The bustling and hugely popular Market Town of Witney lies some 12 miles west of Oxford and is well situated for the A40, A34 and M4 & M40 motorways. The vibrant and rapidly expanding Town has a wide range of shops in the sympathetically designed Woolgate Centre, traditional High Street and more recently built Marriotts Walk shopping mall with major shopping brands including Marks & Spencer and a multi-screen 3D cinema.
The Market Square with historic Butter Cross opens onto the delightful Church Green flanked by beautiful period properties with St. Mary’s Church dominating the south side. Amenities in the Town include supermarkets, banks, two secondary schools and numerous primary schools, leisure centre, Witney & Abingdon College, a vast array of restaurants and public houses, a fantastic daily bus service into Oxford and, on the outskirts of the Town, Witney Lakes Resort with golf course, health club and swimming pool. There are also plenty of countryside walks within easy reach of the Town.
Leaving Witney on Oxford Hill bear left towards Oxford/A40 and the property is the first house on the left at the bottom of the hill on the A40 approach road.
