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 Five Arrows Hotel 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 retains all the charm and character of its quintessentially English past. Each of the 16 bedrooms is individually and uniquely decorated. Spend your time here wandering the vast landscaped gardens of Waddesdon Manor, exploring the stunning interiors of the house itself or splashing the cash at nearby Bicester Village. The hotel garnered a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
