A honey-stoned bolthole on the banks of the River Thames near Oxford, with breakfast, a bottle of wine and three-course dinner at the AA Rosette restaurant

Sitting pretty on the river banks 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 multicultural hubbub, and basking in 30 acres of delightful English countryside on your doorstep.

Flaunting its golden honey hues, the charming Cotswold-stone brick building houses the AA Rosette-awarded River Room Restaurant, an atmospheric lounge and bar topped with lofty ceilings and original wooden beams, a dreamy Roman-inspired spa and a clutch of warm, welcoming rooms. It's no surprise, then, that De Vere Oxford Thames carried off 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 postcard-pretty countryside beyond.

Prepare yourself for a top spread of traditional British food at the hotel's AA Rosette-awarded 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.


Waft around like a carefree pampered Roman at the Riverside Health 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 bath are yours to wallow decadently in, while a menu of body and beauty treatments rounds 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.
