounds the area.

With off-road parking for up to three cars (four if you are using both properties) just opposite the property, you can park comfortably and head over to the property, immediately being impressed by the walkway of floor to ceiling windows that runs the length of the ground-floor level of the property, allowing in plenty of natural light.

Step inside the property and onto the warmth of the polished concrete flooring, which provides underfloor heating throughout the ground-floor level.

Leave coats and shoes in the hallway, where hooks and storage are available, and make your way down the impressive hallway towards the open-plan living space.

The kitchen is finished to the highest specification, with a stunning concrete work top and push base cupboards; here you can create delicious home-cooked meals for loved ones, to be enjoyed together at the dining table, before retiring to the sofa and throwing a few logs onto the woodburning stove as you relax with your favourite TV show or enjoy a family movie.

For the day time, the sliding door can be opened to allow in a fresh summer's breeze.

And you have a large glazed sliding door panel that leads directly into the wood for direct access or simply watching the woodland birds through.

When it's time to catch up on rest, choose from three bedrooms; a ground floor double and twin, served by a stylish shower room suite with excellent shower access.

On the first floor is a spacious and light twin with zip/link feature and the option of a double sofa bed for extra sleeping space, apex roof and stunning en-suite bathroom with a choice of bath or shower and a large skylight allowing in plenty of light.

Head outside and into the woodland for an evening around the fire pit, toasting marshmallows together, and during the daytime the children can explore the treehouse and play on the swing, while the lawn and south facing gravel area are great places to sit out with a morning coffee and soak up your peaceful surroundings.

The Cart Shed is an idyllic base for a group gathering in Oxfordshire.
