Accessed from Couching Street via a small secure passageway – one enters the apartment up a flight of stairs.

The Breakfast Room comes with fridge and kettle. As Pineapple is in the centre of Watlington, fresh bread, patisserie, fruit and other produce is available 7 days a week. We leave guests cereals, tea and coffee. There is an Indian Restaurant three doors away in one direction and an excellent fish and chip shop in the other direction. There are three pubs serving food within a couple of minutes walk. The upper floor – accessed from the sitting room – you will find a lovely quiet ‘Reading area’ and the second double bedroom – both having views up towards Watlington Hill. This apartment gives you the best of both worlds for your visit – located just 2 miles from Junction 6 of The M40 motorway but within less than a five-minute walk or drive, you are out into the lovely Oxfordshire countryside – with the famous Chiltern Hills on your doorstep and the Dreaming Spires of Oxford less than half an hour away by car. Your Hosts, Karla – who is originally from Bavaria - and Martin, have lived in Watlington for nearly 40 years and would recommend that during your visit you spend some of the time exploring in this very special little town – taking a walk through history as you go – the medieval layout of the town can still be found and you will see the C16th Town Hall - Tudor Herringbone brickwork in the building that now houses the local Butcher’s shop – late C15th and early C16th houses sitting close by elegant 18th and 19th Century Merchant’s houses. You will be assured of a warm welcome from the owners of the growing range of specialist shops and will be spoilt for choice with regards to the number of excellent eateries on offer in the town – ranging from traditional English Pubs to Thai and Indian cuisine and amazing coffees and ‘lite bites’ available at Deli Café in the High Street. Karla & Martin look forward to welcoming you to The Pineapple Apartment and welcome any potential guests' questions. More

About the neighbourhood
Martin’s home is located in Oxfordshire, England, United Kingdom. Watlington is at the foot of the Chiltern Hills and situated just off the London to Oxford M40 motorway. The picturesque area will be familiar to fans of 'Midsomer Murders' and 'Morse'. In spite of our proximity to London and Oxford we are surrounded by wonderful walking and cycling countryside. Henley on Thames, 20 minutes drive away, is not only a beautiful River Thames town, but is famous for the Henley Royal Regatta, Ladies Regatta and the Henley Festival.
Getting around
Watlington is not spoilt for public transport. There is the 'Oxford Tube' bus which runs to London from J6 of the M40, 5km away. This runs every 10-20 minutes 24/7. There is also a bus to and from Oxford hourly. Street parking and the public car park are free.
