  • A traditional inn: Enjoy a relaxing and restful stay at The Fat Fox Inn, a charming little abode in Oxfordshire’s Watlington. Just 15 miles from Oxford and set on the northern edge of the Chiltern Hills, a stay in this town places you within easy reach of picturesque walks along postcard-perfect pastures and soft sloping hills.

  • Peaceful rooms: Featuring quaint and inviting country-style decor, the guest rooms are havens of rest and relaxation. Located in a converted barn to the rear of the main building, they assure a unique and tranquil experience, complete with all the necessary mod cons - including a television, hairdryer and tea and coffee-making facilities.

  • Heart-warming fare: After a day of sightseeing, you’ll love feasting on hearty British classes and international favourites at the hotel restaurant, before retiring to the bar to discover an extensive list of wines, ciders and beers. Unsurprisingly, this hotel was awarded a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice award in 2020.
