Description of Oxford Riverside Glamping
Oxford Riverside Glamping at Swinford Manor Farm is set within an Area of designated Outstanding Natural Beauty.
An ideal destination for a secluded and tranquil holiday, romantic weekend away, or as a base for exploration.
Oxford Riverside Glamping is situated within its own grounds and offers an alternative and truly rural escape.
You are provided with a luxurious and fully furnished bell tent (5 metres in diameter), that can comfortably sleep 2 people (but with room for up to 4 at a small extra cost).
Electric heating is installed in each one of our bell tents. Hot water bottles and extra blankets are also provided for those cooler nights, but we do advise that you bring some warm clothes just in case!
With stunning countryside to enjoy, we are located directly on the Thames Path, with beautiful riverside walks, fishing in season and birdwatching.
Opposite lies Wytham Woods, an area of ancient woodland as well as a site of special scientific interest.
Outside the main gate is a direct and frequent bus route to the centre of Oxford, the ‘city of dreaming spires’. The world-famous university is only 10-15 minutes away.
Within walking distance is Farmoor Reservoir, which boasts year round sailing and windsurfing as well as a wealth of wildlife to enjoy. Day passes are also available for trout fishing.
Attractions nearby also include Blenheim Palace, the Cotswolds, Stratford-upon-Avon and Bicester Village.
London, Bath and Stonehenge are also within easy travelling distance.
There are several public houses, restaurants and local shopping all within walking distance of the house.
