I can't add much to the other reviews here, just to repeat how friendly and welcoming Ian and Georgina are and how cosy and well-appointed the Barn is. I would echo that the wifi is very weak (get a repeater Ian!) and that a parking space would have been nice but neither things are dealbreakers and we definitely intend to stay there again! On the plus side, considering we booked late and for the August bank holiday, it was very reasonably priced compared to the alternatives. All in all, I have no hesitation in recommending The Barn.
The Barn is a very cosy place to stay. Very clean and well looked after with very friendly and obliging owners. Close to Oxford in a pleasant little town with amenities. Only minor downsides were no parking (however there is a free car park about a 3 min walk away) and also having to share the garden with the owners (their house is at the other end of the garden). However, these are minor points and we were very happy with our stay and would recommend to others.

I slept better here than I have in months. Had I known they had washer/dryer I would have packed less. Every appliance works perfectly. Water temps were great. The garden is the stuff of fairy tales in its potter-esque delight. Besides the perfection of the lodging and hosts, the village of Wheatley was superb. Great food, kind folks. I've raving about this place on Yelp, fb & twitter as well.
