The Central England / Cotswolds / Oxfordshire region
The Oxfordshire region of central England is deservedly popular with visitors as it offers a combination of stunning cities such as Oxford or Bath to visit, at the same time as some of England's most beautiful countryside, including the Cotswolds just to the north of Oxford.
The Cotswolds is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, famous for its distinctive landscape of gentle hills, hidden river valleys, and its delightful market towns and villages made of golden-coloured Cotswold stone. For many people, a Cotswold village represents the perfect English village, and the area is extremely popular with both the English and with visitors from abroad.
The Cotswolds offer wonderful gardens and manor houses and palaces to visit, the most famous being the incomparable Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, home of the Dukes of Marlborough since the 18th century and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are also many sporting and arts festivals, historic and friendly country pubs for lunch, antique shops to visit and plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling, riding and other outdoor activities. This area is a delightful holiday retreat at all times of year, not just the summer. The winter offers the pleasures of pub and restaurant meals in front of blazing log fires, in spring there are bluebells and spring lambs, and in autumn the colours are stunning.
Oxfordshire itself is one of England's most beautiful counties. To the north and west lie the Cotswolds, 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.
The Oxford / Central Oxford area
Oxford, the poet Matthew Arnold's 'city of dreaming spires', is deservedly famous the world over for its history, its ancient university and its architectural splendour. Stunningly beautiful in its buildings, Oxford also enjoys outstanding natural beauty with its rivers, canals, parks and gardens all offering ideal places to walk, explore and relax.
Oxford is also a thoroughly modern university city with an exceptional range of cultural activities and entertainment, and, not least, a thriving academic and business centre.

We stayed at Butler Close for a number of weeks over December-January 2012 while I was a visiting fellow at Oxford (Two adults, two children 14yrs and 10yrs). The accomodation was central and a nice walk to a local corner store and into the centre of town. It is right on the bus route as well. It was very comfortable and warm. The owner was excellent and very helpful in ensuring the accomodation was ready and perfect for us. We were met at the property and given the key, and had the appliances explained. I highly recommend using this unit. We will stay here if we come back to Oxford.
