Hornton Grounds Country House, Banbury, Oxfordshire
Hornton Grounds Country House offers comfortable, warm and welcoming pet friendly B&B accommodation in a beautiful part of Oxfordshire at Banbury. We have award winning accommodation that is perfect for you, your dog and your horse, providing the perfect base for exploring The Cotswolds.
Our guest rooms have a homely feel and are located within our Grade II Listed Queen Ann styled façade house. Originally a farm house, the property dates back to around 1680 and is a true rural retreat for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of busy city life. Whilst the house is very old, all the modern amenities are available, excellent heating and hot water from an eco-friendly system and WIFI throughout the house.
Award winning real farmhouse breakfasts are served in the Breakfast room which has a wonderful large fireplace. Our breakfasts feature our own sausages and bacon, new laid eggs home grown tomatoes in season and homemade bread featuring local Cotswold flour and homemade preserves many featuring fruits from our garden.
The old Cotswold barns have been converted into superior modern stables and there are large modern farm buildings which house the Aberdeen Angus cattle in winter.
The farm aims to grow all the protein and energy for the livestock on the holding using good crop rotations whilst maintaining and encouraging the wildlife on the farm. Hares, foxes, deer and all sorts of mammals can be spotted around the fields. The bird life is wonderful from skylarks to buzzards to lapwings and a myriad of LBJ’S (little brown jobs!)
A young woodland has been planted around the lake and we hope this mixed woodland area will attract even more wildlife. Already we have Canada Geese visiting the lake and Buzzards nesting.
We have beautiful gardens to sit in and enjoy the tranquility, watch the gliders drift over in the sky from the near by Shennington Airfield from the patio and watch the abundant birdlife in the surrounding trees. For the more energetic have a game of croquet on the lawn or a game of tennis on our court.
