There’s a well-equipped handcrafted kitchen, a generous bathroom, and two irresistibly cosy bedroom nooks. One is equipped with a downy kingsize bed, while the kids will adore the mezzanine nook, accessed via steep wooden stairs and equipped with two floor mattresses.

Cross the swinging rope bridge and head off into the trees, or challenge a loved one to a game of tennis on the shared court. After a hearty barbecued lunch, cool off with an energising dip in the indoor pool.
While it’s tempting to stay put in this special slice of fairytale heaven, the city delights of Oxford are a mere 15 minute bike-ride away.
