Oxford City with its colleges, museums and dreaming spires is within easy access by car or the convenient and regular bus service.
Woodstock is a town steeped in history and is situated just to the north of Oxford. It began as a coach stop around the Royal hunting lodge, which later became the site of Blenheim Palace, stately home of the Dukes of Marlborough since the early 1700's.
The town has an active local business community and makes provision for most everyday needs of visitors without having to venture too far: Post Office, bank, supermarket, newsagent, cafes, restaurants, art galleries and a wide range of shops are all situated in the town centre. There are lots of local folk with boundless character, all forming the bustling community which we are
sure you will enjoy experiencing during your visit.
