IT HAS been a tough year for companies up and down the country, including these Oxfordshire businesses.

With the coronavirus pandemic throwing businesses into turmoil it's no surprise that so many doors are being sadly shut for good. 

However this leaves the way for new and emerging companies to get onto our highstreets and into our villages - with the hopes of injecting a new lease of life into otherwise empty properties. 

Here are some Oxfordshire businesses on the market right now: 

Feathers Hotel, Woodstock


Oxford Mail:

If you're a small hotelier or you've got big plans to run your dream hotel then look no further. 

This 21-bedroom hotel in Woodstock is formed within a series of attractive
Georgian houses converted many years ago to its current use. 

Beautifully presented throughout the business is described as 'thriving all-round' with a high tariff room trade and strong customer base for the excellent bar and restaurant. 

Attracting both Woodstock residents and visitors from far and wide, this hotel could be a fantastic investment especially with the projected increase in Brits travelling in the UK after lockdown.
