Self-catering accommodation in Oxfordshire
After indulging in your quintessential Oxfordshire cottage, discover a county which is arguably one of the most beautiful in England. Whether you choose to don your walking boots and explore its verdant pastures, wild flower meadows and lush parkland, try your hand at country pursuits from golf to clay pigeon shooting or wander the honey-hued Cotswolds villages of Burford, Woodstock, Chipping Norton and Challow, your Cotswold experience starts here.
When it comes to historical days out in Oxfordshire, the possibilities are endless. Blenheim Palace, a World Heritage Site and the birthplace of Winston Churchill, should be at the top of your itinerary with its Baroque architecture and 2000 acres of garden. Other options include Kelmscott Manor, Wallingford Castle, Broughton Castle and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History which boasts a wealth of exhibits from dinosaurs to dodos.
The city of Oxford is a must-see for any holiday to Oxfordshire – a romantic destination where visitors can enjoy punting along the River Thames, a colourful stroll around the Oxford Botanic Garden, taking in panoramic views from the top of one of its magnificent spires, admiring outstanding art in the Ashmolean Museum and exploring one of its famous colleges that are open to the public.
Foodie fans are in for a treat as Oxfordshire boasts a vast array of incredible restaurants, traditional pubs and tearooms where the finest, freshest ingredients are combined to make gastronomic treats for all tastes and budgets. From the Wild Rabbit in Kingham, to the White Horse in Banbury or the Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons in Great Milton, there’s something for everyone.
Anything else? Savvy shoppers will be delighted with Bicester Village where there is all manner of designer bargains to be had, families can enjoy a fun day out at the Didcot Railway Centre or Cotswold Wildlife Park, and walkers can ramble along the scenic Oxfordshire or d’Arcy Dalton Ways, plus the nearby Chilterns – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
