As we've been here before, we knew what to expect.. Everything was fine and welcoming. The owner is really friendly. She is not intrusive but is very helpful if needed. On a clear night you can see the Milky Way!

We had a lovely relaxing week in a rural area with walks and lovely villages and historic towns to explore.. The collage was great, clean and comfortable and the owners pleasant and helpful and also unobtrusive, we really enjoyed our week there. Lots of lovely pubs too, we had some nice meals and enjoyed the ambiance.

After a hectic day working in London, myself and my colleagues were greeted by Mr and Mrs Bates with a warm welcome.. Orchard cottage was just what we needed, ample parking, a good shower and all the cooking appliances nessasary to survive away from the wives. Most evenings the first port of call was enjoying a cold beer admiring the quiet beautiful countryside. We would like to thank Mr and Mrs Bates for their kindness and Flexibility. We will definitely be staying here again in the future. Gareth and the team

The cottage has a conservatory with views down the valley which is a great place to have breakfast, lunch and do some bird watching.. There were red kites, woodpeckers and pheasants during our stay. Evenings in the living room in front of a real fire is also very cosy. The cottage has everything you need for a country holiday: maps for walks, binoculars for bird watching, etc.

Mr. and Mrs.. Bates gave us a very warm welcome to their cosy, warm and comfortable cottage; on a hill, with beautiful views and wildlife all around, there is no better place to enjoy a peaceful break in the Bucks countryside.

The four of us had a great week at orchard cottage.. The owners are very nice and not intrusive at all, we immediately felt welcomed. We appreciate a lot the welcome pack: tea, coffee, sugar, milk, biscuits and delicious homemade marmelades!!! :-)) We loved having breakfast and lunch in the conservatory and enjoying the peaceful view. We had plenty to do: visiting Oxford, National trust properties and we spent a whole day at Blenheim Palace !! We highly recommend this cottage and we will come back!!

Orchard Cottage is a lovely place to stay. Very spacious for our family of 5 (2 adults, 2 children and a baby). The garden is huge and very much enjoyed by our two girls aged 8 and 11. Lovely views and a nice quiet place. We would happily stay again any time. Thank you Mr and Mrs Bates for making us welcome and the addition of the home grown plums.
Mrs Garric Inchauspe, October 2019
September 2019
Very nice cottage, lovely garden and surrounding area.. Mr and Mrs Bates are very friendly and welcoming. The cottage is very comfortable and suited us as a family of 5 for the week. We managed well enough but a dishwasher squeezed in somewhere would be a great addition when feeding 5 of us, but we took it in turns to wash and dry. I can definitely recommend a stay at Orchard Cottage.

Nice cottage two bathrooms and comfy rooms.. The views were wonderful. Thame was really the nearest place to shop properly . A couple of little shops nearby if you ran out of something .

Mr Hinchcliffe

We had an extremely comfortable stay in this cosy cottage.. The cottage is quietly situated with a lovely garden (foxes, deer, squirrels and a multitude of different birds seen) and the far-reaching views are beautiful. Everything that we needed was provided, including extras such as tea, coffee, milk and biscuits as well as toiletries and cleaning/washing up materials and even washing machine liquid. Thank you Richard and Vanessa for your friendly welcome and a really snug home-from-home. Forgot to say, the Aga was great for keeping the kitchen toasty warm day and night and also for cooking most of our meals - we only used the electric cooker on one occasion. We highly recommend Orchard Cottage and hope to return in the future.

Great location , situated in lovely countryside , with great views from the conservatory where we enjoyed watching the red kites circle.. Yet it is within easy reach of Oxford and NT properties, with plenty to see and do. We would like to return.
Mrs Charlesworth
October 2018
Lovely cottage so convenient for everything we wanted to see very well equipped and the owners were lovely although we didn't need to bother them during our week here.. loved Waddenham and Oxford was a dream city lots of information in the cottage so we went well equipped for our days out. the conservatory was lovely looking out over the valley with the suckler herd next to the garden . lovely stay and if we visit the area we will return.. thanks Mary and Anne
Mrs Wakeman

This cottage is in a great location for travelling around, near to a train station to London or if you want quiet to relax a fabulous quiet garden with views for miles.. Definitely a cottage for everyone. The only thing missing is no WiFi which when you are staying with children it could be useful.
Mrs Carter
May 2018
Comfortable, well equipped cottage attached to owner's house in a tinny hamlet.. Beautiful views overlooking the fields and valley, with cows grazing and red kites soaring above. The owners made us feel very welcome and gave advice when required. Many National Trust houses and parkland to visit, and walks nearby. .

A lovely little cottage for our short break.. Cosy rooms, comfy beds and lovely surroundings. Our daughters enjoyed exploring the gardens and watching the birds. A short walk to an excellent pub. Thank you Richard and Vanessa.

