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, a village shop, post office and a garage.
Commuting to London or Oxford couldn’t be easier. Courtenay Lodge is exceptionally well placed, with Didcot Parkway Station only 4.1 miles away and trains to London Paddington from 37 minutes. The village is also very well served by bus routes to all of the main private schools within the surrounding area.
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.
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.

Prominently located in the conservation area of Sutton Courtenay, and only a stone’s throw from the river Thames, Courtenay Lodge sits proudly in this picturesque Oxfordshire village scene, nestled amongst a medley of other lovely period houses.

Beautifully landscaped gardens including an outdoor swimming pool complete with a jet stream system and a wonderful pool house.
