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.

A wonderful home from home

5 of 5
Follies Barn was a lovely base for our stay in Oxfordshire. Conveniently placed to access Oxford and the surrounding attraction, easy to find and very comfortable. The barn is beautifully finished in every way and has everything you may need for your holiday. However, what makes or breaks holiday rentals are the owners and again here, we found no fault. From the initial booking and paying of deposits through to the warm welcome, generous food supplies (including some wonderful homemade shortbread) and the final farewells, the owners were faultless. Warm and generous without being intrusive. We had a fabulous holiday at this lovely home.

Great house in a picturesque village

5 of 5
We stayed in the house over a weekend to celebrate my parents 40th wedding anniversary. The house is very spacious with lots of living space - we were 14 adults and 2 children staying and it didn’t feel crowded! Amber gave me some great recommendations for eating out and places to visit. We all had a great weekend and will be recommending this house to our friends!
