    About the Owner

    We moved to Wendlebury in December 2002 after falling in love with the village and surrounding area. The cottage is next to the Main House surrounded by a 6 foot stone wall so is very secure. We gutted the cottage when we moved in putting in a new kitchen, bathroom, fixtures and fittings to make it very comfortable and cosy. We love the area and the close proximity we have to Oxford and Bicester Shopping Village. We live with our two children.

    Year property purchased: 2002
