About The Owner

Having previously lived in other parts of the UK, Germany and Singapore, I have lived in this area for the past 30+ years.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2014

Why The Owner chose Woodstock

Woodstock seems to have a unique feel to the place, an old fashioned town with a gentle demeaning atmosphere.

Hope cottage is in a central location and full of period charm. Giving it a full make over, including a new bathroom, gave it the potential to become a sought after accommodation for discerning guests to enjoy their holiday.

Comfortable, clean, convenient location, cosy cottage where we felt at home.

  • 5 of 5

We were met by the owner who showed us the cottage and clued us in re pubs, eateries, takeaways and things to do in the area. All very helpful (as were the provisions he left for us). Cottage is very comfortable and cosy and spotlessly clean - comfy beds, lovely bathroom, spacious and convenient kitchen (although it's about to be refurbished, we thought it was fine), comfy sofa and chairs in the sitting room + big screen tv. Modern comforts in an old cottage of character. Lovely back yard, too, with sun (if it shines!) in the afternoon - managed to sit out for a short while. For another stay in Woodstock, would try to book here first.

Lovely cottage in an ideal location for visiting Blenheim Palace and the City of Oxford

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Oxford numerous times and booked the cottage for its close location Blenheim Palace and other places of interest.

The cottage is quite charming and very clean, beds were very comfortable so we all slept pretty well. The enclosed yard at the back of the house was ideal for relaxing in the sun.

The cottage is ideally situated with a car par close by and we always managed to find a space there after our days out.

The bus service to Oxford City Centre is very frequent and close by and avoiding the hassles of trying to find parking spaces near the High Street.

Lovely Christmas stay in cozy Woodstock Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the cottage for 10 days thru Christmas until New Years Eve. We are a family with 2 college aged kids.

We had a nice welcome from Allan when we arrived. He provided a small 'essentials' grocery package to get us started in case of a late arrival, this was really appreciated. He also gave us a brief overview of the Cottage and helpful advice on things to see and do in the area. Excellent.

The Cottage itself is small but cozy. Enough for the 4 of us. A Christmas tree and decorations had been put up, which was a nice touch. The Cottage was clean and comfortable. The only negatives were the small kitchen and the Fridge relegated to the cupboard under the stairs - which had a strange unpleasant smell. Parking is a small walk away, in a public car park, we never had any issue finding a space but we can see that it might be a problem at certain times of day.

The location is great - just off from the town square, with some terrific Bars and Restaurants within easy reach. Also within very short walks are a Convenience Store and the BusStop to Oxford (a great day there...). Blenheim Palace is an easy walk and terrific place to spend a day.

Overall a great stay (even the weather cooperated - cold but no rain) we highly recommend the location and the Cottage (for small families).
