Kingfisher Barn Holiday Cottages
Reviewed 25 April 2013

The booking, and arrangements for staying here were excellent. They replied to all requests/ emails immediately which was very helpful. We were a large group renting a number of the properties. I personally stayed in the"Nest" which had a lovely view and a nice living space. Some of the other rentals were a little cramped.
The cooking facitilies were great, and they were plenty of knives/ pans etc.
On the downside the pool is impossible to get access to. There seems to be more people than reservation spots. I think it is best to book your slots before you even arrive.
The hot water was also scarce.

Room Tip: The Nest is a lovely rental.

We stayed in the Stables cottage in November last year for a few nights. The living area and kitchen were great, the beds let the cottage down, they were very uncomfortable and in desperate need of a new mattress, also a double bed would have been nicer rather than a twin. I was kept awake at night by a buzzing sound coming from the swimming pool behind our heads. Also the bathrooms felt like school toilets. We did get cakes on arrival though and staff very friendly.

We stayed in The Stables self catering cottage and won't be returning. The location is lovely and the staff friendly but the cottage was seriously tatty. The bathrooms were in need of complete updating and the mattresses on the beds were ancient. The doors and furniture were tired and tatty. At this price I have stayed in much much nicer cottages - this is one to avoid.

Kingfisher Barn is a business with staff, as opposed to a family-run B&B. Everything was provided to a good standard but it lacked a little bit in character. Breakfast is brought to your room as there is no communal eating area; this may suit some people but it can feel a bit lonely, especially if you are there as part of a group. The central court yard is attractive and the location is a 10 minute walk into Abingdon which, in good weather, is very pleasant. I slept well in a quiet room, although the presence of a fridge in the room can make a bit of noise suddenly in the night! The site offers a mix of self-catering and B&B rooms which could suit some groups very well.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed fairly similar (I was part of a larger party so saw some of the others) but asking...

I found this accommodation through Booking.com and I have to say what a pleasant surprise, its in a beautiful & quiet location.
I am currently staying in a very nice B&B room, which is clean, comfortable with breakfast being delivered to my room, what a nice treat. I need to stay for business regularly over the next few weeks and although they are fully booked they have gone out of their way to accommodate me in self catering. As the weather is nice I am able to have my breakfast in the courtyard area so this makes a pleasant change to the start of my day.
The manager and staff have been very friendly, polite and chatty at all times, I can't fault the place or understand why anyone could complain about such a beautiful, peaceful country setting with excellent service.

Room Tip: would recommend Self Catering one of the large lodges
