Local Information

    About Botley

    Botley is a market town with the best of both worlds - you have the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside on your doorstep, but the hustle and bustle of Oxford city centre is also just a stone's throw away. With fantastic rail links to London Paddington, Manchester Piccadilly and Newcastle, this Oxfordshire town is well connected to the rest of the country. The M40 motorway is also nearby and the M4 corridor is easily accessible, linking Botley to Bristol, the West Country and South Wales.

    There is plenty to do in Botley and the surrounding area, especially with Oxford city centre so close by. You can take a trip to the Elms Parade, which is home to a selection of retailers. Or, If you're looking for a more immersive shopping experience, why not travel to the city centre and visit the Westgate Shopping Centre - home to over 100 well-known brands! If you'd rather spend some time outdoors there's the Strawberry Trail, a circular route of over 15 miles that travels through both farm and woodland. If walking doesn't take your fancy how about a dip in the Hinksey Outdoor Swimming Pool?

      kept fully informed
      D Cox

      '' Our house selling process started four days before lockdown in March 2020. The house was advertised on the Monday morning and Monday afternoon we received an offer that we accepted. The selling process continued through the lockdown period and although Chancellors furloughed staff there was always someone there looking after our sale and keeping us informed of progress. Despite all the difficulties that Covid-19 caused, things appeared to have carried on smoothly and ten weeks later we completed on the sale. Throughout the whole experience we were kept fully informed and treated as if we were VIP clients by Chancellors and particularly by Michael Trueman and his team at the Botley branch.''
