The Barn [thebarn-wheatley-oxford] is a detached stone building dating back to 1640; fully double glazed, centrally heated and lovingly converted into a two bedroomed, two reception room dwelling with all required appliances. There is a TV, blue-ray DVD, CD & tape deck and a keyboard for guest's use. All children are welcome but the barn has a spiral staircase which may not be safe for uncontrolled toddlers or the elderly with poor balance. The Barn is securely enclosed on our land, our garden is walled and available to guests with free apples - in season. We have a friendly dog who in summer is often in the garden. Parking is available on the road or a free car park is available within a short walking distance. There are lovely walks and it is also possible to walk on public footpaths fr...The Barn [thebarn-wheatley-oxford] is a detached stone building dating back to 1640; fully double glazed, centrally heated and lovingly converted into a two bedroomed, two reception room dwelling with all required appliances.

The Barn is securely enclosed on our land, our garden is walled and available to guests with free apples - in season. We have a friendly dog who in summer is often in the garden. Parking is available on the road or a free car park is available within a short walking distance. There are lovely walks and it is also possible to walk on public footpaths from Wheatley to the 117 hectare Shotover Country Park to enjoy spectacular views of South Oxfordshire or quiet secluded animal habitats. Wheatley is well serviced village and has a butcher, bakery, coffee shop, pharmacy, antique shop, churches, Co-Operative & Costcutter food shops, hair salons, a General Practice, a complementary medicine centre, the Oxford School for English, a children's playground, and a Post Office with currency exchange facilities. In addition there is an Indian restaurant in walking distance - which also has takeaway facilities. There is also a Chinese takeaway and a fish & chip shop within walking distance. Wheatley has three pubs within walking distance - including at least one real ale pub and pub food is available. A large Asda supermarket - with the cheapest petrol in the area - is about a 5 minute drive away. Wheatley, founded in the Anglo-Saxon era, lies 6 miles south-east of the centre of Oxford with easy access to/from the M40. There are two frequent bus services linking Wheatley and Oxford making it simple to visit Oxford's treasured colleges, museums (Pitt Rivers, Ashmolean, Natural History, History of Science), the many university parks, or the theatre (try the Creation Theatre Company). Buses are also available to some surrounding small villages - but these are less frequent. There are every 15 minutes bus links between London and Oxford and a regular service between Heathrow/Gatwick and Oxford - one of the stops is close to Wheatley - so it should be possible, to collect guests without cars, by prior arrangement. If you come by car Bicester village with its discounted fashion designer boutiques is a simple 20 minute drive from Wheatley and there are numerous ancient Cotswold villages to visit less than an hours drive away. Guests who have stayed in the Barn have also visited Stonehenge and Bath with ease as well as the beautiful Waterperry gardens. More

Very handy location for Oxford and the Cotswolds with Blenheim Palace nearby and good roads to places further away north, south, east and west. Very nicely decorated with the family's own art giving a lovely Bohemian atmosphere. The owners are quite charming, friendly and helpful....More

Ideally-situated for touring Oxford, the Cotswolds and London. Transportation availability superb. Charming and well-equipped home away from home, with lots of nearby amenities in the village.
