Ascott d'Oyley is a village in Oxfordshire, England.

Ascott d’Oyley with its sister village Ascott Earl together form the larger community of Ascott-under-Wychwood.

Ascott d’Oyley is recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book as having 14 households and a mill, under the lordship of Roger d'Oilly, and tenanted by Robert d’Oilly, whose family gives the village its name.[1]

An earthmound marks the remains of Ascott d’Oyley Castle.[2] dating from c.1130. The Manor house is listed grade II*.[3]

Today the village consists of stone-built houses and cottages grouped around the High Street and Mill Lane.

Ascott d'Oyley is served by Windrush Valley School and Ascott-under-Wychwood railway station.
