A charming Grade II listed property beautifully situated in this most sought-after village.

Approached via a long private driveway, surrounded by glorious mature gardens and rolling countryside, the property sits well in its magical setting on the edge of this most sought-after village. The thatched house, built of local ironstone has retained its period features including some flag stone floors, inglenook fireplaces and stone mullion windows. There are a number of well-proportioned rooms, all with views over the surrounding gardens and grounds. The house, Grade II Listed, is much loved and enjoyed although would benefit from some updating and has the potential to extend, for which planning permission is granted by West Oxfordshire District Council ref 22/00758/LBC. The layout can be seen from the floor and site plans.

This property has 2.27 acres of land.


The gardens are a particular feature, in the traditional English cottage style with lovely lawns, hedges and herbaceous borders. There is a pretty stream running down the eastern boundary. To left of the drive is a contemporary Studio/barn with large reception/entertaining space, a kitchen, shower room and mezzanine sleeping area. To the rear of the house is a detached period cottage, with two/three bedrooms and its own delightful gardens. Also Grade II Listed and beautifully presented, the cottage has well-proportioned rooms and an inglenook fireplace in the sitting room.


Little Tew is one of the most sought-after villages in the very pretty rolling, mature landscape of North Oxfordshire, the ‘gateway’ to the Cotswolds. The village has its own church but its larger neighbour, Great Tew, has the popular café Quince and Clover, the Falkland Arms together with a busy community centre - Tew Centre - which is also home to the Great and Little Tew Cricket Club. Great Tew Primary School is extremely popular and exceptional; the area is renowned for schools, with Kitebrook, Tudor Hall, Bloxham and Winchester House all being popular local choices. The Oxford and Abingdon schools are within reach. The nearest railway station is Charlbury, with Bicester, Banbury and Oxford Parkway stations being a little further away but providing faster journeys to London. Soho Farmhouse members club at Great Tew has added to the appeal of the area, complementing the near-by Daylesford Organic Farm Shop.
