    Mrs Wakeman – 1 Aug 2018
    "Definitely a cottage for everyone. The only thing missing is no WiFi which when you are staying with children it could be useful."
    Mrs Wakeman – 1 Aug 2018
    "This cottage is in a great location for travelling around, near to a train station to London or if you want quiet to relax a fabulous quiet garden with views for miles. Definitely a cottage for everyone. The only thing missing is no WiFi which when you are staying with children it could be useful."
    Mrs Carter – 1 May 2018

    "This was the perfect cottage for our Christmas week. The Aga makes the house warm and cosy all the time and was a pleasure to cook on. The conservatory has wonderful views all around and was a delightful place to eat our meals - sunny in the mornings, atmospheric with candles in the evenings. Bedrooms and beds were light, spacious and comfortable, and there was lots of storage space. The open fire was of course wonderful. The cottage is imaginatively equipped with everything we could possibly need, including a cookbook to guide us with the Aga, clothes pegs, cleaning materials, wood for the fire, and equipment to keep the place clean."
    - MkGWestSussex, June 2015
    "Orchard Cottage was the perfect base from which to explore Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. It was the perfect home from home, spotlessly clean, beautifully presented, and very well equipped with every home comfort we could imagine. It even had an Aga in the kitchen, and an open fire in the living room. The friendly owners, Mr & Mrs Bates, live nextdoor and were always nearby if we ever needed them. There was a family bathroom upstairs, and a shower room and toilet downstairs, giving everyone plenty of space. The views from the conservatory adjoining the kitchen were fabulous, looking out over the little orchard, open fields, and rolling hills beyond, and made a perfect place to enjoy breakfast, or just relax in the afternoon whatever the weather. The views from the bedrooms were equally tranquil, and there is something quite special about drawing the curtains in the morning and seeing a cow gazing back at you ! The countryside around Orchard Cottage is teeming with wildlife, and in particular we enjoyed watching the red kites gliding overhead, along with the pheasants and swallows at the orchard. There were plenty of shopping facilities a short car journey away at Thame, and local shops in nearby Cuddington and Brill. We chose to eat out most evenings and found excellent cuisine at The Mole & Chicken Inn at nearby Easington, and the Crown at Cuddington. The Akeman Inn at Kingswood on the A41 was also excellent. We found that there was enough to do and see in the immediate area to more than fill the week we spent at Orchard Cottage. We chose to visit the nearby magnificent Waddesdon Manor, along with the beautiful Blenheim Palace, Claydon House, and the fabulous Stowe gardens. We also ventured as far as Windsor in just over an hour, and also into London in just under 2 hours. We could easily (and willingly !) have stayed an extra week to visit Oxford, Stratford, the Aylesbury steam railway, and explore some of the picturesque local villages, and much more. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Orchard Cottage, and along with the glowing references from all the other former guests in the Visitors' Book at the cottage, we heartily recommend it."
    - Ms Longbottom, October 2016
    "No wardrobe in one of the bedrooms"
    - Mr Huber, October 2016
    "Very nice owners. Fantastic views from the garden! Very comfortable and warm house! We would book again!"
    - Ms Stevens, November 2016
    "Location & amenities were perfect as a base for my daughter & I to prepare for her wedding at nearby Waddesdon - the owners were very welcoming & extremely helpful. The cottage contained everything we needed & more. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for somewhere to relax - to wake up surrounded by the stunning countryside views is guaranteed to give you the best possible start to your day!"
    - Mr Rudwick, March 2017
    "We had a very warm welcome. Loverly comfortable and clean cottage. Beautiful viewes and plenty of wild life."
    - Mrs Wale, June 2017
    "All very good, only comment would be that there was no mirror close to an electric socket for using a hairdryer, so had to do a bit of furniture and mirror moving."
    Mr Rudwick

