There are pretty Thames hamlets, idyllic villages and Royal Wantage at the foot of the downs, the lone Thames ford and an old railway track to discover on your bike. Take to the hills on foot in between with stunning views, ancient woodlands and the oldest dated chalk figure in England. Enjoy our choice of beautiful villages with delightful accommodation and float back to Oxford aboard a Thames boat.
