Description: The Shaven CrownWith a history dating back to the 14th century, The Shaven Crown is set in a spectacular medieval hostelry, founded by the monks of Bruern Abbey to house pilgrims and as a hospice for the poor.

Standing opposite the church and the village green, the hotel is within easy reach of Blenheim Palace and the historic towns of Burford, Witney, Cheltenham and Oxford.
