About the location

Situated on the edge of Otmoor nature reserve and 6 miles from Oxford centre, regular coach and train to Central London, Heathrow and Gatwick from nearby park and ride car park.
Many fabulous places to visit in the area including Waddesdon Manor, Stowe Park and Gardens, Claydon Manor National Trust properties. Blenheim Palace, with its beautiful house and parkland, is approximately 12 miles away at the lovely old village of Woodstock.
From the house you can easily walk to Otmoor RSPB nature reserve to see the many different bird species from the public hide.
The Oxford canal is close by and long boats and canoes can be hired or we have a family canoe (you'll need a roof rack). There are two golf courses very close to the village. The Nut Tree, Michelin starred pub and restaurant is a short drive away or a pleasant walk across Otmoor. The area is very popular for cycling. The Cotswolds with many beautiful villages and walks are within easy reach.
Oxford itself is a wonderful historic city with the University Colleges and museums. There are theatres, cinemas and excellent restaurants and cafes. The river Thames runs through the city and punts can be hired from several locations. There are a wide variety of shops and a covered market with interesting stalls and shops.
Bicester Village designer shopping outlet is a few miles away and is very popular with shoppers coming from all over the world.
There are no shops in the village itself, nearest supermarket is Waitrose in Headington (3miles).
