Where is it?
The village of Adderbury is a typical, Oxfordshire village ie friendly, picturesque, quaint, with lots going on and all the necessary amenities. We have four pubs to chose from, our favourite is The Bell Inn - a proper traditional English pub serving award winning ales! Our village shop is also an award winner and sells everything you could need from the Sunday papers and tasty bacon and sausages for your full English breakfast to washing powder and ice creams. There are beautiful circular walks right from the village.
Adderbury is close to so many fantastic places. A 20 minute drive (bus from Adderbury or train from nearby Banbury or Kings Sutton) takes you to Oxford with the amazing university buildings, great shopping and restaurants. The open top bus tour is a must. You can also reach Blenheim Palace and the gorgeous village of Woodstock in less than half an hour. We're in the outskirts of the Cotswolds with its wonderful scenery, walks and honey coloured ironstone villages. Other highlights of this area are Hook Norton, Bourton on the Water and the tea-shops of Burford. We've maps and guidebooks to help you.
The nearest town is Banbury (3 miles) which has everything you could need on a day to day basis including a choice of supermarkets and other shops. The train station has direct links to London (in 60 to 90 minutes) and to Birmingham (60 minutes). In fact Banbury is ideally placed for trains to Scotland and the South West if you feel inclined to take a trip further afield, it also has excellent road links being close to the M40 motorway.
London is easy to get to by road or rail for theatre, museums, galleries, restaurants, shopping, everything you could wish for if you're so inclined!
