Accommodation Description:

Situated close to Banbury Cross itself, The Whately is set in its own beautiful gardens. The cast of Jane Austens Pride and Prejudice got into character easily during their stay here while filming the TV series in the surrounding area, taking inspiration from the stunning scenery all around. Hidden staircases, priest holes and the resident friendly ghost of Father Bernard are famously part of the charm of this 17th Century treasure.

A good starting point for exploring the Cotswolds, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle and Oxford.
