“Perfect combination of rustic charm and mod cons”
Reviewed 7 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We spent 8 days in Sweep Cottage over Christmas and New Year holidays. It was a perfect combination of rustic charm and all mod cons for a great stay. The cottage is tasteful, comfortable and clean, it is close to all the buses to Oxford and the Airports/London. Also plenty of cafes, restaurants and grocery stores in short walking distance.

Peter and Julie are wonderful welcoming hosts. Thank you!

“Very comfortable and attractive cottage”
Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

This cottage is a little gem! It is situated in the old part of Headington which still has an attractive 'English country village' atmosphere whilst being conveniently close to all amenities of the more modern high street. The bus stop for Oxford is literally a minute and a half from the front door and the supermarket (Waitrose) is a matter of a few hundred yards. For those that prefer to walk, the trip on foot into Oxford is about 30 minutes (slighty longer on the uphill return journey). In Old Headington there are two very attractive pubs - we ate at the 'Black Boy' which we would most certainly recommend.

The cottage itself has been thoughtfully and most attractively renovated to a high standard. It is equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. It also has private off-street parking - anyone who knows Oxford will appreciate what a rare bonus that is! Booking was easy and the owners were more than helpful at all times.

Overall, a delightful place for two to stay and most highly recommended.

“Such a gorgeous place to stay”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Sweeps Cottage is part of the historic village of Headington, converted so very cleverly a couple of years ago. (Though everything is so clean and bright, I thought it might have been done just a month ago) Perfect spot for two people - ample living space downstairs, with laundry and toilet as well, and bedroom with bathroom upstairs.everythings is there - including all the instruction books for the appliances, so no guessing how to turn the oven on! A wonderfully relaxing place to stay, and most hospitable hosts.

Liked best: It had such a comfortable feel to it - very well designed, with very effective use of space.
