Local Information

Leisure Facilities

There is plenty of choice for food and drink locally with the family run Horseshoes pub serving locally sourced food in central Witney. The Meze Lounge and restaurant is an authentic Mediterranean dining experience using traditional Mediterranean ingredients and spices for those looking to try exciting new foods. Less than a 10 minute drive away is The Fleece, a bright gastropub with seasonal menus, stripped wood flooring & chic rooms in a Georgian building that overlooks the expanse of Witney’s beautiful Church Green. It has twice been voted one of the top twenty pubs in the UK.



Whilst there's a wealth of things to see and do on your doorstep, you can reach Oxford –  a cultural and historical magnet for visitors from the local area and around the world – in less than 40 minutes by car. Windrush Place is surrounded by local places of interest and excellent sights to visit and enjoy.



The picture-postcard village of Minster Lovell, just a couple of miles away, is a perfect example of a Cotswold stone village with local country inns and gastro pubs, and there are hundreds of similar destinations ideal for a cycle ride or family outing.



Blenheim Palace, a magnificent house and garden, birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, is well worth a visit, and there are lots of other houses, gardens and country parks, as well as woodland walks in the Forest of Wychwood and in Charlbury.



Twenty minutes drive from Windrush Place, Oxford has a wealth of attractions. World class museums, art galleries and historic buildings, in and around the colleges of the University, are a timeless joy to discover. Top quality arts and entertainment are all available in abundance, while the River Thames flows through the centre, offering bankside walks and meadows, and boat trips too. You can enjoy a serious day of shopping in Oxford too, or you could branch out only 22 miles away from Windrush Place to Bicester Village, one of the country’s largest designer shopping destinations.



Families with children will enjoy the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens, or the Cogges Manor Farm Museum in Witney, offering demonstrations, tours and animal feeding - perfect for little ones.



 

Local Shopping

Living on the outskirts of the town means Windrush Place enjoys the best of both worlds. With plenty of green, open spaces on your doorstep and the beautiful countryside nearby, you are also within walking distance of the local shops and other amenities. With dozens of local sports clubs, neighbourhood interest groups, community activities and even a town band, Witney is a great place to have on your doorstep.

 

Witney has two modern shopping centres with a good range of shops. Marriotts Walk offers Marks & Spencer, Debenhams and Dorothy Perkins to name a few, while the Woolgate Shopping Centre, with its 800 space car park, is home to stores including Next, H&M and Waitrose.

 

There are schools, doctors' and dentists' surgeries close to home, plus essential amenities such as banks, a post office and a library. The Windrush Witney Leisure centre has a gym, 25-metre swimming pool, sports courts and a cycling studio.

Education

There are schools for all ages, from nursery pre-schools to further education colleges and universities, all within a short drive.



Witney has five community primary schools, the closest being Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School and West Witney Primary School. Others are Madley Brook, Queens Dyke, and Tower Hill Primary Schools.



There are three county secondary schools, including the Henry Box Comprehensive School, which takes its name from a local boy who, like Dick Whittington, went to London to seek his fortune and returned to found the school in 1662. Other secondary’s are Wood Green School and Springfield School – a state school for pupils aged 2 to 16 with severe learning difficulties.



Independent schools include Cokethorpe School, for boys and girls 4 - 18, about 3.5 miles away.



Older students will find Abingdon & Witney College at the local Witney campus, officially Oxfordshire's most successful college and in the top 10% nationwide.



And of course Oxford University is one of the world's most famous and prestigious centres of education, research and academic excellence.

About Developer

Bloor Homes
Building for the Future

Bloor Homes design and build homes of distinction tailored to the needs of modern life. Those who aspire to our homes readily acknowledge you only need look at a Bloor Home to realise that not all new homes are the same. But the true difference that sets Bloor Homes apart from the crowd is deeper than the varied architectural styles that first catch the eye.

The Bloor Group began building houses over 35 years ago and today is one of the largest privately owned house building groups in the UK. Building in excess of eighteen hundred homes each year, the house building operation is managed through eight regional companies. Our approach to the design of every new location goes far beyond the provision of superior homes for today’s way of living. We make every effort to conserve the natural balance of each location including the conservation of wildlife and the preservation of natural features – a policy which has been praised by several planning departments.

Our architects create interesting, imaginative layouts that compliment the range of properties. Whichever home you choose, you will find all rooms, together with their high specification, provide not only maximum comfort, but greater freedom of movement. Reserve a Bloor Home in the early stages of construction and you will have the freedom of choice too, to chose from our range of finishes for the kitchen, bathrooms and en-suite facilities.

We keep an eye on the future, combining traditional building materials and using modern methods to reduce maintenance. We pride ourselves on the wide choice of styles we offer from apartments to seven bedroom luxury homes.

With every Bloor Home comes the peace of mind that your needs and enquiries will always be answered, from your first visit to the day you move in to your new home.
