Located in Oxfordshire, North of Witney on the B4022, just outside the small village of Hailey - this classic Cotswolds hotel is in an ideal location in the heart of the country within a few miles of Oxford, Chipping Norton and major motorways. The Bird in Hand is a Grade II listed building. Visually, it is a classic, graceful, stone and slate Cotswold building. Located between Witney and Chipping Norton on the B4022, the hotel is a mile outside the village of Hailey and set on a slight rise among green fields and graceful Cotswold countryside. From the south, the building stands out from the landscape, reminding us of the heritage of the Cotswolds, middle England and the beauty of this part of our fragile world. Nestled amongst the rolling countryside of the Cotswolds, the Bird in Hand offers you a warm, relaxed welcome. The Inn abounds with natural Cotswold stone and a number of heavily beamed rooms, each with its own warmth and character. The oldest room is a focal point, with its huge inglenook fireplace, which blazes away with enormous logs during the cold winter nights and is enhanced with a display of local flowers during the hot summer season. Since the original 17th Century Inn was totally renovated, it has endeavoured to provide excellent service and mouth-watering food in a warm, friendly and relaxing atmosphere. The Inn is ideally suited as a base from which to discover the delights of the Cotswolds and surrounding areas. Whether a visit to the dreaming spires of Oxford, Blenheim Palace or touring the villages of the Cotswolds, the choice is yours. The Inn is also centrally located to join the motorway system giving straightforward access to all parts of the South, West and central parts of England. Major roads locally are: A34, A44, A40, M40. With access to M4, M5, M25 and M42.
