A CITY & VILLAGE TOURS SLEEPOVER PACKAGE

OXFORD & THE COTSWOLDS                                              3 days

This three day Oxford & The Cotswolds SleepOver based in a stylish modern hotel just outside Witney combines a visit to Blenheim Castle with two popular City & Village Tours itineraries: Downton Abbey Country and Oxford, the Isis and Iffley.


Day One: Arrive in Witney, Oxfordshire to meet the Blue Badge Guide at midday for a two-course carvery lunch with coffee. This afternoon we are going to show you the Downton Abbey outdoor filming locations starting with a visit to the ancient village of Bampton. This is Downton Village and here we see Isobel Crawford’s house, the Downton Cottage Hospital and that pesky cottage that caused Mrs Patmore so much grief. We also visit Yew Tree Farm – the wonderful Cogges Manor Farm, which is so old that the first owner was sewn into the Bayeaux Tapestry. Even those who’ve never seen the programme will enjoy our tour of the beautiful Oxfordshire Cotswolds.


We check in to the hotel with time to relax before the first of our 3-course, 3-choice dinners. The hotel has a swimming pool, spa bath,steam room and sauna.


Day Two: To fully appreciate Oxford you need to explore on foot with a Blue Badge Guide. You will see a lot without walking too far today. Oxford’s mediaeval origins and eventful history have produced a thrilling blend of stories. The tour is peppered with a wealth of entertaining anecdote of town and gown, of celebrated eccentrics and beautiful buildings. You’ll see the Radcliffe Camera, the Sheldonian, the Bodleian Library & go inside an Oxford College. After free time for lunch on The High we take a little cruise on the Isis, as the Thames is known in Oxford, to visit the hidden village of Iffley. Here we find a remarkable Romanesque church with a John Piper window. Back to the hotel for the second of our evening dinners.


Day Three: After breakfast and check out it’s a short drive to Blenheim Palace. Your tickets include a range of experiences and tours for members to choose on the day.


There is a restaurant on site to buy lunch before beginning the drive home at 2.30pm or at a time to suit you.
