Rural views from two cosy, quiet double bedrooms. Sit by a lovely pond visited by birds and dragonflies, and bats at dusk. Ancient village with 12th-century church and an old village pub serving excellent food. 2 miles from station— trains take 1h14m to London, 12m to Oxford.
Osborne House, built around 1790, is situated on the edge of the Cotswolds and is the perfect base from which to explore Oxford and nearby Blenheim Palace.
You have at your disposal an entirely self-contained two double bedroom apartment attached to our family home but accessible via its own separate entrance, so you can be as private as you wish.
On the ground floor is a newly-fitted kitchen and a comfortable sitting area with TV. Wireless internet access is available throughout.
Upstairs there are two lovely bedrooms, the first with views towards the village church, and the second looking out over neighbouring fields. Both have double beds, and a separate single mattress can also be made available if required.
There is a new bathroom with a shower over the bath; towels are supplied.
Besides your own private patio area in front of your part of the property, you also have (shared) access to the entire garden and pond. In all, the grounds are about a third of an acre.
Much of the time I will be here to show you around or will catch up with you later if I am out. After that, we'll leave you alone to soak up the atmosphere. If you need anything, or want advice on what to see or do, we're only next door.
There is a steep-sided and deep pond in the garden so please contact me in advance if you are considering bringing children under 12. The pond has now been fenced in.
Travel cot and high chair available
No smoking or candles in the flat.
Please make sure the doors and windows are locked when you go out.
Please do not leave the washing machine on when you go out.
I love history and gardening and singing and my cats. My husband Martyn is a retired stage designer and I used to teach and research. Now I do volunteer guiding in a historic building in Oxford. If you are there when I am on duty, I can give you a free guided tour.
