The Central England/Cotswolds region
Oxfordshire is one of England's most beautiful counties. To the north and west lie the world-famous Cotswolds area of rolling hills and picturesque villages, to the east are the stunning Chiltern Hills, and to the south lie the chalk North Wessex Downs. Rivers such as the Thames, the Windrush and the Evenlode wind through all parts of Oxfordshire, adding to its distinctive character. It is the most rural county in the South East region with over 50% of people in Oxfordshire living in small towns and villages. Its charming and historic market towns and the architectural splendour of Oxford city make Oxfordshire a popular tourist destination and a highly sought-after film and TV location.
It would be impossible to list all the places in Oxfordshire worth visiting, but obviously the city of Oxford ranks very high, as does the charming town of Henley in the south-east of the county, famous for the Royal Henley Regatta, one of the finest traditional English spectacles, with boats and marquees alont the River Thames and everyone dressed in their finery. The Cotswold town of Woodstock will be enjoyed by all visitors and is home to one of the greatest palaces in the world, Blenheim Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our holiday cottage in Woodstock is a superb location to explore north Oxfordshire, as are many of our serviced self-catering Oxford apartments, particularly those in Summertown and North Oxford. We also have plenty of excellent short let accommodation for visitors who want to be based in South Oxfordshire, from serviced apartments in South Oxford to properties in Abingdon and the surrounding villages.
The nearest shops are in the village of Kidlington which is 2km away with supermarkets, chemist and other shops and restaurants. The town of Woodstock is 4km away and one of the most pleasant and historically famous towns on the edge of the Cotswolds. In the town of Woodstock you can enjoy excellent shopping, fine dining at the Feathers hotel and restaurant and typically English pubs. You can also spend many days exploring the picturesque scenes of Blenheim Palace. There are two pubs in Thrupp within 3 minutes walk, both serving British pub food and frequented by the many passing holiday makers enjoying life on the Oxford Canal. The canal runs parallel with the River Cherwell which is a major tributary into the Thames. There are many picturesque walks along the cal and river which allow you to enjoy some of the best scenery of the Oxfordshire countryside, all within easy reach of the city of Oxford.
