- Very Good
The school house was a very comfortable and pleasant cottage to spend a week. Beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. Luckily we had excellent weather so we could enjoy a glass of wine in the garden. Plenty of seating in garden. Would recommend this cottage as a base to travel to the lovely towns and villages around the cotswolds
“Very good holiday.”
Very comfortable cottage, enjoyable week despite the poor weather, the gas fire was appreciated but the Tassimo coffee machine needs descaling as it won't work until this is done.
“Lovely place to stay”
The cottage is lovely and very well planned and laid out, with parking and a pretty little garden which is full of flowers with a bbq and table and chairs. A lot of care has been expended on making the property welcoming, all the little things like dishwasher tablets etc are there, together with a little hamper, milk etc when you arrive - a lot of care has been taken to make you feel welcome. We have previously visited close to Christmas 2015 and the decorations were a lovely touch - the welcome and consideration for guests is probabaly the best of all the places we have rented and makes the difference for us. Cleanliness and decoration are excellent and collecting keys and dealing with owner are all very easy. We visited Oxford and Blenheim Palace several times as well as the Cotswold villages, it's very central for all these. The village itself is quiet and pleasant (it's not a tourist mecca like some villages) with a co-op and pub within easy walking distance. Overall a great place to stay to explore the area.
Well equipped, clean and comfortable accommodation in ideal location for exploring Cotswolds and visiting Oxford. Much appreciated the welcome hamper.
“Beautiful cottage in iconic location”
We had a wonderful time here. This cottage was perfect for us (family with three kids aged 11 to 16). It has everything you need and our host was wonderful. She made sure everything was perfect for our arrival but never once bothered us in any way. The village has easy access to the whole district from Oxford to Blenheim palace to numerous other gorgeous villages. Our one big mistake was only booking 5 days!
“The Best Honeymoon I Could Wish For”
The Old School House sits next to a church in a beautiful, quiet countryside. The idyllic environment lends itself to utter relaxation while supplying all the modern amenities to keep guests comfortable. The host does an exemplary job of catering to visitors' needs while also supplying a basket of local goodies to welcome you. With a location just down the road from a grocer and no more than twenty minutes drive to local Cotswold towns, this proved to be the best base for day travels and the wisest self-catering option for any guest.
“A perfect, lovely place to stay.”
What a perfect place to base yourself to visit the lovely Cotswolds. Wouldn't think twice about going back there again. All the information provided in the pack left there was spot on, only wish we could've stayed longer.
“Most relaxing Christmas in years!”
Fantastic cottage - very clean and tastefully decorated with all facilities one could need. Welcome basket with lots of local cakes, biscuits, cheeses etc was a lovely touch. Great location, ideal for visiting Cotswold Wildlife Park, Birdland etc. Would definitely recommend and hope to return.
“Superb quality cottage - centrally located for surrounding Cotswold villages”
The cottage could not have been more welcoming - we arrived after dark, having travelled all da,y to find that the heating and lights were switched on and a more than generous welcome package had been left for our enjoyment. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the bed linen and towels were of excellent quality. The beds were very comfortable and for a cottage the rooms were quite spacious. The kitchen was very well equipped - to the point that my husband said "I bet they don't have this..." only to find it in the cupboard. The plumbing - pressure of shower, hot water etc., was very good, no noisy tank filling noises in the middle of the night. The heating and log burner were gas and very efficient - There was also a very good 'house guide' left by the owner.. We were travelling from outside of the UK and the owner contacted us the day before and on the evening of arrival to make sure all was OK for us - she was extremely helpful and obliging and we could not recommend this cottage highly enough. We were 4 adults travelling together and the cottage was more than spacious enough for us.
“Very comfortable and perfect location”
After a hectic week of sightseeing in London, we stayed at the Old School House for three nights. It was just what we hoped for - quiet, comfortable, picturesque. The location turned out to be perfect as it was central to the places we wanted to see in the Cotswolds but the village itself - Milton Under Wychwood - was not very touristy and felt like an authentic part of English rural life, especially when we lined up with the locals to buy fish and chips from the van that stops in the village green on Thursday nights. The village also had a supermarket and post-office. We organised for rental bikes to be delivered to the Old School House and went on quite a few rides around the area. I also had a fantastic massage from a local therapist - Windrush Therapies - who came with mobile massage table and set up in the living room. Lovely.
