Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a fantastic find! Tim was welcoming and the extra touches in the lodge were appreciated, fresh eggs, homemade jams, lemonade. The lodge itself is amazing, comfy, cosy, well equipped, well situated, built and designed to a fantastic standard. Their cat was very friendly and we had loads of lovely cuddles, wonderful views, peaceful location.....cant praise this break away enough. Book now!

“Super Lodge”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Mizpah was all I had hoped for, both for me and my sons. Gorgeous location, friendly welcoming hosts, working wifi (handy for me but essential for the teens!), incredibly comfortable bed and fully kitted out kitchen, and the eggs and wee treats were most welcome. For us it was a base for visiting relatives but is ideal for folk wanting to explore the area with ample walking routes, which Tim will advise on. I can't recommend it highly enough. Thank you Tim and Sarah for a lovely time.

“Charming quiet getaway with gracious, generous hosts”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I rented here to be close to Henley but not in it and close to friends. I wasn't sure what to expect but what I found was a charming and cosy lodge with pleasant views over the fields nestled in the Chilterns. The most wonderful hosts offered an occasional bunch of free range eggs from their chickens (delicious eggs by the way - just don't run the chickens over if they are free ranging behind you, they have to cross the road after all!) and some home made elderflower cordial. They even wheeled in an extra small fridge when I was trying to do a bit more cooking than would fit in the small one they already had.

This was an excellent point to be based at for the local area, not too far from anything but far enough to give you true peace and quiet. Complete with indoor and outdoor places to sit and chill or sit to eat.

Only suggestion, since I was cooking, would Beto beg for decent sharp cooks knife and a means to sharpen it. A minor complaint really! I also wish the shower was just a tiny bit more capable (still good enough to get the job done mind you)but that would probably ruin the eco credentials.

I will be booking again.

“Fantastic Little Gem”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed here for 2 nights with friends, and what a find it was!!! The lodge is beautifully kitted out and contained everything we needed! Very charming and helpful owners. Was a great base for us as we travelled to Oxford, Henley-on-Thames along with Witney and Wallingford!! Would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to explore Oxfordshire. We will be definitely making a return visit and look at exploring the area on bikes next time. Thanks again to Tim and Sarah!
