Best family rental: it's about time for a mini escape to the great outdoors

Updated: Jul 9, 2020

Bring your social bubble to The Copse, Oxfordshire

We have just heard that The Copse has been selected by the team at Coco as one of the best country escapes. Finally we can leave home, so do choose to come here! Maybe we can't party or celebrate in anything like a normal way. But we have been working hard in lock down. Now we are ready for you to grab a holiday and explore this glorious part of the countryside, just an hour from London. Plus there is so much to do without leaving the house and no such thing as boredom. Best of all there is so much space.

Not far from London, breeze through the journey.

Arrive to 7000 sq ft of space surrounded by 22 acres. Plenty of fresh air and green fields are guaranteed any time of year.

Once inside relax together for a long overdue catch up. Cook in the fab kitchen, eat, sleep, read, walk, check out the wild life, barbecue indoors or out. Walk to the pub. Take the dog!

What can I do with the children ?

Do not worry. This is the one place where everything you need is to hand. Including terrific nanny service and babysitters. Just ask us.

Young and old will love the hot tub - and yes, it is hot. The cinema room is the best. It has every channel and film. You wont resist the miles of tracks, the wildflower fields and woods. Build a camp, walk off the late lunch, hang out on the climbing play space, examine masses of wild life, pat the horses in the fields and bring your bike to explore the off road cycle tracks. Or just put on your welly boots and get out amongst nature.

I just want to stay at home and chill out..

It's OK. We understand.

Across the courtyard to the barn is the indoor bar, more comfy seating, dance floor and sound ceiling. Great for zumba or yoga and amazingly sound proof.

Outside is a place for garden games of all kinds.

The Barbecue for cosying up... Wait until you see inside!
cosy seating for 15...if you catch a fish, this is the place to cook it

When it is finally time for bed, each one of the nine bedrooms has a king or superking bed. Three of these bedrooms also has a single bed. Woopeee, even more room to spread out. Plus there are 6 bathrooms.

this lovely bedroom has its own bathroom and a balcony running along its length
here's yet another bedroom with a balcony and bathroom and great views
this one has its own garden space and of course a bathroom

These photos show our latest additions to life here. The Pavilion is now our games room - just for the next six months we have added a snooker table and table tennis - and a bar and barbecue outside. Best of all the little stream runs through the corner of the building. How nuts is that.

just love the wildlife on this natural pond

The good news is we can again book to eat at a pub. If you want in house caterers we can help with recommendations. So this can be a real holiday. We have a splendid local, The Packhorse Pub, Chazey Heath and it serves food all day and has a playground and huge garden.

The New Inn Kidmore End is also walking distance. They have extra rooms for anyone who wants to be nearby - but not too close!

Don't forget to get in touch. You deserve a break and while we are on the subject of recommendations - The Muddy Stiletto Guide to Oxfordshire also just last week made us a top choice for a rural holiday.
