    About this property

    Rural Self-catering Lodge.south-facing sun Deck, Garden, Views Over Open Fields

    Adults-only chalet in Wallingford
    Our rural fully-equipped self-catering lodge is built upon recycled tyre foundations and powered by the wind and sun at the rear of a rural business centre. The lodge is set in a rural location a few miles from the historic town of Wallingford. It has its own fenced garden with South-facing sun deck and the lounge/dining room, bedroom and kitchen all have views over open fields to the South. We have chickens, geese and sheep in the next door fields. The ecolodge has been designed with plenty of light to make the most of the sunshine throughout the year, and there is a small wood burner so it's all warm and toasty on those cold winter evenings. There's a separate open plan dining/lounge area with a link to a small well-equipped kitchen and a shower room off an entrance hallway. This also links to a separate large bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with washing machine, gas oven, microwave, toaster, bodum-style coffee pot & frother and a good selection of kitchenware and utensils. A wooden deck with patio furniture runs along the whole of the South-facing side of the building, looking over the garden and fields beyond. Guest access Guests have full access to the entire building plus the adjacent fenced garden. There is plenty of parking available in front of the lodge. Interaction with guests I provide my mobile number so guests can text me if they need anything. I live only 400 metres away so can respond quickly if required. Other things to note We can also provide plenty of hardwood for the portable fire-pit style barbeque if required which can be great on summer evenings! The lodge is fully equipped with towels, tea towels, cloths, shampoo/conditioner, soap, washing up liquid and laundry liquid/conditioner.
    Guest accommodations at this chalet offer coffee/tea makers and hair dryers. Accommodations offer separate living rooms. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas.

        Rural Eco Retreat

        The Ecolodge is a spacious and very well equipped house with everything you need for a short break. We spent a full week here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There are lots of places to visit nearby and on an evening it was lovely to sit out on the deck overlooking open fields and woods and see the red kites flying. The duck eggs were an unexpected bonus.

        4/5 Good

          Nice cottage with beautiful views

          We had a very nice stay in April, everything was very well taken care of, and we enjoyed the chickens, ducks & birds.

          5/5 Excellent

            Wonderful stay at Benson eco-lodge for Oxford city-trip

            We spent three nights (Saturday till Tuesday) in this eco-lodge and liked it very much. Conveniently close to Oxford and yet very nice and calm. Nice view over the fields. No noises nearby, very quiet. We liked this very much after a full day in town. The lodge itself is roomy and nicely warm. Terrace in front of the garden doors faces the evening sun. The beds are good. The shower cabin is not too spacious, but the water is OK. The eco aspect shows in recycled building materials, solar panels, own wind energy and recycled items in the interior. Everything is functional though, and well cleaned. If we would like to visit this region again, we would certainly come back here!

              A little piece of heaven planted in rural Oxfordshire

              Delightful eco-home. Lovely setting surrounded by sheep and ducks, turkeys and hens with gorgeous views from every window. Simple but very comfortable furnishing, nice big comfy bed (bigger than a double) with excellent pillows and duvet and another full size single, and very well-equipped kitchen. Milk, homemade jam and fresh organic free range eggs from the on-site hens provided (all delicious). Good shower. Lovely big thick towels. Beautiful old wood-burning stove. Delightful responsive hosts. Pretty much perfect rural retreat. Highly recommended.
