“very comfortable cottage once inside”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Very comfortable cottage once inside,handily positioned for railway station,cinema,local shops,park and several pubs.We used the train a couple of times to visit Oxford and Reading,drove to London another day and got the tube into centre,visited Stonehenge and several other good trips.We used the cinema and a very handily placed swimming pool with waves which the kids loved on a few of the rainy days,also a nice park.Cottage brilliantly positioned so not to far to travel when exploring surrounding areas,much to see and do in the surrounding areas.Thank you Olga for the use of your cottage which enabled us to have a brilliant family holiday with lots of fun days out!!!
