Motoring Fun

Treat Dad to a Father’s Day spent at Cogges. From 10am to 4pm on 17th June, his engineering and motoring passion can be indulged with a whole host of motors, motorbikes and machines. Boasting ale and music, vintage and classic vehicles, working steam engines and farm machinery, he won’t tire of all this day can offer. Usual farm entry applies. Cogges is only a half hour drive from our hotel.


Take to the Sky

If your dad loves all things aero, then he can head to Enstone Flying Club. He’ll only be in the car for 35 minutes, and then he can reach dizzying heights. With flying lessons as well as flying experiences on offer, you will find that in all of their flying experience flights you get to actually fly the plane for the majority of the flight! Pre-booking is essential, prices start at £123.


Railway Enthusiasm

15 minutes away by car, Didcot Railway Centre is the go-to destination for any rail enthusiasts this Father’s Day. To honour fatherhood, steam train rides on the Main Demonstration Line will be held so Dad can enjoy the locomotives in all their glory. Why not make the day last forever by buying Dad an accompanying membership?
