    "Absolutely fabulous week. We love S24874 and its location- just perfect for Oxford, Blenheim Palace and just staying at the cottage and watching the traffic (the narrow boats!!) go by. It was very clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Annie’s tea rooms just over the bridge are very good (especially for breakfast!) and there are some lovely walks."
    Richard – 17 Feb 2018

    Peter – 17 Feb 2018
    "Lovely cottage. Well equipped. Very clean. Good location. The only minor improvements we can think of: Could do with a combi boiler so that hot water always on tap. Small sofa downstairs would be good."
