The village of Ascott-under-Wychwood is the perfect location from which to explore the Cotswolds. The village itself is incredibly pretty, with a church and traditional village shop. There are plenty of walks you can do directly from the pub. Our staff will be happy to provide you with route maps.

Here are a few suggestions of other places you could visit in the area if you fancy going further afield.

A Palace worth visiting

Blenheim Palace is a sensational attraction for all the family, going with adults? You can visit the main Palace and it’s stunning gardens. You will find a quieter champagne bar located in its formal gardens and there is always plenty to do and see. If you have little ones in tow make your way over to the Pleasure Gardens, where you can delight in a butterfly house, an adventure playground and a relaxed child friendly cafe.

The perfect place to shop

Burford Garden Company

Burford Garden Company is the perfect place to relax for a day. What’s more it has been dubbed the Harvey Nicols of the Cotswolds. Located just outside the pretty town of Burford you will find a shopping mecca for the whole family. There is a toy shop to die for, with a small cinema for the little ones, a glorious foodhall and an interiors and clothes shop you won’t be able to resist.

Far Peaks Climbing Centre

If you have very active little ones why not jump in the car and make your way up to the Far Peaks Climbing Centre. Located about 30 mins from the pub, your little monkeys can enjoy having a go at climbing. They take children as young as three. Booking is necessarily if you require a lesson. There are also adult climbing walls, so no excuses grown ups!

A fabulous hairdresser

Located in the beautiful town of Woodstock, Nevrus and his team can cater for all your needs. They provide a top end cut & colour services, all within the beautiful setting of a Woodstock.
