The Feathers is a hotel in Woodstock in England. Located just 70 miles outside of London and a mere eight miles north of Oxford, this small town of just 3,000 permanent residents features some of the most beautiful scenery in the county. Blenheim Palace is a must-see attraction when visiting Woodstock. Situated on seven acres of land, the palace was once home to the 11th Duke of Marlborough and was also the birthplace of Winston Churchill. The grounds feature elaborate shrub designs, including an awe-inspiring maze and a sensory-pleasing herb garden.
The Feathers hotel is located just a short walk from the entrance to Blenheim Park in the heart of Woodstock. The park offers boat rentals during the summer months and fishing throughout most of the year--the fishing season runs from mid-June through mid-March in most years. This 2,000-acre park also offers guided tours, a putting green and activities for young children throughout the year.
The Feathers offers fine dining and comfort foods for guests looking for an authentic British culinary experience with a modern twist. In 2006, the restaurant at The Feathers hotel in Woodstock was named "Best Gastro Pub" by the editors of "Food and Travel" magazine. Hotel guests enjoy gourmet delights from the light tapas menu, the special Sunday brunch, the seasonal supper club and the affordable "luxury" menu available on weeknights.
