Stay in a Pub in Oxfordshire

20 March 2017

With easy access from Birmingham and London via the M40, or a convenient train journey from Paddington to Oxford, or to the tiny Cotswold stations of Charlbury and Kingham, Oxfordshire is perfect for a country escape or weekend break away. Its scenery is perhaps surprisingly varied, its history long and eventful and its heritage rich and absorbing. Located at the heart of England, Oxfordshire packs quite a punch.In the south-west, the county reaches the glorious Vale of the White Horse, while to the south-east lie the Chilterns, renowned for their steep scarps and beautiful beechwoods.  Away to the west and north-west, Oxfordshire meets the Cotswolds – a land of rolling hills and picture-postcard cottages built of honey-coloured stone. Almost at the centre of the county is Otmoor, a sinister swathe of wetland known as ‘the loneliest place in the county’ – remote and bewitching, this is a favourite haunt of walkers and wildlife enthusiasts.

So whatever your passion, seek out the quirky, independent shops in charming small towns, stroll through picture-postcard villages, or explore the riverside and hilltop paths that criss-cross the fascinating Oxfordshire landscape. Then rest and refuel at one of these stylish pubs with rooms from our fabulous collection on
