“Love the Barn”
Reviewed 1 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Ian and Georgina were wonderful hosts. Wheatley is a georgeous little place and the Barn had everything we needed. Really grateful for the large washer, dryer and dishwasher. Cost Cutters was just across the road for emergency groceries and restaurants, pub and bakery within 20 metres.

Ian and Georgina were incredible hosts that made us feel at home. Wheatley is a quiet village with all the requisite English charms. Highly, highly recommended!

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from 3 nights in this lovely cottage. Its a great location to stay when visiting Oxford. We were able to drive into Oxford and park on the Sunday, but on the Monday when traffic is back to normal we took the park & ride option which only took about 15 mins to get to the centre. Wheatley village is beautiful with friendly pubs and a few restaurants, the sort of place you would love to retire to. It was always nice to come back to Wheatley after the hustle of Oxford. The cottage had everything you would need, it was clean and very cosy. The owners were delightful too and very helpful if you needed them. We would highly recommend The Barn.

“Idyllic”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014
1
person found this review helpful

I can't add much to the other reviews here, just to repeat how friendly and welcoming Ian and Georgina are and how cosy and well-appointed the Barn is. I would echo that the wifi is very weak (get a repeater Ian!) and that a parking space would have been nice but neither things are dealbreakers and we definitely intend to stay there again! On the plus side, considering we booked late and for the August bank holiday, it was very reasonably priced compared to the alternatives. All in all, I have no hesitation in recommending The Barn.
