Woodstock, Kidlington and surrounding area
Woodstock is a beautiful unspoilt town on the edge of the Cotswolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty famous for its rolling hills and honey-coloured stone villages. Only 10kms from Oxford, Woodstock's unique location, offering easy access both to the city of Oxford, with all its visitors' attractions and entertainment, and also to all the natural beauty and rural attractions of the Cotswolds makes it a favourite choice as a Cotswold cottage holiday destination.
Woodstock is home to the stunning Blenheim Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the birthplace of Winston Churchill.
A historic town, with royal associations for over 1,000 years, Woodstock is beautifully preserved and extremely pretty, combining the facilities and attractions of a town with the size and peaceful atmosphere of a village.

In the surrounding streets are a delightful collection of antique shops, gift shops, clothes shops and art galleries for the visitor to browse around. Further facilities are a public library and an outdoor swimming pool in the summer. There is an impressive selection of pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, many with romantic ivy-clad facades, beautiful interiors and open fireplaces.
