“Beautiful country cottage”
Reviewed August 17, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Thank you Derek and Jane for a fantastic 8 nights at Ox house. We were so comfortable and had everything we need. The country setting with sheep, rabbits and occasionally a fox in the field gave us a real English experience. We loved that it was so private and had fields all around. The house has beautiful big windows so you could enjoy the surroundings. The kitchen is open plan and well equipped. It was so cosy with the modern lighting and underfloor heating. We would definitely stay there again!

Very comfortable accommodation, very well equipped. Lots of walks from the front door and many National Trust properties in the vicinity. Local pubs splendid and within walking distance as is the village store.

“Glorious week-end ! will visit again .”
Reviewed August 6, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Perfect on all counts , myself and three friends spent two nights recently and loved everything about Ox House .
We had plans to go out for each day which we happily did , but would have been just as pleased, to have stayed in the house to soak up the tranquillity and gorgeous surroundings.
Thank you so much for making the booking process so easy Jane , and it was lovely to meet you . Definitely will see you again !

Linda.

“Wonderful Stay at Ox House”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a really lovely stay at Ox House because of its quiet but convenient location with countryside views. My daughter was thrilled to see the pigs, chickens and sheep close up daily. Quick drive to Brill village for groceries and places to eat. The owners are genuinely kind and friendly.

“fantastic weekend”
Reviewed June 22, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We chose Ox House as we were getting married at Notley Tythe barn in Long Crendon and wanted somewhere closeby to get ready. The house is beautifully decorated with stunning surrouding views. Lovely village and setting. We have booked to stay again next year for our anniversary!

“Simply Superb!!”
Reviewed April 23, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I stumbled accross the details for Ox House by accident. What a find!! Cottage is simply superb! We hired the cottage for my daughter and bridesmaids to stay in the night prior to her Wedding at Dorton House in April.
The cottage is stunning inside and out; the pre-wedding phots I am sure will be gorgeous!!
Location is geat with excellent views. All who visited during our stay fell in love with Ox House. Jane (the owner) is so easy to deal with and nothing is too much trouble. I would definately recommend the cottage - even if you do not have a Wedding to attend!!

“Fantastic Hen-weekend”
Reviewed March 16, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

What an amazing place to have our hen-weekend. It's so thoughtful of you to leave a welcome pack for us and to even come back at night and drive us up to the Pointer restaurant for dinner. There is everything you would need as if you were at home all packed away nice and neat ready for use.
If I had a cottage to let out I wouldn'tchange a thing. It's perfect. I won't hesitate in recommending Ox House to anyone.
Ps Thanks to Derek for the car assistance. 4 woman and cars don't mix. Lol Thanks for everything. Sandra xx
