“A perfect base for Oxford and surrounding area.”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a week in Penrose Barn, a beautifully converted thatched barn in a lovely hamlet right on the River Thames. Well equipped studio accommodation, clean and perfectly located for touring round Oxfordshire with the owner right next door for any queries.

“Really lovely open-plan beautifully restored listed Barn. Within steps of Thames River.”
Reviewed June 18, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Travelling for a course, and wanted to say an extra couple of days. The village, Clifton Hampden is a few miles south of Oxford, and Abington. One of the most picturesque places, with chocolate-box-cover cottages and a stunning bridge over the river Thames. A village shop/post office was another highlight. It's tiny, yet they stock so much!...complete with a red phonebox outside the door - and the lady who runs it was so friendly and helpful. Had a lovely meal in The Barley Mow, just over the Bridge. A special mention for the owner of the Barn, who lives next door. Great thought went into creating this gorgeous space, in an idyllic village. and for a woman travelling alone - it felt safe, yet unobtrusive. Wonderful welcome pack. Hated leaving this place !

Liked best: The property was lovely, and the village was beautiful. Excellent welcome pack too.
Liked least: Quite a bit of traffic through a very beautiful listed village.

“Fantastic stay!”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This is a lovely self catering property. It is furnished to a really high standard and the bed is amazingly comfortable (worth a visit just for this!!).
The owner was fantastic to deal with and goes the extra mile with the welcome pack and recommendations for place to eat. We would definitely stay here again.
