Sarsden House is a country house, rebuilt in 1689 after it was damaged by fire. In 1795 Humphry Repton landscaped the park, adding a serpentine lake and a Doric temple. In about 1825 Repton's son, the architect GS Repton, remodelled the house for James Langston. The house is a Grade II* listed building.
The Church of England parish church of Saint James was rebuilt in 1760. GS Repton added a cruciform extension to the east in 1823. In 1896 the architect Walter Mills of Banbury remodelled the north transept and added the bellcote.
