The Cosener’s House occupies a picturesque Thames-side position in the grounds of the medieval Abbey of Abingdon, 8 miles from Oxford.
It takes its name from the Cuisinier or Kitchener (the official responsible for providing food for the Abbey). The older part of the present building is the central portion which dates from the mid-eighteenth century.
These days the House is a wonderful retreat to which Humphrey and his staff invite you to stay overnight in one of the comfortable rooms or make use of the meeting rooms and catering facility. There are 50 bedrooms, five meeting rooms and a light and airy modern dining room with views of the gardens and the Thames.
