OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Set back from the main road that goes through Stanton Harcourt, this lovely hotel is in a great spot for both city and country explorations. Head into Oxford on the nearby Seacourt Park & Ride, drive into the Cotswolds for stunning scenery, or head northwest to the lovely market town of Witney. The Devil's Quoits is a stone circle with an unusual history, just a ten-minute walk along a lake from the hotel.

By car: around 1 hour 30 minutes from Bristol, 2 hours from London and 3 hours from Manchester. Free parking available.

By train: there are direct trains to Oxford from London Paddington, Birmingham and Manchester. The hotel is a 20-minute drive. Book trains to Oxford.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

It's all about getting snug at the Harcourt Arms. There are soft sofas, embracing armchairs and rich rugs all over the public areas, and soft carpets keep the property feeling cosy. It all feels quite farmhouse, with plenty of leather and natural wood, and unusual antique artworks on the walls offer intriguing diversions.

THE FACILITIES

Staff at the Harcourt Arms are a joy to interact with, offering smiles, jokes and a casual but personal service. The hotel offers room service for anyone wishing to dine in their bedroom, and they'll offer tips for local walks and things to do. There's a small shop in the car park selling local produce, too.
