Local Attractions: Explore the Cotswolds from Windmill Farm

Windmill Farm is set on the edge of the English Cotswolds where 3 counties meet. Our rural village setting provides a perfect spot to begin your exploration!

Local Attractions

There are many classic Cotswold villages, just a short drive away, which are ideal for an afternoon visit, with cream tea, or stroll in this beautiful English countryside.

Take a gentle stroll into the village of Clanfield and spoil yourself with a tea time treat from our local village bakery, Blake’s Kitchen, or pop in at one of the pubs for a traditional pub lunch. A short walk in the other direction leads towards the historic Friars Court which dates back to 1149 when Monastic Knights of St John founded the first ‘hospitallery’ in Oxfordshire. The resident friars would have offered rest and refreshment to weary medieval travellers. Friars Court boasts a moated house and garden and is well worth a visit during the summer months when they have public open days. Check their website for more details before you visit.

The charming village of Bampton, famous for being the filming location for television drama Downton Abbey, is just 5 minutes away. 

There is no shortage of options available on Windmill Farm. Visitors might choose to enjoy a walk along the many public footpaths on the banks of the upper Thames, the closest being at Radcot Bridge.
In addition, our on-site adventure activity provider and youth work charity Adventure Plus can provide activities such as mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, climbing and even bushcraft sessions. Advanced booking is essential.
