Set in the picturesque village of Black Bourton near Burford, “The Vines” has long been acclaimed for its fine dining in elegant surroundings. It is an ideal location for those on business in Oxford, Swindon, Witney or Brize Norton and perfect base for visitors to the beautiful Cotswolds.

So successful has the welcoming atmosphere of “The Vines” proved that a new wing has been added, overlooking the lovely Black Bourton church. Great care has been taken to design and furnish the spacious rooms to allow guests every modern convenience and comfort. Most rooms have king size beds and we also have twin and family rooms. All rooms have en suite shower rooms and the new wing features superb wet rooms. Modern requirements such as flat screen televisions, refrigerators, desks, Internet access and direct dial telephones make a stay at “The Vines” a time of pleasure.

“The Vines” Restaurant and Bar were famously designed and decorated by John Clegg of the BBC Real Rooms Team and is stunning and quite different to what you might expect from the beautiful Cotswold stone and vines exterior. The spacious and comfortably furnished lounge area of ”The Vines” with its leather sofas is an ideal place to relax with a drink or light snack whilst you enjoy a game of chess or just chat, particularly by a cosy log fire on a cold evening.
