It is close ot the main A34 Oxford to Newbury road, and consequently has felt the pressure of development, but Sunningwell has succeeded, after a campaign run by parishioners in warding off plans to develop Green Belt land surrounding the village.
The Flowing Well public house with beer garden is a well known destination for walkers.
The parish church is St Leonard's. The church is largely 15th century with some earlier parts. The west porch is said to have been given by John Jewel, later Bishop of Salisbury, who was rector here in about 1551. There is a stained glass east window by J.P. Seddon, a friend of William Morris, who restored the church in 1877. The church is a Grade II* listed building.
Samuel Fell, chaplain to King James I, was rector here from 1625 to 1649.
Near the parish church is Sunningwell Art School.
