Its undoubted character, countryside walks, bridleways and ease of access to both the amenities of Faringdon town and for the A420 (to either Oxford or Swindon) are two reasons why this is such a popular village.

The small 12th century church of St Giles stands on the site of an earlier Saxon church, also located in the village is the Great Coxwell Tithe Barn.
