The village lies about four miles north east of the Cotswold market town of Moreton-in-the-Marsh in Gloucestershire. Cotswold stone is much in evidence in the construction of the houses. Little Wolford is a mile away very close to the main Stratford to Oxford road. Part of Weston Park is within the parish, see Long Compton.
