Artist Residence Oxfordshire  

South Leigh, Oxfordshire, England


Cozy Oxfordshire Inn

The definition of a charming, quintessentially English pub with rooms, but with a twist. Full of eclectic design, as well as high end luxuries, this thatched roofed haven is the perfect base for exploring some of the best countryside the UK has to offer.

The Location

Tucked away in the beautifully rural South Leigh in much loved Oxfordshire, this pub with rooms is a perfect place to stay while discovering some of the very best England has to offer. The spired skyline of stunning Oxford – with its fast trains to London and elsewhere – is a 20 minute drive away one way, while the dreamy, postcard-worthy Cotswold’s are a half hour drive the other.

Road access is easy – with the M40 not far – and if you are flying into the UK, Heathrow or Birmingham Airports are both approximately 1 hour, 30 minutes away by car.

  • The traditional feel and fireside delights of The Mason Arms, the attached pub. Every dish and cocktail is carefully prepared. You’ll be so happy you decided to stay above one of the regions very best eateries
  • The hip and eclectic decor is a major draw. Each bedroom is unique, quirky, yet high-end and comfortable
  • The fairy tale location of the hotel is unbeatable. Its proximity to numerous romantic and charming sites is very convenient
  • The staff here are exceptional. Friendly, relaxed, and incredibly helpful, their level of service is a stand out
  • The quality of the rooms’ finishes is fantastic. Claw-foot tubs, rainfall showers, and luxurious toiletries and bedding are just some of the ultra-comfortable features
  • Room service is available here but our guess is you’ll want to head to the cool bar area
  • Wifi is included, and given this inn’s Instagram-worthy charm, you’ll need it
  • A great breakfast is available in Mr Hanbury’s Mason Arms downstairs
  • All six rooms have ensuite bathrooms featuring rainfall showers
  • There is one ground floor bedroom – The Barn – which is easier to access (with a small step as there is in the the pub)
  • Two of the Farmhouse Loft rooms are dog friendly, as is The Barn suite. There is a charge £20 per night, per dog, but that includes treats and a dog bed

When co-founder Justin went back home to help run the family bed and breakfast in Brighton, he had no idea he would one day be overseeing a small empire alongside his wife Charlotte. Be sure to check out another one of the pair’s excellent properties we’ve included in our collection Artists Residence Cornwall.

Inspired by Brighton’s vibrant art scene, he opened the doors to artists to decorate the various rooms in exchange for board. It was so successful, that he has now repeated this concept in three other locations. This innovative thinking has resulted in an original, stylish, and warm space that we can’t wait for you to discover. Check out Justin’s interview on our blog.
