A well presented Grade II listed cottage overlooking the green in this desirable north Oxfordshire village. No onward chain.


Bletchingdon is a charming and sought after village situated
just 6 miles to the north of the university city of Oxford. The
parish church is believed to date from the 12th century and Sir
Christopher Wren also once resided in the village.

With a thriving community, amenities in the village include a primary school, nursery, sports field, village hall and public house; a community shop is due to open in 2018.

The market town of Bicester and city of Oxford provide for more extensive facilities and leisure needs.

Communications are excellent with the M40 (J9) about 4 miles away, access to Oxford via the A34 and intercity train service from either Oxford Parkway (about 4 miles) or Bicester station (about 8 miles) with London/Marylebone being about 55 and 50 minutes respectively. There is also a local mainline station at Islip and a regular bus service runs from Bletchingdon to Oxford and Bicester.

The area is well served for schools with a primary school in the village and senior state at Kidlington, Bicester or Woodstock, as well as the numerous highly regarded independent schools in Oxford.


Briar Cottage is a stone detached property believed to date to the late 17th/early 18th century. Grade II Listed it is understood the property was formerly two cottages.
