Oxfordshire Manor

Oxfordshire Manor Heart of England

A magnificent manor in one of the country’s most beautiful areas

Think of a magnificent English Manor House in the grand old style, and you’re imagining somewhere exactly like Oxfordshire Manor. Perfect for large family gatherings, house parties and parties, celebratory dinners, dancing, charity auctions or musical evenings the house exudes style and sophistication. Perhaps that is why it has been used so often as for period dramas and fashion shoots. And it is a favourite for weddings where up to 300 guests can be accommodated in a marquee on the lawn, a splendid setting overlooking the lakes. Or maybe it’s just a special family weekend together to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. Whatever brings you to the Manor, you’re sure to be enchanted.

Live in Classic English Style

Walk into the main entrance hall, in the classic English Country style, take in the stone floor and 18th Century fireplace which, when the fire is burning, is the perfect welcome home after a day out walking or riding, And it is ideal for afternoon tea, a dinner or drinks party or somewhere to meet and greet your guests. Wander into the drawing room, which has an Adam-style chimneypiece and Rococo plasterwork. Your eyes will be drawn above the fireplace to the family portrait of Rachel, Countess of Dudley and her son Roderick Ward. And you will be enchanted by the glamour, style and the sheer beauty of it all – topped off by those wonderful views over the garden. On into the dining room, with it’s original Jacobean panelling and table seating sixteen: perfect for intimate dinner parties and family Sunday lunches. The recently refurbished ballroom is a gem: licensed for weddings, it can seat up to 100 for a ceremony, or 80 for a dinner. Beautifully classical with a traditional minstrels’ gallery and tapestries adorning the walls, it has a wonderful carved oak fireplace above which hangs an impressive mirror.
