About The Hotel

Perfect for a Relaxing Retreat

Set in what was once a 13th century coaching inn, The Bear takes centre stage in Woodstock, a market town that’s full of Georgian character and well worth exploring.

The Bear has its own stories to tell: ask one of our team to show you the secret passageway, or find out more about the glove-making factory that operated here. There are anecdotes to share and unique features to reveal all over the hotel! 

When you’re ready to venture further afield, the historic city of Oxford is easily accessible and well worth spending at least a day getting to know. And of course, Blenheim Palace is just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel - a must-see while you’re here. 

With history, culture and stunning countryside to choose from, The Bear provides the perfect base, however you choose to spend your days. When it’s time to relax - whether it’s an indulgent afternoon tea served in the Churchill Lounge, a superb dinner in our restaurant or a well-deserved nightcap in our cosy bar – we’re ready to look after you.
