Overview

This refined manor-house hotel was built in the early 19th century. Once the home of famous polar explorer Francis Howard Bickerton, it is in a peaceful location near Oxford, and within easy reach of attractions such as Blenheim Palace and Cotswold Wildlife Park.

Central Oxford is a 10-minute drive away (note there are access restrictions in the city centre) or a 20-minute bus ride from the village of Iffley, a 5-minute walk from the hotel. The hotel is also a pleasant 40-minute walk from the city, along the River Thames. The 12th-century St Mary's Church -- one of the UK's finest examples of Romanesque architecture -- is within a 10-minute walk of the hotel. As well as its famous "dreaming spires", Oxford's attractions include the Ashmolean Museum's collection of art and archaeology, and the Bodleian Library. Other area attractions include Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill, which is a 25-minute drive from the hotel, and Cotswold Wildlife Park, which is a half-hour drive away.

Each of the hotel's 77 comfortable rooms and suites has free Wi-Fi, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and complimentary hot chocolate and biscuits. Upgraded and family rooms include extra sitting and sleeping areas, with larger suites including 4-poster beds or whirlpool tubs, iPod docks and laptop safes. There are three wheelchair-adapted rooms, and a further 15 boutique, contemporary rooms in the nearby Elm House, which can be hired separately for large groups.

Breakfast and dinner are served in the hotel's relaxed Iffley Blue restaurant. There's also a bar serving food throughout the day, a terrace, a lounge, a conservatory, and meeting, banqueting and event spaces.
