An award-winning coaching inn turned boutique hotel with fine dining – includes breakfast, tickets for Waddesdon Manor's grounds and optional dinner


A former coaching inn at the gate of Waddesdon Manor – a palatial chateau constructed in the 19th century by the Rothschild family – the Grade II-listed Five Arrows is now a charming country hideaway. Serving delicious cuisine, it preserves the air of both a traditional English country house and a thoroughly international establishment, drawing its influences from across Europe.

Leaning heavily on Tudor and Elizabethan architectural styles, this boutique bolthole with National Trust maintained gardens retains all the charm and character of its quintessentially English past.

The Classic Double rooms, named after Rothschild wines (in keeping with Waddesdon Manor's Rothschild family links), are all individually furnished with contemporary touches, meaning that each room is highly unique and incredibly charming in the style of an eccentric English country house.

Not only has the hotel garnered a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, but it's the proud recipient of the Best Loved 'The Boutique Award' (Best Small Hotel) for 2018.

Dining in the Five Arrows Hotel restaurant is a unique, double AA Rosette, Michelin Guide-recognised experience and features the finest and freshest of local ingredients used to prepare modern European dishes. Expect dry-aged sirloin steak, gourmet pie of the day with locally-foraged vegetables and lemon posset. There's an extensive wine list with wines drawn from Rothschild vineyards around the world.


Located in the heart of rural Buckinghamshire, Waddesdon Manor is a truly unique place and thoroughly rewards extended exploration. Staying at The Five Arrows, you have it right on your doorstep. Constructed in the late 19th century by the Rothschild family, the Manor has been restored by the National Trust. It houses the world's finest collection of 18th and 19th-century French decorative artworks and furniture, plus paintings by some of the masters of French, British and Flemish art of the day.

Stretching over 200 acres, the gardens at Waddesdon Manor are a work of landscape engineering and gardening on a colossal scale. Amidst the treasures they house is a stunning collection of sculptures with works ranging from the 16th century right through to the present day. The Aviary is well worth a visit and is a rarity in being an original structure from the Victorian period which still functions as a house for rare and colourful birds. Don't miss the stables which are now home to a sweet shop and a contemporary art gallery.

If you can manage to drag yourself away from the grounds, the shopping mecca of Bicester Village is just a 20-minute drive away. Please note that Waddesdon Manor is closed on Monday and Tuesday.
