Boasting Blenheim Palace, a world heritage site and one of the country’s most spectacular landmarks, Oxfordshire is a destination for anyone hoping to combine their love of the great outdoors with a little history and culture - a place occupied by numerous castles, museums, stately homes, and gardens that beg to be explored. While Oxfordshire does boast an abundance of wildlife and scenic landmarks, including White Horse Hill, its architecture and industrial links are what people come to learn more about. We have an array of holiday cottages with pools across this magnificent county for such a purpose.
Step foot in the ancient city of Oxford and discover a wealth of treasures. Oxford University is renowned around the world, and its scholarly influence is certain to rub off on anyone visiting the city to admire its architecture, cultural landmarks and scenic parks. Famed attractions across this picturesque city include the university’s botanic gardens, the Pitt Rivers Museum, the Radcliffe Camera, and the Museum of Natural History, as well as the remains of a medieval castle. The university’s influence is far-reaching, with family-friendly exhibits, galleries and museums aplenty. Nearby Banbury is equally blessed with historic buildings, with Broughton Castle, Farnborough Hall and Deddington Castle all within easy reach. This market town, located on the River Cherwell, is a joy to behold.
If you’re looking for a quieter place of life, head into the Cotswold Hills, which lie just 12 miles south-west of Banbury. The market town of Chipping Norton was once a centre of industry, housing breweries, a wool mill, a tannery and an iron foundry. These days, you’re more likely to find a smattering of independent shops and tearooms, but architecture dating back to the town’s past should remind you of its importance. Chipping Norton is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding hills and countryside, where you’ll discover opportunities to ramble, bicycle, bird watch, angle, horse ride, and photograph the scenery.
Our cottages with swimming pools located across Oxfordshire boast comfort, style and character, with comprehensive facilities to ensure that you have the very best of stays. As if that wasn’t enough, access to a swimming pool will add a little luxury to your holiday that isn’t always found when self-catering. We offer a selection of properties with pools, including indoor pools, outdoor pools and heated pools. While some may boast access to a private pool, others will share with other cottages on the complex. Whichever you choose, you’ll no doubt enjoy the freedom and health benefits of pool access.
