Shenington is situated to the west of Banbury and faces the village of Alkerton across quite a deep valley. The village is dominated by a beautiful Green surrounded by dark golden stone houses, and the Bell Inn which dates back to 1700. The Church on the edge of the Green has a fine early Tudor tower. The village is made up predominantly of period stone cottages built in the local Hornton stone, together with a more limited number of modern dwellings. Within the village there is a primary school which enjoys an excellent reputation and Doctor's surgery. A more comprehensive range of facilities can be found in the nearby market town of Banbury where there is also junction 11 of the M40 motorway, and a mainline railway station to London Marylebone.

To one side there is a characterful stone wall and to the other an established hedge giving a good degree of privacy.

The rear garden is south facing and lawned with perennial flower and shrub borders, a beech hedge and a vegetable plot to the side. Cedar garden shed and corrugated iron store.
