There is excellent local schooling in the area to include - St. Johns Priory Prep School, Tudor Hall (girls) and Bloxham Public School (co-ed).
Westgate House has been a well-loved family home for many years, and is now offered to the market for the first time in over 40 years. It offers substantial living accommodation, with generous gardens and grounds.
