Heythrop is a pretty, sought after village situated in North West Oxfordshire near the market town of Chipping Norton and on the edge of the Cotswolds. With origins dating to Norman times, it took its current form in the early 19th century when the wealthy industrialist Albert Brassey built a 'model village' consisting of estate cottages to compliment Heythrop Park.
Chipping Norton provides for everyday requirements. Banbury and Oxford are also within easy reach for more extensive requirements.
Communication is good with mainline rail stations at Charlbury, (London/Paddington about 72 minutes) and Banbury, (London/ Marylebone about 55 minutes) and M40 (J8) Oxford and (J11) at Banbury.
Primary schools can be found at Great Tew and Chipping Norton, secondary education at Chipping Norton. Local independent schools include: Kitebrook (Moreton-in-Marsh), Tudor Hall, (Bloxham), Bloxham School as well as excellent schools in Oxford.
Local leisure activities in the area include the Golf and Health Club at Heythrop Park; golf at Chipping Norton and Tadmarton Heath; horse racing at Cheltenham; theatre at Chipping Norton and Oxford.

Approached from the village road lined with lime trees, there is a gravel driveway on the left hand side of the cottage that provides parking for several cars. This leads to the timber garage. Recently erected, there is a large loft above which is accessed from an external staircase. The garden lies to the rear of the house and is enclosed by stone walls, with wonderful views of and gated access to the church. Mainly laid to lawn, with mature herbaceous borders, the garden is very private. Immediately adjacent to the rear of the house and accessed form the dining area is a stone terrace. A gravel pathway extends around the side of the house to the front.
