Escape to a honey-stoned bolthole on the banks of the River Thames near Oxford, with breakfast, two-course dinner, a box of chocolates and more


Sitting pretty on the riverbank in the pleasingly quaint village of Sandford-on-Thames, De Vere Oxford Thames is the perfect bolthole for a nifty city-country break. You're a mere three miles from Oxford's cobblestone alleys, history-making colleges, and basking in 30 acres of delightful English countryside on your doorstep. It's no surprise that De Vere Oxford Thames carries a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Guest rooms are understated and classic in decor, with toe-warmingly soft carpets in earthy hues, patterned bed throws and cushions, wooden furniture, and cosy sofas to curl up on with a good book. You can also opt for a more spacious Deluxe room, decorated in a comfortable yet chic style, with thoughtful design touches and luxury extras, some with views of the manicured grounds and the postcard-pretty countryside beyond.

Prepare yourself for a top spread of traditional British food at the hotel's River Room Restaurant, overlooking the tranquil river and grounds. Gorgeous original wooden beams, stone walls and warm furnishings set the historic Oxford scene at the high-ceilinged bar and lounge – settle near the fireplace, or go up the stairs to the wooden gallery above for an intimate drink.


Waltz around pampered and carefree at the leisure club, decked out in stark white, leafy decor and the odd dainty Roman-style stone statue and urn. The heated indoor pool, sauna, steam room and spa pool are yours to wallow decadently in, while a menu of body and beauty treatments round off the polishing and pampering. There's also a gym and outdoor tennis court (open seasonally), if you need to liven things up a bit.


Set just three miles from Oxford city centre, in a rather lovely riverside spot in the quaint village of Sandford-on-Thames, De Vere Oxford Thames relishes the best of both worlds. It's a doable 10- to 15-minute drive into town when you want to soak up the city's wisdom-rich history, multicultural university vibe, legendary spire-dotted architecture and eclectic nightlife.

When you feel like harmoniously losing yourself in unparalleled English countryside, you have 30 acres of quintessential English countryside on your doorstep to do just that. While you're in the area, the magnificent Blenheim Palace sits grandly the other side of the city – a 20-minute drive from the hotel.
