Our Location

Easington House is situated on the edge of the town, a few minutes walk from the centre, where you can find shops, pubs, restaurants and the Castle Quay shopping centre. This is a great location, making an ideal base for exploring the local areas, such as the City of Oxford with its dreaming spires (direct trains into Oxford approx 20 mins.), and the Cotswolds, including the delightful towns of Chipping Norton, Burford, Moreton-in-Marsh and Bourton-on-the-Water.

Also nearby are Woodstock (including Blenhiem Palace), Stratford-upon-Avon for Shakespeare, Bicester Village Shopping Outlet, Silvertone Racing Circuit, Waddesdon Manor and Broughton Castle. There are also some beautiful public houses located within the pretty Oxfordshire countryside, which is also perfect for walking and other outdoor pursuits. We are also well placed for the M40 with good access to Warwick Castle, the NEC and Birmingham Airport.
