Access Statement for Shepherds Hall Guest House,
Freeland, Oxfordshire


Formerly a very busy Country Inn, we have scaled our operations down and are now trading as a Guest House offering high quality Bed and Breakfast accommodation. We also cater for private functions such as Wedding Receptions, Christenings, Wakes, Business Meetings, etc.


• We are situated about 18 miles north west of Oxford, on the A4095 halfway between Woodstock and Witney - 4 1/2 miles each - just outside the village of Long Hanborough. Blenheim Palace, home of the Duke of Marlborough, is set in magnificent grounds about ten minutes drive away and is the venue for a wide variety of events throughout the Spring and Summer. For details, contact the Woodstock Tourist Board Office.
• There are local, if infrequent, busses to Witney and Oxford and a railway station at Long Hanborough but by far the best way to reach us by car.
• Our website www.shepherdshall.co.uk provides pictures of our accommodation and further information about the services we provide.
• You can contact us by telephone or fax. Please see the contact information section of this document for full details.

Arrival & Car Parking Facilities

• There is a substantial car park to the rear of the property, access to which is directly off the A4095, clearly signed and illuminated at night.
• There is a terraced area at the front of the car park from which a small slope leads to the front of the building where the main entrance is situated.
• This area is also illuminated at night.

Main Entrance, Reception & Ticketing Area

• A porch at the front of the building, clearly signed, gives access to the original Lounge Bar, which is where you will be asked to sign in and given the keys to your room. Please ring the doorbell to gain admittance.

Bedrooms & Sleeping Areas

• We have five letting bedrooms in total - two in the main building and three in the adjacent annex. All rooms are on the first floor and, therefore, not suitable for wheelchair access. All rooms are fully en-suite and include television, tea and coffee making facilities, direct dial telephones and clock radios, hair dryers and free mineral water. All rooms fully carpeted throughout.
• Breakfast is served direct to your room in the morning. Full details will be explained and your orders taken when you arrive.
• Bedrooms - Main Building.
• There are two bedrooms in the main building numbered 6 &7. One is a twin-bedded room, the other contains a double and a single bed so it can be let as either a twin-bedded, double-bedded or family room.
• Both rooms have central heating and electric fan heaters. Both en-suite bathrooms are equipped with bath, toilet, wash basin, heated towel rail and electric shaver socket.
• Access to these rooms is direct from the car park via an external staircase.
• Bedrooms - Annex.
• Access is by turning left from the main porch and after about twenty paces, you will come to a door clearly marked Annex Rooms 1, 2, 3. The door opens onto a staircase at the top of which is a landing leading to the rooms. Room 1 is a double-bedded, Room 2 is a single room and Room 3 is twin-bedded.

• All the rooms are fully en-suite but equipped with shower rather than a bath; plus toilet and washbasin. Facilities and equipment are similar to those in rooms 6 & 7 except that Room 2 does not have central heating. It does, however, have a fan heater and heated towel rail and there is a radiator on the landing opposite the door.

Additional Information

• Dogs are welcome by arrangement
• We are a non-smoking establishment - smoking facilities are available in the car park at the rear or on the terrace in front.
• Smoke alarms are fitted on the landing to Rooms 1, 2 & 3 and also by the internal entrance to Rooms 6 & 7. Fire extinguishers are similarly deployed.
• We would be happy to store any medication in our main fridge. This could be then taken up to your room with your breakfast tray.
