There are local nursery, primary and secondary schools (The Warriner) with Tudor Hall and Bloxham School closeby.

Woodlands is a Grade II Listed detached ironstone cottage situated in the popular village of Bloxham. The property is believed to date from the early 18th century (with later additions) and has many period features including window seats with shutters, stone floors, feature fireplaces and ceiling timbers. It now requires some sympathetic updating and modernisation, which would result in a fabulous family home.
The property is accessed via a quarry tiled entrance hall, leading to the sitting room with an open fireplace, window seat and pine shutters. The dining room has a fabulous inglenook fireplace, which leads to the kitchen/breakfast room, with adjacent utility area. A rear door gives additional garden access. There is also a family room with adjoining conservatory, with sliding doors to the garden. From the entrance hall the cellar can also be accessed.
Timber panelled stairs lead to the first floor. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom, and overlooks the garden. There is a further double bedroom on this floor along with the family bathroom. On the second floor there two further bedrooms.
The mature garden is south facing, mainly laid to lawn with fruit trees and shrub and flower borders. A terrace provides a perfect place to relax and entertain. Some steps lead down to a further garden area, a perfect place for a vegetable garden or another place to relax. To the front of the cottage there is off-street parking.
