The main parts of the small village of Fritwell are along the aptly named North Street and East Street. Along North Street in particular the houses are very spread out with plenty of green space between groups of houses, and wide grass verges.
At the end of a short lane leading from North Street is the parish church, St. Olave's.
Although historically there have been two manor houses in the village, the only surviving one is on North Street. It was originally built in the late 16th century but was rebuilt in the 17th. It was restored in the 19th century and, in the 20th century, had a wing added.
Fritwell is about 5 miles north-west of Bicester, near the M40 motorway.
