About this House

Tucked away in the picturesque Oxfordshire village of Aston Upthorpe lies this attractive family home. Old Sarum Cottage has a warm and inviting feel, with generously proportioned rooms - ideally suited for a family and those who enjoy entertaining. The cottage is bursting with charm with a number of features including exposed beams, low windows and attractive fireplaces. There is a choice of well proportioned reception rooms and the five bedroom, two bathroom layout makes for comfortable family living. At its heart, Old Sarum Cottage is an exceptional village house, with a well-appointed kitchen, with AGA and a useful utility room.   Outside, there is a terrace that enjoys wonderful views over the garden which is laid to lawn and interspersed with a variety of mature trees. There is also a vegetable patch/fruit garden and greenhouse. To the front of the cottage is an enclosed garden with redbrick path leading to the front door.

The attractive detached barn is also steeped in history and provides the most wonderful storage space and could be used as a home office/annexe if the relevant consents were obtained and granted. Double doors open from the lane and lead through the barn onto a driveway with parking for a number of cars.


Situated in picturesque, Oxfordshire countryside are The Astons - the collective name given to the villages of Aston Upthorpe and Aston Tirrold . The two are contiguous with thriving communities supporting a village hall, two churches, popular village pub, cricket club and post office.

Nearby Wallingford – with its desirable setting and attractive architecture – offers market town living at its finest. Bordered by the rolling Chilterns on one side and the magnificent Berkshire Downs on the other, it’s an idyllic spot with inexhaustible options for lovers of the outdoors.

With its large open market square and famous castle ruins, this bustling market town is suffused in history. But what you might not know is that contemporary Wallingford is home to a fresh and energetic vibe, stoked by some great independent shopping, a sparkling array of dining options and thriving café culture. If that wasn’t enough, Wallingford’s outstanding schools, great leisure facilities and abundant footpaths, mean the town is fast becoming South Oxfordshire’s most sought after small town.

With both Oxford and Reading within striking distance, Wallingford is well-connected to some of London’s fastest rail-links and is well positioned for both the M4 and M40.
