Witney: The perfect setting for families in Oxfordshire

Witney: The perfect setting for families in Oxfordshire

Families can be among the hardest demographics to satisfy when it comes to looking for a new town or city in which to live, largely because different members of the family will have vastly different requirements from a new settlement.

If this is a dilemma you are faced with this year, then you will be seeking out somewhere that will offer something for everyone, and this can be found when checking out the range of property for sale in Witney.

The Oxfordshire town has a population of just 22,000, which makes it the ideal place for people with a young family to live, thanks to the fact the streets will be quieter and the roads not as busy as if they lived in one of the bigger cities around the nation.

One of its biggest benefits is that it is located just 12 miles outside the city of Oxford, which is ideal for parents who are working in the larger area but don't want to live there as well. It is reachable with ease by bus or by car on a daily basis.

Back in the town, anyone with kids will want to know that there are decent provisions for where they are going to send their children to learn. Witney itself is home to five primary schools and three secondary schools, so parents will have a good range of choice.

And in terms of settling in to a smaller settlement like this, it will be important that you feel at home and relaxed, so becoming part of the community will be a vital part of this. In this particular town, there is a traditional market which takes place each Thursday, allowing people to buy local goods and wares as well as having the chance to mix with their neighbours and meet other residents. There is also a market that takes place each Saturday, which has become prevalent in recent times.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801593566-ADNFCR
