Arguably one of the most beloved and beautiful villages in the Cotswolds, Kingham is unspoilt and unpretentious, an idyllic destination for a countryside escape. With stone and thatched cottages nestled upon the village green and a Grade II listed church with a striking Gothic tower, Kingham is imbued with postcard perfect quality. Just southwest of Chipping Norton, the village lies within minutes from all the Cotswolds hotspots including Soho Farmhouse, Daylesford Organic farm, the Grade I listed Chastleton House a Jacobean country house owned by the National Trust, and the Cotswolds Wildlife Park and Gardens.
How to get to Kingham
The nearest station is in Kingham which is served by Cotswolds Line trains between London Paddington, Oxford, Worcester and Hereford.
The Firs is a twenty minute walk, or a five minute taxi ride, from Kingham Station. Kingham is reachable from London Paddington in just under an hour and a half.
Kingham is just over a couple of hours drive from London. Detailed directions are provided upon booking. A car is a good idea to explore the local area, however, as Kingham is a village with such good amenities, a car is not totally necessary for a weekend away. There are two wonderful pubs, a little village shop and post office and Daylesford Organic farm shop, restaurant and spa are a fifteen minute walk away!
The local taxi service, Excelsior from Chipping Norton, are also very good.
