Adlestrop  is a small Cotswolds village (population 80) in the English county of Oxfordshire, close to the border with Gloucestershire. The village is located just off the road between Chipping Norton and Stow-on-the-Wold (look for the signs).
Adlestrop is one of the more attractive of Cotswolds villages, the more so on account that it is far less frequented by mass tourism than many other neighbouring towns and villages.
The novelist Jane Austen was a visitor (her uncle was the church rector) and is thought to have drawn inspiration from the village and its surroundings for Mansfield Park.
The nearest pub is The Fox Inn at Oddington, within easy walking distance across Adlestrop Park.
