South Hinksey - Oxford
This historic village hides in the shadows of trees, beyond which runs the busy A34. Many period properties, including a breathtaking Tudor house, and mediaeval church lend appeal and character, while the neighbouring golf course gives South Hinksey an air of exclusivity. The possibility of letting in this village is small, partially due to its petite size. Residents tend to be families and professional couples, eager to minimise their commute into Oxford city centre, or even into London. As well as numerous Cotswold stone houses and thatched cottages, there are also bungalows of differing sizes, indicating that there are a variety of property prices in this area. A tributary of the Thames trickles past South Hinksey, and the Oxford Canal lies just beyond. The towpaths are also popular with ramblers. Redbridge park and ride is conveniently located, and is necessary as there is no bus service and South Hinksey possesses no amenities of its own.
