Lovely cottage in lovely village , with excellent pub across the road. Food at the pub made our stay easy. Supermarket not far away , also a garden centre, but the village was lovely and quiet. Made a good base for our family to celebrate our daughter's wedding . Would be happy to stay at this cottage again.

Management response:

The boiler was reset however and it started...

Wendlebury was a great location for us too; nice and quiet but very conveniently situated for Bicester and Oxford. Bicester has a train station with a direct train to London, which only takes 90...
