With unique architectural features, every home is charmingly different. Inside, generously sized rooms, and luxury fittings, fixtures and  finishes provide a refined living space. Just as your lifestyle changes over time, so too can your house, adapting with ease to meet your changing needs.

Life at Tannery Gardens is all about doing more of what you enjoy most. To make this possible, a dedicated Estate Manager takes care of the gardens, property exteriors and overall development. This leaves you free to just enjoy your wonderful surroundings without the worry of day-to-day maintenance.

At first glance, Bampton may look familiar to you.  Made famous by Downton Abbey, Bampton is where the fictitious village of Downton is filmed.  However there is so much more to this charming former market town than period dramas. Located just south of the Cotswolds, close to the River Thames, Bampton has been settled in since the Iron Age, and boasts plenty of longstanding traditions. You can take part in – or simply sit back and enjoy – Bampton’s Day of Dance, the Annual Shirt Race and regular Mummers’ plays. Bampton conveniently provides all the essential amenities too. In easy walking distance of Tannery Gardens, you can find multiple cafés, pubs, butchers, a supermarket, hairdressers and a doctor’s surgery.

Surrounded by not one, but three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – the Chilterns, North Wessex Downs and the Cotswolds – there are plenty of rambling routes, picturesque villages and famous landmarks to explore.

Theatre and Cinema.

Catch all the latest box office hits at Cineworld Cinema in nearby Witney. For large touring theatre productions, opera and ballet, New Theatre Oxford will provide plenty of dates for the diary.


To see how the other half lived, visit the magnificent Blenheim Palace and marvel at its collection of art, antiques and tapestries – all set in  acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. Or for a trip back in time, visit Oxford’s world-renowned Ashmolean Museum.


Head to Burford for a quintessential Cotswold experience. Famous for its beautiful high street, you can find everything from charming independent shops and antique emporiums to delicious delis and specialist craft shops.

Eating Out.

On your doorstep is The Cotswold Plough, serving delicious hearty food in stunning surroundings – a superb spot for Sunday lunch. With options for fine dining close by, you will be spoilt for choice.

Golf and Tennis.

Nearby Witney Lakes Resort’s par 71 golf course is one of the best courses in Oxfordshire, or if you are more adept at swinging a racket than a golf club, Bampton has its very own Tennis Club.


As a county that is famed for its countryside, Oxfordshire is teaming with wonderful wildlife. Just a stone’s throw from Bampton is Chimney Meadows Nature Reserve, where colourful wildflower meadows make the perfect home for wading birds like the Curlew.
