I live in a detached house with a garden in walking distance of the centre of the small town of Chipping Norton.

About the local area


Chipping Norton is a small, town in the northern part of the well-known area called the Cotswolds. The town has a range of shops, restaurants and pubs. There is a leisure centre and a swimming pool as well as a small theatre and cinema. Chipping Norton is an ideal base to explore the Cotswolds.
There are pretty towns and villages to visit amidst some of the most the beautiful countryside in England. In particular, it is worth visiting Bourton on the Water, Broadway, Stow on the Wold and Chipping Campden. Blenheim Palace, which is a world heritage site is close by and worth visiting to see the 18th century palace and gardens. It was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Britain’s prime minister in the Second World war.
The city of Oxford is about 40 minutes away by car or bus and 20 minutes by train. Oxford is famous for its ancient university and its beautiful architecture. There are museums, art galleries, cinemas and theatres as well as good restaurants. It is nice to walk by the river or to hire a boat in the summer time.
