Winner of a Great British High Street award in 2014 and highlighted by The Sunday Times (April 2nd 2017) as an often overlooked part of Oxfordshire which will soon become a boom town, Wantage is superbly situated in the Vale of the White Horse for all the main travel links, with the A338 providing easy access to the A34, M40, M4, plus the rail links in Oxford, Didcot and Swindon. A picturesque Market Town, with historic ties as far back as Alfred the Great, Wantage has many high street and independent retailers with a plethora of bars, restaurants and cafes in a thriving community. King Alfred’s Academy provides outstanding secondary education and is now part of the Vale Academy Trust, working with good primary schools locally, including Charlton and Wantage CofE. With easy access to the beautiful surrounding countryside including the ancient Ridgeway and White Horse Hill, Wantage fuses the semi-urban and rural in one sublime package.
Leave the Market Place via Wallingford Street past Waitrose and Broadway Motors. Continue over the mini-roundabout on to Charlton Road and at the Nelson Public House turn right on to Larkhill, where the property will be found on the left identified by a Green & Co for sale board.
