local attraction


Carefully considered. Beautifully honest. Thyme is a family story where a passion for the land, food and entertaining, merges with a love of nature, beauty and conservation.

By Bicester Village


We took time to make Thyme, with the story of the land imbued in every detail. A collection of restored historic farm buildings, we invite you to experience a real connection to the land, the seasons and to nature, and to enjoy this English country idyll that our family call home.


With an understated elegance, the shop combines Thyme’s own brand, Bertioli by Thyme, together with consciously sourced, artisanal products and one-off antique treasures. Resulting in a thoughtfully curated collection of fashion and homewares; with each item being led by our passion for the land, food and entertaining.


Nurturing peacefulness, stillness and beauty from within, the botanical spa is an idyllic haven of peace and tranquillity; a place for calm, mindfulness and meditation that provides respite from our busy lives. Guests are welcomed into the Greenhouse reception before being shown through to the Meadow Cottage for a bespoke menu of Thyme treatments in exclusive partnership with award-winning, natural British brand, Aurelia Probiotic Skincare. Committed to the scientific use of natural ingredients, treatments are tailored specifically for mind and body harnessing unique probiotic ingredients to protect, restore and balance the skin from within.

Cookery Class

The 'master a dish' classes take a classic dish and demystify it to add to your repertoire, learning a few of our chefs' secrets along the way. Two hours in the cookery school masters a dish or skill of your choice. This could include making fresh pasta such as Tortellini or Ravioli, or learn new skills such as butchering and using a full chicken or filleting a fish. A private class, enjoy undivided attention from one of our masterful chefs.
