The Haven is a picturesque detached stone and red brick cottage set within a beautiful and secluded walled garden. The property dates back to the 1770s but was extensively renovated ten years ago, leaving it feeling light and airy whilst retaining its period charm.
Byfield is a thriving village on the borders of Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and Oxfordshire. It has good local facilities including a village shop, garage, post office, primary school and two pubs. The nearby market towns of Banbury and Daventry provide a wider variety of amenities.
