What to do whilst on your holiday in the Cotswolds, Oxfordshire, Heart of England:

Thatched cottages and mellow country towns nestling in a beautiful rural landscape, impressive stately homes and historic landmarks – discover all the charms of this very English county when you stay at Hoseasons country lodges in Oxfordshire. Outstandingly lovely scenery creates the perfect backdrop for walking and cycling. The Vale of the White Horse, stretching from Oxford to the Cotswolds, encompasses the ancient Ridgeway track and its most notable site, the mysterious Bronze Age figure of a White Horse carved into the chalk hillside.
City of dreaming spires and Inspector Morse – no stay at our holiday lodges in Oxfordshire would be complete without a visit to Oxford itself. Wander round the famous colleges, explore the fascinating exhibits at the Ashmolean Museum, take a relaxing trip on the river and admire some of the city’s landmark historic buildings, or just indulge yourself with excellent shopping and fine dining.
The pretty Cotswold towns of Burford and Chipping Norton are among many other places of interest you can explore on lodge holidays in Oxfordshire. And be sure to visit Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Winston Churchill and a masterpiece of baroque architecture – its spectacular lodgeland was landscaped by Capability Brown.

Reviews from the Hoseasons website

We had a brilliant short break here. It's a lovely setting and a great place to unwind! There is also a lot to see and do! We particularly enjoyed Blenheim palace and Stow on the wold!! I really enjoyed our visit to Adam's farm (mainly because we saw Adam!!) but it would be a great day out for families!!
Wow ! What an amazing place !! Even though we had read excellent reviews about the Bluewood Lodges they still did not prepare us for just how outstanding the Lodges are. The standard and facilites far exceed anything we have experienced before on a self catering holiday. We usually have a rule not to visit the same place twice but we think we may have to make an exception in this case ! Also, would like to say a big thank you to the lady at Hoseasons (sorry, can't remember her name but she had visited the Lodges herself ) who gave advice on which lodge to book. Thanks to her advice , we changed the Norton Lodge we had initially booked from the central grassy area to one at the edge of the park which gave us far more privacy and had amazing views over the fields.
Superb accommodation in a superb setting. The lodges are well appointed in a quiet, well maintained park. Our lodge was beautifully furnished to a very high specification. The hot tub was an added bonus. The park is situated within easy reach of the delightful Cotswold countryside and villages. A highly recommended holiday break. Loved it!
