New homes in Didcot

New homes in Didcot

Make the move 

Located just nine miles south of Oxford, buying a new home in Didcot lets you enjoy the best of both worlds. A great option for commuters, and as the largest town in South Oxfordshire, it has plenty to keep you entertained. 

Things to see and do 

One of Didcot’s highlights is its Railway Centre, which takes you back to the era of steam trains. See coaches, wagons, buildings and relics, along with a recreation of Brunel’s broad gauge railway. Various family events are held throughout the year, such as Days out with Thomas the Tank Engine.

Old Didcot also presents a window into the past, with the lovely All Saints Church, which dates back to the 11th century.

The Orchard Shopping Centre is the place to head for those in need of retail therapy. 30 stores and restaurants provide plenty of choice, alongside an entertainment centre and cinema. 

Cornerstone Arts Centre runs a series of workshops and classes that are great for kids, such as ‘drop in and doodle’ and ‘clay sculpture: dinosaurs’. It also presents a range of music performances, art, comedy and theatre.

Didcot also provides many peaceful areas. Ladygrove Park and Lakes is great for fishing enthusiasts, while lovely walks among wildlife can also be enjoyed.

Take a dip at Didcot Wave Leisure Pool, which even has its own beach. With a wave machine, and flume ride it’s popular with families, and the 50-station gym is great if you want to keep fit.


There are several primary and secondary schools on offer in Didcot and the surrounding area of Oxfordshire. Oxford is also located just nine miles away, home to the world-renowned University of Oxford.
