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.

1

Watlington

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

8

Deddington

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

2

Thame

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

3

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!.

5

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
6

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!).

7

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.
