A very nice location

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed here before. Now, the second time, confirmed why we have chosen Dinkley Lodge. The beadrooms with their own bathrooms were very comfortable for our group.

An Oxfordshire Gem

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 5 wonderful nights at Riverside Lodge and couldn’t fault it. We were 3 couples meeting up for a reunion and the accommodation was very spacious with the added bonus of an ensuite to every bedroom. We loved the fact that all rooms had a river view and a door leading on to the decking. The accommodation was extremely clean and very well equipped. We were very lucky with glorious bank holiday weather so we could sit outside and watch the boats float by and the cows in the fields opposite. Definitely a hidden gem in the Oxfordshire countryside, thank you Annette for letting us rent your cabin.

Breathtaking views outside and great accommodation inside

  • 5 of 5

Riverside Lodge is a great place to stay. Stunning views. Peaceful surroundings. Very good standard of accommodation and well equipped. Each of the double bedrooms has an en suite. Pub within walking distance serves excellent meals. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!

Wonder weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this wonderful cabin by the river for a calm and relaxing hen weekend and it was absolutely perfect. The bride loved it and it was so wonderfully peaceful. As a group of seven, it could have felt cramped, but this place is like a TARDIS! Each of the three bedrooms has a spacious en-suite bathroom, so great for girls getting ready for an evening out. Very convenient for venturing into Oxford (though taxis do end up a tad pricey), and has some good access to local things to do such as the Arboretum, the marina at Dorchester and it's not too far from the Crazy Bear at Stadhampton. Communication with the owner, Annette is easy and key collection and return is simple. Big thumbs up!

There is also The White Hart at Dorchester www.white-hart-hotel-dorchester.co.uk. the Crazy Bear www.crazybear.co.uk (very trendy) 3 miles by car, the George and the Fleur dy Lys at Dorchester on Thames, 15 min walk max. Not to mention Lily's organic café for lovely coffee delicious breakfasts. Plus MacDonalds which is just by Benson roundabout on the way to Marina, Turn right outside property, turn right at roundabout and at the 3rd roundabout you will see Garage and Takeway plus small M&S food services. Nearest shop is Co-op at Dorchester. There is also a Waitrose in Wallingford which is a lovely Thames side market town to visit with lots of history, Tesco in Abingdon and Sainsbury at Heyford Hill roundabout on the way to Oxford.

Benson Marina, great café/restaurant with wonderful river view.
