'The Doghouse' is a bespoke oak building, providing space, privacy and luxurious comfort for two guests. Enjoy an extended weekend away, with early self-check-in and late check out, or special offers on 3 or 4 night weekday stays (full details below.)
Situated close to Blenheim Palace estate, and just 7 miles west of Oxford, The Doghouse is an ideal self-catering base for Blenheim or Oxford events, or simply enjoying the countryside, Cotswold pubs, and local market towns.

Die Unterkunft
COVID-19 AWARENESS: We have adopted Air Bnb's recommended 72 hr booking buffer policy to safeguard guests and ourselves; mandatory self check-in accommodates social distancing (PLEASE travel with the instructions provided!) and the property is deep cleaned between each reservation. All linens are treated with Dettol laundry cleanser, surfaces, including light switches, remote controls, door knobs etc are cleaned with anti bacterial/viral cleaner. Windows will be left open prior to your arrival (weather permitting.)

LOCATION:
Situated overlooking green fields, The Doghouse provides a peaceful, comfortable and luxurious base from which to explore Oxford, her villages, and the surrounding countryside. Our guests enjoy 60 sq m of space over two levels, and a private patio area. Our guest reviews speak for themselves!

OUR RATES AND CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUTS:
We offer early self-check in from noon onwards on Fridays, and 6pm checkout on Sunday evening so you can make full use of the property for a real weekend away. During the week, our nightly rates are reduced from Monday to Thursday nights (minimum 3 night stay) with a special offer of 4 nights (Monday to Thursday) for £500 - please ask for this offer at the time of booking. (Please note: Friday check out time is always 11:00 hrs to accommodate incoming weekend guests)

THE ACCOMMODATION:
The first-floor bedroom is accessed via a wooden spiral staircase, and has a (UK) king-size bed. There is a luggage rack for your suitcase, and limited drawer space, so we are probably best suited to weekend breaks and short stays. A small cupboard on the ground floor will accommodate hanging clothes.

The ground-floor living area is open-plan: The kitchen is equipped with an induction hob, electric kettle, powerful microwave/convection oven, toaster, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, and there is a breakfast bar with stools. A Nespresso machine and capsules are provided, and a cafetière with fresh coffee, too. Tea bags, fresh milk and biscuits are also provided for your stay. Condiments and oils are provided for cooking.
A large flat-screen TV (Sky included) is wall-mounted in the comfy living area, with a DVD player and a selection of DVDs (or guests can bring their own); also an Apple TV unit. WiFi is provided for our guests, with a large desk space and printer, for those who need to work! Finally, the bathroom has a spacious glass shower cubicle (towels, shower gel, body lotion, shampoo & conditioner all provided), wash basin and lavatory.

The Doghouse has cosy underfloor heating, and a (largely decorative) bio-fuel fire place for the winter; a tall Dyson fan is provided during hot weather.



Outside, a small, secluded patio area is equipped with a garden sofa, parasol and bistro table with chairs for two, all overlooking fields where horses or ewes and their lambs regularly graze, silhouetted against the light of the sun which sets beyond. There are resident buzzards in the trees around the adjoining fields, and a barn owl patrols the stretch of ground immediately behind The Doghouse. Fox cubs are regularly seen playing in the field on early summer evenings, and up to five roe-deer are regular passers-by on most days.

Zugang für Gäste
There is off-road private parking at the property. Guests need to walk across the grass to access The Doghouse, so we recommend decent shoes in wet conditions! Full access instructions are provided on booking.
Guests have complete privacy, and are free to come and go as they please as the Doghouse is entirely separate from the main house. You are welcome to use our tennis court - please bring your own racquets and balls.

Weitere wichtige Hinweise
There is a nearby supermarket (5 mins drive) which is comprehensively stocked, and bakes fresh bread, and excellent croissants and pastries on the premises from 07.00 every day (08.00 on Sundays).

Lage

North Leigh, Oxfordshire, Vereinigtes Königreich

Our house is situated on the fringe of the Blenheim Palace estate. The main palace site is a 10 minute drive away, making The Doghouse an ideal base for attending events at Blenheim, including private weddings, the CLA Game Fair, Classic Car Shows, Concerts, Horse trials etc. We are within an easy 15 minute drive to the Park'n'Ride stations for buses into Oxford City centre for the colleges, museums, theatres etc, and there are numerous fine country pubs in the various surrounding villages.

The local railway station at Hanborough (5 min drive away) serves London Paddington in just over an hour on the train; Oxford Parkway Station (15 minute drive away) serves London Marylebone (1 hr), and it's an 8 minute journey on this line to Bicester Village. Buses leave Thornhill Park'n'Ride (a 20 minute drive from us) for London Victoria very frequently, round the clock.

There are numerous lovely walks starting from right outside The Doghouse, across fields, and through woods, alongside the river. The Wychwood Way - a 37 mile signposted trail, which incorporates 10 shorter walks, passes through our land, 200 m from The Doghouse, The substantial remains of a Roman Villa at the other end of the village are well worth a visit.

I am a career nurse, working all over Oxfordshire, managing care for dying patients in the community. Prior to our move to Oxfordshire, we spent 26 years living overseas, and our itchy feet continue to take us travelling whenever time allows. We have set up The Doghouse to provide the type of accommodation experience with which we ourselves feel most comfortable - our guests are entirely self-sufficient, and enjoy complete privacy. The Doghouse is fully equipped, offering stylish, luxurious accommodation and the peace and quiet that this location offers, overlooking open countryside. It's an ideal venue for a romantic getaway, or chill-out time away from city life. It's also an ideal venue for quiet study or concentrating on a work project. Full access information is provided on booking, and printed information about The Doghouse, and the local area, is awaiting our guests' arrival. We live on-site, but leave our guests to enjoy themselves in complete privacy, with no unwelcome intrusions. I am always happy to provide local recommendations, or answer specific questions by email ahead of reservations.

We live in the main house at the property, and are happy to help with advice or suggestions ahead of your stay

ESSENTIAL simple-to-follow directions and arrival information are provided for access on confirmation of booking, and there is an information booklet for the property and the local area supplied in The Doghouse. PLEASE NOTE - WE ARE VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND WITHOUT THE DIRECTIONS- there are no street lights, mobile reception is very poor, and FULL RELIANCE ON SAT NAV WILL TAKE YOU 1/2 MILE OFF COURSE!!
As recommended by Air Bnb for security reasons, the codes for access to the key safe, and de-activation of the alarm on entry to the property are supplied via email a couple of days prior to your arrival.
We will provide you with keys to come and go as you please, and are available via text or phone in case of problems. Otherwise, we will leave you to enjoy the privacy, and peace and quiet that The Doghouse offers.

We have a very affectionate labrador, called Lottie, who smiles at you when she greets you. Also, a grey cat called Martha, who is rather timid, but very affectionate. Please be careful not to shut her in The Doghouse if she visits you, and PLEASE don't encourage her to follow you out to the road!
