The village of Cassington lies on the other side of the A40 and boasts 2 pubs, a reputable Primary School, Church and a picturesque village green. The popular village of Eynsham is about a mile distant and can be easily accessed via the A40 or the old Cassington Road on foot or Bicycle. Eynsham boasts excellent local amenities that include local shops, post office, library, health centre, pubs, primary & secondary schools and an extensive daily bus service to Oxford and Witney.
At the Cassington traffic lights on the A40 turn on to the old Eynsham Road opposite Cassington village and follow this road to the end, turning left into the site of the old Cassington Mill. Continue down the private road and Mill Cottage will be found on your left.
In the sellers' words ...
"Mill Cottage has been our family home for 25 years. It has been a wonderful place to live as we are surrounded by such beautiful unspoiled countryside. We love the peaceful and private location, the beautiful trees surrounding our property, the river, the wide open spaces and the wildlife. The transport links are excellent and although we’re just off the A40 you would think we were in the depths of the countryside miles away from civilisation! We sometimes have visits from ducks who occasionally lay their eggs in our garden and it has been a delight for all the family to open our gate and watch the mum and her ducklings walk down from our garden to the river. The youngsters in the family enjoy paddling and swimming in the river and taking their canoes out. Although we’re close to the river we are on high ground and have never flooded and the risk of flooding due to our elevated position is highly unlikely. We enjoy sitting under our veranda in all weathers watching the hundreds of birds that come into our garden each day to use our bird feeders, seeing the woodpeckers and their young is a particularly beautiful sight"
