Vibrant communities are formed in a mixture of the big occasions and the little moments. It’s that combination of the chat over the fence, sharing the dog-walking and babysitting duties, meeting in a local pub or restaurant for a drink, stopping for a chat in the local shop – through to the street-party and local fair or carnival - that adds up to a sense of belonging somewhere.
The same golden Cotswold stone of your home also makes the warm glow of Woodstock so welcoming. Walk, bike or bus; you’ll find a vibrant market town, centred around its town hall and small square, with independent boutiques, galleries, cafés, pubs and restaurants, as well as good schools and plenty of clubs and societies.
From your home in Park View, a short walk leads you into 2000 acres of parkland, with the baroque splendour of Blenheim Palace at its heart.
The city of Oxford, with ancient colleges, quads and dreaming spires, as well as theatres and museums, is just 10 miles (and 10 minutes by train) away. Connections from your local stations Hanborough and Oxford Parkway will get you into London in just over an hour, with regular trains to Paddington and Marylebone respectively.
By car, the M40 from Oxford gives swift access to London and Birmingham, with Heathrow airport only 70 minutes away.
