Here we share news and views on both the local letting market in & around Oxfordshire and all planned and recent legislation.


Georgian Elegance meets 21st Century styling in Abingdon – Be the first to reserve


One of the finest Georgian houses to rent in the oldest part of Abingdon’s historic town centre, Twickenham House, is in the final stages of being restored into eight individual apartments carefully blending high-spec modern amenities with the character and elegance of the original building.

The first four apartments are being released for letting now, and interested applicants can arrange advance viewings by appointment. They will be ready and completed to move into from early December.  These apartments represent a really unique opportunity to rent a totally renovated apartment (with the added advantage of parking) in this fine historic building dating from 1756 giving all the advantages of living in the town centre with riverside walks nearby.

Cranbourne Homes, the developers and owners of Twickenham House are also redeveloping The Old Gaol nearby. The Old Gaol was built by Napoleonic prisoners of war between 1805 –1811, and latterly it became a leisure centre. This development, when it is complete, will include apartments and restaurants, shops and cafes.  There will eventually be direct riverside access from the communal garden at Twickenham House and residents of Twickenham House can enjoy the proposed enhanced facilities there too.

These one and two bedroom apartments each have their own character features. Just enter the property reference number in the box at the top right of this page for full details:-

  • 6932 – Ground floor one bedroom apartment with feature fireplace
  • 6933 – Lower ground floor two bedroom, two bathroom apartment & private patio
  • 6934 – First floor one bedroom apartment with feature fireplace
  • 6935 – Top floor two bedroom apartment with feature turret room

The rents range from £800 pcm to £1000 pcm on an unfurnished basis.  An optional furniture rental package can be available – price on request.

Abingdon is ideally placed for South Oxfordshire’s ‘Science Vale’ – Culham, Harwell, Rutherford Appleton and Milton Park at Didcot, hence the very solid demand for houses to rent in Abingdon which we see all year round.  There is easy access to the A34, M40 and a fast commuter rail link from nearby Didcot with a 35 minute journey time to London Paddington. Oxford is a quick drive of about 7 miles, but also has an excellent bus service and rents in Abingdon represent great value too.
