Woodstock is a beautiful historic market town in Oxfordshire, home to The Feathers Hotel and the magnificent appointed Blenheim Palace. The hotel has an antique clock that says it`s ten to eight… permanently. The idea is to clock off. Wind down. Chill out. You`re in Woodstock, and there`s no better place to enjoy meandering up and down the cobbled streets of this quaint picturesque town. The Feathers is perfectly situated, slap bang in the middle of the town itself, perfect for guests to enjoy a lovely country walk, browse the array of independent boutiques or indulge themselves within the 2,000 acres of parkland at Blenheim Palace, which is 5 minutes away.
The Feathers Hotel, Woodstock
Upon stepping foot inside The Feathers, we experienced a genuine warm welcome; it had a real home from home feel, intimate and cozy. It`s an establishment with real 17th Century character with the appeal of each bedroom having it`s own individual decoration. Our deluxe suite (Suite 1), was a fabulous size comprising of a large double bedroom, living area and luxury en-suite bathroom. I really liked the fact that it seemed distant from the majority of other rooms and therefore felt more exclusive. There are just 16 bedrooms and five suites at The Feathers, and come in all shapes and sizes. The hotel prides itself on it`s returning guests, who obviously have their favourite bedrooms, which means they are able to request their preferred accommodation each time they come back to stay. Following the recent refurbishment this year, the hotel has added in some boutique twists, with lush fabrics, funky lighting, free-standing stone basins and the guiltiest pleasure of all, a decanter full of jelly beans – a very tasty feature we must add!
The Feathers Hotel – Suite 1
As well as the varied types of luxurious accommodation offered up in the hotel, it also has meeting, conference and event facilities as well as some excellent areas to enjoy eating, drinking and alfresco dining. The Gin bar has over 60 varieties of gin and apparently you haven`t lived until you`ve tasted the Ultimate Gin & Tonic – a measure of Blackwood`s Vintage Gin from an individually numbered bottle, topped up with Q, the world`s most exotic tonic water, and ice cubes made from local spring water. Or if you feel like a bite to eat why not indulge in the tasting menu, afternoon tea or The Feathers great Sunday lunch, there really is a menu to suit any occasion!
The Feathers Hotel has some great `sleep` packages, which can be viewed here at http://www.feathers.co.uk.
