About the neighbourhood
A Salters Steamer Boat can be caught from Oxford and back to Days Lock and a walk taken back to Dinckley Court, or Nuneham Courtneys arboretum can be visited - full of amazing trees, plants and beautiful peacocks. Restaurants within 10 miles for food lovers include Raymond Blanc's Quatre de Saison, the famous Crazy Bear Thai restaurant, The Plough restaurant/pub, serving fabulous Tapas (can be delivered), and the Chequers pub, 400 yards away, serving great british food. Historic Oxford is 15 minutes by bus. Henley and Windsor, with its royal castle, are both within a hour's drive, with the Georgian Hritage city of Bath and the English Cotswolds slightly further afield.
