Welcome to Leafield
Right on the edge of the Cotswolds, Leafield is only 18 miles north-west of Oxford, and five miles from Chalbury railway station. With 330 households, and a total population of just over 800, Leafield is both remote, up on the windy highground between Witney and Charlbury; and connected, with easy access to both Oxford and London.

The tall spire of St Michael and All Angels’ Church, designed in 1859 by Sir George Gilbert Scott, is a distinctive feature on the horizon for many miles around.
