We stayed at this amazing Cottage for 5 days We were absolutely delighted with this perfect accommodation Everything you could possibly have needed was there. To say it was clean was an understatement I have never stayed anywhere that was so immaculate. The hosts were so friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Perfect situation for Woodstock which has a good range of restaurants and visiting Bicester Oxford and the Cotswolds. Will definitely return Thank you Janet and Mark for giving us a lovely holiday

The cottage was exactly as shown in the photos and far better equipped than a lot of bigger places we have stayed in. It was immaculately clean and very comfortable. Janet and her husband were charming, helpful and friendly. Our only regret was that we only booked 2 nights!

This was a chance find, which often they are, but what a find. The major difference here, compared to many places, is that the owners take full responsibility to ensure that guests have a wonderful stay and we did. Even before arrival Janet asked what type of milk we would prefer and a large bottle was waiting in the fridge but on meeting her and her husband Mark, you soon see why the place has everything you could wish for. Extremely well appointed, absolutely spotless (we dropped something behind the bedside cabinet and in 9 places out of 10 there would be a carpet of dust underneath - not here. Nice touches like fresh hot cross buns with butter were waiting for us on our arrival and Janet and Mark deserve the success that they are clearly having with this little place, it's a gem and there is nothing more I can say - it's all been said by previous guests. Just one thing though - we'll certainly be back.

The warm welcome we received from the owners of Manse Cottage was matched by the excellent preparations they had made prior to our arrival. They had provided fresh fruit, milk, etc. and Janet had been meticulous in her cleaning regime (all important in these Covid times). Blenheim Palace is within walking distance and Woodstock is close by, giving a choice of restaurants and Inns. The cottage has a sunny patio for the use of guests on which we enjoyed a glass of wine each evening. Some morning traffic noise may not be for everyone, however we found the whole 3 day experience first class and we would thoroughly recommend the cottage to anyone wanting a peaceful break in lovely surroundings.

Highly recommended. The host had provided everything we needed and the accommodation was spotlessly clean.

Great place to stay whilst visiting the Cotswolds. Tastefully decorated, within walking distance to Blenheim and easy to reach Oxford, Cheltenham and the Cotswolds villages and towns. Very helpful owners and we were greeted by a welcome snack on our arrival. Comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen.

A beautiful cottage set in the quaint, sleepy village of Bladen in Oxfordshire. Manse cottage was out retreat for 4days and it surly was a retreat. The peaceful atmosphere and the beautiful gardens greeted us on our arrival, along with our fantastic hosts Janet and Mark who made us feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them . As we entered the cottage to the sound of exquisite music and the birds singing in the trees outside we felt at home and relaxed. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well maintained. The cottage is central to all the tourist attractions in Oxfordshire and only an 8 minute drive to Oxford itself. Our stay was very peaceful and tranquil, we cant wait to see be welcomed back to the cottage next year.

We had wanted to book a weekend away following a long uncertain period. Upon arrival to this very pretty cottage we were warmly greeted by Janet and Mark; whilst all of us maintaining a safe social distance. Once shown inside we were impressed by how lovely everything was and also by how immaculately clean everything was as well; which made us feel safe and secure considering the circumstances. There was everything we needed with all the amenities; and more including delicious welcoming pastries too. The cottage is located in the pretty village of Bladon and a short walk to the grounds of Blenheim Palace (something we enjoyed each day) and short drives away from many other attractions in the area as well. We would happily come and stay again as the only downside we felt is that we would of loved to have stayed longer!

Excellent accommodation, very comfortable and cosy. We were greeted by Janet and Mark, who were very good hosts, giving us lots of information on what to see and do in the area. Our preference of milk along with tea cakes, biscuits and fresh fruit were provided on arrival. We had an enjoyable five days and would like to return someday
