Oxfordshire Inns and Hotels

You are here >> Inns in the Heart of England >> Inns in Oxfordshire

Please scroll down the page to view our hand-picked selection of hotels and inns in Oxfordshire. This beautiful county is within easy distance of London, between the Cotswolds and the Chiltern hills. Here you will find the dreaming spires of the famous university town of Oxford and its glorious collegiate buildings. Picturesque Woodstock is home to impressive Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Or for a bit of retail therapy, try the shopping village at Bicester or 'ride a cock horse' to the market town of Banbury.

Most people come here to get away from the city and out into the countryside. A favourite destination especially for weekenders from London, Oxfordshire inns and hotels offer the very best in food, drink and accommodation. Many inns are walker-friendly with boot rooms for muddy boots and wellingtons, and many are dog-friendly too. So where better to enjoy all that Oxfordshire has to offer, with its quintessentially English villages, historic towns and glorious countryside, than the local pub or inn?
