About Oxfordshire

All our Oxfordshire Collections:

Oxfordshire conjures up images of ethereal "dreaming spires", scholarly pursuits and thatched roofs, but there is much more to the county than one of the world's oldest and most famous universities. The landscape is varied, with the charming villages of the Cotswolds to the north and the rolling vistas of the Chilterns to the south. So plenty of the best places to stay in Oxfordshire aren't in fact near the famous county town at all.

Oxfordshire's scenery is well seen on foot or two wheels - if you're up for a more active Oxfordshire odyssey try the Green Belt Way, a fifty mile circular path around the city of Oxford itself, or the Oxfordshire Way, which stretches from Henley to Bourton on the Water. Even Oxford itself is very cyclist friendly - think of all those cyclists in gowns you see on "Inspector Morse".

If you're here to lap up the history and culture, you'll of course find plenty of that in Oxford, with its graceful architecture. Well-heeled Henley is also worth a look, an elegant, riverside town known for its regatta.

What Not To Miss

  • A trip to Oxford wouldn't be complete without visiting the Bodleian Library, Oxford University's main library. Established in 1602 and home to over 12 million items, this is Britain's second-largest library and definitely one of the most beautiful. With stunning interiors and breathtaking architecture, this is a tremendously atmospheric spot.
  • Take the whole family on a day out to the Cotswold Wildlife Park, a 160-acre area of parkland boasting more than 260 animal species. Filled with giraffes, zebras, lemurs, lions and more, you can watch the penguins being fed and pet the goats in the farmyard. What's more, there's an adventure playground to help the kids let off some steam.
  • Be sure to visit Broughton Castle and enjoy a picnic afterwards in the lovely gardens. This moated and fortified manor house, whose core was built as early as 1306, boasts wonderfully historic interiors as well as a tearoom in which to relax after a tour.
  • Wander around Oxford's Covered Market, an indoor bazaar dating back to the 1770's and home to a number of artisan grocers, boutique shops and bustling cafés.

The best places to stay in Oxfordshire provide a good base from which to explore, and don't forget to make sure that Blenheim Palace in Woodstock is on your radar with its beautiful gardens by Capability Brown or Wallingford Castle dating back to the medieval period.

    Oxford

    • The Randolph is an Oxford institution. The building, in the centre of town, is Gothic revival, but with a fashionable vibe, and the baronial restaurant is a 'place to go' for locals as well as visitors. It has a spa, antiques, family suites, free wifi and a great wine list. Plus, it's the best (and only) place to stay in Oxford if you're looking for five stars.
    • Clad gracefully in wisteria, The Old Parsonage looks like a country house that has been deposited bang in the centre of Oxford. It offers elegant rooms and great food.
    • Malmaison Oxford has become well-known for the previous inhabitants of the building - prisoners. Yes, this now quirky and contemporary hotel was once a castle and a prison; it still has the heavy doors, with their telltale dents, and barred windows to prove it.
    • If you're happy with spires and traditional sandstone outside contasting with something a bit more contemporary inside, book a room at the Old Bank Hotel.

    The Cotswolds

    Oxfordshire is a great base for exploring the Cotswolds - here's our pick of the best spots:

    • Located in the picturesque Burford, The Lamb Inn is a charming 14th century inn with a 2 AA Rosette restaurant and Michelin recommended bar. The seventeen rooms are all individually decorated with traditional colours, often complemented by antique furniture.
    • Burford House occupies a 17th century building in the heart of Burford with comfortable, elegant interiors and a good restaurant specialising in locally sourced produce.
    • Or you could check out the Old Swan and Minster Mill, an excellent gastropub with simple but luxurious accommodation.

    For foodies

    • The Manoir aux Quat' Saisons is Raymond Blanc's famous and fabulous establishment where the rooms are as elegant and pleasing as the two Michelin-starred food. Give yourself the ultimate treat and book a cookery course on site.
    • The Feathers is within spitting distance of Blenheim Palace. Come here for the delicious award-winning food served in the restaurant where the emphasis is on modern English cuisine from locally sourced produce.

    Country Escapes

    • The Bell is an intimate 9 room property in the village of Hampton Poyle. Offering tasteful accommodation with plenty of egyptian cotton and monsoon showers, it's also wonderfully located to enjoy some of the best walks and bike rides in the region.
    • The Trout At Tadpole Bridge boasts an intimate atmosphere in a secluded setting, backing onto the River Thames. This classic country inn features 6 smartly decorated rooms and an AA rosette winning restaurant - what more could you ask for?
    • Set in an historic country house with an ivy-clad exterior façade, The Manor, Oxfordshire is a dreamy spot. Come here for elegant rooms with traditional interiors and roaring log fires in common areas. With lovely gardens and a fine dining restaurant, it's the ideal country retreat.

      For great value

      • Miller of Mansfield in Goring on Thames is a traditional, ivy-covered inn in a charming village setting. The restaurant and bar have won awards, the 15 rooms and suites suites have been individually designed and it overlooks the river. What's more, rooms start from just £80 per night.

      For something else!

      • The Crazy Bear Hotel is a total one-off. Eclectic and eccentric, this converted coaching inn just outside Oxford is ideal for a surprise weekend away.

      For An Apartment Or Cottage

      • If you think a self-catering option would best suit your needs then check out the wide variety available online with our partner, booking.com.

        Travel Information

        • With a temperate maritime climate year round, there's never exactly a bad time to visit Oxfordshire. The weather's at its nicest however during the summer, with the average temperature reaching 16°C in July and August.
        • That said, this is peak season and so expect Oxford itself to be mobbed with tourists and prices to be higher. So, it may be a good option to visit later on in the Autumn; when the surrounding countryside turns a series of beautiful colours and there's a quieter atmosphere.
        • International visitors should either fly into London Heathrow or Birmingham Airport. From Heathrow you can take the train, which serves a number of destinations in Oxfordshire, whilst Birmingham Airport also has its own train station.
        • For car hire prices, we recommend you visit our online partner Rentalcars.
