Outstanding sailing club with courses run throughout the year. 

Largest inflatable water park in the area - so much fun for everyone.

The Guardian's Jay Rayner States - "The simple menu at this Oxfordshire pub barely hints at the glories of the food on your plate. It's a class act."

Best pizzas ever?!!

The Telegraph Rates 8/10

'This is very much a foodie pub. They bake their own focaccia every day, infusing The Five Alls with tempting aromas. The menu offers classics – flat-iron steak with lovage and horseradish butter, steak and kidney pie – alongside clever combinations such as crispy duck with pomegranate and mango salad.'

Sezincote is a unique and extraordinary Indian house set amidst the Cotswold Hills. The architecture is in the Mogul style of Rajasthan, with a central dome, minarets, peacock-tail windows, jali-work railings and pavilions. A curving Orangery frames the Persian Garden of Paradise with its fountain and canals. The house is set within a romantic garden - a fine example of the Picturesque style - with pools, waterfalls, a grotto and a temple to the Hindu Sun God. Sezincote was built in 1810 by Charles Cockerell, who had worked out in India, assisted by his brother, the architect Samuel Pepys Cockerell, and Thomas Daniell, the great painter of Indian architectural scenery.
