Regarded as the most ‘normal town in the country’, Didcot, Oxfordshire, may often be overlooked as a place to live. While ‘normal’ is not necessarily a bad thing, Didcot is far from ordinary. Our Nobel Park development offers a wide range of new homes in Didcot if you’re looking for your next move...

Here are plenty of reasons why this ‘normal’ shouldn’t put you off, and why there is no better time to consider Didcot as your location of choice.

TRAVELLING: BUSINESS OR PLEASURE?

Whether you’re settling down or your career scope, Nobel Park is perfectly situated within the Golden Triangle of the A34, M40 and M4. Your easy access to the M25 means that Heathrow Airport is just an hour’s drive away, so jetting off for the holiday season is a cinch!

Our Nobel Park development is within a catchment of multiple OFTSED-rated ‘Outstanding-Good’ schools with a proposed school on the development. Additionally, our 2,3 and 4- -bedroom homes in Didcot are perfect for a growing family.

The A4130 Northern Perimeter links directly to Milton Park, and the A34 connects you to the buzzing cities of Oxford, Winchester and Southampton.  If you’re opting for public transport, Didcot’s Park and Ride provides you with more options to reach Reading, Cheltenham, Bristol, as well as a direct 40-minute train ride into London Paddington for that peace-of-mind needed for a weekday commute. Read more about your options here.

DAYS OUT IN DIDCOT

The connectivity found with the Golden Triangle also means you are spoilt for choice for things to do in Didcot, with plenty to explore on your doorstep.

 

Didcot Culture and Oxfordian History

Didcot’s rise in the mid-1800’s was powered by steam, so you simply cannot miss out on 200 years of rich, preserved railway heritage at Didcot Railway Centre. Enjoy Discovery, Steam and Heritage Diesel Days at a 21-acre living museum.

Bring your kids to meet the ultimate British icon at Paddington At Didcot, or take up those photo opportunities at a location where Paddington 2 (2017), The Danish Girl (2015), Sherlock Holmes (2011) had graced its rail tracks.

Brush up on a little more Oxfordian with the History of Science Museum, the Ashmolean Museum, or The Story Museum for your little ones, all and more in Oxford City.

 

Newbury Racecourse

Excite the senses with a day out at Newbury Racecourse; enjoy a bite to eat at two gorgeous restaurants, and cheer at the riveting horse races lined up every Spring and Summer.

 

Blenheim Palace

Perhaps you’d enjoy something a little more with Blenheim Palace, one of England's most opulent houses and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.  

Shopping, Wining and Dining

Traverse Oxford, the ‘Cycling City’, and one of the most walkable cities in the UK. Westgate Shopping Centre brimming with designer stores, the hottest food spots, the most sophisticated bars, and much more.

Not bad for a ‘normal’ town!