It would be helpful to have a wardrobe in the double bedroom.. It is not always convenient to use a wardrobe in another bedroom.

Mrs Wale

All very good, only comment would be that there was no mirror close to an electric socket for using a hairdryer, so had to do a bit of furniture and mirror moving..

Location & amenities were perfect as a base for my daughter & I to prepare for her wedding at nearby Waddesdon - the owners were very welcoming & extremely helpful.. The cottage contained everything we needed & more. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for somewhere to relax - to wake up surrounded by the stunning countryside views is guaranteed to give you the best possible start to your day!

The cottage is set in beautiful countryside with lovely views. There was a heater in the conservatory, so we could have breakfasts out there even in the coldish weather. The Aga was cosy as was the log fire. The cottage was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable and the atmosphere was very relaxing. There were very good pubs nearby, serving excellent food.

Mr Galbraith

Orchard Cottage is excellent throughout, very well equipped, and spotlessly clean. The views out over the rolling hills are fabulous, and there is an abundance of wildlife to watch from the cottage. We stayed just one week at Orchard Cottage, but could easily have filled a second week, and would have loved to have stayed longer. We'd definitely hope to stay there again.

Orchard Cottage was the perfect base from which to explore Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. It was the perfect home from home, spotlessly clean, beautifully presented, and very well equipped with every home comfort we could imagine. It even had an Aga in the kitchen, and an open fire in the living room. The friendly owners, Mr & Mrs Bates, live nextdoor and were always nearby if we ever needed them. There was a family bathroom upstairs, and a shower room and toilet downstairs, giving everyone plenty of space. The views from the conservatory adjoining the kitchen were fabulous, looking out over the little orchard, open fields, and rolling hills beyond, and made a perfect place to enjoy breakfast, or just relax in the afternoon whatever the weather. The views from the bedrooms were equally tranquil, and there is something quite special about drawing the curtains in the morning and seeing a cow gazing back at you ! The countryside around Orchard Cottage is teeming with wildlife, and in particular we enjoyed watching the red kites gliding overhead, along with the pheasants and swallows at the orchard. There were plenty of shopping facilities a short car journey away at Thame, and local shops in nearby Cuddington and Brill. We chose to eat out most evenings and found excellent cuisine at The Mole & Chicken Inn at nearby Easington, and the Crown at Cuddington. The Akeman Inn at Kingswood on the A41 was also excellent. We found that there was enough to do and see in the immediate area to more than fill the week we spent at Orchard Cottage. We chose to visit the nearby magnificent Waddesdon Manor, along with the beautiful Blenheim Palace, Claydon House, and the fabulous Stowe gardens. We also ventured as far as Windsor in just over an hour, and also into London in just under 2 hours. We could easily (and willingly !) have stayed an extra week to visit Oxford, Stratford, the Aylesbury steam railway, and explore some of the picturesque local villages, and much more. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Orchard Cottage, and along with the glowing references from all the other former guests in the Visitors' Book at the cottage, we heartily recommend it.

The cottage was perfect. We sat in the conservatory every night and ate our meal while watching the sun go down - the view was wonderful. The cottage was very well situated for our two trips to Bletchley Park and Oxford but there were a lot more places to visit equally close by. The cottage was warm, the beds very comfortable and there was lots of hot water. The kitchen was very well equipped and the aga was lovely.
Mr Holdstock

The cottage was extremely cosy and warm and the conservatory was a great hit. We spent many an afternoon sitting watching the wildlife; with the kites being particularly entertaining. The views out of every window were spectacular, and everywhere was lovely and clean. The owners were very helpful, but not intrusive. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Orchard Cottage.

This is a cosy, very comfortable cottage set in outstanding scenery. The sitting room was charming and warm with a lovely open fire. We really enjoyed having all our meals in the conservatory - sunny in the mornings, atmospheric with candles in the evenings. The Aga was wonderful to cook on, and the kitchen was imaginatively equipped with even an Aga cookbook to help us. The bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable, and there was lots of storage space. Everything we could possibly need was provided. Walks from the cottage were superb.

This was the perfect cottage for our Christmas week. The Aga makes the house warm and cosy all the time and was a pleasure to cook on. The conservatory has wonderful views all around and was a delightful place to eat our meals - sunny in the mornings, atmospheric with candles in the evenings. Bedrooms and beds were light, spacious and comfortable, and there was lots of storage space. The open fire was of course wonderful. The cottage is imaginatively equipped with everything we could possibly need, including a cookbook to guide us with the Aga, clothes pegs, cleaning materials, wood for the fire, and equipment to keep the place clean.

Easy access to a number of reserves and also Oxford. Perfect break for the family. Would definitely stay again.
