The well-regarded and picturesque village of Nuneham Courtenay is one of the best known and most important planned estate villages in the country. In the 1760's the old village and church were demolished to make way for a classical landscape. The new village included a forge, inn, curate's house and semi-detached cottages of uniform design in chequer brick, neatly arranged on either side of the Oxford Road. In 1948 the 2nd Viscount Harcourt sold the estate to the University of Oxford and all its properties remained in single ownership until 1990.

Nuneham Courtnenay lies some 5 miles to the south of the University City of Oxford, which offers an excellent range of shopping, recreational and cultural amenities. There is a deli and shop in the village and a primary school in the neighbouring village of Marsh Baldon.
