Fabulous few days stay at Prince cottage for our 3 generation party. The downstairs bedroom and en-suite was perfect for my 83 year old mother. The accommodation was clean, comfortable, well equipped and perfectly located for a visit to Oxford and the Cotswolds. Just what we needed after a difficult few weeks.

Overall a great stay. For us it would have been good to know that due to the thickness of the barn walls, there was no phone/text reception. New pillows and duvets are needed. Also new kitchen utensils.
