White Horse Inn
Historic Inn in Woolstone, Oxfordshire
The White Horse Inn , Marsh Way
Accommodation Description:From: £60.00
The White Horse offers top class accommodation and good food. We have 6 comfortable en-suite rooms all within the Olde Coach house with the view of the court yard. The thatched roof, oak beams and log fires make for a cozy and warm atmosphere..
The White Horse is one of Britain's oldest Inns and with its thatched roof, oak beams, log fires and warm welcome is probably one of its most beautiful, as well. Built in Elizabethan times, the pub itself is almost half a century old and is set in the olde worlde village of Woolstone, in the heart of the vale of Whitehorse; 11 miles from Swindon, 5 miles from Faringdon and 7 miles from Wantage. Popular with locals, tourists, and all those who love good food and top class accommodation, the pub is perfect for those who enjoy walking and exploring the visual delights of the nearby White Horse Hill, the Ridgeway and other ancient monuments
The White Horse Inn is named after the monument on the nearby hillside of Uffington. Nobody knows for sure when the Uffington horse was cut, though the general belief now is that it is probably 2000 years old and possibly even older. The Ridgeway, which is possibly the oldest road in Europe, lies within easy reach of the inn
Stone Age man once walked along its route - not only long before the likes of Stonehenge came into being, but even before Britain was an island.
