Buscot Park lies between the small towns of Lechlade and Faringdon, on the A417.

The nearest rail station is at Swindon (10 miles away), while a number of bus services operate to Lechlade: Thamesdown 67 Swindon––Faringdon (Fridays only); Carterton 64 Swindon––Carterton; Thamesdown 77 Swindon––Cirencester (both the last two services pass close to the rail station in Swindon). The 67 and 77 services only go to Lechlade: alight here – there is then a 2 3/4 mile walk to Buscot Park.
