Houses and flats for sale in Didcot
The area surrounding Didcot is extremely sought after with a number of very pretty villages that have a mixture of large village houses and pretty thatched cottages. These villages are extremely popular, especially for those moving out of London due to Didcot’s mainline station that offers a direct line back to London Paddington in under 45 minutes. Both residential and commercial developers have invested heavily in this small market town which has vastly improved the town centre.
Didcot has always been known for its old power station cooling towers, which had almost become a famous feature of the landscape. However, 3 of these towers were removed in July 2014 and plans are in place to remove the remaining towers. For many this has vastly improved the aesthetics of the area and has further increased the desirability of the area which is already known for its beautiful landscapes including The Wittenham Clumps, The Thames River, the nearby Chilterns and the Vale of the White Horse.
