SITUATION Enstone is one of the largest civil parishes in Oxfordshire and formed with the villages of Church Enstone and Neat Enstone combined to be known as Enstone with hamlets of Chalford, Cleveley, Fulwell, Gagingwell, Lidstone, and Radford. Church Enstone is a peaceful and attractive Oxfordshire village on the edge of the Cotswolds. The village is home to a traditional country pub, the Crown Inn, and has a variety of beautiful period buildings including the Church of St. Kenelm's which dates back to the 9th century. Located on the outskirts of the village is the Grade II listed 18th century country house and grounds of Heythrop Park with its competition level golf course, spa, gym and swimming pool. The well regarded Soho Farmhouse in Great Tew is only a 4.5 miles (10 minute) drive from the village and within a 20 minute drive to Daylesford Organic Farm Shop. The bordering village of Enstone has a Village Store, Primary and Nursery School and a garage/petrol station together with a regular bus service to Oxford and Chipping Norton.
