The Ridgeway and places of local interest

Located literally on the Ridgeway itself at Wainhill there is plenty of walking along the ancient Icknield Way, up in the Nature Reserve at Chinnor Hill and along the Phoenix Trail. Maps are available of all the local footpaths and by-ways.

Only half an hour from the historic City of Oxford there is wealth of attractions to see and visit. With a regular coach service from junction 6 of the M40 the headache of parking in Oxford can also be avoided.

There are many beautiful National Trust Properties within the area, the stunning home of the Rothschilds, Waddesdon Manor is only 35 minutes drive away. The beautiful and historic house and gardens of Stowe and the grandeur of Cliveden. The riverside towns of Henley and Marlow so famous for their annual rowing regattas are within a half hour’s drive.

Local places to eat

There are several local pubs at Bledlow, Henton and Chinnor which are within easy walking distance across footpaths. For those with a car there are a number of extremely good restaurants in the area. For an additional cost, we offer a lift to either Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, the Michelin starred Sir Charles Napier Inn at Sprigs Ally or The Hand and Flowers at Marlow and can book you a taxi back afterwards which allows you to enjoy dinner with a glass of wine without the worry of driving.
