A charming stay in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, at a former 13th-century coaching inn - includes breakfast and two-course dinner

Discover all the charms of an Oxfordshire Cotswolds market town from the authentic comforts of Macdonald Bear Hotel. Set in a former 13th-century coaching inn, this ivy-clad abode offers plenty of traditional charm, alongside buckets of modern amenities to ensure an undeniably comfortable stay. Add to this the award-winning dining - the restaurant here holds two AA Rosettes - and you have a country retreat you'll want to write home about.

Enjoy classic British cuisine in the atmospheric restaurant, which boasts an authentic stone fireplace and elegant decor, whilst The Churchill Lounge offers afternoon teas alongside views over Woodstock's market square. Pursuits in the area include exploring the historic Blenheim Palace a five-minute walk away or visiting Winston Churchill's grave at nearby Bladon. However you choose to spend your days, the plush guest rooms at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winner welcome you back nicely.

Macdonald Bear Hotel's restaurant is the deserved owner of two AA Rosettes, owing to its fine, classic British menu that makes the most of the season's ingredients. The large bay windows offer ample chance to people-watch over breakfast and the open fire really adds to the ambience come evening. Meanwhile, The Churchill Lounge offers afternoon tea, snacks and drinks, alongside views over the market square from its large sash windows.


The market town of Woodstock lies just eight miles northwest of Oxford. The historic Blenheim Palace is just a 10-minute walk away and you can visit Winston Churchill's grave at Bladon a five-minute drive away. Woodstock's town centre is home to a handful of shops and amenities, and Oxford is about a 30-minute drive away, should you fancy a further choice of shops, restaurants, bars and historic sights.
