The rural village of East Hanney in Oxfordshire could be the perfect location for you to put down roots. We have a collection of beautiful 2 and 3 bedroom homes recently released at Priors Lea that could be just what you’re looking for. Here we show you seven reasons why…



Priors Lea is set on the edge of East Hanney, which is ideally situated between the Chiltern Hills, the North Wessex Downs and the Cotswolds, making it the perfect location for those who enjoy walking, cycling and outdoor pursuits. With miles of public footpaths and tracks, including The Ridgeway, England’s oldest path – there’s plenty to explore outdoors.



Despite its rural location, East Hanney is very well connected by road to neighbouring towns such as Abingdon, Didcot and Oxford. Didcot Parkway station is just a 15 minute drive from Priors Lea, with fast trains to commuter hubs including Oxford, Reading and Swindon. London Paddington is also just 44 minutes by train from Didcot Parkway.



For those looking to raise a family in the quintessential English countryside, East Hanney is the place to consider. Priors Lea is situated just outside of the village, and is connected via a dedicated footpath. In the village, there is an Ofsted-rated Good primary school and a selection of popular local secondary schools nearby, such as King Alfred’s Academy, Didcot Girls’ School, Larkmead School and the new Aureus School. Residents can also find the Black Horse village pub in East Hanney, famed for its real ales and traditional pub foods, as well as Italian restaurant La Fontana, and local bakery L & S Cakes For All Occasions. All three local eateries are currently operating takeaway services during the ongoing lockdown.



East Hanney and its sister village West Hanney are steeped in history with many listed buildings lining the streets. St James the Great Church in West Hanney is even recorded to date back to the 13th Century. To pay homage to the architectural history within East Hanney, all new homes at Priors Lea have been designed to complement traditional Oxfordshire village vernaculars while still retaining all the benefits of a new home. There are eight different house styles, with architectural features such as gabled porches, horizontal weatherboarding, red/orange brickwork, and varied roofscapes throughout the development.



East Hanney is a charming village, with an excellent sense of community throughout. The local Parish Council hosts regular meetings, and keeps all residents updated via a dedicated Facebook group. During recent times, local support groups have also been established to support the most vulnerable within the community.



At Priors Lea, each new home benefits from a generously sized garden, ideal for enjoying the sunshine or creating your very own outdoor haven. The development itself is enclosed within trees and includes a public open space and play area for residents to enjoy, while the surrounding area is flanked with open countryside and fields.
