The Oxfordshire region
Oxfordshire and the Cotswold is an area of outstanding natural beauty with breathtaking scenery, bustling market towns and picturesque villages. Walking, cycling, horse-riding, fishing and golf are among the activities that can be enjoyed here. The city of Oxford is home to one of the world’s top universities, beautiful botanic gardens, many great restaurants and pubs and exciting shops. An idyllic afternoon can also be spent punting on the river. Abingdon is a historical market town with sites of interest such as the ruins of a Benedictine abbey including the beautiful perpendicular gateway and the Unicorn Theatre and Long Gallery, which are still used for plays and functions and the picturesque narrow-arched Abingdon bridge over the Thames.
A Salters Steamer Boat can be caught from Oxford and back to Days Lock and a walk taken back to Dinckley Court, or Nuneham Courtneys arboretum can be visited - full of amazing trees, plants and beautiful peacocks. Restaurants within 10 miles for food lovers include Raymond Blanc's Quatre de Saison, the famous Crazy Bear Thai restaurant, The Plough restaurant/pub, serving fabulous Tapas (can be delivered), and the Chequers pub, 400 yards away, serving great british food. Historic Oxford is 15 minutes by bus. Henley and Windsor, with its royal castle, are both within a hour's drive, with the Georgian Hritage city of Bath and the English Cotswolds slightly further afield.

We just had a wonderful hen weekend at Dinckley Court. The house and grounds are beautiful and we all enjoyed it so much. We had very good weather and spent a lot of time sitting outside in the garden… More
Thank you for letting us know you had a wonderful weekend and hope to return again. I apologise you had a problem with shower, water pressure has never been an issue before. However, we will double check all shower heads to ensure they are working properly. One of the baths referred to which has a shower without curtain is solely for use for hair bath - it is not for standing use. Thankfully with the luxury of eight bathrooms should a problem arise it did not impact on your stay. Once again, thank you for your booking. Wishing you a wonderful wedding celebration.
