Bed and light breakfast in the centre of a quiet Cotswold town only a short walk from the railway station (Oxford 15 mins) and local facilities. Two double, adjoining, well-appointed first-floor rooms with private landing area. Parking, if needed, in our drive.

The space

We had Lower Watts House designed and built twenty years ago and it has lived up to its expectations – the clue is in the name - using a fraction of the energy of a comparable building. The layout of the large house naturally lends itself to separately accommodating four guests in two double first-floor rooms with a private landing seating area. Please be aware that there are no cooking facilities (guests usually walk up to eat at one of two local inns). Secure bicycle stabling is available.

Guest access

Access to the Annex is through the house front door and up the stairs. We offer two double first-floor bedrooms - the Green & Blue room and lovely private curtained landing area to relax in. Breakfast is served in our dining room downstairs. There is a shared, large bathroom which is for your exclusive use. You are also welcome to enjoy and use the front garden. The house kitchen and back garden are for our own, private use.

Interaction with guests

I can provide lots of local information - places to visit, restaurants, theatre, train times and can arrange taxis if needed. I can also give advice on local walks and cycle rides (happy to loan maps and guide books). I am present and on-hand throughout the guest's stay, as my wife and I live in the main part of the house.

Stephen's property was great, the breakfast in the morning was a great touch. It really is excellent value for money and a beautiful property in a lovely Cotswold's town. Will definitely be returning.

Stephen's home is amazing. Everything was perfect. He prepared a very huge and good breakfast. He gave us a lot of advice and the house is in the middle of a very small and cosy village.

I had high expectations of Lower Watt House going by previous reviews and it still exceeded them! Stephen is a fantastic host - so helpful and friendly, in both our communications beforehand and during our stay. Comfortable king size beds and the private seating area means you're not restricted to sitting in your bedroom - that's a nice touch. This was our first time using Airbnb so Stephen has set the bar very high indeed for other Airbnb hosts to follow.

Staying at the Lower Watts House was incredible, and a highlight of my trip to England. Whether looking to explore the Cotswolds or Oxford, Stephen's home serves as the BEST "home away from home" you could find. The house is down the road from the main part of town and Charlbury is an incredible place to stay! Stephen, a worldly and well travelled fella, welcomes you from your journey to give you guidance and tips only a local could know. He serves an incredible breakfast and ensures you have everything you need during your stay. He is very communicative and flexible! It's truly like staying with a friend! You MUST book the Lower Watts House for your travels--you won't have a better stay anywhere else!

I enjoy walking, both in the glorious Cotswold's and further afield and feel privileged to have raised our children in such a nice town. I am closely involved in local community life, and a walk up to the shops can take twenty minutes, as I chat to folks on the way. I love the changing seasons and look forward to aspects of each of them. A perfect winter's evening for me would be sitting by the fire playing my vinyl collection - which seems to have stood the test of time.
