Wolvercote, Cutteslowe - Oxford
Divided by the busy A34 junction and the Oxford Canal these two areas are extremely popular among professionals and families alike. Lying north, and north west of Summertown, Wolvercote and Cutteslowe feel as suburban as Summertown is urban. The tree-lined streets of Cutteslowe, with attractive detached housing offset from the road, promote a slower pace of life, while Wolvercote, with its winding, narrow lanes, feels positively rural. The Cotswold stone properties in Wolvercote are full of character and charm, complemented perfectly by two popular local pubs, one of which sits in beautiful surroundings besides the Thames (The Trout Inn). Smaller accommodation can be found in these areas, mainly in more modern property developments situated in small housing estates and low blocks of flats, separated from the period buildings. Besides a few convenience stores, there are no shops in this area. However numerous guesthouses, North Oxford Golf Course, a primary school, Cutteslowe Park, and Wolvercote Common can be found here. Furthermore, Oxford airport is 4 miles away, while stunning Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Winston Churchill, and one of the country’s most imposing historic houses is a short drive from here. The Pear Tree park and ride is convenient for both these areas.
