Location Information

Blenheim Cottage is located in the picturesque market town of Woodstock, a vibrant town benefitting from a variety of popular country pubs, restaurants, boutique shops and galleries. Surrounded by unspoilt countryside, there are many footpaths on its doorstep, and guests are able to stroll through the peaceful lanes and enjoy the stunning period buildings and architecture of the 18th century town hall and the impressive Church of St Mary Magdalene, the early English windows and musical clock.
For your shopping essentials, there is a Co-op in Woodstock and a Tesco Superstore in Kidlington.
Woodstock is perfectly placed for visiting popular attractions including historic Blenheim Palace, with free access to the public grounds just a three minute walk from the property, the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Asthall Manor. The much-loved towns and villages of Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford, Cirencester and Bourton-on-the-Water are also easily accessible.


We stayed at Blenheim Cottage in Woodstock for a week this August. The place is a good base for exploring Blenheim Palace, the Cotswolds and Oxford. The Cottage was clean and cozy, big enough for two people and it seems to still have some authentic features like the windows. It also has a lovely garden, accessible via a steep staircase. Furthermore there was enough parking space up the road. Upon arrival we found the necessary basics like tea, coffee, milk, salt and pepper and cleaning supplies. Alas there were no tea towels. The bathroom was clean and spacious. There were two big fluffy bath towels and one small towel. Those towels were for one week. Luckily there was a washing machine in the shed just outside the house. We used the bedroom on the first floor and the bed was comfortable. As it was very warm that week we slept with the windows open as the Cottage has no airconditioning. Because of the thick walls it was always rather cool inside. All in all Blenheim Cottage is lovely place to stay.

Thank you for the great review, Ingrid. We're pleased that you found Blenheim Cottage to be a lovely place to stay and the perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds and Oxford. We hope that you will be back to stay again sometime soon.

A cosy cotswolds cottage with lots of charm. Perfect location for exploring both Oxford and the Cotswolds and right on Blenhiem palace doorstep. Plenty of places to eat on evenings or great little kitchen for cooking a meal in the cottage. Only concern was that the staircase is very steep and uneven so would recommend only for families with older children and older persons to be very careful.

Thank you for your lovely review Jessica! It is great to hear you enjoyed the prime location of the cottage and appreciate you highlighting the staircase. We hope you appreciate that our description highlights this property quirk to ensure guests can make an informed decision at the time of booking. We really hope to welcome you and your guests back to the Cotswolds soon!

Why not head to Blenheim estate and visit the Harry Potter Tree!  There are plenty of trees on the Blenheim estate but none so famous as the Harry Potter Tree! It’s one of the most iconic trees that live on the estate as it has a huge gaping hole on the front and it sits besides the Blenheim Lake!
