The Central England / Cotswolds / 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.
The Oxford / Burcot-on-Thames area
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.

The property was very welcoming and clean. We all felt at home and Annette was very helpful. The property catered for our every need with plenty of space to socialise. It was perfect for all ages, both young and old, with a beautiful garden. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be keen to visit again.

Dinkley Court is a beautiful house with plenty of space and amenities. The conservatory is so pretty and light and there are lots of intetesting bits of furniture and art. We had a great stay for my hen weekend! The owner, Annette, was really helpful and posted us back some items we'd left there without charge. Very kind of her! I would definitely recommend this property to a friend and stay there again.

Stayed here in January for a surprise 30th birthday for my wife with family and friends (15 adults and 4 children under 3)
We travelled on a snowy winters day and I was delighted to find that the property was easy to find, in a great location but felt like we were in the middle of the country side.
My wife who had no idea where we was going was straight away impressed as we pulled up to the building and things just got better as we walked in to a warm, welcoming house. The Kitchen\conservatoty was a great place to get together, with under floor heating, great views to the garden and a kitchen fully equipped with everything you'll need for cooking for large groups. The bedrooms and living room were all well furnished and pretty much everyone had there own bathroom to use, the place really was faultless.
We did have plans to go out to Oxford on the Saturday but the majority of us made use of the house and the extensive Gardens which was covered in snow during our stay, it looked amazing and we all had great fun and didn't want the day to end. The pub just around the corner from the property (Chequers) was also a great place to relax after being out all day and they too were very welcoming and made us a number of original and really tasty cocktails.
On the Sunday, some of us went for a walk straight from the property, some went to Abingdon and some of just stayed at the property to watch the football on Sky, this place really did just keep everyone happy.
The owner Annette is lovely and is willing to help out with anything you need to make your weekend as special as she can, she was also available for any questions or advice either by email or Phone and she really did make organising the weekend away a delight.
Highly recommended for family stays and group events, Can't wait to return and experience this property again in the Summer.
