Clanfield is an attractive village, surrounded by pretty Oxfordshire countryside. A stream runs through the village beside the road, spanned in places by stone bridges. A path beside the stream passes under weeping willow trees as it links the two small village greens. Clanfield is home to The Double Red Duke, a picturesque, 16th-century hotel and pub which is stylish yet informal with its cosy log fires, good food using local produce, and a garden with terrace for al fresco dining.
The ancient market town of Bampton lies just south of the Cotswolds. Until about 1850, it stood in the centre of a large area of common land, hence its previous name of ‘Bampton in the Bush’. Bampton is sometimes described as a town, because it used to be a market town until the 19th century. It is now officially designated a village but has both Town and Village Halls.
There are a number of state and private schools in the area, most notably; St Hugh’s and Pinewood to name just two.
Road communications are fantastic to the A40 which in turn provides access the M40 to London, and the M5 to the west.
