The Manor Wychwood is a gorgeous Cotswold holiday home. Surrounded by three acres of private parkland and with space for 24 people to sleep in 10 sumptuous bedrooms, it is ideal for your annual holiday with extended family, stag and hen weekends, or celebrating milestone occasions.
Tucked away in the peaceful hamlet of Fordwells in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), The Manor Wychwood is in the perfect location for groups who appreciate space and privacy. However, the house is not isolated, being only a short drive from the bustling village of Witney where there is an excellent choice of welcoming pubs, shops, cafes, supermarkets and other useful amenities.

In addition to green swathes of beautiful countryside laced with lanes, footpaths and bridleways along which to walk or cycle, there are pretty chocolate-box villages like nearby Minster Lovell where many of the cottages retain their traditional thatched roofs. On the other end of the scale are places like Woodstock with a wide choice of great independent places to eat, drink and shop. Blenheim Palace is only a 20-minute drive from The Manor Wychwood, with its magnificent house and grounds that never fail to amaze with their opulence and beauty, while the shops, museums and ancient spires of Oxford are not much further. There are multiple golf courses in the area, as well as opportunities to sail and horse ride.
