Located on the edge of the Cotswolds, Great Tew makes an excellent base for visits to Woodstock and Blenheim Palace or Stow, Burford and Bibury. Banbury and the M40 are less than 10 miles away. Also, Oxford is just 40 minutes by car so we are a popular venue for parents attending university graduations.

We are within easy reach of Cheltenham and Chippenham. Also nearby are Stratford and Warwick, home of the famous castle. Another favourite with our visitors include the Rollright Stones and the antique shops of Chipping Norton and Stow.
