St Nicholas' Church in Tackley.

The Village

Tackley is a friendly, picturesque village situated half way between Oxford and Banbury, just off the A4260 (access from M40 junctions 9 northbound or 11 southbound), 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. From Oxford there are regular services to London and its airports.

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

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.
