Beautiful Grade II Listed Thatched Country Cottage near Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons (3.8 miles), Thame (4.5 miles) and Oxford City Centre (6 miles)Well behaved dogs are welcome! There is a golf course and horse riding centre in Waterstock itself.

Sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms.

Located in the rural, peaceful Oxfordshire Hamlet of Waterstock, with good public transport links to Oxford City Centre from the end of the lane and a short taxi ride away to the renowned Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons.

The space
You will have full and exclusive use of the complete detached cottage and also the enclosed wrap-around gardens. There is private off-road parking for three cars.

The cottage dates back to 1295 and is of unique Architectural interest being a Cruck Constructed Medieval building.

However, despite its age, it has been fully modernised for today's living standards and includes: a range oven, induction hob, dishwasher, built-in fridge, built-in freezer, washing machine and an Italianstyle wet-room with Hansgrohe drench fittings and heated floor. Free WiFi and heating is included along with a complimentary welcome hamper comprising: 6 free-range eggs, artisan bread, organic milk, fresh orange juice, organic cereals, butter or flora (vegan) and preserve/marmalade. Plus a bottle of welcome fizz or Lily O’Brien’s Chocolates.

Both bedrooms will be made up with pure white Egyption cotton bed linen and fresh fluffy towels for every guest will be provided.

I am available at check in (usually) and available on the phone 24/7 and I can help with any requests, problems or queries.... other than that you will be left alone to enjoy the peace and quiet.

The nearby Fox & Goat Public House is a delightful country pub serving excellent beers, wines and home-cooked food. Waterperry Gardens is also well worth a visit!


With a welcoming smile,

Footnote: This is a 700-year old cottage in the English countryside with a straw thatch roof so inevitably some spiders come inside. Even if the cottage has been cleaned the day before, some spiders/webs may have returned. It does not mean that the Cottage is not clean. If you are worried about this, or have a fear of spiders maybe best not the book. I would like to add that spiders are a sign of a healthy house. Pesticides will keep the spiders out and kill any existing ones present, but pesticides also cause cancer in humans! Warm wishes Ali x
