Out and About

Paxford is a pretty village set in the North Cotswolds and makes an ideal base from which to explore the Cotswolds National Park.

The Church has always been the focal point of the village and its recent extensive restoration and conversion to luxurious holiday accommodation has only enhanced its beauty.

The Cotswolds covers some 787 square miles and is the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ANOB) in Britain. The medieval town of Chipping Campden is just 4 miles away, and other popular Cotswolds towns of Morton-in-Marsh and Shipston-on-Stour are similar distances.


There are many great pubs and restaurants in the area, the award-winning Ebrington Arms is within walking distance and there are many others within a few minutes drive. Sadly our own local, the Churchill Arms was damaged in a fire and will be closed for some time. To walk off the calories, pull on your walking boots and enjoy one of the many countryside walks. Details of two popular circular walking routes can be found here.

There are numerous picturesque villages to explore including: Upper Slaughter, Lower Slaughter, Snowshill and Kingham to name but a few.

For some retail therapy there is an abundance of popular market towns to explore such as: Chipping Campden, Moreton-In-Marsh, Stow-On-The-Wold and beautiful Broadway. Bourton-on-the-Water (fondly known as the Venice of the Cotswolds) is also very popular.

For those who love beautiful gardens; The world-famous Hidcote Garden is only 4 miles away, while Batsford Arboretum, Sezincote House and Gardens, Bourton House and Garden and Blenheim Palace and Gardens, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, are all just a short drive from the property.

If you are here in the summer months, why not treat yourself to an evening at the Longborough Opera. The Chipping Norton Theatre put on some fabulous plays and shows throughout the year.

More details of where to visit, places to eat, shopping destinations and local walks and cycle rides are included in the information folder at the Church.
