Miller Homes - Oak Grange, GL55
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as being a pleasant place to live. So here’s some useful information about the area around Oak Grange.
There are rail services from Honeybourne Station, four miles away, to Worcester, Oxford, Reading and London Paddington, with the capital two hours away by train. Moreton in Marsh Station is on the same line and, although slightly further from the village, is served by buses running six times a day from Stratford-upon-Avon through Mickleton, with extra services on Saturdays. A few other, less frequent, buses link the village with Cheltenham and Evesham.
Stratford-upon-Avon is less than 20 minutes’ drive away, and Birmingham can be reached in around an hour. Mickleton’s shops include a post office and newsagent, a greengrocer, a family butcher
specialising in local produce, and a Village Store that, as well as stocking locally produced food alongside general groceries, incorporates a delicatessen and an off-licence. There are also farm shops around the area, and a garage on the eastern edge of the village. Shops in nearby Chipping Camden include a small Co-op supermarket.
Mickleton sits within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, presenting endless opportunities for exploring the magnificent Cotswold countryside and the charming villages scattered throughout the area. Nearby Meon Hill, the northern most of the Cotswold heights, is rich in mystery and legend, with some tales telling how it was formed by a clod thrown by the devil, and others maintaining the devil stood on top to kick a boulder at Evesham Abbey. In addition to the miles of open countryside, local attractions include the National Trusts’ Hidcote Gardens, and Kiftsgate House.
There are two traditional pubs in the village. The Butchers Arms, less than a quarter of a mile away, is a family-run bar and restaurant with a skittle alley, and the Kings Arms Inn and Dining Room dates back to 1735. There is also a hotel, the Three Ways, home of The Pudding Club.Mickleton Primary and Nursery School is situated just a few yards from Oak Grange. The school has strong community links and a choice of after-school clubs ranging from cross country running to organising the school newspaper. Following its most recent Ofsted inspection, the school was awarded overall ‘good’ status, with the behaviour and safety of the children recognised as ‘outstanding’. Children normally move on to Chipping Camden School Academy, less than four miles away and linked by a school bus service. There is also a full time GP practice, a dental surgery and a pharmacy in Chipping Camden.
