Welcome to Grammar School Cottage


Charlbury is a small but lively and vibrant market town yet it is only an hour from London and just 15 minutes’ drive from Soho Farmhouse. The town is full of historic 17th- and 18th-century buildings, has great pubs, independent shops, a local history museum and is in a beautiful setting on the meandering River Evenlode, with fabulous walks in every direction, including around the Charlbury Circular Route and along The Oxfordshire Way and The Cotswold Way. Clarkson's Farm and Diddly Squat Farm Shop are a short walk away across the other side of the Evenlode Valley.
