“Nowhere nicer to do nothing”
Reviewed February 28, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

This is the single best-equipped and most comfortable rental house I've ever stayed in. Every need was anticipated and everything was superb quality. Unbelievably relaxing, quiet and just perfect. Perfect place for pottering about or just sitting by the fire. Lesley is a superlative hostess. If there were twenty stars I'd give them all to The Long House!

“Perfect countryside retreat”
Reviewed February 20, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We had an amazing four nights stay over the New Year period at the Long House. It met our expectations and some! We wanted a cosy getaway in the countryside that was also dog friendly. The Long House offered just that. This quirky, fun bolthole caters for all your creature comforts, with a wonderful welcome hamper and delicious cake on arrival. Lesley and Roger have thought of absolutely everything and were on hand to give advice on pubs / restaurants and even cooking a roast in the Aga! The surrounding area has so much to see and do. We enjoyed lovely country walks, a trip to Woodstock/Blenheim Palace, the White Horse and very good pub grub at the local Chequers Inn. The Long House was exactly what we wanted, a charming warm retreat to cook/relax and chill out. 10 out 10 to Lesley and Roger for creating a little slice of heaven!

“A wonderful winter retreat for long walks, sitting by the fire and enjoying the luxury of a lovely home.”
Reviewed January 5, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We had a wonderful few days at the Long House. The house is beautifully equipped with everything you might need for a getaway from all the cooking tools needed, to wonderful bathrobes and slippers. We enjoyed the wonderful wood stove and looked longingly at the patio which must be lovely in the spring and summer. The Long House is so welcoming and comfortable and our host, Lesley, makes you feel so welcome. We went on a few nice walks and the local village has a nice pub. I would love to come back in warmer weather to explore the surrounding countryside.

“Fabulous country cottage getaway”
Reviewed November 6, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We have just had a wonderful short break at The Long House. We were met by Lesley at the cottage and found it to be beautifully presented with so many little extras which I am sure for anyone booking in the future they will find enchanting. The whole experience resulted in a perfect holiday and is one which we certainly hope to be able to repeat again soon.

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed August 9, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We booked The Long House to stay in for our wedding in Wantage last weekend and it could not have been more perfect. I stayed with my Bridesmaids one night and then with my husband the following two nights. The house is spacious but feels cosy and has everything you would need. Lesley is wonderful, helpful and very accommodating. Letting us leave whatever time we wanted on our last day was really kind. We also loved the little extras like the delicious cake and breakfast goodies that were left for us. I would definitely recommend staying here
