a welcoming oasis in a week of rain!

The Bothy was a wonderful, small but perfectly formed, retreat which simply demanded that we relaxed. Both us and the dog were welcomed with a friendly offering of freshly baked cake and a bottle of wine - not that the dog got any of that of course! The whole conversion was well planned out and 'luxury living in a small space'. It just did not feel cluttered even though the kitchen area, living area and bed space are all in one. Upon leaving I managed to leave my engagement ring on the windowsill but the owner soon retrieved it and posted it safely back to me. We will definitely be going back there again and it would be brilliant if the weather was as welcoming as the Bothy!

Quirky, quaint and quality

The three of us (including dog) had a lovely relaxing time here. Very friendly and helpful owners. Nothing too much trouble. Great base to visit Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton in Marsh, Chipping Norton, Bicester. Couldn't visit everywhere on our list because of the dog, but Birdland (Bourton) allowed dogs on leads. Would visit again.

Cosy Roost

This is great find, very well converted, cosy, well equipped and full of character. It makes a very peaceful base to explore the area

Romantic, but have they changed the fridge..?

Having got married in Sept 2014 we spent our first New Year as husband & wife at The Bothy, but left after three nights instead of the five we had booked. The property is cosy and is ideally located in lovely countryside very close to Stratford. However it was difficult to use the shower due to the restrictions of the sloping ceiling. Similar problems are experienced using the wc while standing! BUT the main problem was the fridge which kept us awake at night for two nights. It is difficult to imagine how it could be so loud. On the third night we turned it off and ruined the food we had brought with us - so we headed home. Other guests had noted the problem with the fridge in the guestbook but this had seemingly been ignored. So do enjoy your stay, but check that they've changed the fridge before you book...
