“Wonderful Cottage & Host”

We stayed here for 3 nights in May. Angie the owner was there to greet us on arrival and had gone out of her way to make us feel welcome, very special, and instantly relaxed, which is just what we needed. The cottage is beautifully decorated, absolutely spotless, and Angie has added her own extra little touches that make your stay so comfortable. The cottage is centrally located in Woodstock with everything you need on your doorstep, including the beautiful Blenheim Palace. We took a bus into Oxford too, which was so easy. The bus stop was just around the corner from the cottage and the buses run really regularly. There are numerous pub/cafes & restaurants to eat in within walking distance of the cottage too. We would highly recommend this cottage, we had the most wonderful stay and will definitely be returning. Thank you Angie for making our stay so lovely.

About the location

The name Woodstock means a "clearing in the woods “and was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. Today Woodstock is a bustling market town with historic, honey- coloured stone streets to explore which are home to antique shops, art galleries and individual shops. There are an array of tearooms, coffee shops and pubs and high-end restaurants to tempt you too. The town is within walking distance of Blenheim Palace, a World Heritage Site often referred to as Britain’s greatest palace, and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. A walker’s paradise, the grounds of Blenheim include a great lake, beautiful formal gardens and plenty of off-the-beaten track rambles. Open throughout the year, the grounds are particularly captivating in autumn, and there’s always something going on, from a Christmas craft fair, concerts and Battle Proms, to horse trials and jousting. Woodstock is also a good touring base for exploring the university town of Oxford and its many attractions, or head into the Cotswolds to discover quaint villages and pretty towns. Woodstock is an excellent base for exploring Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds.
