Top Things to Do for Children

Everything you need to get the most out of your stay


About 9 miles away, the picturesque village of Bourton-on-the-Water is an outstanding place of natural beauty. Pretty houses flank the river Windrush, which winds its way through the centre, and is shallow enough for your children to splash around in. Although a village, there is plenty to see and do, so you can be sure that everyone will be kept busy. Attractions include a model village (www.themodelvillage.com), the Cotswold Birdland Park (www.birdland.co.uk), The Dragonfly Maze (next to the Birdland Park) and the Cotswold Motor Museum, home to Brum!

Woodstock and Blenheim Palace

Around 16 miles away/30 minute drive lies the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace, where you can lose yourself in the estate’s vast and beautiful park gardens. As well discovering all the interesting things inside palace, outside there is also an adventure playground, a maze, a butterfly farm and a miniature train. Check for limited opening hours in the winter months. In Woodstock there are lots of shops to explore and there is the local Oxfordshire museum on the high street – worth a quick visit to enjoy a coffee and cake in the airy glass-fronted café.
