Radcot Bridge Cottage
A gated entrance off the main road opens on to a shingle forecourt with space for three cars. From the forecourt a couple of steps lead up to the terrace and the stable door which opens into the generous-sized, fully equipped, dining kitchen. The kitchen has views overlooking the garden and river and has an eight-ring induction hob, single oven, dishwasher, and fridge/ freezer. A spacious sitting room runs the full width of the cottage with sofas grouped around a wood burning stove and television at one end and armchairs ready for reading or playing board games at the other. Off the hallway is a utility room, with washing machine and tumble dryer, which doubles as a useful third shower room.
Upstairs the main bedroom (Wayland), with walk-through dressing room and ensuite shower room, has double doors onto a west-facing balcony with glorious views over the river and countryside. Two further bedrooms (Skylark & Berners) share an interconnecting Jack & Jill shower room all with downstream river views. All bedrooms have five-foot, king size, beds.
A decked terrace looks out onto a cottage-style private garden from where canoes and paddleboards can be launched into the river. Parents with small children and dog owners should take note and be aware that the garden has unguarded/ unrestricted access to the water.
The cottage is in a rural location and partially 'off-grid'; all water is pumped from a trickle-well in the garden, there is a biological treatment plant, and there’s no landline telephone or WiFi although most mobile networks can pick up 3G. A Bluetooth-enabled sound system in the kitchen can stream music to speakers in the kitchen, sitting room and master bedroom while a laptop can be connected to the television with the supplied HDMI cable.
We allow one dog to come with guests in the cottage. Please message before booking so we can send you our pet policy.
Between October and March the woodburner will be laid ready for lighting and there will be a basket of logs, we can supply additional logs if required.
Course fishing is allowed between 16th June to 14th March. The river a mile either side of the cottage is managed by the Radcot Angling Club and we can issue their fishing permit which is £2.50 per day. The key to a garage is available on request for guests who would like a secure space where they can store bicycles, paddleboards, canoes, or fishing equipment..
Radcot Bridge Cottage is ideally suited for walks along the Thames Path and as a base for visiting nearby Kelmscott Manor, Buscot Park, Blenheim Palace, Burford and Oxford. The public house Ye Olde Swan is a two-minute walk.
