Long Crendon Area Guide

Long Crendon has a bustling community, and plenty of great schools on the doorstep.

Living in Long Crendon

Long Crendon has a varied stock of properties from terraced properties to grade II listed thatched properties. Close proximity to areas of work, shops or transport links makes Long Crendon a popular choice. There’s a small square in the village centre with a Bestbuy and a butcher, and you can pick up homemade bread, veg, dairy etc from the farm shop at Long Crendon Manor, which is just past the square. You’ll need to head five minutes down the road into market town Thame for a big supermarket (there’s a decent Waitrose there), plus a Tuesday street market and a clutch of good indie shops Here are some of our properties currently available in Long Crendon.

Learning in Long Crendon

The village’s primary school, which has been rated “outstanding” by Ofsted since 2008, is massively over-subscribed, and nearby Cuddington and Haddenham both have the same issue. Good independent prep options are the co-ed Ashfold School (15 mins away), Godstowe in Wycombe (20 mins) or Headington Girls, Dragon School or Oxford High in Oxford (30 mins). Long Crendon school kids are unusual in falling automatically into catchment for the outstanding secondary comprehensive Lord Williams‘ in Thame and also for Bucks grammar schools – there are three excellent grammars in Aylesbury and another three in High Wycombe.

Relaxing in Long Crendon

Waddesdon Manor, the Rothschild house and gardens, is 20 minutes away and provides your hearty walks and fine art fixes. Also 20 minutes away but a somewhat different proposition is that glittering palace of designer delights, Bicester Village. Oxford with its historic buildings, world-class Ashmolean museum and shiny modern Westgate Centre (if you’re going to eat in a shopping mall, make it this one – the roof terrace restaurants are great) is a 30 minute drive, while closer to home, the picture-perfect village of Brill is a 10 minute drive and its famous hilly common, presided over by a 17th century windmill, is a locals’ favourite spot for burning off some energy.

Highlight of Long Crendon

If you fancy some fine dining you could try The Angel – well known and highly regarded restaurant, famous for its fish dishes but offering much more besides. Also, there is The Mole & Chicken – a mile outside the village in the hamlet of Easington, a ‘gastro pub’ that also provides accommodation.
