Cosy Cottage in Idyllic Village

Holiday home in Kidlington with kitchen and balcony or patio
Kissing Cottage is located in the picturesque Oxfordshire village of Kirtlington, offering easy access to Oxford, Bicester and the Cotswolds. The original house is around 300 years old and has been carefully refurbished to make it a comfortable and stylish holiday cottage in Oxfordshire. With stone walls, an inglenook fireplace, wood beams and floors, this is a perfect getaway cottage to enjoy a short break, a long holiday to discover the area or as a relocation property for a longer stay.

Kirtlington is a pretty village with two local bistro-pubs within walking distance, The Oxford Arms and The Dashwood. There is also a convenient village shop and post office. With Oxford and The Cotswolds on the doorstep, there is lots to do and see in the area.

Parking just outside the property. There are some local buses to Oxford but we'd recommend this as a cottage for those who have a car or hire car.

There is an hourly bus service that runs between Bicester and Oxford with a pick up point along the Bletchingdon Road. Bus number 250 (no evening or Sunday service). Takes roughly 30 minutes to Oxford. Or 30 minutes towards Bicester.
