The holiday cottage is located along a quiet side road which runs parallel to the Oxford Canal and the canal itself is just a stone's throw from the front door. The stone built cottage was originally built around 1750 and is one of a terrace of cottages along the canal in Thrupp. The cottage was completely re-furbished and modernised to a high standard by the current owners.
