About the hotel

The Falkland Arms is a beautiful 16th Century pub nestled amongst the pretty thatched cottages of Great Tew in rural Oxfordshire. The cosy bar invites visitors to step back in time, with flagstone floors, oak beams, wood panelling and traditional lead windows looking out across the gently rolling Cotswold Hills. All five bedrooms are en-suite and have been newly refurbished to a high standard whilst retaining their 16th Century charm.

Each room features a flat screen TV, real cafetiere coffee and tea making facilities, Egyptian cotton bed linen and a modern en-suite shower. The superior rooms also have a comfortable seating area. Downstairs, friendly staff serve delicious home cooked food and a selection of award winning real ales as well as wines, spirits and non-alcoholic drinks. The large garden provides a green oasis in summer months and the welcoming bar is perfect for warming up by the open fire on winter evenings. The surrounding village of Great Tew sits on the slops of a limestone ridge overlooking the Worton Valley and is steeped in history. Local archaeology dates the first settlement back to the Bronze Age and the parish church features an original doorway from its Norman conception. Many of the village houses have changed little since the 17th Century and are built with ironstone from Great Tew’s own quarry. The old post office is now the village shop and traditional tearooms and there is a café at the local cricket club. The Falkland Arms is perfectly situated for exploring the rolling countryside and hidden villages of the Cotswold Hills; a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Just half an hour’s drive away is the university town of Oxford; home to the oldest university in the English-speaking world and known as the ‘city of dreaming spires’ for its beautiful architecture. The Falkland Arms is the perfect destination for a relaxing break in a beautiful area of Britain at any time of year.

Gorgeous room!

Our room was at the top of this idyllic 15th century Inn.

We accessed the room via two steep, narrow, wooden spiral stairways from the bar. The room was long and narrow with an ensuite bathroom and a seating area to watch tv. The bed was comfy. When we arrived after hours of travel, however, there was no hot water, so we couldn't have a bath before we went down to eat our evening meal. (Hence my score of just 5) We think though that they knocked a bit off the bar bill in recompense, and the water was hot when we went up to bed later. The food was very good, not the usual chip- dominated bar food. There were several good beers to choose from, and breakfast next morning was fine. I would say though that some of the seats in the bar were uncomfortable, we changed tables to try to find more comfortable seats. I would definitely go there again. There was a genuine charm to this historic pub in the elilte and picturesque village of Great Tew
