One of England’s most captivating counties, Oxfordshire is renowned for its history and its beauty, awash with medieval villages and grand stately homes. An ideal destination for outdoor explorers, it boasts stunning rolling countryside, natural parks and numerous manicured gardens. Set in the quiet parish of Bicester, a town famous for its designer shopping village, The Holt Hotel offers traditional English accommodation in a truly picturesque landscape. Positioned close to the M40 motorway, this hotel makes for a quiet yet convenient base.

The hotel’s attractive brick façade, adorned with climbing ivy, is complemented by a fresh and cosy interior. Enjoy the space and comfort of newly decorated guest rooms, each individually styled with traditional furnishings or modern design, and tuck into eclectic breakfasts and romantic dinners in the award-winning restaurant, light lunches in the courtyard garden or drinks and afternoon tea at Highwayman’s Bar & Lounge. During your stay, opt to visit nearby Blenheim Palace, explore the Cotswolds and the Chiltern Hills, both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or take a memorable day trip to iconic Oxford.
