Field View is tucked away from the road, backing onto open fields, said to be where Oliver Cromwell’s troops camped after the Battle of Oxford during the English Civil War. The quiet waterways, graceful stately homes and gently rolling fields of the Cherwell valley define the area around Cromwell Fields. Yet these houses are just eight miles from central Oxford, allowing home and work to be worlds apart. The charming town of Woodstock is just a short drive away and offers a good choice of restaurants and independent shops. It is also is home to world-famous Blenheim Palace, great for cycling and long walks in the Palace grounds.
