Food Scene
One of Charlbury's 3 main local pubs, with amazing food and beer garden... It's a 2 minute walk from the house. It's the nicest pub, reflected in the prices. Nice place to go for early breakfast too!

Sightseeing
Blenheim Palace (where Churchill was born. Winston Churchill was born in 1874 and spent much of his life here and indeed it is where he proposed to his wife) and the village of Woodstock IS a five-minute drive away. Lovely to have lunch or high tea... and also some interesting historical audio tours. It's free to wander round the grounds - lovely gardens - but you will have to pay to go inside the house. This entitles you to go on the various tours. If you pay for one day, you get an annual pass for the same price. It's worth 'converting' your ticket to this annual pass. http://www.blenheimpalace.com

New College, founded in 1379, is one of the larger colleges at the University of Oxford, and is particularly well-known for its Chapel and Choir. You can go to choral evensong there free and hear them sing. It's young men from the college and choristers from the boy's school. Wonderful. Check times of evensong before you go as they can vary week/weekends. NB no evensong during holidays. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g186361-d195357-Reviews-New_College-Oxford_Oxfordshire_England.html

Lovely pub, great for food but also great for drinks. In winter, lovely toasty fire...in summer, great garden at the back with tables...
Another local pub. Award wining selection of brews...This is a drinking pub rather than a gastro pub (for that we go to the Bull opposite)

Fabulous museum in Oxford. You can get there by getting the train from Charlbury - that's probably easiest. Also you can take a bus from outside the Bell bus. Good for family trips as there are great things for children of all ages. https://www.ashmolean.org
