Woodstock, Charlbury, Chipping Norton, Burford and Witney are all market towns which can be found in West Oxfordshire. They all have a feel of being large villages and offer a place to live with a real sense of community.

Burford is often referred to as the gateway to the Cotswolds and Cotswold Stone is a common building material for houses in West Oxfordshire. Both the towns and villages of West Oxfordshire have many stone built cottages and newer developments are also regularly built from local stone.

Blenheim Palace, found in Woodstock, and dating from the early 1700s is a big draw for tourists who flock to the home of the Dukes of Marlborough to enjoy its Baroque architecture and Capability Brown designed gardens. In recent years, it has opened its gates regularly to host events including the Blenheim Horse Trials, The Game Fair and Countryfile Live.

The Blenheim Estate owns plenty of land in West Oxfordshire and is responsible for much of the development in the region which helps provide the housing supply needed in the county. And with destinations like Soho Farmhouse and Daylesford Farm in the region Londoners love it for a second home to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
