Destination guide

Oxfordshire and its very English pursuits

A charming thatched cottage here, a drystone farmhouse there, undulating hills of chalk stone and green fields all around – it must be Oxfordshire. Welcome to one of England's most handsome Home Counties. Famed around the planet for its erudite students and genius-breeding university, it's a place to explore both history and backcountry. Oxfordshire vacation rentals could have you punting along lazy rivers that reflect grand Gothic architecture. They could have you calling "cheers" in student pubs. They could have you wandering the wonderful Cotswolds or Chiltern Hills.

Things to do

Oxfordshire is stately heritage galore

Make a trip to rich and wonderful Blenheim Palace. It's a grand and gorgeous example of an age-old English heritage home, tagged by UNESCO and hailed for its beautiful baroque shell. The palace is ringed by formal gardens and laden with opulent interiors. It's also the revered birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. Meanwhile, the town of Oxford itself is packed with wonders. To mention just 1, the Ashmolean Museum is a must for culture lovers. You'll encounter sketches by Michelangelo, Greek marbles and eerie death masks, in its eclectic collections.

Activities

Home comforts in the Home Counties in Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire vacation rentals take a turn for the cute and the cozy. If you've been dreaming about curling up next to a crackling log fire or lazing in a converted barn while enjoying sweeping views of the country, this might just be the place to do it. When you do decide to venture out, you'll have hillwalking and punting along the river, real ale tasting and horse riding all there ready for you. If you've gone for Oxfordshire vacation rentals in Oxford town itself, you can replace those with history walks and guided tours of world-famous university buildings.

Weather

Snug winters and walking summers in Oxfordshire

Summer is when Oxfordshire cottages in the countryside attract most hillwalkers. Whether it's the Chilterns or the Cotswolds that beckon, the months between June and August are the most reliable for sun and warmth. Winter is the time to come if you're eager to crank up the cozy factor. Chilly winds and rains descend on the county from November to March, making it prime time to seek out Oxfordshire vacation rentals with a fire or a snug lounge.

Natural features

Oxfordshire is quintessential England

The far west of Oxfordshire is taken by the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Known for its quaint, stone-built hamlets, and rolling hills and valleys of greenery, it's among the most quintessential of English reserves. The south of the county is the province of the North Wessex Downs, which rise and drop in a series of chalk ridges, hosting Iron-Age hill art, like the Uffington White Horse. Nearby is the Chiltern Hills AONB. That fringes London with green meadows and winding tributaries that feed the mighty River Thames.
