The Oxfordshire Cotswolds are located in the heart of England and is served by a comprehensive network of national and international, road, rail and air links. There are local transport services for getting about but this is a rural area, so the use of a car will make your journey's a little easier.
By Road - The Oxfordshire Cotswolds is easily accessed by the A34, M40 and A40. The Sat Nav postcode for The Chestnuts is OX184AB
By Bus - There are good services to and from Oxford and London at very good prices. However, being a small country village arriving by car is easiest. The village does have bus connections but they are infrequent. You can take a bus from Gloucester Green Bus Station in Oxford to Carterton and then get a taxi from there.
By Rail -The closest Train station is Shipton (6.4 Miles) but services to this station are infrequent. A much more frequent Train service runs from London to Oxford and Charlbury, both are about a 30 minute drive or Taxi away. The best place to hire a car from is Oxford.
