Hints and Tips on Cottage Holidays in Iffley Village

Choices when it comes to places to visit on a cottage break include National Trust Houses, gardens and quaint villages and towns. One of the best places in Oxfordshire for a memorable day out has to be Woodstock and Blenheim Palace. Woodstock is home to fine historical buildings and some lovely pubs serving good quality food. Blenheim Palace is reached via Woodstock and with its Churchill associations, this grand country house is a lovely place for a day out. You can even visit Winston Churchill’s grave in the nearby village if you wish. In summer time, the aroma in the gardens from the jasmine trees at Blenheim Palace is just sublime and in winter time you may be lucky enough to catch a Christmas fair.

If you enjoy visiting fine country homes, to the north east of Iffley you can head over to Buckinghamshire and discover the National Trusts’ Waddesdon Manor with its impressive turrets and generous gardens. For children, there is a fantastic woodland playground and for eating out there is a coffee shop and excellent restaurant. Or if you prefer, pitch up with a picnic and enjoy eating al fresco.

More delights of Oxfordshire can be uncovered on a cottage holiday if you had south east of Iffley and visit the riverside town of Henley on Thames which is around 22 miles away. Henley on Thames promises fine historical buildings and wonderful walks by the river side as well as boat trips if you prefer to see the sights from the water. National Trust members may also want to visit nearby Greys Court when in this part of the country. Entry is of course free to National Trust members and Greys Court has some beautiful gardens, including a walled garden, a wisteria garden that dates back to the 1800s and a kitchen garden where a variety of vegetables are grown.

Another great place to visit, relatively easily accessible from Iffley is West Wycombe which is around 23 miles away. West Wycombe is a village which is protected by the National Trust and is a fine place for a day out whilst on a cottage getaway. Walk up the hill to the mausoleum for fine views of the village and countryside below. Brave visitors may want to visit the eerie Hellfire Caves, a network of caves located under this hill which has links to the manor house in the village. After all that, the garden centre on the edge of the village has a lovely little café. For a day out to remember, West Wycombe comes highly recommended.
