Accommodation: large living area with sofa & 2 armchairs, mezzanine with king size bed {accessed via ladder}, kitchenette, shower room. Benefits include parking, good Wifi, handmade crockery, microwave/grill, fridge/freezer, organic vegetable garden, Grand Piano (extra charge)

Priestor
For over 150 years the village of Blewbury has been a destination for artists, and, as such, The Studio is flooded with light and colour. Beautiful paintings and objects, along with well-crafted fixtures, decorate the timber framed space, which we hope is inspiring and reflective. In keeping with the building's ECO credentials, many elements of the decor (coffee table, kitchen units etc) have been handmade on site, from upcycled pieces of timber, or found in charity shops and given a new lease of life.

Parking outside our house, you are invited to walk through the garden at the back of which sits the Studio, overlooking the organic vegetable garden. Outside the main door there is a small table for alfresco eating/drinking, along with a small fire pit when the evenings draw in (logs charged extra). You are welcome to wander around the veg patch, or while away the hours by the pond in our vintage deckchairs.

Inside, the Kitchenette comes with a decent sized fridge/freezer, and a microwave/grill for light meals. It's important to point out there is no plumbed sink in the Kitchenette; you are welcome to use the plastic wash tub/liquid and cloths provided, OR we are happy to collect your dishes from a container outside, and return them to you later in the day (sanitised). Breakfast (Luxury Muesli, milk, a locally baked Sourdough or Seeded Loaf, French butter, Raspberry Jam, fresh Coffee and Tea) is provided...or stroll along to the village Cafe for a Full English. For those who wish to stay in, we can easily arrange a stunning ‘Dinner for Two’ prepared by a top chef, and delivered directly to The Studio....please message for details.

The Mezzanine is a stunning feature of the accommodation, giving a unique aspect of the space. It is 2.2m from ground level, and whilst the ladder is steep it is comfortable/easy to use (10 flat treads, with brushed steel handrails on the side and at the top..see the photos). For safety reasons 'The Studio' is not suitable for young children. The bed is a comfortable, brand new, King Size futon made of sustainable hardwood, with luxury Egyptian cotton bed linen. There is storage on the mezzanine for clothes, but we would recommend leaving suitcases/bags on ground level.

As professional musicians we take pride in our Boston Steinway grand piano, which is available to use as an optional extra (variable rates available-please message me). Otherwise the piano will be locked. There are extra music stands available to borrow. There is a large CD collection to peruse, and music system, as well as vocal scores and piano music.

There is a selection of books on the local area, plus OS walking maps to borrow. The bird life is diverse in the area, with as many as 30 different species visiting our own garden since Lockdown, including Woodpeckers, Sparrowhawks, a Tawny Owl, Red Kites and a Mandarin Duck! There is also a guide to garden birds and binoculars to borrow. Before your arrival we'll email you a file detailing information on local restaurants, shops, beauty spot recommendations, local businesses, and fun excursions.

White Company towels and Egyptian Cotton bed linen are all provided, along with 'Faith in Nature' Body Wash and a hair dryer.

*COVID 19*
In line with advice from AirBnb and Government guidelines, we will deep clean and thoroughly sanitise the space before your arrival. We will also provide guests with a selection of sanitising products (wipes etc) for ongoing cleaning during the course of your stay.

Prístup pre hostí
The Studio is available in its entirety for your private use, along with an outside area. You are welcome to sit under the Hazel tree by the pond..a great place for a coffee, and wander about the vegetable garden.

Poloha

Blewbury, England, Spojené kráľovstvo

Described by poet John Betjeman as 'This Venerable Village', Blewbury is a quintessentially English experience, with thatched cottages, village greens, ancient barns & gin-clear chalk streams. There are a couple of pubs (one serving delicious Wood-Fired Pizza, the other, offering a more elegant menu). Both serve a selection of wines and locally produced ales. Blewbury is within easy access of the North Wessex Downs, with unlimited walking, cycling, horse riding possibilities. A short hop away, and with opportunities for boating, fishing and wild swimming, is the Thames. It winds gently from the 'Dreaming Spires' of Oxford to the Regatta-mad town of Henley-on-Thames, and onwards towards London. London itself is 40 mins on the train from Didcot Parkway (10 minute drive), and Oxford is a 10 minute train journey. Other areas within easy reach include The Cotswolds, and Bicester Village is a 30 minute drive. The market towns of Abingdon, Wallingford, and the birthplace of King Alfred the Great, Wantage, are all nearby.

The ancient Norman Church of St. Michaels can be seen from The Studio, and every Friday evening the bell ringers practice their peels. The village is characterised by a network of charming lanes, and shady streams, flanked by thatched 'Cob Walls' where getting lost is all part of the fun. Kenneth Grahame was inspired to write 'The Wind in the Willows' whilst living in Blewbury, so taken was he by the pretty little chalk streams that lace village. Indeed a Blue Plaque commemorates Grahame's stay here. 'Worzel Gummidge' was also penned by Barbara Euphan Todd when she lived in the village, and the great Edwardian artist William Nicholson lived and painted in Blewbury, along with many other artists. There is a very determined village policy of 'No Street Lighting', and a late walk back from the pub affords beautiful night skies, with infinite stars to behold.

The Ridgeway, considered Britain's oldest byway, is a short hike up the hill. The surrounding Downs and Gallops have been, for many years, an area famous for Racehorse training, and the sight of a group of pedigree race horses at full tilt, on a crisp winter morning, is breathtaking.

One highlight is to walk from Blewbury to Aldworth (bring sturdy shoes/boots) where the exceptionally unspoilt 'Bell Inn' (CAMRA Pub of the Year 2019) has to be seen to be believed. Family run for decades, and eschewing usual trends in pubs, the Bell is like stepping back into history. Highly recommended! N.B. unfortunately because of the pandemic, punters are currently only allowed in the pub garden.

There is a lot going on in Blewbury; festivals, dances, concerts, cricket matches. Another highlight during the summer is Tea and Cake in the church on a Sunday afternoon, and the annual theatrical production by the renowned 'Blewbury Players' in the outdoor theatre at nearby Orchard Dene House

Other amenities in the village include a BP petrol station/shop (open late), and a very popular Farm Shop and Cafe. There is also a Driving Range for keen golfers.

Hi. We've lived in South Oxfordshire for 14 years, and brought up our 2 children here. We are professional musicians, myself an Opera Singer and my wife is a Pianist. We love Art and Music and love to travel and share time with good friends. Gardening and cooking are passions, and our vegetable garden takes up a lot of time between jobs. Our own listing, we hope, is an inspiring place for people to come and enjoy, nestled on the edge of the North Wessex Downs, an Area of Outstanding Beauty
