Shenington village is dominated by the village green, one of the last remaining traditional greens in Oxfordshire. Holy Trinity Church on the edge of the green dates from the first quarter of the 12th century with surviving Norman arch framing organ pipes. The village is made up predominantly of period stone cottages together with a more limited number of modern dwellings. Within the village there is The Bell Public House and a Primary School, both of which have an excellent reputation. There is a village shop in nearby Tysoe and more comprehensive range of facilities in the nearby market town of Banbury.
There are convenient transportation links via Banbury Train Station and to Junction 11 of the M40. The approximate time to London via road is 1.5hrs.

Enclosed by fencing, the mature gardens are principally laid to lawn with an array of plants. There is adequate parking for two vehicle to the front of the cottage and a drive to the side.
