Sarsden is a village within the civil parish of Churchill and Sarsden and is located 3 miles (4.8 km) south of Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.

Sarsden House is a country house, rebuilt in 1689 after it was damaged by fire.[2] In 1795 Humphry Repton landscaped the park, adding a serpentine lake and a Doric temple.[3] In about 1825 Repton's son, the architect G.S. Repton, remodelled the house for James Langston.[2]

The Church of England parish church of Saint James was rebuilt in 1760.[2] G.S. Repton added a cruciform extension to the east in 1823.[2] In 1896 the architect Walter Mills of Banbury remodelled the north transept and added the bellcote.[2]

Sarsgrove House, or the Dower House, is 1.5 miles (2.4 km) northeast of Sarsden.[4] G.S. Repton remodelled it as a large cottage orné in 1825.[4]
