Travelling to Charney Manor

The manor stands on the south side of Charney Bassett, next to the village church, clearly signposted on the Lyford road.

By train: There are regular trains from Paddington, Oxford, Birmingham and the north to Didcot Parkway, the nearest mainline station about 12 miles from the Manor. Fast trains from Paddington take about 40 mins. Taxis are available from Didcot; if possible, those coming by train travel at the same time (usually the 14.15 arriving 14.56) so they can share a taxi which is currently c. £24.
