Local information

  • Eynsham is an historic village lying 7 miles west of Oxford. In the middle ages there was a substantial abbey which was built around 1005 and became famous in the region. In 1538 the abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII and the remains stood for a century or so before eventually the stones from the abbey were used to build this property and other houses in the village.
  • Abbey Farmhouse lies in the heart of this popular and thriving village. It boasts good local amenities including primary and secondary schools, butcher, hardware store, small supermarket, public houses with restaurants and a weekly country market in the square. Further shopping, cultural and leisure facilities can be found in Oxford and
  • Witney, 6 miles to the west. Regular bus services operate to both Oxford and Witney.
