Picturesque Woodstock is home to one of Englands oldest and prettiest hotels. Built as a coaching inn in the 13th century, the Bear has played host to royalty, film stars and politicians.The Bear is a favourite haunt for romantic couples, especially since it became a hideaway for Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor at the height of their love affair. With its ivy faade, oak beams, open fireplaces and stone walls, it exudes warmth and cosiness, perfect if you want to escape from it all and treat yourself to some good old-fashioned hospitality.Extensively refurbished throughout, the hotel now boasts a state of the art Conference Suite named The Old Glove Factory.
The hotel is proud of its award winning 2 AA Rosette Restaurant offering Modern British Cuisine and friendly professional service.Ask at reception for a VIP invitation to Bicester Outlet Shopping Village, containing vouchers with discounts of up to 60% off brands including Timerland, Paul Smith, FCUK and Villeroy and Boch.
