Witney: Something for everyone

Witney: Something for everyone

Some towns and villages around the UK will appeal more to one demographic than others for different reasons, making it easy to decide to live there, but for others, it can be more difficult to pinpoint the sort of people who would fit in.

However, while this can be a challenge that buyers and sellers alike need to overcome, it can also be a blessing, as can be seen when looking at property for sale in Witney. The Oxfordshire town truly does have something for everyone thanks to its population, atmosphere and very preferable positioning.

For example, commuters will instantly fall in love with it. For all its rural setting is lovely and serene, it also offers great links to the likes of Oxford for people who want to work but not live in the city. 

Only six miles away, those looking to go from Witney to Oxford can easily get there on a range of bus services, while those who want to take the chance to stay fit might even take a gentle bike ride each morning.

As well as commuters though, the town will also appeal to families and older people who are looking to feel like they are a part of a brilliant and thriving small community. With only 21,000 people in Witney, it creates a small-town atmosphere that is peaceful and quiet, but also focuses on residents.

For example, the centre of the town comes alive each Thursday morning, when locals can get out and about at the market, shopping for goods from the nearby areas and meeting and mingling with their neighbours.

For those wanting to learn a bit about the culture of Witney in days gone by, there is also a range of historical attractions. Take the kids to any of the three museums prevalent in the town to find out about the past of the settlement and Oxfordshire in general.

The brewery and range of pubs around can also make a great place for local young professionals to chill out and relax during weekends.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801611291-ADNFCR
