“Amazing Stay in Historic English Village Outside Blenheim Palace”
Reviewed 2 January 2018 for a stay in September 2017

My wife, small child and I stayed at Browns Lane for 3 months, and we would stay there again. The historical village of Woodstock is charming, and quintessentially English. We lived down a peaceful side street with good parking, and were two blocks from several pubs, a postoffice, small (but decent) grocery store, hair salon...basically everything you need within walking distance. The apartment itself is oozing with charm, and very well appointed and laid out. A good kitchen, full size tub and comfy furniture. The host left us alone but was prompt to our email questions, and got things taken care of. However, we had no problems. They came and changed the linens every week. Also, did I mention the place is 200 meters from the gate of fabulous Blenheim Palace? For the price of a one day entrance, you can get a free upgrade to a year-pass, so we did fantastic stroller walks in the bucolic grounds daily, watching out for sheep and pheasant traffic. The Palace itself is grand, and one can sense Churchill's presence in the stones. Don't miss the free organ concerts in the library every Friday and Sunday. It's one of the most beautiful scenes for a concert I've encountered. In short, we would definitely stay here again, and I would highly recommend it.

We've been spending Christmas in England for decades, and our stay at Browns Lane Cottage was one of our best. Well appointed kitchen, fireplace, immaculate condition of cottage, lovely bathroom and bedrooms, responsive, friendly and helpful letting agency are just a few of the reasons we will be returning to Woodstock and Browns Lane. And just a few minutes walk to the jaw-dropping magnificent Blenheim Palace and its convenient and beautiful walking paths...terrific! Convenient bus service, two! bookstores, pubs and restaurants (albeit crowded over the holiday weeks), great shops. The negative is what has already been mentioned...the parking was a significant problem, probably because of the holiday. But the bus service is so good that next time we won't bother with a rental car. One request...it would be very helpful to have a coat rack (tree) right inside the front door. Add that and all would be perfect.

“very enjoyable, great location, lovely cottage”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The cottage is exactly as described. Lovely feel & plenty of room for four. Comfortable living in an excellent location. Only drawback is the random parking. ie. get back late and no close parks - but usually found a spot not too far away. Plenty of local shops, cafes & pubs. Kitchen perfectly adequate for home cooking also. We were in mid-winter but found the cottage cosy. The Christmas tree - all lit up was a delight upon arrival and added a special touch to our stay.

“Attractive and Relaxing”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This two bedroom rental is lovely to come home to after a busy day exploring Oxford, London or perhaps the Cotswolds. Woodstock is a very pretty village and well connected by bus. Plenty of places to eat and most shopping requirements are a short walk away. Parking is convenient.
The house is three storey with a steep winding staircase so accessibility may be an issue however the furniture is extremely comfortable. The kitchen is well-appointed with a small conservatory in which to eat. The main bedroom has a very large double bed. There is second toilet and wash basin and then my favourite a separate shower!
