Green Close

Combe is close to the Oxfordshire Way and has many paths leading out of the village on really lovely walks.  You can go down to the Evenlode river  or cross fields to the Roman Villa at North Leigh. Park by the Combe Gate, and you can walk into the Blenheim Estate.  The Combe Mill gets up steam every few weeks - well worth a visit.


Close by are the Oxfordshire Museum, the Oxford Bus Museum and the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum.


We are about 45 minutes from the Stratford theatres and 30 minutes from Oxford and its colleges.

Green Close is a (mostly) stone built Grade 2 listed house set in about an acre of garden within the Conservation Area of the lovely village of Combe. The original part of the house is late mediaeval.


You can park just outside the house or  around the back where we keep our cars.  If you need to have your car under cover, that can be arranged.


Wifi is available for all to use.


If you are coming by train or plane, we will try to be around to pick you up from Hanborough station or Combe Halt.
