We were attending a family party in nearby Kingston Blount and consider ourselves very fortunate to have booked Kate's Cottage at the last minute. Handily placed in a very pleasant Oxfordshire village the cottage is also an excellent base for exploring the Chiltern countryside (eg Watlington Hill) as well as places such as Oxford and Henley. The cottage's spec is to a very high standard - a real home from home - with the recent renovation having been immaculately completed showing both imagination and practical sense. The garden is small but perfectly formed and we really enjoyed sitting amongst the differing fruits and vegetables enjoying a glass or two of wine in the evening sunshine. Our Australian hosts seem to have taken rather well to village life and their enthusiasm for the area, and Watlington in particular, was a delight to witness - they were exceptionally helpful when asked but at no time did they intrude during our short stay - the perfect hosts !! We cannot praise this property too highly - it is perfect for those who may be working in the area as well as for tourists exploring Watlington and its environs. Our only regret was that we didn't have longer to enjoy both the cottage and the Oxfordshire countryside.
