Great Tew

A picturesque village of thatched cottages. There are few signs to suggest the location of Loudon's Ferme Ornee and the property is not open to the public. But the tree belts which enclose the valley appear to have been Loudon's work and the ornamental  farm could - and should - be restored. Great Tew is one of the few privately owned villages in England. A few houses have been sold but its ancient character has been retained.
