Goring

Rolling hills, picturesque river banks, plus you're only an hour from the Big Smoke by train - this pretty village offers the best of both.

Watlington

This small but perfectly formed market town has an impressive high street and foodie offering, plus stunning walks aplenty.

Deddington

With streets lined with dark honey-coloured stone architecture this small, attractive town has impressive eat out options and walking routes.

Thame

A bustling high street brimming with brilliant indies and thriving cultural and lifestyle scene earns this classic market town top marks from Muddy.

Woodstock

Woodstock has everything you'd want from a Cotswolds market town - honey stone architecture, excellent gastro-pubs and independent shops - oh yeah, and a palace!.

Chipping Norton

If sitting plum in the centre of the Cotswolds doesn't impress you, the excellent gastropubs and cultural scene in pretty 'Chippy' certainly will.

Henley

Henley-on-Thames

A stunner of a riverside town with excellent restaurants and shops Henley is hard to beat (although you'll be paying for it!).

Jericho

For those who're not quite ready to ditch city life Jericho is a happy middle ground - its foodie scene punches well above its weight, plus you're a stone's throw from central Oxford.
