Driving through the village of Kirtlington you will find Stoke House Annexe positioned just off the village green. You are greeted by the beautiful landscaped garden as you enter the driveway to the property. Guests can use the driveway way to park during their stay (one car)
Guests have use of the whole of the annexe. Upon entering you will find the open plan kitchen, dining and living room on the ground floor. The warm sunshine filters through in the afternoon and it is the perfect spot to chill out and read a book, use the time to turn off and have some ‘you’ time.
Leading up the stairs you will find the bedroom with a king size bed, a small sofa, TV and an ensuite bathroom (bath tub). There is ample hanging and storage space for guests use.
Outside guests have a table and chairs so they can sit out and enjoy the garden, it is the perfect spot to have a glass of bubbles and take in the peaceful surroundings. It is great in the summer season when we have warmer nights as guests have the option to dine outside when the days are longer. Breakfast is provided for 1 or 2 night bookings for guests to help themselves. Longer bookings will have the necessitates to get them started. There is a village shop close by where you can pick up essentials and there is also a supermarket 10 minutes drive from the house for a larger shop/items.
By staying at Stoke Annexe you are the gateway to some of the most beautiful areas of the UK. You are close to the historic University City of Oxford, the delightful countryside of the Cotswolds, the renowned village of Woodstock home to Blenheim Palace and a stones throw from some famous villages (Burford, Bourton on the Water, Broadway – and many more). Kirtlington is easily accessible from many directions and it is well signposted from the M40 and A34. Oxford (20 min) , Woodstock (10 min) and Bicester Village (15 min).
Such a wonderful find! I stayed here whilst attending a two day course at the Bicester Hotel and Spa which didn’t have any rooms/was very expensive. As it turned out, I felt so lucky to have a lovely home to return to and a peaceful garden to sit in! Barbara is a wonderfully friendly host and the annex has everything you need. Very clean, well equipped, special touches, amazingly comfy bed, plenty of hot water, heating, wifi etc. I would highly recommend the annex for your stay in the Cotswolds!

Lovely place to stay. Clean, nice decor and everything you need. Nice quiet location and outlook onto beautiful garden with outside table ana chairs if you need them. We used the annexe as a place to stay when visiting Oxford which worked well using the park & ride at Oxford Parkway. Nice to get away from the hustle and bustle. Barbara was lovely, was available if we needed her, and answered any queries we had. Wouldn’t hesitate to return in the future.
