There is plenty of choice for food and drink locally with the family run Horseshoes pub serving locally sourced food in central Witney. The Meze Lounge and restaurant is an authentic Mediterranean dining experience using traditional Mediterranean ingredients and spices for those looking to try exciting new foods. Less than a 10 minute drive away is The Fleece, a bright gastropub with seasonal menus, stripped wood flooring & chic rooms in a Georgian building that overlooks the expanse of Witney’s beautiful Church Green. It has twice been voted one of the top twenty pubs in the UK.
Whilst there's a wealth of things to see and do on your doorstep, you can reach Oxford – a cultural and historical magnet for visitors from the local area and around the world – in less than 40 minutes by car. Windrush Place is surrounded by local places of interest and excellent sights to visit and enjoy.
The picture-postcard village of Minster Lovell, just a couple of miles away, is a perfect example of a Cotswold stone village with local country inns and gastro pubs, and there are hundreds of similar destinations ideal for a cycle ride or family outing.
Blenheim Palace, a magnificent house and garden, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, is well worth a visit, and there are lots of other houses, gardens and country parks, as well as woodland walks in the Forest of Wychwood and in Charlbury.
Twenty minutes drive from Windrush Place, Oxford has a wealth of attractions. World class museums, art galleries and historic buildings, in and around the colleges of the University, are a timeless joy to discover. Top quality arts and entertainment are all available in abundance, while the River Thames flows through the centre, offering bankside walks and meadows, and boat trips too. You can enjoy a serious day of shopping in Oxford too, or you could branch out only 22 miles away from Windrush Place to Bicester Village, one of the country’s largest designer shopping destinations.
Families with children will enjoy the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens, or the Cogges Manor Farm Museum in Witney, offering demonstrations, tours and animal feeding - perfect for little ones.
