Thrupp offers many relaxing walks along the canal towpath, or along the banks of the river Cherwell, which hosts an abundant of wildlife.
    Thrupp has a public house called the Boat, with its open fires and beamed ceiling. Annie’s Tea Room, situated on the other side of the canal has a selection of homemade cakes and pastries to purchase.

    "Absolutely fabulous week. We love S24874 and its location- just perfect for Oxford, Blenheim Palace and just staying at the cottage and watching the traffic (the narrow boats!!) go by. It was very clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Annie’s tea rooms just over the bridge are very good (especially for breakfast!) and there are some lovely walks."

    "The heating system is unreliable.Otherwise excellent.This was our 4th visit."
    Peter ‐ 17 Feb 2018
    "Lovely cottage. Well equipped. Very clean. Good location. The only minor improvements we can think of: Could do with a combi boiler so that hot water always on tap. Small sofa downstairs would be good."
