About Oxfordshire

In recent years, Oxfordshire – particularly the southern stretch of country between Oxford and Reading – has been voted the best non-urban location to live in the UK, offering an unrivalled quality of life.  This is no doubt due to its beautiful countryside and convenient proximity to London; the fact that both urban and suburban Oxfordshire is rich with historical interest and exquisite architecture.

Oxfordshire’s desirability to ex-urbanites is in part down to its excellent schools. It isn’t just the famous city of dreaming spires – the county as a whole has a rich intellectual tradition thanks to the prestigious university of Oxford, making it an ideal place to live and teach.

Oxfordshire in numbers:

  1. The average rent of a one-bedroom apartment in Oxford is £1,183 pcm, compared to £2,043 pcm in London
  2. The cost of living for a single person in Oxford is £738 pcm, compared to £932 pcm in London
  3. The journey from Oxford to London Paddington by train takes 58 minutes