    Mr David Cook, Broadstone, Dorset
    "Lovely cottage in a fantastic area for visiting stately homes and gardens. We felt at home as soon as we walked in the door. Having stayed in cottages booked through Cottages before, we had great expectations and we were not disappointed in any way."
    Mrs Sandra Piggott, Horsham, West Sussex
    "The cottage owners were very welcoming. The cottage itself was very attractive and one felt at home immediately. The views from the sun room were beautiful. Generally a good feel to the place. "
    Mrs Nicola Ingram, Charroux, La Vienne
    "The cottage is set in beautiful countryside with lovely views. There was a heater in the conservatory, so we could have breakfasts out there even in the coldish weather. The Aga was cosy as was the log fire. The cottage was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable and the atmosphere was very relaxing. There were very good pubs nearby, serving excellent food."
    Mr Marlen Malek, ,
    "It is a romantic handsome house with a wonderful peaceful view of the countryside, perfect for families. Very clean house with lots of equipment. We spent a lovely week there. "

    Ms Britta Henkel, Moenchweiler,
    "Had a fantastic conservatory, great view and was in an excellent location. Had relaxed landlords. It was very clean and superbly well maintained."
    Mr Peter Rudwick, Littlehampton, West Sussex
    "A lovely comfortable cottage, with beautiful scenery."
    Mrs Ann Hammond, Sittingbourne, Kent
    "The cottage was perfect. We sat in the conservatory every night and ate our meal while watching the sun go down - the view was wonderful. The cottage was very well situated for our two trips to Bletchley Park and Oxford but there were a lot more places to visit equally close by. The cottage was warm, the beds very comfortable and there was lots of hot water. The kitchen was very well equipped and the aga was lovely."
    Mrs Susan Holdstock, Slough, Berkshire
    ""The cottage was extremely cosy and warm and the conservatory was a great hit. We spent many an afternoon sitting watching the wildlife; with the kites being particularly entertaining. The views out of every window were spectacular, and everywhere was lovely and clean. The owners were very helpful, but not intrusive. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Orchard Cottage.""
    Mr Brian Pearce, Crans-Peres-Celeigy, Switzerland
    "This is a cosy, very comfortable cottage set in outstanding scenery. The sitting room was charming and warm with a lovely open fire. We really enjoyed having all our meals in the conservatory - sunny in the mornings, atmospheric with candles in the evenings. The Aga was wonderful to cook on, and the kitchen was imaginatively equipped with even an Aga cookbook to help us. The bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable, and there was lots of storage space. Everything we could possibly need was provided. Walks from the cottage were superb."
    Mrs Angela Duffell, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire
    "Stunning views from every window. The location was a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area. We had a relaxing holiday and especially enjoyed sitting in the conservatory watching the red kites circle overhead, the cows in the next field and the trains."
    Mrs Coralie Milroy, Australia,
    "The cottage had a lovely atmosphere and wonderful conservatory to eat in and look out over fields. Lovely views from all windows and very close to small village with excellent pub, meals very good. "
    Mrs Jennifer Gorringe, Dromore, DOWN
    "Lovely, homely cottage with a great conservatory in which we enjoyed dinner and the beautiful views of this gorgeous peaceful location. Great hospitality offered by the friendly owner and family, would love to visit again!"
    Mrs Geraldine Willis, Canterbury, Kent
    "The cottage was clean and well equipped. The views from the conservatory turned a very wet week into something to be remembered as even on the dullest day there was always something to look at. "
    Mr Henry Lello, Blackburn, Lancashire
    "Particularly liked the garden and conservatory. Also the location and the high standard of upkeep and cleanliness. Very friendly owners but not intrusive. Would definately stay here again."
    Mr Michael Marchant, Croydon,
    "A lovely, cosy cottage, fantastically kitted out and with an open fire which was a real treat. The views from the conservatory were wonderful, directly facing the sunset and watching the flocks of starlings doing their roosting dance, red kites overhead. Easy access to a number of reserves and also Oxford. Perfect break for the family. Would definitely stay again."
