Milcombe is a rather ordinary little village and, like other villages in this part of Oxfordshire, the older buildings in the village are built in the local dark honey-coloured ironstone.

In the centre of the village is the Grade II listed St Laurence's Church which was built in the 13th century although little survives from this period except the west tower. Full information about St. Laurence's Church can be found here.

On a green near the village centre is an early 18th century octagonal dovecote, constructed of coursed ironstone rubble beneath a stone slate roof. The dovecote is a relic of Milcombe House, a large 17th century house, which was demolished in 1953.

Milcombe is just off the A361 Banbury to Chipping Norton road about 5 miles south-west of Banbury.
