A stunning, relaxing place to eat, drink or stay in the heart of the Cotswolds.

Ideally situated within a few miles of Oxford, Witney, Banbury and major motorways, once inside, you’ll discover a gem of a classic Cotswolds Country Inn.

Boasting a cosy bar, sumptuous restaurant, sixteen delightful “en-suite” bedrooms, three function rooms, The Bird in Hand is a perfect place to come and enjoy whether you just want a getaway or if you are a in the area working.

Typical of the region, The Bird in Hand was originally constructed in the traditional manner in the 17th century.

Today, the inn has been totally renovated, but is still rich in original charm and gorgeous period features, such as natural Cotswold stone and heavy wooden beams.

Each of the rooms has its own unique, individual warmth and character. The oldest room is the heart of the hotel.

The huge inglenook fireplace blazes away during the cold winter nights and during the hot summer season, the hearth is decorated with a display of local flowers.

With excellent service, delicious food and a warm, friendly, relaxing atmosphere, the Inn is great as a base from which to discover the delights of the Cotswolds and surrounding areas.
