Local information

  • Taynton is perhaps one of the most unspoilt and sought after of the Cotswold villages on the Oxfordshire/Gloucestershire borders. Beautifully situated, it nestles in the Windrush Valley amongst rolling Cotswold countryside. The village is made up almost entirely of Cotswold stone houses and cottages, with the pretty church dating from the 15th century. It lies within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The historic market town of Burford, only 2 miles away, provides most daily shopping requirements, whilst Cheltenham and Oxford are the main cultural centres for the area. There are good road connections along the A40 and M40 to London and the mainline railway station at Charlbury (9 miles) provides services to London Paddington.

Additional information

  • Planning permission (APP/D3125/D17/3178218) was granted on 5 September 2017 to rebuild the garden room with a raised pitch and re-organising the internal layout. Further information is available from the agent or West Oxfordshire District website.
