Set in the heart of the English countryside, Oxfordshire is rich with culture and filled with natural beauty. The large palace estates, idyllic meadows and stunning skylines give the county an almost dreamlike feel.
Transport yourself to a world of punting on rivers, rambling deer parks and quaint, honey-washed villages. Feel inspired by the university city of Oxford, alma mater of countless historical greats, discover an ancient civilisation as you explore the world-famous museums or reconnect with loved ones over afternoon tea in the country. If you’re heading to see all the wonderful sites of Oxfordshire, make sure you do it in style with large holiday cottages from kate & tom’s.
The home of extravagant palace estates, ancient castles and historic university buildings, Oxfordshire is full of rich culture and history. Take a trip to Blenheim Palace, a grand 17th-century stately home and wander the huge gardens. Or, for a truly unique experience, head to the Radcliffe Camera, an 18th-century academic library and reading rooms.
Oxfordshire is just as modern as it is traditional and cultured. Pick up a treat or two at the most popular luxury shopping outlet in the world, Bicester Village. Or, take the kids to the UK’s only crocodile zoo for a fascinating day out with the extraordinary animals. Film fanatics, rejoice! Oxfordshire has even been the backdrop to a number of huge blockbusters, including Harry Potter, Spectre, Alice in Wonderland and Dr Strange.
The honey coloured stone towns and villages of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds are an unmissable destination. Discover local delights in the bustling market towns of Chipping Norton, Woodstock and Burford. Why not stock up on New College Pudding, Banbury cake and Oxfordshire sausages in your own luxury Oxfordshire cottage?
Nearby Widford is home to St Oswald’s Church, a tiny church set on its own in the Windrush Valley. Discovered in 1904, the remains are thought to have been used as an 11 th century Saxon or Norman building. If you catch the history bug, the Rollright Stones are well worth a visit. The mysterious stones are thought to be a monarch and his courtiers that were petrified by a witch.
