Angelic Studio - Things To Do in Northamptonshire

Angelic's appeal is of course its remote and beautiful countryside location, however although the studio and house are surrounded by acres upon acres of rural land, there is still plenty to do if you take some time out from the session. There's a bagful of countryside activities all nearby, such as Tank Driving and Golf, and the towns of Banbury, Oxford and Milton Keynes are all roughly half an hour's drive away. 

Below is a selection of local pubs in the neighbouring villages to Angelic. There are of course plenty more bars and pubs to explore in Banbury, Milton Keynes and Oxford; the latter is also rich in historic University haunts. We've also listed some local activities to be enjoyed...
