Very well managed and great response. A perfect location, in a beautiful village. Well equipped with everything you need. Would definitely stay here again.

We thought the cottage was very pretty, and perfectly situated within Woodstock. To be picky, the pillows were terrible and the cleaners had forgotten loo rolls in the bathrooms. We only stayed 3 nights and so it was easy to take our rubbish home, but if we were staying for longer it would have been useful to know about the recycling and containers to put it in. The TV has seen better days, but with all that we still loved staying at the cottage and my husband particularly enjoyed the variety of books.

Our Reply
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Please be assured we take all feedback seriously and we will look into this all for you. We do detail in our guest handbook which is emailed how to recycle your rubbish for the home, but we will take a look into this to ensure this is all up to date. We do hope to welcome you back again soon. Lindsay @ Short Let Space

really great location

Sep 2023

The only thing that let it down was the parking. Being where it was was great but we had to leave one of the cars at the event as we would never have found space for 2 cars as we came from different ends of the country.

May 2023

Amazing place just behind Blenheim Palace, so cozy and comfortable especially fitting for couple with one child, and lots of fantastic inn nearby, we do like to book again when back to Woodstock later.

Aug 2021

Clean and well presented cottage with lots of charm and character. Excellent location, close to the pubs, restaurants and conveniences of Woodstock and the grounds of Blenheim Palace.. Our kids loved it, but we had to be vigilant with our one year old on the spiral staircase.

Mar 2020
