ABOUT THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The Old Stables is 3km from Witney and only 20km from the university town of Oxford, city of dreaming spires and home of Oxford University - the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Closer to home is Blenheim Palace, a world heritage site and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. A visit to the house or walk in the grounds is highly recommended.

There are many fabulous walks very close to the farm. The closest, River Windrush Walk, takes you to the picturesque ruins of Minster Lovell and Dovecot, once home to Richard III's henchman, Richard Lovell. In the pretty medieval village, take time to visit the Old Swan pub for a drink or a meal.

You are never more than a couple of miles from a historic Cotswold pub. Another circular walk takes you to the village of Swinbrook where you should call in at the Swan Inn, the gastro pub decorated with pictures of the extraordinary Mitford family, who were major figures in the political, literary and social scenes for much of the 20th century and lived in Swinbrook House in the early 1930's.

The pretty Cotswolds village of Burford is only 9km away and on the way to the pretty Thames-side town of Lechlade you can visit Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens. In fact there is so much to see and do that the only way to find out is to come and stay!

PARKING

There is off road parking for up to three vehicles.
