About Benjamin Fry
I first came to Oxford as an undergraduate and now own my own local business here. I moved to this property in the wonderful grounds of Blenheim Palace Park in 2016 and have so enjoyed the life here. I rent out the Lince Lodge sometimes for holiday lettings, particularly in the summer when I travel. There are so many wonderful things to do here in Woodstock and the surrounding area, I hope you will come and be our guests. Be assured of a warm welcome and check-in where we show you how everything at the Lince works, and tips on how best to enjoy your stay. You will be given a comprehensive book of instructions but also our phone numbers in case of any problems or questions. .
Why Benjamin Fry chose Woodstock
The Lince is just utterly magic. It looks like a miniature castle hidden in woodland. Prepare to be completely enchanted - we are - and spoiled rotten. We hope we have thought of everything to ensure that you have a truly decadent stay, with every comfort considered. And if we haven't thought about something, let us know and we'll try to provide it!

Cozy home in beautiful country setting
My family and I spent 4 nights (29 Dec 2018 - 2 Jan 2019) at Benjamin's lovely home in Woodstock, Oxfordshire. The house is very cozy and peaceful. Lots of wildlife and opportunities for walks on the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace. I would strongly recommend this location for anyone wanting to get away for some peace and quiet.
Ben and Daphne were both very responsive and easy to work with.
Enjoying nature in style
We have spent 3 nights in the most beautiful setting ever, both: the surrounding Blenheim estate woods and fields and the house are simply stunning. If you love historic buildings, nature and walks and usually have to plan your walking routes, this time you will find them just outside your doorstep. We have enjoyed the spacious and stylish, yet cosy house, saw stags,pheasants, deer and other animals from our windows, spent evenings in front of an open fire and used swings and chairs outside when felt like staying in. Thank you Benjamin and Daphne for making our stay so lovely! xxx
fantastic location, beautiful house, almost nothing negative
In the heart of the splendid Blenheim Estate, a lovely small lodge with private access. Beautiful interior design. The only two (very little) problems :
- it was not easy to find out how to start the warming
- the pans for cooking are a bit old.
Thank you for the helpful feedback. I'm glad you had a great stay.
Our family of six had a lovely long weekend here. The Cotswolds villages were very busy, so we opted to spend our time in this delightful, quiet hideaway. Benjamin and Daphne were attentive to details, including fresh flowers. The home is very clean and comfortable and the grounds are beautiful and quiet. A highlight of our time in England. The WiFi and dishwasher must be new because the instructions in the handbook need updating, but those were very minor issues. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a charming, quiet and comfortable place to stay.
The perfect stay in a unique location.
This is a truly stunning property in an amazing location. We had the perfect (quiet) new year here with our three children and a family friend. The grounds were amazing for walks and runs and the play equipment in the garden was an unexpected bonus for the children. We have left with very special memories. 😀
Situated near the picturesque village of Woodstock, a chocolate-box pretty town with a good number of pubs, restaurants, gift shops, tea shops and beauty day spas to fill your days. Further afield there is the historic city of Oxford with its many museums and colleges - try punting on the river for the 'True Blue' experience. For a bit of retail therapy travel to the nearby Bicester Village Outlet Mall.
