Barn
This beautifully renovated barn is situated in a delightful rural position with views uphill to the pretty English village of Brill with its historic windmill. The barn comfortably accommodates 4 people with room for a fifth if necessary on a futon (under 12 years only). Set in 10 acres, there is plenty of room to stretch your legs and to park vehicles. Ox House is ideally situated for easy access to London, Oxford, the Cotswolds, Bicester Village shopping and the many activities that are available in the area for adults, teenagers and children. Please be aware that in this rural location there are livestock nearby which need feeding - therefore the farmer may be visible occassionally in the vicinity.

Ox house
Recently stayed at Ox house, Beautiful barn conversion in lovely rural location. Everything you need and more in this stylish home. Hosts welcomed us and nice touch that heating was on when we arrived as they knew we had a baby. Such a treat to see the sheep grazing so close to the barn each morning. Lovely walk across fields to village. Great food in the pointer pub in the village. Perfect location to explore Oxford and other locations but also perfect place to just relax. Would be lovely to go back in summer and sit in three garden and little hobbit house.

Beautifully furnished and toasty warm
We booked this cottage to be close to a family event. The furnishings were very high spec, with lovely comfy sofas and good beds. We got a train to Bicester village, got picked up by our friend and taken to the cottage. The first night, we walked to the village and had a great meal in the pointer pub and the second night, we cooked and stayed in. We also visited Thame which had great independent shops. Many things made this place great, the equipment in the kitchen, the roll top bath, the music app linked to sonos, the view, the proximity to the village, the outside patio, the warm welcome, the wood burner and the size of the downstairs. Would definately recommend, can't think.if any improvements they could make.

Perfect
We could not have selected a better place than Ox House to meet up with old friends. Beautiful property with everything you could want. Lovely to wake up in the morning and look out at the sheep. Really looking forward to our next visit

Mrs.
This was our second stay at Ox House, and it is just as wonderful as we remembered! The house is so beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The setting is absolutely lovely. It’s convenient for exploring by car in many directions. Jane and Derek are friendly and helpful. This is one of our favorite holiday homes we have stayed in!

Amazing stay!
We stayed at Ox House for two nights but it certainly wasn't long enough, this place is beautiful! Jane and Derek were brilliant hosts and so helpful. We would highly recommend staying here. It's a beautiful conversion with stunning surrounding areas - the perfect place to relax and escape the city life. We will hopefully be returning in the future! Thank you Jane and Derek :)

A lovely base for a wedding
I booked Ox Barn for myself, my husband and my parents, as my cousin was getting married at nearby Notley Abbey. They praised me for such a good find! As soon as we arrived we were blown away- what a beautifully-furnished and perfectly-situated cottage. It was very clean and comfortable and has a lovely relaxed feel. The weather wasn’t on our side this time, but we definitely hope to be back to enjoy the generous outdoor space and local walks. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ox Barn, thank you!

Beautiful place
I visited the Ox House with my family for three days and we had a wonderful time. The barn is luxuriously furnished with high tech equipment though out. We felt very warmly welcomed with a basket of goodies, bottle of Prosecco and fresh bunch of daffodils. We will be back.

Beautiful renovated countryside property
Beautifully renovated property surrounded by fields. Property has a lovely feel with lots of natural light. Owners made us feel very welcome and at home. 10 minute walk across fields to Brill village where we ate at the Pheasant Pub (recommended). Perfect place to relax and switch off.

For a more cultural experience the National Trust Properties Waddesdon Manor, Claydon House, Stowe and Boarstall Duck Decoy are nearby and the historic and fascinating City of Oxford is only 12 miles away. Also on our doorstep is The Buckinghamshire Railway Centre, frequently visited by Thomas the Tank Engine and Waterperry House and Gardens which is host to the hugely popular Art in Action event in July.
