Asthal, or Asthall, is a village and civil parish in the West Oxfordshire district of Oxfordshire, next to the historic town of Burford. The village is on the River Windrush in the Windrush Valley. There is a former Roman settlement on Akeman Street, which once linked Cirencester with St Albans. The village church of St. Nicholas dates back to the 12th century and contains a rare medieval stone altar and an early Norman font. Notable historic residents of Asthall include the Mitford family, known for their six dynamic daughters, four of which wrote best-selling books. The Elizabethan Asthall Manor that was their home overlooks the churchyard. Nancy Mitford penned much of ‘Love in a Cold Climate’ in the manor house. She is buried in the churchyard at nearby Swinbrook. The picturesque town of Burford is 3 miles away. It is popular for its shopping and antiques, and for the wide variety of restaurants, pubs and teashops on offer. Most of the original old inns still exist, with Tudor buildings including the Tolsey Museum in the toll house on the High Street. Less than one mile away from Asthall is the Minster Lovell Hall and Dovecote, former home of Richard III’s henchman, Lord Lovell.
