“Lovely little cottage”
Reviewed August 6, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed in Sweep's cottage for 8 days. Julie was waiting for us when we arrived and showed us around the house. The house is cute and cosy and it was spotlessly clean. The bed is also very comfortable. We had our car with us so being able to park in the little courtyard was great. We bought a 7 day bus card to get into Oxford. There are many buses going into town so you don't have to wait for long to get a bus and the ride is quite short, around 15 minutes. There are many nice places to eat around Sweep's cottage as well. We highly recommend the place.

“A little gem!”
Reviewed June 30, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The friendly owners, Peter and Julie, have ensured Sweeps Cottage offers home comforts with all the facilities you might expect plus off street parking within the beautiful grounds of their own property. It's location is excellent for all Headington amenities with easy public transport links to Oxford city centre just a few minutes' walk away. Overall a delightful place to stay.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed May 25, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This cosy, comfortable cottage is truly home from home. Tastefully converted to keep that cottage feeling with the comfort of underfloor heating. Mine hosts were very informative and attentive marking us feel welcome and relaxed. To top it all a rental mattress that was comfortable.Ahhh
Local shops and restaurants all within walking distance has all you need. A 40 min scenic walk down Cockoo Lane takes you into the heart of Oxford.
Oxford with its spires,cathedrals, collages and rivers has more than enough to keep you busy and with "Downton Abbey" a short journey away a lovely area to visit.
After a busy day it's back to "Home" with its lovely garden and off street parking and that mattress
A really enjoyable 5 nights and a 45th wedding aniversery to remember
They have returned a pair of jeans left in the wardrobe as "Part of the service".

Thank you Peter,Julie and Monty.

“Sweet Sweep's Cottage ”
Reviewed May 11, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

What can I say but WOW!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Peter and Julie were wonderful hosts. Super easy to communicate with and extremely helpful. Thank you both for providing a great place to stay.
Sweep's Cottage is a true gem. Very warm, comfortable and welcoming. The pictures show the cottage in good light but once you see it in person, in all its glory and the surrounding gardens, you realise it is so much more. It is the perfect size for a couple, the cooking facilities are first class. We enjoyed preparing several meals with ease. Supermarket and bus stop are at the top of the street and a bus to Oxford take only minutes. Alternatively you can walk to Oxford in about 40 min down a tree lines lane (Cuckoo Lane), well worth the stroll. Under floor heating keeps the cottage at a beautiful 20 deg C. Very comfortable when it is chilly outside.
I can highly recommend Sweep's Cottage to any couple looking for a friendly, warm and welcoming place to stay when exploring Oxford and surrounding areas. 5 star experience. Included are some pictures of the beautiful spring garden. ✨

“Cosy flat in good location”
Reviewed April 17, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Had a really nice few days here when visiting Oxford. Location is good for shops and parks and it's not far into the city - the transport links are good but we ended up walking which was also straightforward. Everything comfortable and well-decorated. Also appreciated the croissants and juice!

Reviewed March 7, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Sweep's cottage has character and is a warm and welcoming base for a visit to Oxford. It felt spacious for 2 and has comfortable chairs for sitting. We enjoyed our stay and would be happy to return.
