The Lion at Wendlebury
We're big fans of this group, with other properties such as The Chequers and The Townhouse – among others – under their belt. The Lion at Wendlebury is the latest to be added to the collection – a recently re-launched 18th-century village pub in Oxfordshire that's also home to 13 very chic new rooms.
Each is dog-friendly, has an en-suite with a high-pressure walk-in shower and is individually decorated; choose from standard, superior or deluxe. Regardless, you'll be greeted by a restful space, complete with antique furniture, Feather & Black beds, velvet blackout curtains and Nespresso machines. Some feature full-height glazed doors leading onto Juliet balconies, others have dual-aspect windows, and several are suitable for families.
It's an inviting and characterful place – there's a welcoming bar, Cotswold stone wall dining rooms and a beer garden, ideal for a pint on warm days. Food-wise, ingredients are locally-sourced from the Cherwell Valley and the surrounding countryside – how does pressed chicken, tarragon and apricot terrine, spiced chickpea, feat and mint burger, or roasted guinea fowl with chorizo and saffron aioli sound?
Wendlebury itself is a picturesque spot, with the inn at its centre. Blenheim Palace and Oxford are close by, whilst shopoholics will be clapping their hands with glee – the property is just two miles fromthe Bicester outlet village. Indulge in some retail therapy, then back to The Lion for a tasty meal and a cosy place to lay your head.

From London, take the A40 to the M40, follow the M40 and then take exit 9 to the A41 in Oxfordshire. Continue on the A41 until Wendlebury Road, and The Lion is on the right.
