Park up, unpack, and make yourself at home in your lovely new lodgings. A fully-equipped kitchen awaits the chosen chef with all the appliances required to rustle up tasty, home-cooked meals that can be devoured at the breakfast bar, or as a group around the dining table in the orangery, which enjoys an abundance of natural light and peaceful garden views. In the evenings, kick back and relax in the sitting room, where you and your loved ones can stick a film on the TV as you're all kept toasty by the inviting warmth of a woodburning stove. When sleep calls, refresh with a rejuvenating bath or shower on your way to hunker down for a well-earned rest in any of the five inviting bedrooms. After savouring your morning coffee out back on the garden furniture, lace up your boots and head out to explore what your local area has to offer. In Deddington, you can stock up on homely supplies at the Co-op, buy some fresh, local produce at Eagles butchers and delicatessen, before settling down for a hearty pub lunch at The Unicorn Inn. There is also a monthly farmers market that takes place in town on the fourth Saturday of each month, one of the largest of its kind in the country! Drive north to Warwick, where you can roam the historic grounds of Warwick Castle, before you head back south to enjoy an afternoon strolling around Stratford-upon-Avon, a medieval market town and former home to William Shakespeare, and the current tourist hotspots of the Stratford Butterfly Farm and The MAD Museum. The National Trust spot of Stowe is also accessible by car, home to pristine gardens and an abundance of scenic walking trails. Spend the day at Soho Farmhouse, which has everything you need to experience the ultimate countryside retreat including spa facilities and fantastic food; be sure to also pay a visit to the magnificent Blenheim Palace, with its impressive architecture, palace state rooms and various exhibitions to enjoy throughout the year. If you're looking for more, head south to the city of Oxford, where you can spend time at the historic spot of Oxford Castle & Prison, roam the lush landscapes of South Park and the CS Lewis Nature Reserve, or brush up on local history at the Story Museum or the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. All of this and more awaits when you book a stay at Manaton. View on map About the location DEDDINGTON Banbury 6.1 miles; Bicester 11.3 miles; Oxford 18.9 miles.
