Home farm is a lovely cosy cottage in a great location, we visited Blenheim Palace (Just a nice walk away through the palace grounds) and the lovely towns of Woodstock and Witney and we did the short trip to Bicester for a good days shopping at the Bicester Village and then finished off our stay with a day out in the fabulous city of Oxford (taxi or bus ride away) Oxford has amazing architecture and there are plenty of things to see and do. All of our days out were finished off relaxing in the cottage in the evening with a glass of wine curled up in the living room in front of the log burner, the bedrooms are spacious and comfy and there is everything you need in the cottage for a great stay. Kelvin & Kate make you feel so welcome and are on hand next door if you need anything. We would definitely stay at home farm again if we revisit the area.

We've really enjoyed our second stay here. Lovely farmhouse style cottage, easy reach to Oxford and on the edge of the Cotswolds. The owners Kelvin and Kate live next door and very helpful. Loads of places to eat and drink in nearby Woodstock.

Dear Benedict, Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. The cottage is perfectly placed, in a beautiful village yet only minutes to Woodstock, Oxford and trains into central London. We look forward to welcoming you back for your third stay! Kindest regards Caroline Guest Services Short Let Space

Beautiful 2 bedroom cottage set in Bladon and within 2 minutes walk of the grounds of Blenheim Palace. The cottage is beautifully presented with big spacious rooms that are well furnished and full of character. The cottage is clean and the bathrooms are good. A great Kitchen for cooking in and if you prefer to go out there are loads of great pubs/restaurants in a 5 mile radius the nearest of which are in Woodstock which is a beautiful old market town. The owners were very helpful and live next door. We will be staying again

Excellent house. It was warm and inviting. The welcome pack was fantastic and the house was very clean. The internet worked well and we would rent it again if we visit the area in the future.

I would give the cottage itself 4.5 stars - I have taken a half point off because the short let space booking process was troublesome and meant the online price was different from the final balance, which was a bit of a faff at the time, but not a major issue. We had a week in Home Farm after Christmas and it proved a very relaxing break where we made lots of memories. The cottage provided a luxury base for visiting family and friends. It was very comfortable, and well appointed with good faciltities throughout - a cut above your normal holiday cottage rental. The owner/s live next door and were very nice and helpful as well. There is a lot to do in the area, and Blenheim Palace grounds and Churchill's grave are a few minutes walk away, and a reasonable local pub. Woodstock itself is a lovely village with plenty of nice pubs and restaurants. Being allowed to bring our dog was a real bonus, only as the area outside is not 100% dog proof we had to join him for his occassional trip outside - which was only as issue because it was soo cold! We will definately be back.

We loved our stay at the Home Farm Cottage. We had four adults on vacation visiting my son at Oxford. There was plenty of room for all of us and ample privacy. The kitchen is very large and well stocked with everything we needed to cook in or bring food in. The furniture is all comfortable, sturdy and plentiful. The bedrooms are quite large and well furnished. We met Kelvin, our host, and his lovely family the first night we arrived. He showed us around the house and explained all the features. The wood stove was stocked with wood and matches, and the warm fire in the mornings provided a nice atmosphere. Some of the windows are not sealed well but this is to be expected on a house this age. I expect it could be more of an issue in the winter, though we really didn't have any trouble keeping warm in late October. One of the showers is a little unusual and care must be taken to avoid collecting water on the floor and in the window sill. But all the plumbing and bathroom fixtures are quite modern and appear to be in great shape. My son stayed overnight with us for a couple of nights, and Kelvin was very accommodating providing extra linens, towels and pillows for use with a cot which we noticed in the back storage. There's a lovely pub within walking distance about 100 yards down the road. The food there is quite decent, better than we expected, and the proprietor is very friendly. Blenheim Palace can be accessed just around the corner from the pub on foot and there are many paths available for running or walking. We found it a bit harrowing to turn out of the driveway onto the main road without scraping the fence posts, but that is probably more to do with our unfamiliarity the large rental car and right-hand driving than anything else. A convex mirror across the road might be helpful to better observe oncoming traffic, though. The flat is very tastefully decorated in the style of a period farm house, but the fixtures and conveniences are all modern and in good working order. The house is in a residential area. The road out front gets a lot of traffic, but the large front yard is enclosed by a fence and the traffic noise was never issue for us.

Home Farm Cottage is a lovely place to stay with great en suite rooms, very well appointed and very comfortable. Really liked the character and feel of the house. All things were in place for us including a welcome basket and beautiful flowers and the owners are incredibly helpful and welcoming. Lots to do in the area and good transport links. Nearby shops and restaurants and a pub within walking distance too. Some road noise but quiet at night.

We booked a last minute stay at the Home Farm Cottage and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. Kelvin was most welcoming and even managed to organise some basic provisions (tea, coffee, milk, eggs etc), despite having such little notice of our arrival! The home itself is fantastic, very large with lovely decorations, incredibly comfortable beds and a fully equipped kitchen. The location is right next to Blenheim Castle and within easy distance of Woodstock which has lovely pubs and restaurants (which Kelvin recommended some great ones for us to sample). Overall, an excellent stay and we would love to go back for a longer trip next time!
