Wheatley is a thriving village community just seven miles to the south east of Oxford. It has retained an excellent range of shops and facilities making it a genuinely working village. Families are well catered for with nurseries as well as primary and secondary schools. There is a sports centre in neighbouring Holton and shops include convenience stores, butchers, bakery, coffee shop, post-office/gift shop, pharmacy and antique shop. There is also a doctors surgery, dentist, hairdressers and complimentary therapy clinic too.
The public transport links are excellent with 280 and U1 bus services providing regular access to Oxford, Thame and Aylesbury and with junction 8 of the M40 just a 10 minute drive away, Wheatley is very well positioned for those needing to drive to London, Birmingham or beyond.
