The historic village of Blewbury nestling at the foot of the Berkshire Downlands close to the ancient Ridgeway Path, boasts Saxon origins and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 commissioned by William the Conqueror. The scenic surrounding countryside is designated an “A.O.N.B.”. On wandering through the village one can see a wealth of period houses and cottages together with ancient thatched walls, footpaths and waterways reflecting a rich architectural heritage.
Today the village is thriving supported by local amenities including a family owned and run nursery and market garden shop, two traditional pubs, garage with convenience store primary school with linked pre-school, a village hall with recreation ground, tennis club, croquet club and riding stables with livery. Blewbury also boasts a long connection with “the arts” and has always attracted artists and writers and as a consequence has flourishing music and drama societies. The village is also known for its connection to horse racing with Steve Donoghue a celebrated jockey at the turn of the last century having trained horses here and in more recent times the Derby winner Ribero was trained locally.
The local area boasts an excellent range of private and state schools including ones in Moulsford, Abingdon and Oxford. Nearby the thriving market town of Wallingford offers many local amenities including a Waitrose supermarket, boutique shops and medical centre.
Didcot town, just 4 miles away, offers a large new shopping centre and Didcot Parkway Station provides fast direct commuter services to Oxford, Reading and London (Paddington) in under the hour. Equally road communications are excellent with the A34 a short drive away linking to the M4 at Chieveley (Junction 13).
