Overview

About the property

Cottage in Wheatley, Nr. Oxford, Oxfordshire, England - Village Location Within Walking Distance Of Shops, Post Office, Bank And Excellent Coffee Shop

Set in the courtyard of our own home, but completely separate and private, Gadbury Cottage is cosy and very comfortable whether your choice is for a winter or summer break. It offers an ideal location to discover Oxford and the nearby attractions of Oxford City, Blenheim Palace, Shotover Park, Waterperry Gardens, Otmoor nature reserve, the Chilterns and Cotswolds Hills. Wheatley has all the facilities to meet your immediate needs - 2 foodstores, baker, coffee shop, post office, bank and choice of restaurants and pubs. The village has a long history through it's location on the main coaching route from London to Oxford - it was once descibed as the most agreeable stopping place between Beaconsfield and Woodstock. Today it's transport links are still excellent being just 2 miles from the Thornhills Park and Ride and a similar distance from the M40. There are regular bus services to Oxford and to Haddenham/Thame train station. Central London is c53 miles and Heathrow c45 miles, both have good public transport links.

About Mrs Jenny Steele

My husband and I have recently retired and now have the time to focus our attention on our two holiday cottages. Between holiday lets we spend as much time as possible in our cottage in Devon as we love the area of the South Hams. We are also delighted to enable people to enjoy the wonderful City of Oxford and surrounding area whilst staying at our cottage in Wheatley.

Mrs Jenny Steele purchased this cottage in 1994

Very comfortable and well appointed with easy access to Oxford and surrounding countryside.

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location from which to reach and see Oxford without using your car. A bus three minutes away takes you rignt into the centre of the city. We did an Inspector Morse city walking tour; the ideal way to learn about the City and see the Colleges. Wheatly is the perfect location from which to drive around delightful countryside and visit charming villages and enjoy some really good restaurants. Our hosts were most welcoming and helpful.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We are an Australian couple who have stayed in the cottage for eight weeks this year and for four weeks in 2016.

The cottage has been tastefully renovated by its friendly owners Jenny and Martin Steele and is located in a grand house with beautiful gardens.

It's situated in Wheatley which is a lovely village on the outskirts of Oxford and centrally located to the Cotswolds and well serviced by coaches to London.

We recommend this property

This is a very nice cottage with tasteful decor, very comfortable beds and a great heating system on what was a freezing weekend! So lovely and cosy. Excellent for access to Oxford and surrounding areas. Would we stay there again? Absolutely! So highly recommended.

Good quality, warm and welcoming from both the owners and the property itself, including the wine!

  • 5 of 5

Cosy but spacious with everything you need for a winter holiday - warmth, nice beds and a comfortable living space. Also a good kitchen and bathroom. Our toaster gave up the ghost on our first night but the owner replaced it with their own toaster, providing a new one the next day. Wheatley is also a pretty village with good bus links to Oxford so no car required! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay (especially the snow!).
