Things to Do
Walking tour of Oxford
The ancient university town of Oxford is only a 20 minute cycle from us making Cedar Hollow @ The Oaks a great place to stay if you want to mix your country break with some culture, history and stunning architecture.
Stroll down the ancient cobbled streets, visit one of the many museums, or follow in the footsteps of CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien by having a drink at their old haunt - The Eagle and Child.
Afternoon Tea along the River Cherwell
A sumptuous afternoon tea is the perfect accompaniment to a relaxed outing exploring the beauty of Oxford as seen from the river.
Travelling past Christ Church meadows and the university college boathouses, then passing the tranquil water meadows surrounding Oxford including a visit to Rose Island - Lewis Carroll's favoured destination - the picture perfect backdrop to a lazy afternoon tea. The cruise lasts for a total of 1.5 hours.
A magnificent 117 hectare woodland mosaic of hidden valleys, varied landscapes and diverse habitats, on the southern slopes of Shotover Hill right at our doorstep - perfect for cycling, walking or running.
Walking in the Footsteps of C S Lewis
CS Lewis' nine acre garden is now a public park next door to us. By prior arrangement, you can also visit C S Lewis's house - The Kilns.
A tour of C S Lewis's Oxford and the rest of the Inklings working spots from the Eagle and Child pub to their Oxford colleges can be booked here.
