About Lock Cottage

A charming and cosy Thames-side cottage with a pretty garden close to the Thames Path.

Always dreamed of staying in one of those pretty river-side cottages with a perfectly pruned garden? Lock Cottage is just that, the very epitome of a Thames-side cottage with ivy-clad walls, pruned shrubs and a rustic interior full of charm. Step inside to knobbly stone walls, wonky exposed beams and a roaring open fire built into a brick wall.

 

It has a small unfenced garden that overlooks the weir and open fields across from the river. Cross the bridge and hop onto the Thames Path for walks along the river. 

 

You’ll be on the fringes of The Cotswolds with the quaint old village of Burford just a 15 minutes’ drive north from here. South to the cottage is the Iron Age hill-fort, Badbury Hill, White Horse Hill and the Berkshire Downs.

Notes for guests

Access: If you would like a copy of the access statement for this cottage please call the team on 0344 800 2070.

Children: Due to the cottages small unfenced garden which overlooks the river and weir we feel these hazards make this cottage unsuitable for children under 12.

Heating: night storage heating included. 

Garden: the cottage has a small unfenced garden which overlooks the river and weir.

Parking: for two cars approximately 20 metres from the cottage.

Please note: across the weir pool from Lock cottage is a field open to the public and used for walking, picnics, family ball games etc. The whole area can be very busy during good weather, school and bank holidays. The footpath past the cottage leading to the lock and the Thames path can also be very busy. Local fire brigades also use the weir field and pool for water rescue exercises on week days from time to time. This is in agreement with the National Trust.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 Acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities (details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage). Bedding, linen and towels are supplied (with a few exceptions, which is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
