Alvescot is an incredibly attractive village with its thriving community which supports a church, a village hall with recreation ground and tennis court, and the ever popular pub, The Plough Inn.
The ancient market town of Bampton lies just south of the Cotswolds. Until about 1850, it stood in the centre of a large area of common land, hence its previous name of ‘Bampton in the Bush’.
Bampton is sometimes described as a town, because it used to be a market town until the 19th century. It is now officially designated a village but has both Town and Village Halls.
Located in the Thames Valley 4.5 miles south west of Witney and 6 miles from the well known Cotswold market town of Burford. The town has many pleasant 17th and 18th century houses a few inns and useful stores. Bampton is one of the oldest towns in England.
The larger, and more widely known Burford is only 6 miles north. The famous High Street sweeps downhill towards the River Windrush, its medieval bridge and its impressive church. Both sides of the street are flanked by an unbroken line of historic houses and shops.
With little having changed over the centuries, Burford is popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping and wide variety of places to eat, with a number of restaurants, pubs and teashops.
Burford is equidistant between the popular towns of Cheltenham and Oxford, both offering extensive shopping, dining options, pubs and facilities.
There are a number of state and private schools in the area, most notably; St Hugh’s and Pinewood to name just two. Road communications are fantastic to the A40 which in turn provides access the M40 to London, and the M5 to the west.
