We are moving to Oxfordshire due to job relocation. We need to live in south Oxfordshire due to location of job. Can anyone please tell me what areas are nice but affordable? Will need a 3 bed house not more than £250k.
Thank you

Whereabouts is the job based, and what would be your maximum commute? I'm in Oxford city, but might be able to suggest some places. smile

I live in South Oxfordshire. You're going to have to keep away from the South-east corner of Oxon as that's pricey but Abingdon/Didcot/Wantage areas are nice. That's where I live and love it, lots of countryside but not far from amenities. You'll be at the top of your budget though. How far south do you need to be? Have you considered Newbury? Might get more for your money there and they've spangley new shops smile

Try Woodcote. Cheaper than Goring, good schools and great community.

Woodcote not cheap, though. Too close to Reading. grin Didcot has nice 3 bed homes on the Ladygrove Estate (which is nice) for possibly your budget. But it's not a cheap part of the country to live in. sad Abingdon also has houses on that budget.

Used to live in SOxon and apart from Reading, which one should avoid at all costs, can't think of a place you could get something nice for that price. However, I'm sure I'll be corrected.
Good luck.
