Ivy Cottage - Around Oxfordshire

Ivy Holiday Cottage is close to Oxford within the Oxfordshire Thames Valley.

Located in the heart of the pretty village of Longworth within 1mile from the River Thames, Ivy Cottage offers an ideal setting for a family self catering holiday or a short-term stay (Oxford University, Milton Industrial Park, Harwell International Business Centre and Culham Science Centre as all are within easy travelling distance).

Oxford – 15 mins

The University city of Oxford, with its famous colleges, splendid architecture, pleasant parks, riverside walks and shopping is only 15 minutes drive from the Cottage.

The Cotswolds – 25 mins

The gentle hillsides, river valleys, water meadows and sleepy ancient limestone villages and historic market towns that make the Cotswolds so typically English are within a 25 minutes drive of Ivy Cottage.

London - 1h

London is only one hour away either by car (M40 or M4) or 40 minutes by train from Didcot Parkway (which is 20 mins by car), so Ivy Cottage offers ideal accommodation for those looking to visit the London 2012 Olympics but wanting to stay somewhere away from the busy capital in a more tranquil setting.

Within 1h

If you enjoy the countryside, the Ridgeway and the famous landmark White Horse Hill are a pleasant short drive away. You can also visit the Chilterns, Legoland, Windsor Castle or Blenheim Palace  within an hours drive.

Slightly further afield

Ivy Cottage is centrally located for many famous historic towns such as Warwick (and Warwick Castle), Cheltenham or Stratford on Avon, or the ancient sites of Stonehenge and Avebury. The cities of Bristol and Bath are within 1.5hrs drive, as are some of the picturesque beaches along the Dorset coast.
