Location

Ewelme is a village with more than its fair share of charming buildings and street-scenes. The Terrace makes a strong contribution to the Conservation Area and is noted for its late 19th century gothic vernacular architecture, with arched doors and windows and playful use of poly-chromatic brickwork.

Nestled in the Chiltern Hills' Area of Outstanding Nature Beauty is the delightful village of Ewelme. The picturesque village is noted for history; Thomas Chaucer and Jerome K. Jerome are both buried at the Church of St. Mary, the village's 15th century primary school is thought to have to have the oldest continually used school buildings in England and the manor is formerly the site of a Tudor palace. The nearby market town of Wallingford (4 miles) has an excellent range of amenities including a Waitrose supermarket, independent shops, banks, restaurants, a monthly Farmer's market and other leisure facilities such as a thriving theatre and sports centre.
