About the neighbourhood
Located in between the villages of Great Tew (home of Soho Farmhouse), South Newington, Wiggington and Swerford. There are a host of picturesque villages wherever you drive with a wide range of country pubs serving food as well as local beers. The Cotswolds and all its attractions are in easy reach with the popular villages of Bourton on the Water, Stow on the Wold a short drive away. The stunning Blenheim Palace in Woodstock is only 15 minutes away. There are also a number of National Trust properties like the atmospheric Chastleton House, gardens and Batsford arboretum within a short drive. Nearby are the dreaming spires of Oxford City and Shakespear's Stratford Upon Avon.
Getting around
As a countryside location with extremely limited public transport the best way to get about is unfortunately by car. However, there are bus routes from nearby Chipping Norton or Banbury and train stations in Banbury and Charlbury. The nearest bus stop is from outside The Duck On The Pond pub in South Newington 1 mile away. There are a number of local taxis services available too.
