This 4-star hotel is a short walk from the historic market town of Witney, and 10 minutes by car from the village of Burford, which is on the River Windrush in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Lonely Planet calls Burford a "particularly picturesque place with higgledy-piggledy stone cottages, fine Cotswold town houses and the odd Elizabethan or Georgian treasure". Expect antiques treasure troves, tearooms and gift shops galore.
The hotel is less than a 30-minute drive from pretty Cotswold villages including Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold and Chipping Norton. For a day trip, the tourist-friendly university city of Oxford is less than 30 minutes by car, or the shops, bars, restaurants, museums and galleries of Cheltenham can be reached within 45 minutes.
After a day out exploring, retire to the hotel's extensive leisure facilities, including a heated swimming pool, a gym, a spa pool, a sauna and a steam room.
The Brasserie, a cosy dining room with exposed Cotswold stone and a wine wall, serves traditional English fare. Alternatively, snacks, light meals and drinks are served throughout the day in the bar and lounge. If you're feeling lazy, opt for room service -- deli-style snacks and pizzas are served from 12-10pm daily.
All 87 contemporary bedrooms come with digital TVs and tea- and coffee-making facilities.
