The house was built in 1756 for Simon, 1st Earl Harcourt, and is owned by Oxford University. Lord Harcourt disliked the untidy village property being visible from the house, built a new village along the main Oxford Road half a mile away and landscaped his gardens. The village is widely believed to be the subject of Oliver Goldsmith's 1770 poem, The Deserted Village, in which he expresses a fear that the destruction of villages and farmland would ruin the peasantry."
