Very warm and tidy.
Lovely hosts and Cottage. Will be even better when there is perhaps some privacy screening from the main house and maybe some outdoor seating.

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely perfect getaway with everything you'd need
We had an absolutely wonderful stay and regret we couldn't extend our stay there. We will definitely stay here again in the future if we happen to be in the area. It was clean, cozy and well kept and organized. The homeowners are super friendly and the small town of Oxford is just minutes away. This is a modern homestead with everything you would need for a perfect getaway. Thank you again for hosting us.
