Clanfield is an historic village located about 5 miles from Witney and Burford. In many ways it displays classic Cotswolds characteristics with many attractive stone buildings and houses throughout the village, some dating back to the 12th Century. There are two good pubs in the village, The Clanfield Plough and also The Tavern, both of which serve good beer/ale and also offer good (but different) food.
Surrounding the village are a selection of attractive villages and hamlets. Of particular note is the famous Kelmscott Manor famous for its association with William Morris the important designer of fabric. Slightly further afield are a host of National Trust gardens, while there are some excellent walks from the village directly.
For the more adventurous, Oxford is within 20 mins drive, while most of the Cotswolds' most famous landmarks such as Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water, Chipping Campden and Tetbury are all within half an hour drive.
