Freeland's unusual name is derived from the common Old English word fyrth, meaning a wood, and the community developed from a medieval freehold which, by the 16th century, was called Frithlands.

Location map:

At one end of the village is the village green and this is thought to have been where Frithlands was located. On the village green is an old pump.

A little further north is the village centre where the parish church, a Methodist church, the village pub and the village hall can be found.

The parish church is the 19th century Church of St. Mary the Virgin which has 13th century-style wall paintings of Jesus' Passion and Transfiguration.

Freeland is down a lane to the south of the A4095 about midway between Witney and the village of Bladon.
