Always a nice and peaceful place to visit. On the first Sunday of every month you can go to the top of the tower for a small fee, for amazing views of Oxfordshire.

What a beautiful and magical place! Our three year olds loved finding all of the animals and wooden carvings and we also did a bit of geocaching along the way.
