For the last 40 years we have lived in a 14C Farmhouse where our children have grown up, and now, married with children of their own, we find we do not have sufficient beds to put them all up together for a family Christmas. So my wife and I decided 4 years ago we would treat them all to a couple of days after Christmas in a family friendly hotel, each year somewhere different. The criteria is simple - must be a good 4 star hotel with large, comfortable rooms. Must have a good restaurant. Must have a good swimming pool, and lastly, must be children friendly.
This hotel is not as luxurious as others we have stayed in, but it suited us perfectly and perhaps most importantly delighted both our children and all the grandchildren. The location is delightful, and the staff are wonderful. Taxis into Oxford for visits to the Pantomime and museums quickly arranged resulting in a memorable family event. This year, our thanks to the Four Pillars (or De Vere as the new owners?).More
