St Nicholas’ Church in Tackley

The Village

Tackley is a friendly picturesque village situated halfway between Oxford and Banbury, just off the A4260 (M40 junctions 9 [south] or 11 [north]), an ideal centre for touring, walking, riding or an overnight business stay.

There is a mainline railway station with trains to Oxford, London, Banbury, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Birmingham, a minute’s walk from our door. The local bus runs regularly to both Oxford and Banbury and the bus stop is five minutes’ walk. There is a regular service to London every 20 minutes from Oxford.

The Gardiner Arms is the village pub and serves excellent food. Woodstock is nearby and is an absolute Mecca of pubs and restaurants.

Tackley Village Shop – a not-for-profit community shop, staffed by volunteers – is five minutes’ walk away and sells a great range of locally-sourced products in addition to all the essentials you’d expect.
