It has a small junior school, a village pub named 'The Ashill Inn', a village hall and a playing field.
Ashill is mentioned in the Domesday book for its extensive woodland. The manor passed from the de Vaux family to Sir Thomas Moulton by 1317, and then through the Stretche and Beauchamp families to the Spekes who built "jordans" as their mansion, which was demolished in 1960s, although the grotto/summer house, dating from 1828 in the grounds survives.
The church is named The Church of the Virgin Mary and dates from the 12th or 13th century, with various later alterations. It has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II* listed building. The old rectory has some 16th century fragments but was largely rebuilt around 1800.
