The Banbury / Shutford area
Shutford was once famous for its production of Plush which is still on the seat covers in the house of Lords! The cottage names in the village reflect what was once their function. Shutford was and is a tiny village with a good pub, the George and Dragon which serves foods and delivers to the house if required. There are some great walks about and more pubs that serve great food nearby. If you enjoy cycling, running, walking etc this is a great place to stay.
