A stay in a charming Oxfordshire town near one of Downton Abbey's historic filming locations - including full English breakfast and dinner

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to reside somewhere voted one of the best places to live in Britain? Well, now's your chance. The Sunday Times has previously accredited Witney with just that accolade, and with this Oxfordshire escape, you'll have the chance to see what all the fuss is about.

Oxford Witney Hotel offers a comfortable stay near the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. You’re a leisurely 20-minute stroll from Witney town centre and just five miles from Bampton, the small village where some of Downton Abbey is filmed. Back at the hotel, you'll have a considered range of facilities at your fingertips – take a morning swim in the pool, followed by some time in the sauna or steam room to de-stress and open up those lungs for some pure country air.

You're also perfectly placed to explore the surrounding sites, from the humble ambience of a working Victorian Manor Farm in Cogges to the opulence of Blenheim Palace. After a day discovering what makes the Oxfordshire Cotswolds tick, head back to the hotel for a delectable dinner in The Brasserie.
