Luxurious living at the heart of the Vale of White Horse
A quintessential example of an Oxfordshire country village, Marcham's name derives from the Old English, Merceham, which translates to a place where wild celery grows. Today, the wild celery may be slightly less abundant, but Marcham is still awash with idyllic greenery - not to mention a strong community focus, which ensures the village continues to thrive.
While some of Marcham's finest qualities are the peace and tranquility if affords, this corner of Oxfordshire has plenty to offer. Hidden gems such as The Bear and Ragged Staff in Cumnor, a superb gastro-pub, and Bothy Vineyard's fine wine are just waiting to be discovered. As are the three championship courses at Frilford Heath Golf Club.
The nearby market town of Abingdon-on-Thames is perfect of all your everyday needs. Oxford, Didcot and Bicester Village are also readily accessible for more thorough shopping excursions. Abingdon-on-Thames is also home to a great many of the area's superb schools, such as the Manor Preparatory School and Abingdon School.
For commuters, Didcot is served by regular train services to London Paddington, which can take just 37 minutes. Additionally, for those working closer to home, Marcham is well located for the high tech hubs of Milton Park and Harwell Campus. In all, you couldn't ask for a better location.
