Wife and I stayed for three nights over a weekend for a birthday short-break. Lovely accommodation, very clean, modern with all facilities. Even better great views from every window and I imagine a real treat in the summer months. Quiet area with nice walks but equally close to some of the major tourist attractions. Have stayed in a number of high quality self-catering places over the years and likewise hotels, this ranks amongst the very best and we will certainly come back. Thanks.
My husband and I stayed at Brambles for a weekend, we booked the cottage at short notice and the owner Carol was very efficient at communicating promptly.
The directions provided by Carol made it easy to locate.
The cottage is positioned in a quiet hamlet a short drive from Banbury, a convenient location to explore many local attractions such as Oxford, the Cotswolds, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and several national Trust properties.
The cottage was warm and cosy, spotlessly clean. The double bedroom was very comfortable indeed and had a lovely view overlooking fields. The bathroom and kitchen were modern and well equipped. Excellent shower and small bath. Comfortable lounge area with a large TV and DVD player.
Carol and her husband (who live in the house next door) were very friendly and helpful and kindly left us a welcome basket of goodies including delicious bread.
We definitely recommend Brambles cottage and hope to return to explore more of the surrounding area in the summer.
Third time in property. Great owner who is genuinely interested but not intrusive. Wonderful location in heart of England but completely hidden. Great apartment with everything you could want. No wonder we came back to stay again. Highly recommended and we have rented a number in this area when visiting our son.
Visit to see grand-son in a local running race. Cottage met all our expectations - clean, well-equipped, lots of extras, e.g. fresh home-baked bread in a 'welcome' pack. Lovely grounds to walk around or just sit out, and very helpful and friendly owners.
Would look forward to visit here again.
We were blown away by this place!
Lovely rural setting, but within a few minutes of Banbury town, and a few more minutes to the M40.
The accomodation is equipped to a high standard and well laid out. As a couple we could live here for the whole summer.
As it was, we had booked 3 nights to break up a longer journey and visit local attractions (Blenheim palace, Banbury and Bletchley Park).
We will definitely book again, the setting is idyllic, Carol (the owner) was lovely and so helpful and the welcome pack (including home made bread) was much appreciated.
Warm welcome, cottage is well equipped and in a beautiful quiet location. Good tips from the host for local places of interest and eateries.
Everything impressed us about Brambles (and we have visited quite a few self-catering cottages in this area). Wonderfully thoughtful welcome pack and more importantly our welcome was perfect too - and totally unobtrusive. Thank you for letting us share that perfect location. Brambles is a beautifully designed space that you could easily stay in for longer than just a weekend and still be in love with it. Great view and super walks all around, with usual ease of visiting many other towns and villages you always wanted to see in the middle of England. Really did not want to leave and will be back as soon as possible please!
