“Christmas delight”
Reviewed December 29, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Booked the cottage over Christmas for a family of 6. We had a wonderful time. The cottage is very well equipped and to a very high standard. We even managed to cook a full Christmas lunch. It is set in a beautiful location in the Oxfordshire countryside. We even managed a Boxing Day run on the Ridgeway. We will definitely return.

“A Lovely Stay, absolutely perfect for a family long week-end”
Reviewed November 23, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Well House is very comfortable and extremely well equipped. The décor is of a very high standard and very attractive. The peace and quiet is wonderful and Alison, the owner, was very helpful and friendly. Ideally placed for our once in a lifetime birthday celebration at Le Manoir. Thank you Alison!

“A very charming house on the border to the cotswolds”
Reviewed November 1, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed in the Well House for 2 and a half weeks from the end of july to mid August 2016. The house is very spacious, open and cosy. We booked over holidaylettings.co.uk and the house was exactly as described.
The owners - living next to the Cottage - made sure that we had a great time and everything was alright.

“The Very Best!”
Reviewed August 26, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Well House. We have been staying in self-catering properties for many years and through experience have learned to look for the things that are important to us. Well House exceeded in meeting every one of those requirements. It is a beautiful property in a gorgeous setting - quietly situated, but close enough to main roads that provide access to many enjoyable days out. And no bumpy tracks to go down in order to achieve the peace and quiet.

The house is very clean and comfortable and furnished to a high standard. The kitchen and bathrooms are excellent, as are all the other rooms in the house. Alison is a wonderful host, ensuring that we had everything we needed, whilst respecting our privacy. I cannot recommend this rental highly enough!

“Awesome house in the middle of beautifull nature”
Reviewed August 22, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The Well House was magnificent. All the comfort and size you need in the house, an enormous garden and all the nature you can handle right on your doorstep. . We've seen Red Kites, lost of deer and many other thngs. London city and Oxford are easy to reach bij bus (Oxford tube). The kids played endlessly with your friendly enthousiastic dog. Alison is a great landlady.

“A unique experience”
Reviewed May 7, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This is quite the best holiday let that we have ever stayed in. The cottage is superbly appointed, with everything that you could possibly need and with the real feeling of a home. Owner Alison was extremely helpful (even doing some shopping for us ahead of our arrival! Very welcome for two tired Kiwis after a long flight from NZ.) The setting in the woods, with squirrels, pheasants, and muntjac deer, is remarkable. There are walks available right from the house (and a delightfully friendly dog to accompany you, if you wish...) We were lucky enough to experience the emergence of the bluebells in the woods, with a carpet of blue under the trees. Every visitor who came to see us also remarked on what a wonderful place it was. We can recommend it without reservation.
