OUR THOUGHTS ON LONG WHITTENHAM
Long Wittenham is one of South Oxfordshire’s most highly regarded and sought after villages. An attractive village with many period and thatched properties, there is a real sense of community. This is very much a village which retains the best qualities of traditional village life.Perched on the banks of the River Thames, the Plough pub is within walking distance from Mallard Reach and there is also an excellent Indian restaurant, The Vine &Spice located on the High Street.
Commuting to London or Oxford couldn’t be easier. Long Wittenham is exceptionally well placed, with Didcot Parkway Station less than 4 miles away and trains to London Paddington from 37 minutes. A cycle path runs directly from Long Wittenham to Didcot.
Long Wittenham is equidistant from the two Thames side market towns of Abingdon and Wallingford, with their desirable settings and attractive architecture – both offer market town living at its finest. Oxford itself is less than 10 miles away.
Bordered by the rolling Chilterns on one side and the magnificent Berkshire Downs on the other, the surrounding countryside is idyllic with inexhaustible options for lovers of the outdoors, with the highlight being the neighbouring Wittenham Clumps.
There is a wide and excellent choice of both state and private schools, including a Primary School within Long Wittenham.
