  13. Blenheim Palace, Waterperry Gardens, Harcourt Arboretum, Wittenham Clumps, Uffington White Horse, Annie's tea room in Thrupp, Shotover, Badbury Clump... there's loads of places. Depends what you want really.

    One of our summer favorites is to drive up to Burton Dassett Hill in the evening, park on the top of the hill, fire up the bbq and open a cold beer and watch the sunset. :)

    I remember my mum and dad having a massive row when he tried to teach her to drive at Avon dassett! Not the best place to learn how to do hill starts! Did you see when they had all the bonfires lit for the queens jubilee? We watched from Epwell and you could see Avon dasset Fire and then more in the distance. I like the round house thing at the top :)

  17. I took the dog for a long walk on Port Meadow this morning - I'd suggest you avoid this for the picnic unless you're not bothered by cow pats and goose poo.
