Oxfordshire: A County Guide [NOOK Book]

Overview

Cv Publications' new series of Barnaby's Relocation Guides to English counties is launched with my survey of Oxfordshire. It has been a journey of discovery. Rather than just passing from point A to B my excursions followed an ad-hoc schedule of diverse routes.

Overview

Cv Publications' new series of Barnaby's Relocation Guides to English counties is launched with my survey of Oxfordshire. It has been a journey of discovery. Rather than just passing from point A to B my excursions followed an ad-hoc schedule of diverse routes. I found myself turning down obscure side lanes leading to little villages hidden in a marvellous landscape of deep countryside. Documenting over one hundred centres the county gradually revealed itself as largely unspoilt by the industrial sprawl. Oxford itself is of course very lively and cosmopolitan, but communications and facilities are as good in the many market towns. I was really interested to note the range of properties both old and new and the particular character of an area. I hope that my guide provides details and insights that will assist your own enquiries for a new location. Sarah James

Burford Burford is the place everyone wants to live and it is easy to see why. A beautiful town not filled with chain stores, but individual shops. Among the purveyors of fine foods: Mrs Bumbles stocks jams, chutneys, fresh bread, coffee, charcuterie. Explore The Quill Bookshop, Oxford Shirt Company and Maggie White's knitwear, clogs and jewellery. There are always lots of visitors. I enjoyed a break at Huffkins Bakery and Tea Room, with their fine selection of cakes and pastries. You can stay at Burford House Hotel in the High Street. There are houses dotted around the town and near the car park. Pretty period cottages run close to the Church. Burford is a showpiece of a town, hanging baskets adorn almost every building. Charlbury An attractive location which sprawls in all directions. Charlbury has specialist shops: Charlbury Interiors, The Good Food Shop (for organic produce and Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream). The Bull Inn and Bell Hotel and Restaurant, c.1700. Numerous Cotswold stone houses with a modern development of housing estates at the back of the town. There is the pretty church of St.Mary's. Charlbury has enough life without feeling cut off or too busy. Note that there is a severe lack of property available to purchase. Church Hanborough A pretty village set deep in the countryside, but a regrettable amount of traffic passing through. There are buses to and from Oxford. Also the village Pub, Hand & Shears, St.Peter and Paul Church, and a very desirable house, 'The Old Rectory'.
