This stylish 18th Century Georgian manor house hotel is set amongst 16 acres of Berkshire parkland. A superb country hotel with an award-winning restaurant, a wealth of original features and excellent facilities. All 73 bedrooms feature an HD TV and complimentary high speed WiFi.
After joining the coach from one of the convenient local joining points, we head for towering spires of Oxford. We'll arrive around lunchtime and you'll have plenty of time to shop and explore as well as a one hour guided tour of the historic city, before rejoining your coach at the end of the afternoon and heading to your hotel.
After a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast, we make our way to Bath, one of our most historic and beautiful cities for more shopping and cultural exploration and one hour guided walking tour. Rejoin the coach late afternoon for your journey back home, arriving back during the early evening.
One of our most famous historic cities, take time to discover the history and heritage of Oxford, home to 1,500 listed buildings from every major period of British architectural history from the 11th century onwards. The centre looks like an enchanted fairytale city – making Oxford is a firm favourite of filmmakers from all over the world, from Harry Potter to Inspector Morse along with having inspired countless famous writers over the centuries. Oxford is flat and compact, with many of its major attractions, such as the University of Oxford and its 38 colleges; Bodleian Library, the museums, and Oxford Castle Unlocked right in the centre – perfect to explore on foot. Just a little out of the centre, you can find large green spaces like Christ Church Meadows, University Parks, the riverbanks and Port Meadow.ion, located high up on the Roman Fosse Way and offering fabulous views from its position as the highest of the Cotswolds towns.
Built for pleasure and relaxation, beautiful Bath has been a wellbeing destination since Roman times. The waters are still a big draw, both at the ancient Roman Baths and the thoroughly modern Thermae Bath Spa, which houses the only natural thermal hot springs in Britain you can bathe in. The compact, visitor-friendly centre is overflowing with places to eat and drink, plus some of the finest independent shops in Britain. Immerse yourself in Bath’s remarkable collection of museums and galleries, and enjoy year-round festivals, theatre, music and sport whilst Bath’s stunning honey-coloured Georgian architecture is straight from a Jane Austen novel.
