“An extraordinary property!”
Reviewed October 16, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We took my elderly parents to the Long House for a weekend of rest and relaxation in the country. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place; in a quiet and peaceful rural setting with all the luxuries of a 5* hotel and packed full of interesting finds and antiquities. A really wonderful and unique property.

Reviewed October 10, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The long house is fantastic. We had a great time, so much so have rebooked for early next year.
The are so many lovely touches..from the excellent Gin honestly bar, welcome pack with a yummy homemade cake that we throughly appreciated to all the extras.... such as robes, luxury toiletries and the fun quiz.
The location was so peaceful yet with lovely walks from the doorstep and a stroll across the field to the local pub. All rooms are tastefully furnished and have lots of unusual extras, which are so cool. It's a very relaxing place.
I can say that Lesley has thought of everything!

“Amazing House”
Reviewed September 23, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Stayed here for five nights, the house was spotlessly clean and so well equipped with everything you could possibly need. On arrival there was a welcome sign on the door, inside there was a homemade cake, eggs, milk, bread, butter even tea and coffee. There are so many footpaths with various walks including one across the fields into the village, where you can visit the local inn for either a drink or a lovely meal. So much to see in the surrounding areas. Both Lesley and Roger were lovely hosts and I cannot recommend this property highly enough.

“Lovely accomodation”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for a long weekend as a group of four friends. Lesley was very welcoming and gave us a great introduction. There are lots of extra touches that really set this place apart, including the home made cake, breakfast, iPad etc etc.

Very well kept property, clean and tidy.

Highly reccommended

“Truly Delightful Property”
Reviewed July 20, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A truly delightful property epitomising everything a country retreat should be. The palpable warmth and friendliness of Lesley's welcome set a lovely tone to our stay. Not forgetting the memorable goodie basket on arrival- the Victoria Sandwich was a real treat!

This converted barn exudes charm, comfort and style and is ideal for convivial gatherings. With cosy pubs, a plethora of walks and cultural pursuits on the doorstep one needs to look no further than "The Long House" Oxfordshire.

“Idyllic , dont miss this one !”
Reviewed June 9, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed at the Long House for two nights , what a wonderful experience. This barn is set in an outstanding location ; peaceful and beautiful. The conversion has been sensitively completed to a high standard. The bathrooms are exceptional and every little detail seems to have been considered throughout .The long house enjoyes so many little touches , I really think listing them here would detract from the experice of discovering them on a visit !
If you want to 're charge' in luxury , this is the place for you !!
