Bicester Village is a designer outlet shopping centre on the outskirts of Bicester, a town in Oxfordshire, England. It is owned by Value Retail plc. The centre opened in 1995.

Opened in 2020 by Jeremy Clarkson and Lisa Hogan, the Diddly Squat Farm Shop is a small barn full of good, no-nonsense things you'll like. We do not, for example, sell kale. We also have incredible food. Literally the best hamburgers in the world. And a full bar including Jeremy's own Hawkstone beer. Table seating is available overlooking THE BIG VIEW.


The Park offers activities for all ages – run wild on our inflatable obstacle course or hire paddleboards and kayaks.

Alternatively, sit and relax at the lakeside Cafe with a great range of coffee & cakes, snacks and delicious home-cooked food provided by the wonderful friends at The Wandering Kitchen. They also have an outside catering unit and a party tent too!

Chad Pool is a fishery where you can catch carp in an uncrowded, peaceful environment. It is located in Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire. A great way to spend the day with friends or family, being situated only a 7 minutes drive away from Bluewood Lodges.


Discover a rich tapestry of charming villages and the “real Cotswolds” on an expertly guided electric bike tour. Our powerful e-bikes flatten the hills so that you can enjoy getting up close and personal with some of Britain’s finest scenery and most iconic locations on quiet back roads; it is completely different from just seeing it through the windshield of a van or car and a remarkable, eco-friendly day out that you will remember forever.

Sitting in the heart of the Cotswolds, Cotswold Farm Park has a long-standing reputation for a fun-filled day out. Visitors of all ages can interact closely with the animals and learn about farming, past and present. As the home of rare breed conservation, visitors can meet over 50 flocks and herds of farm animals, including Gloucestershire Old Spot Pigs and Highland cattle.
