Susan - May 2024 - VRBO

Such a lovely house – we wished we could stay longer. Perfectly clean and everything we needed in the house. Beds really comfortable. We wanted to be tourists in Oxford and the house is very close to the bus stop so everything was easy.

Sarah - May 2024 - Air B&B

Beautiful house, very spacious and light, comfortable beds.

Sarah - Nov 2023 - Air B&B

Everything has been fab & the property just perfect! It had everything we needed. Our only piece of feedback is that the house is not good for people with mobility issues. The steps up to the house really difficult as no handrail & there were stairs between the double bedroom & bathroom without a bannister. But it’s perfect in every other way!!

A beautiful house, very well equipped for our families needs.

Sep 2023

The home was warm, clean & comfortable. However, the location directions unclear. Add detail like ‘drive entrance on High Street, (not Friday Lane), opposite United Reform Church’, could helpfully be added. The oven on cooker didn’t work on arrival. Owner came the next day & fixed it. (Thank you).

A very clean and well managed place. A great place to stay

Jun 2023

We had a very pleasant stay at Friday Cottage. The house proved to have all the facilities we needed and was well located for places we wished to visit. The information you provided before we arrived was very useful.

Now I need to thank you again for the link to your website. It may well prove helpful for future visits.

Very nice clean and spacious. Would recommend

May 2023

Lovely property, very well equipped and furnished. Really nice to have the two living room areas, though we would have preferred the TV in the cosier room! The village is friendly and active, with excellent bus links to Oxford. Recommend this place
