Sarsden is a village and civil parish about 3 miles (4.8 km) south of Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire. Since 2012 it has been part of the Churchill and Sarsden joint parish council area, sharing a parish council with the adjacent civil parish of Churchill.[2]

Sarsden House is a country house, rebuilt in 1689 after it was damaged by fire.[3] In 1795 Humphry Repton landscaped the park, adding a serpentine lake and a Doric temple.[4] In about 1825 Repton's son, the architect G.S. Repton, remodelled the house for James Langston.[3]

The Church of England parish church of Saint James was rebuilt in 1760.[3] G.S. Repton added a cruciform extension to the east in 1823.[3] In 1896 the architect Walter Mills of Banbury remodelled the north transept and added the bellcote.[3]

Sarsgrove House, or the Dower House, is 1.5 miles (2.4 km) northeast of Sarsden.[5] G.S. Repton remodelled it as a large cottage orné in 1825.[5]
