We basically only slept there as we were moving in to a new house so working most of the time in the new house. The Large rooms was a great bonus for us. Comfy beds with thick duvets that kept us warm. However it was cold and we didn’t see any instructions about the heating. In the letter it said there was a white gate, there wasn’t and the wi-fi code had a number missing.

We loved our stay at the Bladon Farmhouse. We were looking for a quiet, comfortable place for our family of 4 to stay that was close to Blenheim Palace, and this fit the bill perfectly. It was an easy 20-minute walk to the Palace through lovely fields. The Farmhouse itself is charming, clean, and comfortable, with a well-appointed kitchen for those looking to cook a few meals at the house. We immediately felt right at home in the thoughtfully designed and cosy rooms. The owner even provided a travel cot for our younger child so we didn’t have to bring out own. The Farmhouse is situated on the main road in the village, which is great for bus transit if you don’t have a car, but it’s not too noisy. The owner and the team at Short Let Stay were incredibly responsive and helpful throughout. We accidentally left behind an important item after we had checked out, and they responded to our calls immediately, helping us solve our problem very quickly. We would happily stay there again!

Just about 25 mins outside of Oxford and backing into Blenheim Palace this was the perfect location for us as we were visiting family in the area. The house was very clean with nice touches such as fresh flowers, home baked bread and farm eggs. The owners live next door and were very personable and gave us helpful tips. The main road is a bit noisy so recommend opening the bathroom windows if you want some fresh air. However, overall I would highly recommend this house

This charming English cottage is a delightful farm house. It was quaint and peaceful with a wonderful flower garden out front. The owner lives next door and was very accommodating to feel at home and help advise on nearby things to do and see and pick up some groceries. The hosts left beautiful fresh cut flowers, bread, butter, milk, and juice to welcome us. The house is within walking distance to Churchill’s grave, The White House Pub, and the back entrance to Blenheim Palace. A taxi ride is needed to go any further. We wanted to stay in Bladon for our purpose and loved every second of our stay!

A very nice place in a good location next to Bleinham Palace. Convenient for Oxford and surrounding areas. A very useable and practical home. Everything we needed was made available to us and we were able to do some home cooking and baking. Kelvin was a great communicator and always was willing to consider any requests. We liked the place so much we already booked again, says it all!

Great cottage, great location for exploring the palace grounds on foot and close enough to walk to the beautiful village of Woodstock. Very friendly owners and easy check in. Loved our whole stay, would go again and definitely recommend!!

Jul 2021

Lovely home and the hosts were super friendly and helpful. We loved being so close to Blenheim Palace and spent lots of time there. It’s a 30 minute walk into Woodstock which we didn’t mind but worth noting if you have young kids or mobility issues as you will have to drive to get to the main town centre/restaurants/shops etc. Not the cheapest option out there but plenty of room for a family of four with access to all the great stuff the Cotswolds has to offer!

Lovely cottage, in the village of Bladon so well situated for visiting Oxford and Woodstock.

Nicely set up and has everything you need for a family stay. We had a lovely few days, thank you!

Jun 2021

We had a really lovely stay. The cottage was perfect for us, a couple with two children. Two big bedrooms each with their own bathroom, a big kitchen and a nice sitting room to relax in. A welcome hamper of eggs, bread, milk, teabags etc was a lovely touch.
The cottage is very well located, within walking distance to Blenheim Palace and Woodstock which we loved.
Hosts Kelvin and Kate are very friendly and helpful. Would recommend.

May 2021

Lovely cottage, around the corner from Blenheim Palace and Woodstock – so location was great.

Cottage is really charming, was super clean and Kate and Kelvin were just amazing hosts.

Received detailed instructions on pretty much everything, a very warm welcome and even a freshly baked loaf of bread by Kate!
