The nearby Blenheim Palace draws many visitors to this corner of Oxfordshire – eager to see where a young Winston Churchill lived – and Macdonald Bear Hotel is just as historic. Built as a coaching inn in the 13th century, it retains plenty of period features, from the wooden beams to original stonework throughout. It is a 4 star hotel with a country house feel in an excellent location in Oxfordshire. While the ancient roots remain, today’s hotel is altogether more modern – where traditional features and classic décor mix with contemporary amenities and comfortable furnishings.
The charming village of Woodstock offers shops for antiques and gifts, as well as tearooms and inns full of character – all within a few minutes’ walk from the hotel’s front door. Within the hotel, the restaurant provides a 2 AA Rosette standard dining experience, perfect for romantic meals and special celebrations. It offers an elegant fine-dining experience, in a comfortable but sophisticated environment. While large windows look out onto the grounds, the open fire offers an intimate feel to the dining room. The menu brings out the very best from seasonal ingredients, with a cuisine that balances classic and contemporary influences to create fantastic English food.
In the Churchill Lounge and Bar, the style reflects the building’s historic features, with a few modern furnishings, to provide a smart but informal environment for afternoon tea, light bites or home Style comfort food – as well as a wide range of drinks.
