Why We Love It

  • This converted coaching inn is between Banbury and Oxford
  • The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its rolling landscape and chocolate-box villages, is 20 minutes' drive away
  • There's a cosy bar with a flagstone floor and a wood-burning stove


The Cartwright Hotel is a former coaching inn dating from the 16th century. It is near the Oxfordshire/Northamptonshire border between Banbury and Oxford in the quintessentially English village of Aynho, known affectionately as The Apricot Village due to the abundance of fruit trees. Legend has it that villagers in the cottages used to give apricots to the local lords of the manor as rent.

Broughton Castle -- a grand, moated manor house with ornamental gardens -- is around 15 minutes' drive away, or you can visit the Cotswolds countryside, Silverstone Circuit or Bicester Village designer shopping outlet, which are all within 20 minutes' drive.

Bletchley Park, the British Motor Museum and Waddesdon Manor -- a 19th-century manor built in the Neo-Renaissance style of a French château -- are all within 35 minutes' drive.

The hotel boasts an oak-beamed real-ale bar with a flagstone floor and a wood-burning stove, and dishes served in the candlelit restaurant are made from locally sourced seasonal ingredients. Bedrooms are individually designed and have Wi-Fi.

The room was small and dark. The carpet was stained and it just wasn’t very appealing.
