Reviewed June 14, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Very comfortable. Lots of cereals to choose from. Great stay. Note: Stairs to "attic" very steep, but didn't need to use them.

“Perfect stopover for our business trip to Didcot”
Reviewed April 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The house was incredibly well equipped for a short stay. There are a lot of extras that make it easy to just arrive and leave when you need to

“Great location, quiet street and comfortable house.”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Thanks Olga we had a lovely stay at the Shire Cottage. The cottage had ample room for our family of five and was well equipped, complete with some food supplies and all cleaning products. There was a great collection of shops within 5 minutes walk, likewise bus and train connections. Oxfordshire is a lovely county and we greatly enjoyed exploring from Didcot.

“Great property beautifully fitted out and very comfortable value for money”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Good location for visiting LEGOLAND. Situated very near to main street and shopping centre in Didcot. Close to restaurants parks and stations. The furnishings are of a very high standard and extremely comfortable. Continental breakfast was a bonus and the garden was a little sun trap with plenty of things to keep my grandson happy. Would highly recommend.

“Would definitely come back!”
Reviewed April 30, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We were looking for somewhere to use as a base when coming back to visit family and friends having moved overseas. Olga the owner was really helpful and friendly in all email communication we had and made sure we had everything we needed for our young children. The house was welcoming and had everything we needed. Was a real home from home
