Welcome to Visitors

Lower Heyford and Caulcott have been described as “two hidden secrets of the Oxfordshire Wolds“. They are wonderfully located north of Oxford, with all the cultural and historical significance this has to offer.

They have tremendous access to some of the finest countryside – with great views, lush pasture, cattle, sheep, swans, horses, all year round walking trails, a rich history themselves, and one of the finest examples of Capability Brown landscaping in private ownership – Rousham Hall and Park – is right on our doorstep.

They are close to the former hunting grounds and magnificent palace at Blenheim. The Cotswolds are a short drive away as are the market towns of Chipping Norton, Stow-on-the-Wold and Banbury.

Lower Heyford and Caulcott have so much to offer, beauty and peace, and yet are more relaxing (and convenient) than their more Westerly counterparts. Of course, we’re also just 15 minutes from the shopping joys of Bicester Village too!

This is our village website – intended for parishioners and visitors alike. Navigate your way around with the contents menu on the left and the search box at the top. We hope that you will find it useful. If there’s something you expected and couldn’t find – PLEASE let us know so we can add it in the future.
