Bridge Cottage is a renovated 3 bedroom canalside country cottage. This lovely traditional holiday cottage has slate floors throughout the lower level, leading from the cosy sitting room into a snug and welcoming kitchen / diner. Along with full radiator central heating all through the property, the sitting room has a charming solid fuel stove where you can sit back and enjoy comfy evenings in front of the fire.

This waterside country cottage has 3 bedrooms accommodating up to five guests: one double with TV, one twin with TV and a separate single. The family bathroom has a walk-in shower. Bed linen and towels are included. The holiday cottage comes equipped with Freeview TV and complimentary WiFi.

Dogs are made welcome and to the front of the cottage there is a low walled garden area, laid to lawn, with garden furniture provided (a BBQ can be supplied on request). The cottage itself is flanked by open fields to one side and an attractive canal wharf on the other, with colourful narrowboats regularly puttering by. There is private gated car parking.

Bridge Cottage provides a perfect base for visiting the nearby City of Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Silverstone and for exploring the beautiful Cotswold villages that are nearby.

The canal wharf also operates a little narrowboat called 'Comet' which can be hired for the day during your stay, if not already booked. Why not enjoy a day’s cruise along the scenic South Oxford Canal, stopping at a pub for lunch or for a traditional cream tea, then returning to the Wharf around 5.00pm.
