Location Information

Meadow Cottage is located approximately two miles from the bustling village of Eynsham, itself situated halfway between Oxford and Witney. The village boasts a number of pubs, restaurants and takeaways, and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. With the River Thames passing close to the cottage, you can pick up The Thames Path at Pinkhill Lock and enjoy a pleasant river walk in either direction.
For your shopping essentials, there is a Co-op in Eynsham and larger supermarkets in both Witney and Oxford.
Eynsham is perfectly placed for exploring the magnificent city of Oxford, historic Blenheim Palace, the shopper's paradise of Bicester Village, and the many delightful towns and villages of the Cotswolds such as Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water.


We had a wonderful stay in Meadow Cottage, which is located in the beautiful countryside close to Oxford and the Cotswolds. The cottage is lovely decorated and has all the amenities and excellent beds. Small detail is that if you're over 170 cms the showerhead is a tad low. Would definately recommend for a stay.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are thrilled to hear that you had a lovely stay and enjoyed exploring the beautiful countryside that the Cotswolds has to offer.

Meadow Cottage was a handy spot for a short stay in the Cotswolds area. When we arrived, it was clean, tidy and warm, despite the cold weather. Contact from the housekeeper was very welcoming and she answered our questions via text, promptly. The cottage is quite small, there was only just enough room in the living room for the 4 of us, so I'm not sure it would have been very comfortable for 6 people. The kitchen was well enough equipped for 4 although a microwave would have been a useful addition. There was very little storage for clothing in the bedrooms which would have been irritating had we been staying longer and brought more clothing with us - certainly if we'd needed to hang anything up. Despite those small niggles, we had a lovely stay though, the views from each room are lovely and you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, even though Oxford is only a short drive away. We even caught the train into London one day, which was very handy.

Thank you for your kind review and feedback Rachel. We are really pleased to hear you had a lovely stay and enjoyed the location of the property. I hope our description of the property was able to suitably advise you of what the property does provide in terms of kitchen and bedroom facilities and hope to welcome you to the Cotswolds again very soon!

Meadow cottage was a conveniently located cottage tucked away down a quiet country lane. We stayed for 7 nights and it was for 2 adults, a 3 year old and a dog. Although the cottage can sleep six we would say it would be “cozy” if fully occupied mainly because there was only one bathroom but for us this was fine. The main points we would make to improve the experience would be as follows:- 1. A microwave in the kitchen would have made our lives a lot easier having a toddler 2. The down light led lighting was constantly flickering to the extent we have to turn off. 3. A comment on another review about access to the kitchen door. This would have made life easier if we could have used it as we had the dog. 4. The dishwasher was hit and miss in terms of getting things clean. Apart from the above aspects everything was as expected and we had access to a large garden for our son to play in and any issues we had during the stay were dealt with quickly.If you enjoy country walks the cottage allows you to head off in virtually any direction to find a good walk across lots of open fields and down to the Thames etc. If you have a dog though be mindful there are lots of sheep around! The location gave us quick access to Blenheim palace, Oxford and lots of other cotswold highlights.

Thank you Paul for your review, we are pleased you had a pleasant time at Meadow Cottage and found it to be well located and quiet. We thank you for your comments and will share your feed back to have the issues looked at. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
