Mainline train stations are found at Bicester (London Marylebone from 45 minutes) and Banbury for the north.

The famous Bicester Village high-end shopping outlet is about 16 minutes away.

Planning consent for the construction of two modern style houses on the site of a 1920s house was granted on 17th March 2020 to ‘demolish existing dwelling and replace with 2 x 4 bedroom dwellings’. The new houses will be constructed of brick under a slate roof with the accommodation arranged over three floors and extending to about 2,450 sq ft.

The ground floor is accessed by the front door to a good-sized hallway with a sitting room with doors to a balcony . Two bedrooms sharing a family shower room.
