About Bowler Hat Letting
Hello, I'm Angie. After quitting the rat race I wanted to do something totally different. With my background in building and manufacturing, renovating a property wasn't too out of my comfort zone. I see the key facts of running a business remain the same: offer a great product, at a competitive price, look after your customers and I find you can't go too wrong. Running a holiday let is a brand new and exciting experience for me. It's important to me that your stay is as memorable and relaxing as possible. I want you to come again or help to spread the word.
Bowler Hat Letting purchased this House in 2015
Why Bowler Hat Letting chose Woodstock
I found an unloved property back in 2015 right in the heart of Woodstock and brought it back to life, through blood, sweat & tears. The muscle pain has gone now but I'm still waiting for my nails to grow back! So why stay here? Well it's a convenient location, has lots of character and I care about you having a great stay.
What makes this House unique
Location, cosy cottage and my commitment to my guests.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
What a great experience! This cosy cottage was perfect for our family of 4 visiting the area. The attention to detail here is amazing - the cottage is gorgeously restored. Angela and Allister are great hosts who helped us plan our activities and gave great suggestions.
The location is really ideal if you plan to blend a visit to the Cotwolds with some time in Oxford, Blenheim (within walking distance) and, as our hosts suggested, Warwick castle. I wish we had more time to explore the area - there was so much charm, natural beauty, and amazing history. We’ll have to find our way back soon and when we do, we won’t hesitate to book this great property again.

Beautiful cottage, in a beautiful village, near a beautiful setting for a triathlon. Angie made us feel very welcome. The cottage is done to a high standard and the location is perfect for Woodstock, with its nice pubs and restaurants........
We will be back next year xxx
Everywhere you look is a “wow”!
We have travelled extensively around the world and stayed in some very top notch accommodation but without doubt No5 is THE most exceptional. To say the owner has “an eye for detail” is an understatement. Angie contacted us before our arrival to ask what our “tipple” was. The fridge was stocked with that “tipple”. Angie had remembered my longing for a good soak in a bath. The roll top bath here is luxurious beyond words. Angie provides luxurious bathing salts and bubbles and even face masks to complete your pampering. There is a cute “grooming” area on the landing fully equipped with a hair dryer in it’s own unique case, and face cleansers and creams! It goes without saying that the cottage is spotlessly clean. The bed linen and towels smelt of a freshness I have not experienced anywhere else. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in and I know it’s a cliche to say we didn’t want to get out of it but one day we actually didn’t! There were treats everywhere we looked, from cookies to freshly laid eggs to Spanish hot chocolate, which, if you haven't ever tried Spanish hot chocolate it is something you should book No 5 for just to do so! Angie provides every kind of tea imaginable. There are even juniper berries to give your G&T an extra kick! Angie even sourced us skimmed goats’ milk! That request, was I confess, a bit tongue in cheek, but nope, Angie sourced it for us and there it was in the fridge! We “lived” in No 5 for five nights. I felt like I was in a 21st Century luxury version of a Jane Austen novel. With Blenheim Palace just across the road, I felt I was living in a part of history. We were lucky with the weather when we arrived so ate out in the very pretty and private garden yard. Damn! there is even a novelty crystal water drop dripping from the watering can! One evening turned cooler and so we burnt a compressed paper log in the prettiest wood burner I have ever seen. How can a wood burner be pretty? Because it’s Angie’s. Angie really is the most delightful host. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she deserves every accolade we give her. We love living on our beach but No 5 has become our country bolt hole and we shall return, often. Thank you for being there Angie, You put style into a different league!
Wonderful cottage in a perfect village setting
We stayed for two nights over the Easter weekend. The cottage is very well appointed, and we felt immediately at home. The owner was extremely helpful before and during the rental. We loved the small courtyard area, where we had dinner on both nights with our children. Perfect!
Aidan, the marvellous invisible guest. Thank you soooooo much for the 5 star review. As host I'd like to give you & your family a 10/10 as a perfect guest ;)
Very pleased you had a wonderful break. If you're ever back in Woodstock please get in touch. Love to all. Angie Bowler Hat Letting. xxx
Stunning cottage with quality furnishings and careful consideration for guest needs. Total relax!
Beautiful property a stones throw from Blenheim Palace and lots of lovely food places in Woodstock. We were greeted by Angie and her husband who went the extra mile to meet us and help bring in our luggage. Angie had made special efforts to welcome our daughter with an Easter surprise which she was thrilled at. Cottage is spotlessly clean with high quality throughout - le creuseut/ Denby crockery Hypnos mattresses and soft white sheets.... as well as some beauty products available upstairs and biscuits in the pantry! Felt very comfortable and relaxing. We really enjoyed making a fire in the evening and found it very easy to spend time here with all the care and attention in making it a contemporary character property. Totally charmed by it and would recommend anyone to book it.
Hi Cat, thank you soooo much for your review. That means the world to me. I love making my guests feel really really welcomed & at home.
Hope you enjoyed being 'Angiefied' with Bowler Hat Letting.
Roll over Mary Poppins ;)
Hope to see you again. xxx
Beautiful, well appointed quaint home in the heart of Woodstock!
My wife and I and our teen and tween daughter stayed in this lovely cottage over New Year's Eve and New Year's Day 2019. Angie is an incredibly thoughtful homeowner and the cottage itself was well appointed, very clean, very charming and perfect for our stay. We enjoyed the fireplace, the very hot shower and the lovely comfortable rooms and beds and thought Woodstock was equally charming and central to all we wanted to do in the Cotswolds. I would highly recommend staying here and would love to again if we are ever back to the countryside.
So pleased you enjoyed your English New year in the cottage with Blenheim Palace on the door step. If you're ever back in the UK please get in touch.
Thank you sooooo much for booking with Bowler Hat Letting. Love to you all. Angie xxx
