2 Stars Self Assessed Hotel
The Oxford Arms is located just off the centre of Kington in a quite residential street. We have no sky tv or juke box so are very much a community pub where talk is the main theme of the evening. We offer a warm friendly welcome to all who come in and whether you want a quiet stay on your own or join to in the conversation with our locals you will always be able to find a spot to suit you. There are shops in the main street to look through, a lovely recreation ground and walks aplenty.
