Good Lunch in lovely setting

Very good lunch at The Prince of Wales Pub, Iffley. Worth waiting 4 months for! Excellent outdoor seating made for a very safe experience. Thank you to the landlords for keeping going during this very difficult time

Idyllic peaceful area
Jan 2020
Only five minutes drive from the ring road and from the main Iffley road very frequent buses drop you only five minutes walk from the start of the village.Two hotels and two village pubs and a casual walk takes you to the local church which is open and well worth a visit.Around the corner and down a slight hill you arrive at Iffley river which also has a pub open from Fridays to Sundays. Ducks and Geese feeding from walkers and iIf inclined it is forty minutes along the tow path to Oxford centre.A very good place to relax.

Picture postcard village

Delightful olde world village approx 2 miles from Oxford City Centre. Tree lined streets and many old buildings make up the strolling walk through the village. The old school house, the church, the Malt house are all worth a visit.

St Mary's church is worth visiting

Iffley is a quiet and pretty village close to Oxford and is worth visiting because of the quality of the carvings, Luckily it is open too to visit the interior.

Countryside in the middle of Oxford

Not an easy place to find, but well worth the effort. A picture box setting on the Thames, full of wildlife and not too many people, just locals.

Iffley is a quaint and pretty village on the Oxford Canal, a fantastic place to take a walk, the houses and cottages are well kept with lovely gardens. A true English village.

pretty village suburb of Oxford
Jun 2018 • Couples
Iffley can be reached along the towpath on a cycle from Oxford, in a car, or on the bus, if you get off on the Iffley Road. The village has a lot of old houses and buildings, some with thatched roofs. There is a lovely old manor house. The church of St Mary the Virgin is worth the visit alone, for its lovely old Norman stonework and stained glass windows. The lock on the River Thames is beautiful and there are good walks in either direction along its banks. The village is also notable for its pubs: The Prince Of Wales in the village and the Isis Farmhouse across the Lock.

Lovely for a stroll along the canal
Jun 2018 • Family
Iffley is a small village where the locks are for the canal. You can cross the bridge and stroll along the banks of the canal. If you feel like refreshments there is a pub where I got a most welcome pot of tea as it was a warm day.

St Mary Church, Iffley
Mar 2018
There should be an existing entry for this spectacular Romanesque church. I lived in Oxford on two separate occasions while conducting academic research. Fortunately, student of mine who had been a Rhodes scholar at Oxford told me of this remarkable church. It is open most days. The deadly carved dog tooth arches alone would justify a trip. There is a special feature of this church that is not too be missed. Virtually all churches of this age do not display sharp relief in their stone carvings. This church has a modest exception. It is the door off to the right hand side of the church as you face the main entrance at the front. Because a wooden shed had been built up against this doorway until the late 19th century the stone carving around this door was protected from the elements for most of its life. The result is that these carvings are sharper than any one would normally see at most churches.
Another feature of this church is the massive yew tree in the church yard. Yew trees were used to fashion the famous English long bow. Because of the strategic nature of this bow, it was ordered that yew trees be planted in many villages. This splendid very old tree dates way back to that era and now stands to provide only shade and beauty.
