The Central England/Cotswolds / Oxfordshire region
New Yatt is a small village 2.5 miles from the bustling market town of Witney . Situated on the edge of the Cotswolds it is the ideal base to explore Englands largest designated ' Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' whilst still being close to Oxford the 'city of dreaming spires'.
Grab a snack at Mrs Bumbles Delicatessen whilst viewing Burford's honey coloured limestone buildings which appear to have hardly changed for hundreds of years. Or have lunch at the Cherwell Boathouse before taking a leisurely punt down the river taking in the University sights.Perhaps later taking a walking tour of Oxford visiting Christ Church and its Great Hall, inspiration for Hogwarts Hall of Harry Potter fame.

A possible itinerary
Day 1 Visit Oxford. Breakfast at the Ashmolean, lunch at Browns, explore the famous Oxford colleges and grab a pint at one of Inspector Morse's favourite pubs The Eagle and Child.

Day 3 Antiques hunt in Stow on the Wold and Moreton in Marsh. Perhaps 2 of the best known Cotswolds towns.
Day 4 Woodstock and a visit to Blenheim Palace. Lunch at the Kings Arms one of the Top Ten Pubs in the Good Pub Guide 2014
Day 5 Crocodiles of the World followed by a visit to Cogges Manor Farm and possibly a paddle in the pool at the Leys if there is time left.
Day 6 Bourton on the Water another beautiful Cotswold town with the added attraction of Birdland and maybe a visit to the motor musuem
Day7 If its fine a trip to Chipping Norton , a swim in the open air pool and a visit to Fairy Tale farm.
We could go on... a trip to Burford and its beautiful shops, Bicester Outlet store to grab a bargain, Chipping Camden for more antiques , golf ( 5 courses within x miles) sailing at Farmoor, shooting, horse riding... the list is endless.
For the foodies
There are plenty of great places to eat and drink in the area.
The Good Pub Guide 2014 lists The Royal Oak in Ramsden (2m) and also mentions The Angel, The Fleece and The Horseshoes , all in Witney (2.5m). We can recommend them all.
If you like your ale then Camra encourages you to visit The Eagle Tavern and The New Inn in Witney. The local beers including Hobgoblin and Black Wych are brewed at the Wychwood Brewary (2m)- pre book your tour and don't plan to drive afterwards.
For the ultimate eating experience a bit further a field (21m) but worth the trip is Le Manoir Aux Quat' Saisons- book well in advance and unless your surname is Abramovich go for lunch.
A full list of all the places we love to visit is available in the house.
