Description

Le logement

All furnishings and products used in our annexe are of exceptional quality, with lots of little luxuries you would find, in a stylish and unique, boutique hotel. With its own private entrance, it gives our guests the perfect amount of privacy to come and go as they please. Please note that there are some low beams and a slanting ceiling in the annexe. (please refer to photos )

Accès des voyageurs

The annexe is self contained, with a small fridge, kettle and Nespresso cappuccino machine.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

On arrival I greet my guests and show them how everything works in the annexe. I like to give people the privacy they normally look for when staying with us but am always on hand or at the end of a phone to answer any queries or give any help if needed.

Le quartier

Hethe is a typically quaint English village with plenty of beautiful walks. To be woken up to the sound of birds singing and horses hooves trotting past is one of the reasons we moved here.

We are very fortunate that in our pretty little village we boast one of Oxfordshire's finest gastro pubs, serving fabulous freshly prepared gourmet food. In summer months, food can be eaten in the gardens or on the beautiful terrace. Though only a stones throw from our house, noise is rarely an issue.

Hethe is ideally located, with easy access to J9 or J10 of the M40. A 15 minute drive away from Silverstone race track, 4 miles to the infamous 'Bicester Village Outlet" retail park and an easy drive to some of England's most fantastic National Trust houses and gardens.

Transports

Bicester North and Bicester Village stations are the nearest train stations, with trains from London Marylebone in under an hour. Trains and buses also go into the centre of Oxford within 20 minutes.

There is a bus from right outside our house, which will take you into the centre of Bicester.

Autres remarques

The mini fridge is stocked with, fresh orange juice, fresh milk, natural yoghurt and bottled water.

There is a selection of teas and nespresso coffee pods, along with a breakfast hamper of cereals and granola.

We will also bring a breakfast tray to your room with fresh homemade 'Sourdough' toast, croissants, marmalade and jams.

The room really IS as lovely as it seems in the pictures! Hard to believe, but it's true! Jayne is a perfect host that made our stay as pleasant as possible. Thanks a lot! There are only two slightly negative points, that may or may not be relevant for you: First, the Wifi is really weak and therefore very slow. With your mobile you will have trouble catching it at all, bit better with a laptop, but still very spotty. You're better off heading over to the pub on the other side of the road. Second, there is no cooked breakfast. The continental breakfast that's offered is delightful though. But if you're after scrambled eggs and bacon in the morning, this may not be the right place for you. Since the breakfast is detailed in the description provided, this shouldn't be a surprise. Overall, a great place if you're happy with the limitations mentioned above.

Thank you for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I would like to clarify, for future guests, that we have recently invested in the most up-to-date BT home Hub 6 router, which gives the annexe full access to BT's Infinity Fibre optic broadband. I have just run several tests and we have a down load speed of in excess of 28mbps and an upload speed of 9.1mbps. The other 'limitation', you mentioned, was the lack of a cooked breakfast. And as you rightly pointed out, this is made VERY clear in my description and a continental breakfast of freshly baked 'homemade' Sour dough toast, freshly baked croissants, jams, marmalade, local honey and marmite are provided, along with natural yoghurt, granola, milk and orange juice. So I am a little baffled, why you felt the need to include this as a limitation in your review! I do appreciate honest feed back, as it is vital to us as hosts, being able to make every thing as perfect as possible for our guests stay. But some things are beyond our control. Kind regards Jayne

Couldn't recommend The Dozing Duck enough. Beautiful designed, modern, private & quiet. Jayne had thought of everything, the little touches from toiletries to the breakfast Jayne provided were really lovely. The shower was also a highlight. We ate close by at The Lion in Wendlebury (recommended by Jayne) as the Muddy Duck was closed. The food was delicious and the staff were very nice. We then headed back for a cosy night in which was just perfect and exactly what we were looking for. This would be an ideal place to explore the surrounding areas and to head out for some walks. It is compact but we would definitely visit again!

Dozing Duck was everything I expected and more. All the special little touches are there which make you feel very well cared for. Jayne is a perfect host. Do take the time to get out for a walk if you can as this is a beautiful area.

Jayne was a brilliant host and really went out of her way to make us feel comfortable. As an example, we let Jayne know ahead of our stay that one of us required a gluten free breakfast; Jayne had made sure to source gluten free bread and granola and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable, we both slept fantastically. The space is in a separate building from the main home at the end of a short driveway and has its own gated entrance. We found that the room could be quite dark as not much natural light comes into the bedroom. However, this was okay if we took down a large removable curtain covering the door. Hethe and the surrounding countryside are beautiful and the food at the Muddy Duck pub opposite was delicious. Having a car is a definite necessity to explore the Cotswolds and Oxfordshire at its best. Any problems or questions that we had during the stay were very quickly addressed by Jayne. We would strongly recommend The Dozing Duck to anyone looking to explore this beautiful area.

A beautiful annexe room with private access and a wonderful host. Hethe is a lovely rural village. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend the Dozing Duck to anyone looking for a quiet, cozy night away.

Lovely place but oh so tiny. Warning to claustrophobic guests : I almost had to crawl to move inside it (extremely low ceiling with nice wooden beams). The bed is great and that's good because it's only for sleeping, nothing else. Nice interior and very well equipped room even if the Wifi is far from working well (it's the one from the main house so very weak signal). Bathroom is nice and at least you can see the sky from there whereas the bedroom is like a cave. Jayne, the host, is absolutely lovely but why ask for a 10 AM check out ??? Far too early...

Réponse de Jayne :
Dear Arnaud, I'm sorry you felt claustrophobic in the annexe, you are my first guest to have said this to me. I feel it is a bit of an exaggeration to say you had to crawl around inside. The ceiling height in the walkway from the main door to bathroom is 6' 3" high and around the bed is over 7' in height. I agree that if you are very tall, you will have to navigate a couple of wooden beams, but this is clearly stated in my description and also very clear in all the photos. The bedroom is also 4m x 3.7m which is a good size. Everyone loves the bed because it is a Superking which does take up a fair amount of room. My check out time of 10am is fairly standard. I do offer a later check out if requested, as long as I don't have other guests arriving. In order to maintain my high standards of cleanliness, I need to give myself plenty of time between guests to turn the annexe around. I hope you can understand why I feel slightly let down by your comments, as my other 100+ reviews have all been fantastic and I am very passionate about The Dozing Duck and making sure all of my guests are happy. Kind regards Jayne
