Welcome to one of England's most scenic counties, oozing genteel charm and home to a generous smattering of Oxfordshire cottages.
Think of Oxfordshire and the University town of Oxford instantly springs to mind, brimming with magnificent architecture and gowned academics riding bicycles. Of course, the city is a must-see for any Oxfordshire cottage stay and, in addition to punting along the river and climbing historic towers, you can witness the remains of a dodo, the real Hogwarts Hall and outstanding art in the Ashmolean Museum.
Historic gems abound! Don't miss Churchill's birthplace
Blenheim Palace, a splendid example of Baroque architecture or
William Morris' summertime residence Kelmscott Manor. Explore
mighty strongholds like Wallingford Castle or Broughton Castle, as
featured in 'Shakespeare in Love'. Learn about the great
minds of science at the Museum of the History of Science. Or, spend
an hour or so musing over the artefacts held within the Oxford
University Museum of Natural History, which includes everything
from dinosaurs to dodos.
Escape to the countryside! Ramble or ride along famous paths like the Oxfordshire or d'Arcy Dalton Ways. Browse sleepy villages and riverside towns like Henley-on-Thames, famous for its annual Royal Regatta.
Family fun! Meet Thomas and friends at the Didcot Railway Centre, or leopards and lemurs at the Cotswold Wildlife Park. Have a picnic at Harcourt Arboretum. Or kit the whole family out in affordable designer gear at Bicester Village.
