The city of Oxford can also be easily reached within 20 minutes drive down the A34 or by train from Didcot. Spend a day at your work location and return to your country retreat to unwind in what is one of the prettiest villages in England.

Convenient Location

Our location is perfect for those having to work in the South Oxfordshire area. We are in close proximity to Milton Park, Harwell Science area, The Diamond Light Project as well as the UK headquarters for the European Space Agency. If you are feeling particularly healthy all but the former can be reached by an easy cross country walk from our doorstep along local footpaths enabling you to possibly see deer and red kites on your journey to work.

Great Value & Convenient

Hotel accommodation in this area is very scarce and most rooms are generally located near to major road junctions leaving you no-where to go after work. Our rooms are the cheapest you will find in the area and are also clean and comfortable. Not only are our rooms good value but they are also within easy walking distance of the three village pubs of East Hendred, The Plough Inn, The Eyston Arms and The Wheatsheaf.

Wedding Guests

Nearby are a number of wedding venues such as Lains Barn, Barton House, Cold Harbour Barn and Ardington House. Those locations are all within a few miles drive making Mather House a perfect stopover location for those attending wedding celebrations or similar functions in the area.
