Barn
This beautifully renovated barn is situated in a delightful rural position with views uphill to the pretty English village of Brill with its historic windmill. The barn comfortably accommodates 4 people with room for a fifth if necessary on a futon (under 12 years only). Set in 10 acres, there is plenty of room to stretch your legs and to park vehicles. Ox House is ideally situated for easy access to London, Oxford, the Cotswolds, Bicester Village shopping and the many activities that are available in the area for adults, teenagers and children. Please be aware that in this rural location there are livestock nearby which need feeding - therefore the farmer may be visible occassionally in the vicinity....This beautifully renovated barn is situated in a delightful rural position with views uphill to the pretty English village of Brill with its historic windmill.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

About the neighbourhood
Set in the heart of England, Ox House is idyllically and ideally located on the Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire border. Six miles away is the pretty Market Town of Thame with a host of independent retailers, a lively and colourful market on Tuesdays and a choice of 3 supermarkets. Bicester, a market town also, is now better known for its Designer Outlet Shopping Centre open 7 days a week. For a more cultural experience the National Trust Properties Waddesdon Manor, Claydon House, Stowe and Boarstall Duck Decoy are nearby and the historic and fascinating City of Oxford is only 12 miles away. Also on our doorstep is The Buckinghamshire Railway Centre, frequently visited by Thomas the Tank Engine and Waterperry House and Gardens which is host to the hugely popular Art in Action event in July.
Getting around
A car is a necessity although the village is within walking distance.
