MANOR FARM is a 17th century National Trust farmhouse occupied for several generations by the family, who also farm the surrounding land. The village is just a few minutes’ drive away from the pretty market town of Lechlade and a few miles on is the Cotswolds gateway town of Burford. The River Thames is only a few minutes walk as is Kelmscott Manor, William Morris’ summer home with stunning gardens, which provided inspiration for his works, many of which are on display in the Manor. The village pub has a lovely relaxed ambience and serves excellent, locally sourced, food with local beers on tap. Just a short drive away is the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Buscot Park, owned by the National Trust.
