Make a Holiday Rental or Cottage in Oxfordshire your home away from home

Oxfordshire is a delightfully quaint part of the English countryside, steeped in history and festooned with picturesque scenes worthy of any decorative chocolate box! There seem to be two sides to Oxfordshire holidays; firstly, holidays taking advantage of the incredible rural beauty, whether by travelling slowly through it or simply immersing yourself in the warmth of the local community, or secondly, Oxford holidays sightseeing in the county’s capital city, where many centuries of history are brought to life.

Things to do on holiday in Oxfordshire

The Oxfordshire Cotswolds are a stunning region of rolling hills, chalk streams and functioning market towns, and offers one of the best places in England for walking, cycling and riding holidays. With over 500 miles of footpaths, bridle paths and cycle routes across the country, it is no wonder that Oxford accommodation is so highly regarded by walkers and lovers of the British countryside. Walking, cycling or riding along the Fosse Way will quickly brings you into the stereotypical Oxfordshire countryside, adorned with golden stone cottages and market towns.

You can always get a round of golf whilst staying in Oxford accommodation. There are many excellent golf courses throughout the region, both 18 hole and 9 hole. You can also try your hand at many other activities from fishing to flying a small plane!

There are many tourist attractions around Oxfordshire, and not only in the capital city, Oxford. Blenheim Palace, the Vale of the White Horse, the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Mattocks Rose Garden all receive huge numbers of visitors, who leave both impressed and inspired.

Places to go on holiday in Oxfordshire

The city of Oxford is a great city with many different facets of interest, from the Guided Ghost tours to the famous buildings of the university. Floating or punting down the river on a fine summer day gives you one of the finest views of the city, and one which is rarely seen. The Oxford Canal is also a great place to fish.

Henley-on-Thames is a delightful town on the way towards London, but for one weekend a year, when the Henley Royal Regatta drifts into town. This is a particularly good time to be in Oxford, but trying to secure Oxford accommodation during this week may pose problems!

Weather in Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire shares the varied weather that the rest of England has to deal with, but speaking generally, average temperatures in January are quite mild, remaining around 7°C even during cold periods. In summer, the countryside becomes awash of colours, and daily temperatures reach an average of 22°C, but whenever you decide to take Oxford accommodation, packing a jacket is a good idea!

Travel to Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire is well connected, especially due to its relative proximity toLondonand the transport networks associated with England’s capital. Whether you are driving or travelling by public transport, there should be no problems in reaching your self catering Oxfordshire holiday accommodation.

It had absolutely everything you would need and more, the fire was already prepared and there was a box of matches left for us, the barbecue was ready with a fresh bag of coal inside, the owners had left us a full basket of home grown vegetables and some breakfast food in the fridge and they have books and this month's magazines out for guests to read. The cottage is in a great location and there is lots to see nearby. The owners were great at answering any questions both before and during our stay. We would recommend this cottage to anyone and will definitely return again in the future.

The house, garden and surroundings ensured we could relax and the prior communication from Mark was very good. Tracey, who helps look after things, was lovely and offered help, although we never needed any! If you are looking for a quiet corner of the world, then look no further! The village and short walk to Greater Tew on a lovely summers day to the local pub was great. Picture postcard stuff!

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    I've book this place to celebrate my 40th with a group of 16 friends. From the beginning, Penny was very attentive and accommodating. Initially we were planning on staying 2 nights but due to the summer season we had to book 3 nights (but Penny was very generous and gave us an great discount). The house is even more amazing than looking in the photos. It is decorated to such a high standard that it makes you feel very special. The Sonos sound system with speakers that can be controlled individually was fab.. The cinema is just unbelievably beautiful. We also used the Arctic House in the back garden to grill marshmallow after our BBQ by the hot tube. Penny has left towels and hotel style toiletries for each guest. I added some chocolate to the guests bedroom and some 'thank you' signs with their names at each bedroom door and they felt pampered. The hot tube is big enough and very pleasant. If you use is constantly (as we did) by the third day you may need to change the water (it would be good to have some instruction about how to do it). The bedrooms have a great sound isolation and everyone could sleep very well. It would be better to have double beds that could be separated in twins if needed as we had single friends that unfortunately had to share beds. The kitchen is well equipped and we made a great use of the wine fridge. I would suggest that an espresso machine, with capsule system, would have been a plus ;) Enough parking for several cars and great taxi system in case you want to go out and have a feel drinks. We even had the fireplace on. The woodland area is very pretty. We had lobster lunch on Friday at the Bird in Hands pub (In Sonning Common) and this was just delicious (with fresh lobster from Cornwall). It was a pleasant 40 minutes walking there from the house (http://www.birdinhandsonningcommon.com). At the check out they were very relaxed and we left the house without any pressure. The check in at 10am and check out at 6pm allowed us to enjoy a full 4 days of luxury celebrations. On Sunday we had a short drive to Henley-on-Thames and for 99 pounds we could hire a luxury Olympic Class launch with Hobbs (http://www.hobbsofhenley.com/olympic-class-launches) and spent 1 hour cruising that exclusive area. You can bring your own champagne on board and one of our friends was self driving the boat for us. We are def considering returning there in the future. Everyone loved it! Pure hedonism!
