Visit Cottisford and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Cottisford, Oxfordshire. The village of Cottisford, mentioned in the Domeday Book of 1086, lies on the banks of the Crowell stream. There used to be a ford here which explains the derivation of the name. It is probably best known as the hamlet in which the English novelist and poet Flora Jane Thompson (1876 - 1947) was born and educated. She was famous for “Lark Rise to Candleford”, a semi-autobiographical trilogy about the English countryside.
It has a stone church that was built in the 13th Century. The village has two houses of considerable interest. One is Manor Farm, which probably dates from the 14th century and Cottisford House. The population has grown from 15 in 1306 to around 200 today.
