Aston Tirrold and Aston Upthorpe 

Lying in the shadow of the Berkshire Downs the picture postcard villages of Aston Tirrold and Aston Upthorpe feature a large number of half timbered, thatch and cob properties. 

It is hard to believe that these picturesque villages are less than five miles from Didcot railway station, just over four miles from the market town of Wallingford and only seven miles from the A34. They are surrounded by delightful countryside and are popular with walkers, dog owners, cyclists and horse riders and one of the country's leading stud farms is based in Aston Upthorpe. 

Both villages have a church each that is believed to date back to Norman times and they both benefit from the Aston Pavilion and Recreation Ground featuring a newly refurbished children's play area, boules pitch, zip wire, grass football pitch and cricket square. There are several clubs in the village including a history group, garden society, short mat bowls club, Pilates classes and a WI group. There is also a weekly cafe and post office in the villages every Tuesday from 10am - 12 noon.

The property has a whole house ventilation and heat recovery system coupled with electric under floor heating.
