Location Information

Vespers is situated in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside, close to the village of Radcot and just two and a half miles from the historic market town of Faringdon. This vibrant town is home to a number of pubs, restaurants and coffee shops, and even has its own tower which sits atop Folly Hill and looks out across five counties. Being just a stone's throw from the River Thames, you can pick up the Thames Path and explore the river on foot, or perhaps hire a boat from nearby Lechlade-on-Thames.
For your shopping essentials, there are local retailers and supermarkets in Faringdon.
Radcot is well-placed for visiting the many picturesque towns and villages of the region such as Cirencester, Burford, Bibury and Bampton, the latter recognised by many as the village in TV's Downton Abbey, and is within easy reach for a day trip to the impressive city of Oxford.


Really enjoyed our stay at Vespers. Lovely sheppards hut. Great views down to the Thames. Lovely walks on the Thames as well. Good pub The Plough at Kelmscott & The Trout Inn at Tadpole Bridge. Very peaceful.

Many thanks for the fab review, David. We're pleased you enjoyed a 5-star stay at Vespers and hope to see you again soon.

Lovely little shepherd's hut to the side of the main buildings looking across open fields... Definitely at one with nature.
Everything was beautifully set up in the shepherds hut. The bed was extremely comfortable and it was so quiet and peaceful.

We are happy to you hear that you enjoyed your stay at the lovely Vespers and thank you for your wonderful review. We hope to see you again soon.
