(NEW TO TRIPADVISOR) Welcome to our cute and cosy cottage. With its super thick cob walls it’s cool in summer, snug in winter, and the perfect haven to shut out the world yet with all the benefits of a beautiful and vibrant village immediately on hand including local shops, pubs and restaurants all a short walk from the front door. You’ll go to bed seeing the Milky Way on a clear night, wake up to a chorus of birdsong, and leave feeling refreshed and recharged. While away the hours playing some of our board games to golden-oldie-records with a bottle of your favourite wine in front of the fireplace, soak amongst the bubbles in the bath with one of our novels, and cook up a storm using one of the many recipe books after sampling the local farm shop or the award winning butcher / delicates...(NEW TO TRIPADVISOR) Welcome to our cute and cosy cottage.

For the best night’s rest in peaceful surroundings, the king-size bed has a superbly comfortable memory-foam mattress and comes with a choice of memory-foam and normal pillows, topped off with a big fluffy duvet. There’s also a king-size folding bed with air mattress in the living room for an additional two people. Heading out, you can walk just minutes to shop and eat somewhere different every day of the week within the village itself; enjoy the greenery and fresh air between country pubs in surrounding quaint villages; pamper yourself with a spa day, afternoon tea or swanky dinners at nearby luxury hotels; shop ‘til you drop at Bicester Village retail outlet centre just 12 minutes away by train; or use as a base to explore the local stately homes or perhaps the Cotswolds beyond. Plus of course we’re on the doorsteps of both London (stopping at Wembley for any sports and music fans!) and Oxford, both quick and comfortable journeys from the train station less than 1 mile away.

The cottage was a lot smaller than we had envisaged and as portrayed by the photo. We had hoped to meet my sister and family there but there was no space as our suitcases took up the available floor space. However it was spotless and...More

Hi Sharon. Thanks for the review. I'm sorry you felt the cottage was too small for you - it's about 500ft2 / 46.5m2 so it's not massive, but not too tiny either for a 1 bedroom house! The photos do show the space exactly as...More

About the neighbourhood
Haddenham is a perfect English village (even being shortlisted and featured in Channel 4’s ‘Village of the Year’ 2018) next to the Chilterns on the Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire borders. It has ancient links, being mentioned in the Domesday Book and has a 12th century church sitting alongside a duck pond and village green fronted by beautiful old thatched homes. It is picturesque enough to star in film, adverts & TV including multiple episodes of Midsomer Murders. As a large village it combines the best of both worlds, being a countryside retreat yet with great amenities including fantastic transport options meaning it’s quick and easy to get to and from London & Oxford as well as the host of nearby attractions.
Getting around
Transport options are great, especially for such a rural idyll, and best those of many other towns and villages. Without going outside the village, you can use the following: TRAIN - Haddenham & Thame Parkway train station - less than 1 mile away. It is on the London-Birmingham & London-Oxford lines. TAXI - Cabco local taxi firm based at the train station. CAR HIRE - 3B Vehicle Hire near the train station rent vehicles at very reasonable rates. BUS - 5 local buses (110, 111, 112, 280, 613) run frequently to / from nearby villages, towns and Oxford City. WALKING - Everything in the village - restaurants, pubs and shops - is walkable, and there is a local cab firm based at the train station if your legs get tired!
