Watchfield has a charming village centre with a church, village hall and public house, and a small shopping centre with a public house and a restaurant near the roundabout with the A420. The Defence Academy of the United Kingdom provides post-graduate level education for UK and overseas military personnel. Many students and staff live in the village and play an active part in community life. The excellent village primary school has children from several different countries, which makes for an interesting learning environment.
Together, Watchfield and Shrivenham make one of the larger village areas within the Vale of the White Horse and are located to the north east of Swindon (circa 5 miles) and to the south west of the market town of Faringdon (circa 5 miles). A bypass built in 1984 ensures that the rural atmosphere of both villages is preserved. Shrivenham also has an extremely active community. There is a lovely tree-lined high street with shops, restaurants, public houses, a doctors' surgery, village primary school and an impressive church, parts of which date back to the 11th Century. There is also a golf course.
Both villages are ideally located for access to the M4 at Swindon and the A420 leading to Oxford and beyond. There is a frequent bus service from Swindon to Oxford and back.
DIRECTIONS From Faringdon, take the A420 in the direction of Swindon and after approximately four miles, take the second exit off the roundabout. Continue over the next mini roundabout, and after approximately half a mile, turn right into Watchfield High Street. Take the third turning on the left into Squires Road and the property can be found on the right hand side in the small cul de sac
