An award-winning restaurant, spa with an indoor pool and a challenging golf course -- the Oxfordshire Golf Hotel & Spa Resort could be said to have something for everyone. In the heart of the Chilterns, it's surrounded by rolling hills and is a 20-minute drive from Oxford city centre.
The pretty market town of Thame is closer (10 minutes by car). Visit the Cuttle Brook nature reserve or the 5-mile Phoenix Trail along a disused railway. Further afield in the surrounding area, there’s the 15th-century Rycote Chapel, the Waterperry Gardens or Raymond Blanc’s 2-Michelin-Star Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. Bicester Village and its designer discount stores are a 25-minute drive from the hotel.
The hotel's golf course has 18 holes, four lakes and 134 bunkers. There is a Pro Shop, that offers tuition and swing advice, and the Spike Bar serves drinks for the end of a long round. Golfers must have a current handicap certificate to play.
For non-golfers, the Tempus Spa is a welcome distraction. Take a dip in the 15-metre indoor pool, or relax in the sauna and hot tub. Treatments range from the exotic lava shell massage (using tiger clam shells from the Philippines) and signature facials and manicures. Children are only allowed to use the pool from 12-4pm on weekends.
Breakfast is served at the AA-Rosette Sakura Restaurant (continental and full English options are available) and there is classic British fare on the menu for the rest of the day. Try the beer-battered haddock and triple-cooked chips, ribeye steak or duck salad, finished off with a selection of English cheese or chocolate and hazelnut cheesecake with clementine compote.
The bedrooms are a good size and have free Wi-Fi and access to a shared balcony that overlooks the grounds and surrounding countryside. Upgrade to one of the Penthouse Suites for a separate lounge, and an enormous private balcony.
