Oxford Chalet First Floor Apartment For Rental Near London

February 04, 2010 | | Comments 0

Nestled in the treetops 6 miles from Oxford city centre which lies on the edge of the Cotswolds, is this stunning, wooden chalet-style accommodation.

The Oxford Chalet is a first floor, open plan apartment for two adults only. An ideal romantic, honeymoon destination or holiday getaway, our boutique-style property offers unique and sumptuously furnished accommodation. This luxurious suite is in a peaceful, countryside location and has all your self-catering needs covered, yet we are within easy reach of some of the most famous restaurants in England hosted by Raymond Blanc, Jamie Oliver and Heston Bluhmenthal!

NB: In the interests of safety and due to the general layout of the building, plus the many water features in our gardens, we are unable to facilitate children or pets. In addition, there are two staircases into the property with no lift or wheelchair access.

Oxford is known as the City of Spires and is a short bus or taxi ride from this Oxford Retreat. Hop on and off a traditional open top double decker bus for a superb guided tour of the colleges and spend your day taking in the amazing architectural buildings. With a wealth of museums (some free), there’s so much to explore when you delve into Oxford’s ancient history. Or take a punt along the river, then moor up for a picnic in one of the magnificent nature parks. If you prefer to cycle, there is a very good network of cycle tracks and we have bicycles for your convenience.

North Oxford is the gateway to the Cotswolds with stunning ‘chocolate box’ thatched cottages in some of the the most picturesque villages in England. With superb eating houses and country pubs, you’ll never be short of somewhere to stop and rest before moving on to your next destination.

South Oxford is where you’ll find Henley on Thames. Famous for the annual Regatta, pleasure boats amble along this busy tourist waterway that winds along the beautiful Oxford/Berkshire countryside. The wildlife is abundant and we personally saw four Kingfishers in one evening last summer!! Many famous restaurants are dotted in and around Henley and the nearby riverside town of Marlow. However, closer to Oxford is the exceptional Manoir Aux ‘Quat Saisons, owned and run by Monsieur Raymond Blanc and his esteemed workforce whose service and quality of food is second to none. If you wish to sample a less formal example of his cuisine in Oxford city, there is Le Petit Blanc. Other exceptional restaurants in town include Jamie Oliver’s Jaimie’s Italian, Brown’s and the Lemon Tree, to name but a few. There are several Golf Courses nearby, including the Internationally acclaimed Oxfordshire Golf Course in Thame 8 miles away.

Three miles from the Oxford Retreat is another treasure – The Crazy Bear Public House and Restaurant which boasts it’s own organic farm shop, where you can buy all your supplies for sumptuous meals to cook in the Retreats’ well equipped kitchen! The Crazy Bear offers an A La Carte menu in it’s extraordinary upstairs restarant and authentic Thai cuisine in the very unusual downstairs restaurant. Whichever you choose, it’s a very different experience! Jazz singers and bands are a perfect accompaniment to their Sunday lunch specials and these are hosted in the large but very sociable Morrocan room.

To the East of Oxford lies the Vale of the White horse, where you can walk for days and days on the Ridgeway path. There’s horse racing at Newbury and Ascott Racecourses.

London’s busy Capital is a mere 55 miles away, or a one hour train journey from Haddenham Parkway to Marylebone ! It’s a really easy route with many attractions such as Madame Tussaurds a stones throw from the station and everything else can be reached by tube or taxi.
