Perfect party house!

  • 5 of 5

Great house for entertaining large groups of friends or family. The kitchen/dining and lounge areas both accommodated the whole group easily. Kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could need to entertain in the house. Bedrooms are spaced out around the property so you can still have some privacy if not everyone staying knows each other well.

Great property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a long weekend. We found the property had everything we needed and was nicely fitted out. The garden and riverside setting were idealic.

It’s a great base to get to Wittenham clumps or into Oxford and the local pub (Chequers) accommodated 18 of us for lunch very well.

Only slight complaint would be the beds were a bit uncomfortable but that is only a minor point.

Beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

Property was quirky and roomy in a beautiful location. Kitchen and conservatory were big enough for our corporate event and there was a bedroom each for everyone which was hard to find under a budget!

One note for any corporate parties is that we struggled with the speed of the WiFi for conference calling and Skyping but for emails on 8 laptops, worked perfectly.

Annette was friendly and very helpful, letting us view the property beforehand and allowing us to check in earlier on the day of arrival. The house was clean and tidy and she had provided us with bread and wine upon arrival.

I would recommend Dinckley Court to a colleague and to anyone looking to get away from their busy lives for a few days!

Owner's Response: Thank you for letting us know your corporate event was a success and you enjoyed your stay. We will check the wifi as it doesn't usually play up. Although, sometimes these things can happen. We very much look forward forward to having you stay again and thank you for your booking.

Was a lovely house in a fantastic setting.

  • 5 of 5

Being in a group of 14 people we really wasn't sure what to expect from the holiday. Apon arriving at the house it quickly became apparent we had chosen well. It instantly felt like a home and had us all relaxing. Enjoying fantastic weather during our stay, most of our time was spent in the garden drinking playing games and enjoying the sun. As we had a dog with us I found myself spending most mornings down by the river enjoying the peace and quiet. A relaxing holiday was much needed due to work commitments etc and our stay provided exactly that. We found the lounge perfect for all of us to sit and watch some tv in the evenings. The beds we comfortable and we all enjoyed good night sleep and rest. My only criticism would be that the signs are quite set back from the roadside and the entrance not overly apparent, I missed the turning a couple of times lol. The owner popped in a few times during our stay and was very friendly and helpful too. Overall we enjoyed it and would consider going back again.

Lovely House in amazing surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The house is fantastic. There are lots of big open communal areas which is great for a large party. The grounds are amazing with the enormous garden and river at the bottom.

Amazing house in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful inside and out! The kitchen and conservatory area is a great space to entertain large groups. The location is also perfect for Oxford, it didn't take long to get into town. The rooms are spacious, with many having en-suite bathrooms. Perfect house for a group wanting a country location but close enough to Oxford.
