The Holt Hotel
The Holt Hotel at Hopcroft’s Holt is a traditional coaching inn on the Oxford to Banbury Road, just a mile from the centre of Steeple Aston. Dating back to the 15th century, it started with just six bedrooms, but has been extended and refurbished over the years and now has 86 ensuite bedrooms.
A notorious highwayman, Claude Du Vall, frequented the inn, and his ghost is said to still haunt the hotel today. The hotel has conference facilities for up to 160 delegates and banqueting for up to 260 guests. It also has a licence to conduct civil weddings, so these days you’ll find businessmen and wedding guests staying here mixing with visitors from the village and the local area.
There is also the Claude Du Vall Restaurant which features an a la carte menu on Friday and Saturday evenings and a Sunday carvery. The relaxed Highwayman Bar serves an extensive bar menu featuring fresh locally sourced produce, and local beer; the bar also has a pool table.

Middle Aston House
Middle Aston House has a long uninterrupted history of owners dating back nearly 1000 years to the Domesday Book. Although much of the current house is Victorian and most of the original Medieval manor house is buried under the front lawns, there remains plenty of evidence of the Tudor manorial home now incorporated into the main building.
Situated between the villages of Middle Aston and Steeple Aston, the house and 20 acres of gardens, mature woodland and lake provide a welcome relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of 21st Century daily life. Middle Aston House is now an independently and privately owned meeting, functions, and wedding venue open to both corporate and leisure guests throughout the year.
They are open for Bed and Breakfast seven days a week. There’s free parking and complimentary wi-fi.
