Blewbury is a "spring line" village which sits at the foot of the chalk hills of the North Wessex Downs. Its attractive and unusual streets wind between ancient thatched houses surrounded by the village's unique "cob" walls and are interwoven with the many pretty streams which emerge from the base of the hills. The village was once home to Kenneth Grahame, author of The Wind in the Willows.
Blewbury is in a quiet setting, but close to the A34 and is in an excellent location, within easy reach of many premium employers such as the Harwell Campus, Milton Park and Oxfordshire's Science Parks. Didcot Parkway Station, just 10 minutes' drive, is served by regular, fast trains to Paddington, the West and the Midlands. The A34 links easily to Oxford, the M4 to London and Bristol, and the M40 to the Midlands.
