Ashbury is a charming village, dating back to at least AD 840 and steeped in history, close to the famous White Horse Hill at Uffington, and part of a wildlife conservation area. It has a public house, the Rose and Crown Hotel (which includes a post office), a Church of England primary school and a village shop with tea room.

The parish church of St Mary was originally Norman but was rebuilt in the 13th century. Here, the first Sunday School in England was founded in 1777 which developed into what became Church Aided Primary School education. Ashbury Mission Hall was a "tin tabernacle" building of corrugated iron opened in 1908. The building was replaced in 1972-73 with the present Ashbury Evangelical Free Church. Ashdown House, built in about 1660 and now run by the National Trust, is about two miles south of the village.

Nearby Shrivenham (c. 4 miles) is one of the larger villages in the Vale and has a number of shops, restaurants, public houses and a doctors' surgery as well as a primary school and Church of England and Methodist churches.

Ashbury is well located for access to the M4 motorway (c. 7 miles) and Swindon has mainline rail services.
