I live a few miles away from the cottage and look forward to meeting you on your arrival. The cottage has a large map on the hall wall with lots of places of interest, pubs, walks etc marked on it. I will be delighted to recommend places to visit to suit your interests ; there are many and varied things to do nearby. I will be available if you have any questions or problems during your stay. Do bring bicycles if you have them as the quiet country lanes are ideal for cycling.

About the neighbourhood
Kencot is a small village, full of charming Cotswold houses. It is off the main tourist route so it is quiet but there are many things to do locally. If you like good food and pubs there are plenty to choose from. If you like quiet country walks there are lots of places to go with a network of footpaths across the local fields - an OS map is provided for you to borrow. Cultural attractions include William Morris's hose at Kelmscott, Buscot Park , Blenheim Palace and Oxford- colleges, museums, punting. The Cotswold Wildlife park is 5 miles away, close to the charming medieval town of Burford which is full of interesting shops and galleries. If you like aeroplanes you are likely to get good views as they go land at nearby RAF Brize Norton.
Getting around
The best way to get around is by car. You will need one to get there, do your shopping etc as the nearest shops are 2.5 miles away. However, for local exploring a bicycle is perfect as there are many quiet lanes with very little traffic which allow you to soak up the joys of the local area . You could easily cycle to Kelmscott, Filkins Woollen Weavers and Bampton, where some of Downton Abbey was filmed., If you fancy a day trip to Oxford then you could leave the car in nearby Carterton for free and take the bus in. You can even get a through bus ticket to London.
