Aynho is an attractive vibrant village situated on the eastern side of the Cherwell valley with many far-reaching westerly views. Located on the borders of South Northamptonshire and North Oxfordshire, historically much of the village was owned by Aynhoe Park and was called the ''Apricot Village''.

There is a pub/restaurant (Cartwright Hotel) and another just outside the village (Great Western Arms), a parish church and sports/playing fields. The nearby villages of Deddington, Kings Sutton and Croughton have mini-supermarkets with the market towns of Banbury, Brackley and Bicester not far for more extensive requirements.

Aynho has good communication links with Junction 10 of the M40 (Ardley) about 6 miles giving access for London and Oxford, and M40 Junction 11 (Banbury) for the Midlands and the North. Train connections to London/Marylebone and Birmingham from King's Sutton, Bicester North and Banbury. Local primary schools include Charlton and Newbottle and Croughton with secondary schools at Banbury and Brackley.

The dining room has a large fireplace with bressumer beam and carved ceiling beams. The kitchen is a 16th Century extension.

The original spiral stone staircase leads to the first floor. The master bedroom has original elm floorboards, and a cruck tie beam (in the wall), and a rare fireplace. There is also a shower room and guest bedroom (again with the lower section of the cruck blade).

On the second floor there is a further bedroom with bathroom, with the fully exposed oak cruck (blades, purlins and ridge beams).

The front garden has an established apricot tree. The rear garden is fully enclosed by stone walls. It has a terrace area and raised sundecking, providing perfect places to relax and entertain. There is a very useful stone outbuilding with light and power that could easily be utilised as a home office.
