Kingham is a peaceful and secluded village, voted in 2006 as Country Life's
'England's Favourite Village', yet it has a main line train service to London Paddington - only 90 minutes away. The station is about a mile from the village but with a regular connecting bus service.
Kingham is located in the broad Evenlode valley with wide open village greens at its northern end bordered by elegant cottages, many dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. There is a village shop, a church and two pubs.
The village is an excellent centre for walking and cycling. Nearby attractions include Churchill and Sarsden Heritage Centre and Daylesford Organic.
Kingham is also a foodie destination, with its two highly-rated pubs, the Kingham Plough and The Wild Rabbit, and the annual Big Feastival at Blur bassist Alex James’ local farm.
