History of Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire was formed as a county in the early years of the 10th century.

Historically the area has always had some importance due to the agricultural land in the centre of the county. Ignored by the Romans, it was not until the formation of a settlement at Oxford in the eighth century that the area grew in importance. Alfred the Great was born across the Thames in Wantage in Berkshire.

The University of Oxford was founded in 1096, though its collegiate structure did not develop until later. It grew in importance during the Middle Ages and early modern period.

The area was part of the Cotswolds wool trade from the 13th century, generating much wealth, particularly in the western area, in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. Morris Motors was founded in Oxford in 1912, bringing heavy industry to an otherwise agricultural county.

The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, the main army unit in the area, was based at the Barracks on Bullingdon Green, Cowley.

I had a very comfortable and pleasant stay at the Oak Tree Copse B&B, in the quiet and pretty country surroundings. The owner was welcoming and friendly, keen to give details of local info. Easy to drive to Oxford, and good food to be had at the pub in Stanton St. John, and other nearby.

An enjoyable stay in beautiful surroundings. Our room was exceptional. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and we were instantly made to feel comfortable and at home. Thankyou for a lovely weekend.

Dear Ladies / Sirs, Regarding the value for money we simply can't give anything more than excellent. But if that would have been possible we would have done that! What an experience!

We were very well looked after with fans in our rooms, very comfortable beds, good simple breakfast with fresh eggs from owners’ chickens and excellent coffee. The bathroom was very clean but a little cramped for space. Otherwise it was a lovely place to stay and we were made very welcome.

We had a wonderful time at The Vines.I would recommend anyone who wants to experience the British countryside visit Black Bourton and stay at The Vines.Food was excellent and the people were so gracious.

The service at this inn is fantastic; everyone is extremely welcoming and helpful. The rooms are clean; my only criticism is that the decor needs a bit of updating.
