The AreaSutton Courtenay

Sutton Courtenay is one of South Oxfordshire’s most highly regarded and sought after locations. A pretty village with a stunning green and 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, there are three pubs to choose from, two village shops and a garage.

Commuting to London or Oxford couldn’t be easier. Brook House is exceptionally well placed, with Didcot Parkway Station only 4 miles away and trains to London Paddington from 37 minutes.

The closest town is Abingdon which sits in a desirable position on the River Thames and includes a stunning market square and attractive architecture, such as the County Hall, built from Oxfordshire Limestone and believed to be designed by Sir Christopher Wren. This is market town living at its finest. Oxford itself is just over 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 highlights being the River Thames and Wittenham Clumps.

There is a wide and excellent choice of both state and private schools, including a Primary School within Sutton Courtenay.
