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.

Local high street didn't have much so went to Chipping Norton for the afternoon, which was lovely.

Als Ausgangsbasis für die Erkundung der Umgebung war das Cottage wunderbar. Wir haben die Zeit hier sehr genossen und können uns vorstellen hier wieder zu wohnen. Familie Steel waren nette Gastgeber und sehr hilfsbereit.
