- THE MORETONS
(North and South) and the Astons (Upthorpe and Tirrold)
Where are they? These four lovely villages are all on the north-east fringes of the North Wessex Downs, about 15 miles south of Oxford.
The commute: all four are within about five miles of Didcot Parkway station, with trains to Paddington from 42 minutes. An annual season ticket costs from £4,920.
Plus points: Linda Jeffcoat, of Stacks Property Search, rates these pretty villages for good commuter links, proximity to Oxford, and for their homes. “They have cob-walled thatch, brick and flint and large country houses. There is a strong community and most of them have a pub, church, sports clubs and village co-operative stores, and plenty of country and Thames-side walks.”
