Stonor Park may be famous as a historic country house, but is not to be overlooked for family friendly events at Easter, Halloween and other school holidays with plenty of fun activities for kids.

The rural geography of Oxfordshire makes food and drink events a sought after delicacy with local produce in abundance. Highlights include the Wallingford Food Festival (May) and Didcot Food Festival (October).

Henley & its proximity to the River Thames lends itself to a renowned calendar of events including the Henley Royal Regatta (June/July), Henley Festival (July) and Literary Festival (October) with themed boat cruises from Hobbs of Henley proving a unique experience to any day out.
