We would like to welcome you to Orchard House, our family home, situated in the delightful village of
Steventon. Here we can offer you a comfortable, relaxing, picturesque location, overlooking sheep,
geese, ducks, chickens and village copse.  With parking for several cars.

Ours is an ideal location for business people.  Being close to the M40, M4 and A34, we are within easy
reach of many of the local business and science parks, including Milton Park, Harwell & Rutherford
Laboratories, and the Abingdon Business parks.  Frequent fast trains to London and Bristol are only
fine minutes away.

With Oxford just twelve miles to the north, we provide a good base from which to explore the ‘Dreaming
Spires’, as well as the Cotswolds to the north-west and the Ridgeway path on the Downs to the south of
the village.

We offer a 2 single and 1 double rooms,  two overlooking a smallholding, and one single overlooking the
village copse.  All are warm and comfortable and have a colour television and DVD player, and free Wi-Fi.
Orchard House is a non-smoking establishment,  
however guests are welcome to smoke in the garden.

Bed and Breakfast Rates  (depend of length of stay)

Single - £35 to £45     
Double - £55 to £65      (single occupancy £40-£45)
Per room per night.  

These rates are aimed at business people and include a help
yourself breakfast (cereal, toast, tea/coffee etc.) so they can get
off to an early start in their own time.   
Although there are several places to eat in the village, we also
allow use of the microwave so that eating out is not a necessity.
The village of Steventon dates from medieval times, with several buildings still remaining from the 14th
and 15th centuries. In the 14th century, the village was known for its cloth industry, producing a third of
the district’s output of finishing trade.    The Ginge Brook and other streams were used to wash the
fleeces which were then laid out on the village green to dry.
Whether you are visiting the local area, to explore the history that surrounds us, or you need a quiet and
relaxing place to stay while here on business, Orchard House can provide you with the welcoming
atmosphere that will make you feel at home.
The most striking feature of the village is
the mile-long Causeway that runs through
the heart of the village. Its origins are still a
mystery, but it is thought to have beenfor
a raised flood path, used by monks to
reach Steventon Church from Milton, or
even the Abbey at Abingdon.

Steventon was the railway stop for Oxford
in Brunel’s time and still has a number of
public houses, some  offering good food and
refreshments to visitors, also an Indian
Restaurant. We can recommend these to
you during your stay.
