Waddesdon is on the northern edge of the Chilterns between Aylesbury and Bicester, just over 20 minutes from the M40 and reasonably close to and convenient for the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. The 'dreaming spires' of the City of Oxford, Blenheim Palace and the famous town of Woodstock as well as the myriad of beautiful villages in the eastern Oxfordshire Cotswolds, such as Burford and Charlbury, are all no more than 45 minutes to an hour away. The village of Brill with its ancient windmill, set high on the Chilterns escarpment with beautiful, far reaching views over several counties is also nearby. Walkers will also love this area with miles of footpaths, winding their way over the surrounding gently rolling hills.

The village of Waddesdon is probably most famous for being the home of the Rothschild dynasty at Waddesdon Manor, one of the crown jewels of The National Trust. The Lion is perfect for people wishing to combine a visit to the manor with a stay in the area. The Lion also makes an excellent venue for wedding receptions and parties or as a pre wedding meeting venue and also for wedding guest accommodation.
