There is something for everyone to do, with Bicester Village shopping outlet, with its array of designer shops, Silverstone race track, home of the British Grand Prix, famous Blenheim Palace with all year round events or just explore the grounds, and the traditionally English towns and villages of the Cotswolds on the doorstep, including Chipping Norton, Woodstock,Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh. A little further afield is the university city of Oxford, with all its historic buildings, architecture and museums.

Step back in time, entering from the pretty courtyard into the beautifully presented lounge of this traditional honey coloured stone cottage, with contemporary seating and soft furnishings that  further enhance the character. Relax with the Smart TV and Netflix for a cosy night in, after supper in the dining area just off the lounge.

A cosy cottage, convenient for many attractions. We found The Elephant & Castle pub next door very handy and did not experience any noise from it. There are also two other pubs within a 5 minute walk and we enjoyed an evening meal at both. The complimentary brewery tour at Hook Norton was a welcome addition.

Thr cottagRead moree is adjacent to the elephant pub but not disturbed by noise on an evening the only issue we had was that the archway to parking area is very tight Hide
