It is less than a mile to the local pub. Laughton's Retreat is an excellent base for touring the Cotswolds, with popular locations and attractions such as Woodstock, Blenheim Palace, Burford and Oxford all within easy driving distance.
Stonesfield is a small workign village located about 4 miles to the north of Woodstock and about 8 miles from Oxford. There is a good size shops selling all the basic goods, a good local pub The White Horse plus a hairdresser!! Stonefield as the name suggests, was once known for its stone and today there is still the Stonesfield Slate, a locally mined stone. The Oxfordshire Way, passes through the village and is very close to the farm, and is well worth a good walk - it takes you through some stunning countryside. Adjacent to the farmhouse is a small farm shop and highly regarded local butcher.
Nearby is the famous Woodstock which has a very good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. Blenheim Palace, of course, is the most famous landmark and attraction in the region and is certainly worth a visit. Similarly, but just a little bit further on is Oxford, famous for its colleges and 'dreaming spires'.
This is a great location for either touring the region or simply relaxing in a rural location with good facilities in walking distance.
